Connecting to projector

Is there another way to connect the acer aspire to a projector? The fn+F5 does not do it . I was able to connect before but not anymore. Is there something I did to the start up programs or to the settings that caused this to no longer send the screen to the projector? Ugh! Please help I am a teacher and use my computer all the time to project info on my board. Thank you:-)

HI-

Try tapping the FN+F5 keys twice, or try FN+F3 keys for acer laptops. MAke sure that cables are connected tightly at both ends.

Hope this helps

I need to show Powerpoint slides from my Acer Aspire One netbook. When I connect to the projector it does not work. Why?


Have you pressed Fn+F5? It commands using external monitor/ projector. Try this:
1. Connect to projector with projector in ON position
2. Restart your PC
If it won't work:
1. Restart your PC, press F8 frequently, choose "enable vga mode"

After i plugged-in a cord connected to a LCD projector, my touchpad stopped working. What should I do?


You probably pressed fn + F7 by mistake when you were switching to the projector (fn+F5 to change monitor)....fn+F7 disables the touchpad on Acer laptops.

Press fn+F7 again. Betcha that fixes it. If not, let me know and I can help you with troubleshooting :)

Cannot connect acer aspire one to projector. it's first detected when netbook is booting up but the connection dispappears (no input on projector) when the computer is fully on.


Hi,
It should be a keyboard toggle to switch display to the projector, usually Fn + F5, sometimes you have to tap the F5 key a couple of times for the display to switch over.


Good luck

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.

ACER Aspire One AOA150-1635 and Sharp XR32-X projector


you need to connect it with VGA. then enable the 2nd monitor

now you should have a wallpaper on the projector, you can drag objects to it by draging them out from the screen.

if you don't have the 2nd screen option. Then hold down the blue FN button and then tap F5 see if the picture comes, the FN + F5 will swap around with the outputs.

Acer Aspire 3680 + View Sonic Projector


does it work with external monitor ?
the key should be Fn+F5 or Fn+F6
I believe you need to hold fn and press f5 to choose the target (lcd, monitor, lcd and monitor).
