Not able to connect to projector


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

What button do i press on my acer extensa 5235 to use a monitor instead of the laptop screen as it is smashed


1. Down near the botton left corner of your keyboard, you should see a blue colored "Fn" key.
2. Look at your top row of Function Keys F1-F12. Locate the one with a picture of a monitor on it. It is typically F5 or F7.
3. While Holding the "Fn" key, hit the F5 or F7 key. Give the laptop about 3 seconds to switch between modes.

That should switch the display over for you.

I have got acer aspire net book size is 8.9 inch. Ca i connect it to external monitor


Hi.

Sure you can with a standard VGA video cable.

Maybe you will have to change your screen resolution to get the best display layout.

Hope it helps!

Blank screen after boting up


There should be a display toggle key on your keyboard. This will toggle the display from the external display to the laptop lcd. Try pressing the Fn + F5 key to toggle the display.

No LCD connectivity


Hello, I am using a Viewsonic lcd projector with my new Acer Aspire One. I did not have connectivity off the bat. Here's what I did: 1. Downloaded driver (unsigned, not the signed version worked - ie not os-specific) for the lcd projector to the Acer. Restart Acer. 2. With lcd projector connected to Acer, toggle function key & F5. But then, continue holding down the function key. A screen pops up with icons for laptop, laptop/monitor, dual monitor, and lcd projector. You continue to hold down the function key and then press the F5 key to move to the desired device. I had to repeat the same process to restore my Acer screen to the original proportion when not using lcd projector. I'm not sure if both steps 1 and 2 are necessary, but I did it simultaneously, so I'm not sure of the origin of success.

Hi I have the same problem with my aspire 5570z, I have tried pressing F5...and still the LCD projector will not pick it up. It was working fine last week...and now is not :( Any suggestions?


Try pressing the function key and f5 at the same time.

Failing that, right click on the background of your desktop while you have the computer plugged in, and select display properties. Go over to monitors and make sure you have the desired settings, such as mirror display.

Hope this helps,

Nathan.

Blank screen on start up on Acer Extensa 4620


Did you switch displays to the external video? Try hitting the Fn key and whichever function key at the top of the keyboard has a little TV screen icon over it at the same time.
