Question about Acer PC Desktops

My Acer TM230 mod. M2132 doesn't keep the screen on. Screen comes on then goes to a shadow type. If you press ctrl - Fn - F6, the screen comes back as it should, but only for about 5 sec.

How do i use the boxed options on certain keys?


Prt SC (Print Screen) does NOT send the screen to the printer!!
If your windows desktop is showing, Print Screen will capture the ENTIRE screen to the clipboard - Open Paint and Ctrl-V to paste the captured image into paint (or other graphics program).
If you want to capture only the active screen, use Alt-Prt Sc and do the same with it.
Take screen capture print your screen Windows Help

Not sure, but try loading Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot and lowering screen resolution. In Safe Mode you can even run System Restore. It load to a previous date that you choose.

Help.. my acer aspire computer screen has turned vertical on my notebook and the cursor isn't working.. what do I do?


Well, to get the screen back to normal, press Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow. As for the cursor, try rebooting the computer after changing the screen back to normal. If that doesn't work, try another external mouse to get to the mouse settings from the control panel and see if anything has changed.
I hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

Hi there,

On the acer one hold down the blue Fn button and look for a screen like caracter that is blue too. I think its F5 or F6. Press one of those while the Fn is holded down.

Good luck.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.
