Hi,

Did you get your motherboard's brand name (like Acer) when you switch on your laptop, If yes, you'll see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS at the bottom of your screen.

Go to the BIOS --> Make sure hard disk is detected in the BIOS -- > Set your first boot device as "Hard disk" --> Save the settings and exit from the BIOS.

Good Luck!

Ok,

This seems to be due to a driver problem. Go to acer website, enter your model regarding your operating system then download first your chipset driver then the VGA driver. Install them and see if the problem still exist.

Alrite but u think do i need to just install the driver or uninstall first and then re-install. because the driver are already the updated one on it .

Ok, try to uninstall and re-install

PS: If it work perfectly to an external monitor, do you think to press the Fn key + F5 to see if the screen will not show something!

i tried the fn+f5 key its does show the laptop and external bt as soon i select the laptop it again shoes the blank screen on ecternal . Do u think it has to do anything with the bios because i updated the bios without any reason and i also have a switchable graphics card.

Yes, it might be the update of the bios, I suggest you to re-install the version of your bios you used before this problem occurs.

Ok, re-install the drivers first and if the problem still exist, downgrade your version of bios to 1.27
