It looks like I have anoither issue with an Acer laptop I got last year. It died on me 3 months after I purchased it and Acer did not want to repair it under warranty arguing it was a software issue. Eventually after I complained and threatened different people and dept. they repaired it at no cost. Read some other people had similar experience, for instance a school in England that threatened to call the police - no kidding- after CS went dead , and it still didn't do it. Anyway... Now the screen starts acting up, itgoes black from time to time , at firdst it lasted just one second or two, now it happens more frequently and can last as long 10 seconds or so. I am being told this could be a connection issue and I should send it back before warranty expiration. Last time was the worst customer service ordeal I ever experienced, so I am reluctant to do that. Anyone has had a similar problem, and does it get worse ?
