Hi. I have an Acer 5532. Its only 2 years old (roughly), and very well taken care of. I started having an issue where the screen wouldnt stay on, but if I close the lid or FN + f5 or f6, it would come on, and then go off. I was told it was the inverter, which makes some sense. I just took everything apart and reseated all of the connections to make sure that was good, but.....
My concern is the fact that I have multiple laptops that are years older that have working displays, and this was a pretty good computer the whole time I have had it.. It just doesnt make sense that the inverter would go out that quick..
Oh, and yes, it displays perfectly through the VGA port.
