Acer laptop black/blinking screen -- urgh
I'm gonna try to fix it myself, but not sure if the problem is simple enough for that.
I've already tried what I they call a power drain (removing battery and trying to start up without power)
Next up: RAM stick removal.
There are definately a few things I think I can do BEFORE I give up at take it to a repair person at the flea market.
A lot of these videos suggest trying an external monitor as a test, and using a USB external drive to bring over files downloaded from the Acer website. I don't have fancy stuff like that.
(Come to think of it, maybe I should look on Acer's website before YouTube)
This was a pretty good video
And this show the same things, but more angles from a different guy
