Unknown Laptop issue

279 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Heerman30
Here's what I'm working with:
Acer Aspire V5-571p laptop.

I have reset the Bios, held the power button for 2 minutes, and even replaced the mobo battery, laptop battery. As I'm installing Windows 10 from USB, at approximately 50%, my screen goes black, and on the far left side of the screen there is a vertical dotted red line. Could this signify anything? I have watched youtube video after YouTube video, but to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any replies and time taking to help me out.

My suspect is that the screen has gone bad. Red dotted line is the indicator.
This makes a little sense as the screen does appear to glitch out during the windows installation process.
Just to be sure, re-generate another Windows setup DVD or USB memory stick with the MS Media Creation Tool. Just to verify that it is not the installation media that is causing the problem.
