You need to toggle the screen on by use of a key on the keyboard... do you see one that resembles a monitor...

My screen is broken trying to figure out how to run external monitor i have an Acer aspire 5570z


Well, glue won't work so you are looking at a new screen in the range of $75-100 plus installation. Is the notebook worth it or should you buy a new one?
I do this for fun & feed back not $$

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???


Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer Aspire One Screen Wont Work!!


try hooking it up to an external monitor using a VGA cable. If you see something on the external monitor, then it's the screen that's bad, if you still see nothing, then it's more than likely the video card.

Acer 3100 screen wont turn on.


Have you tried hooking an external monitor to the system? If that works you may have accidently switched the screen to an outside monitor. Or you could have a bad connection. Try starting in safe mode and see if it works.

The external display adapter should be PnP (plug and play). If the external monitor doesn't work and niether does the laptop screen, then it sounds like your OB video is bad. It's hard to say without looking at it but that is my best guess. Have you updated the bios or anything? It will be hard to fix without being able to see what is going on during the boot process. When you say inverter I assume you are talking about the AC adapter? If the indicator light is lit on the power pak then the adapter is likely ok.

Acer Aspire 3100 series. Display screen getting dark


This is such a user error. I had the same problem on my 3100-1718. It was as simple as holding down the Fn key and using the left and right arrow keys to change the brightness... I am a goofball for ever letting this stay dark for a month !

Have you tried to disconnect the external monitor and just booting to the laptop? If this works, then use the "e" key next to the power button to add the second monitor.
