I am currently working around the clock to learn opengl. Now I just got a new laptop. It is a acer aspire 3004WCLi and I am having issues with it. Well this problem started right out of the box actually. When I turned on the laptop the acer logo doesn't come on, I hear windows start up, and I see the backlight. But no display from the monitor itself. So I sent it in to those aliens at "CUSTOMER SERVICE". they replaced the main board and did a fresh re-install. Now when I get it back I turn it on, and it works. But, I restarted it after installing my compiler. I run into the same problem again, I get a backlight, and a windows startup, and no display. Well to my luck the vga works, but its quite unfortunate I need a moniotr to use my laptop. So if anyone has any solutions on how to fix this, and by "solutions I mean anything but customer service", please respond to this. Thanks in advance, Forestlaw89

uh, whatever a hardware solution can be, you'll need serious SMD soldering skills for it. the guys at the customer service will just unplug, take out, put a new board in, re-connect stuff. and you've still got a warranty for it, eh?

in the mean time you can just practice opengl on the box you're writing from ;)
