I bought this laptop about 6 months ago. Its an Acer laptop that I got for around $550 on a special from Circuit City. Anyways, I really like the computer, except for one issue. When I turn off the computer or close it (which should make it idle), the computer screen goes blank. And to turn on my computer, it takes me about 10 times pushing the power button. What happens is I push the button, the computer fires up, but nothing appears on the screen except a blank screen. So I just have to cut off the power by taking out the battery and then hitting the power button again. Its very annoying. Also sometimes when I have the computer running and its not in a set position (if its on my lap or something) the computer will sometimes freeze if I place it onto a surface. So yea, what do you think the deal is? I didnt buy any kind of warranty so I would like to fix whatever the issue is myself.
