Hi Tjw!

 

When you say turn on, do you see the Acer logo, then it goes black or is the screen completely dead?

 

Is there any hard drive activity, IE does the HD light blink?

 

Can you hear Windows start up or is there no sound?

 

If it is any of the above, it MAY be a graphics problem, or it could be a dead motherboard. Post back with some more information....

Re: Acer aspire 8735g black screen

The laptop was working fine , I turned it off and it wouldnt come back on, so knowing the graphics cards can be a problem i opened it up and seen the mother board was burnt where the graphics card plugs in, so i replaced the motherboard, but when i turned the laptop on I get a blank screen straight away, the fan is spining and i can hear the hard drive, the power light and the multimedia lights come on but nothing on the screen or on external monitor, is there a way to test the graphics card before i buy a new 1

I'm not aware of testing laptop graphics cards before you buy them. Perhaps your local PC store can?
