Acer 3100 i've been trying to use a external monitor because the monitor on the laptop is broken. But for some reason it doesn't work with the external monitor. I also would like to know would the inverter, if damaged, cause any connectability issues? Thanks in Advance.

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.

Lenovo g550 laptop with an external monitor would only display of broken original screen after crash dump


Firstly you need to get your external monitor working. Have you tried pressing FN+F3 while turned on, (may take several presses).

If you can get the external monitor working then you'll need to run windows in safe mode and try removing any new drivers you installed. or try a 'Last Known good' on start up this depends on the OS version.

Powered but not booting. No visual. HDD light not doing anything.


Remove the RAM and start, see if it beeps and/or shows something on the screen. Try with the external screen too.
Let me know how it goes

Go into your display settings. It should show at least two different monitors. Your laptop monitor and the external one your plugged into. Click on the external one and click on the two check boxes. Click on extend the desktop into this monitor first. Then click on this is my main monitor. Reboot your computer and it should be on your external monitor.

Sometimes when the charger connector breaks, it shorts out the charging module on the motherboard, blowing it. It can also blow the external power supply.

If you can find someone else with a similar power supply, try using it. If that doesn't work, you've got bigger issues.

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.
