I have an acer aspire 5535 that is having some issues. I suspect it is the GPU but am not certain. There is no display at all. I can install a monitor and boot vista. I have read online about issues with this pc and GPU issus. I have removed the heat sink and have removed the foam covering it, then put on heat sink compound, but it is still not working. I have also replaced the inverter.
The problem originated with a screen that started to get smaller, then, when the unit (screen) was moved, it would come back, then it just died.
