    Hi, my laptop could not display properly even at POST..Bios .. and windows
    (appeared as random characters, lines). Occasionally, the it will display
    properly... but not for long.
    I have done the following with no avail
    1. removed bios battery
    2. removed lcd and diaplay on external mnitor
    3. replaced memory
    4. removed HDD
    5. removed optical drive
    However it does boot into windows, can hear the start up melody.

    Could anyone suggest me any ideas.. I got a feeling its the mobo, just
    never seen this problem before. :(

    Sounds like it's losing sync with the video card (bios update may fix it).
    Or it's a loose connection. Sounds like it needs to go back to acer.
