My son has an ACER ASPIRE ONE AO751H netbbook, which we have owned for over a year and is out of warranty. Yesterday problems started to occur with the display. Horizontal lines appeared on the screen from top to bottom. The screen seemed to flicker quite a bit when the lines appeared. There was quite a lot of them and they were very thin.
When this initially happened I moved the screen backwards and forwards, thinking it maybe a cable problem and it did stop for a few seconds, but then continued and then the image froze. I was unable to get the pointer to move on the screen and nothing happened when I pressed any of the keys.
I switched off the netbook and removed the battery and started it up again using the power cable. When it eventually came on the same thing happened again. I then connected the netbook upto an external monitor and had the same problems again.
From this I'm assuming it's not a problem with the netbook screen, but something else. Has anybody got any ideas as to the cause of this and if so what are my possible solutions.
