What's up with my Acer Aspire 5532? The screen backlight keeps randomly turning off.
Earlier this week, while using my laptop, the screen went black. The lights on the keyboard (power light/internet light) were still on. My computer didn’t shut off. I closed the laptop to lock it, and opened it again. The screen was lit up in the log on screen and everything went fine from there. The blank screen happened to me again randomly later, and I solved it the same way; Close it and open it. The next day the light turned off, so I closed the laptop opened it, and the back-light turned off just a second after I opened it. I found a new solution and that was to: Hold [FN] and press [F6] twice (as to turn off the back-light and turn it back on). I had to do this a couple of times yesterday. And today, after coming back to my locked computer, I had a fight with it pressing fn and f6 a dozen times because the back-light would not stay on for more than 2 seconds but finally I won the fight.
What could be wrong with my laptop and is this a common problem? And how would I fix it? Thanks
