I have no idea if I am posting this on the right place so apologies if not. I have an Aspire 8920G and everytime I start up, the screen goes blank. I have to keep turning it on and off loads of times before it eventually works. Can anyone please help because its driving me mad, Thanks.

This forum is for Magix products, if the issue you are having is on startup of the Acer then this is most likely one of 2 causes:

  1. a Windows issue

  2. given the age of the Asus, the hard drive is beginning to fail

In either case you need to see a computer technician for advice.

This topic will be closed if the issue does not relate to a Magix product.

The screen is either on its way out, or check cables or reinstall drivers. usually a black screen is signs of failed ram memory. possible lcd backlight has failed on your screen. Ps if you can swap out memory, see if that works, if not buy a new laptop.
