    I have a an Acer Aspire 5102WLMi notebook that the screen just went completely white on and then upon restarting it nothing was displayed, but the computer at least seems to turn on. I've tried plugging it into an LCD monitor but there still isn't anything displayed. I should note the laptop isn't mine. This is how I received it and what I was told. Is it possible for the on-board video to go bad? Or any ideas of things I could try to pin-point the problem?

    Thanks

    If you have tried an external monitor (which you said you have) and nothing displayed on boot whilst plugged into the external monitor, I would say that the built-in video is bad. I would advise your friend/client/relative to purchase a new laptop or see if you can find a cheap, used mobo on Ebay to replace it because the video cannot easily be replaced (soldered onto motherboard).

    Yeah, I was assuming it was the built in video or something else that would require the motherboard to be fixed, but I called Acer to make sure I wasn't missing anything. The support guy didn't have any ideas, but lucky enough today was the last day of the warranty for the computer, so she can get it fixed by just paying the shipping. Anyways, thanks for replying.
