im pretty surethis is an hardware issue but maybe someone can help me. when my laptop (acer aspire as5251-1805) starts up, everything runs normal except for sound and the screen which is black. keyboard brightness/sound controls do nothing, and i have3 no idea what to do.
also, considering the Acer startup doesnt show, im certain this is hardware. please tell me i don't need a new computer.
EDIT: upon further investigation, i have found that the screen isn't black, just extremely dim, but brightness still does nothing
