Screen won't work on external monitor


Most laptops have a "video" option:
* output only to internal screen
* output only to external screen
* output to both screens

Be sure to select the 2nd or 3rd option.

Also, reset your internal screen-resolution to 1024 by 768;
hopefully, your external screen will support this resolution.

How to repair and remove blue screen in Acer Aspire M5641


The resolution depends on *why* you're getting the blue screen. Start by disconnecting all of the drives, USB devices, and other peripherals. Connect just the monitor, power up, and see if it blue screens. If that works, next add just one RAM module and see if it blue screens. Then, add just the main hard drive and see if it blue screens. Keep adding one device at a time until you find the one that's causing the blue screen error. Once you've identified the bad part, get back to us, and we can discuss diagnosing or replacing it.

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.
