Acer Aspire One-722 netbook screen randomly becomes hazy and hangs up


As given in the title, my Acer Aspire One 722's screen suddenly becomes hazy -- like TV with really bad reception -- and the machine stops responding. This can happen anywhere between 5 minutes to 2 hours since starting up. After this happens, my only option is to restart with all data lost.

I have tried to identify the cause of this and have failed. Could you please help me? I would be very grateful.

This info may/may not help you:

1) This happens even when the netbook is plugged in, as well as when it's on battery.
2)Soon after buying the machine, I noticed that the bottom panel was not fully fixed and the warranty sticker was broken.
3)I have also experienced some audio issues with this machine.

Thanking you,

  1. Could be heat related so ensure all your vents are clean from dust and lint.
  2. Might not be... it started only a few days after purchase, at first I thought it may be something to do with charging so I only ran it after it had charged (not plugged in) but then it started happening on battery as well.

    (UPDATE): I said that it can even happen just 5 minutes after startup. Can a machine really heat up so much in 5 minutes?
  3. No returns accepted?
  4. Haven't tried... (do they do that?) but it would hardly happen now, it's been two years since I bought this. (If you're thinking that I should have asked earlier, I am a somewhat new user)

    Check their support site for warranty period.
  6. OK, thanks. Will do.
