Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

Function F6 works only sometimes to blackout screen on acer aspire 5315

Hello, when i press function F6 on my laptop acer aspire 5315, it should turn off the backlight on my screen. This works most of the time, however, sometimes it does nothing at all. There doesnt appear to be any contributing factors, such as, running certain programs, power options etc. to explain why this happens only "some" of the time, and then comes good when I try to use it another time. Any suggestions?

I just came here looking for a solution to the same problem. I have an Aspire 1800 which has a front panel of buttons for the Arcade mode. Basically i just wiped all the buttons again resonably vigiously as i was pissed off and low and behold the FnF6 works again. I tried this after i read another artical suggesting the removal of the touchpad driver. so obviously something is still depressed much like a sticky key which basically switches the screen immediatly back on as i had a flicker at least when i did FnF6. Hope this helps..

I have a Acer Aspire laptop 4810T. It turns on perfectly fine and everything shows up on the screen but it's so hard to see. The the screen almost appears to be black.


Press Fn key (at bottom left of keyboard) and while holding it down, press F6 key (at top center of keyboard). This should turn on the display screen backlight which had been turned of to save power.

I'm trying to hokk up my old dell moniter,i brook the screen


Hello,

First, make sure that your old dell monitor is working. Also make sure that the VGA out-port on your laptop is also working (by using a known good screen on it first)

Connect the Dell screen onto the VGA port of the laptop, then use "FN and F6" to source to the Dell monitor as external unit. There should be a mini screen that pops up where you can choose the monitor with the FN F6 key combination.

Your screen sounds fine, most likely just your backlight going out, either that or you could have hit the key for using an external monitor (function f6 is the LCD/external monitor switch for my computer). I'd look into the function f6 and play around with that, if not you can just buy a new backlight from ebay or an internet supplier.

Black screen after windows xp screen nothing else


Sometimes the function keys get depressed by accident and it takes away your display. Press the FN+F5 and FN+F6 three times each and see if your display comes back on.
