Hey Druid, sorry to hear about the um malfunction. I wanted to jump on and let you know that you can go to a computer store and for about $10 buy a cable. This cable will connect from your Acer to a flat screen TV. Its the trapezoid shaped plug in with all the posts on the side of the laptop and a matching one on the TV. This will at least allow you to view what you are doing so you can extract you data to a memory stick just in case something goes wrong.
Edit to add: we use this(my wifes lappy is also an Acer) to watch movies as a family from time to time when we are streaming them online. We have Netflix running through the xbox but for the newer releases we use her lappy.edit on 25-7-2012 by Agarta because: (no reason given)

That is not normal. Something is bothering him and I don't think it's the game.edit on 25-7-2012 by Maluhia because: (no reason given)

That is the plan until I find the best price on a replacement screen.
I'll figure something out.

You let a young child use expensive equipment - the lesson is yours as much as hisedit on 25-7-2012 by Hawking because: (no reason given)
