Question about Acer Computers & Internet

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 to switch to vga flat screen on my hp g72-227wm it has a broken lcd screen


Once you connect the Flat screen using a VGA cable or an HDMI cable it should automatically switch the screen to the secondary display. If it doesn't do that then you can press the Fn key which is located at the bottom of the keyboard next to the Ctrl key. Holding the Fn key press the F6 key on the top row of your keyboard. This will help you to switch the display.

Brighten display screen


Normally, on the keyboard of your netbook, there is a "Fn" key next to the bottom left "Ctrl" key.
after you finish booting up and have the screen veiw, press and hold the "Fn" key, then at the top there are a row of "F' keys, usually the F6 key is the key you would press to increase the brightness of your display. Each time you press the key the brightness should increase, if you press it pass the maximum brightness it will go back to a low brightness and then increase in brightness each time you press the "F6" key.

Remember, you have to hold down the "Fn" key as you press and release the "F6" key.

I just had my Emachines D520 laptop display replaced because it was cracked. The new display is too bright, and the Fn keys that are supposed to control brightness don't work properly. When I use these...


Try going to control panel, then device manager, and try right clicking and updating all drivers that have to do with graphics or your screen. If this doesn't do the trick then try finding the display drivers manually.

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.

My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open


Change the settings from the display settings panel. (Right click on the desktop and go to display settings)
You should see 2 monitors graphically represented there. 
You can make the monitor that is greyed out active by right clicking on the monitor, and selecting active.

My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open


Hi,
I think you're trying to output the screen to external monitor right ? So when you press Fn+F6 this will output to external monitor only but if you do it again it will output to both (External and you LCD) and if you repeat the step again you're back to normal.
goodluck,takecare.
