    same thing - no change . also , the person who gave me the "remove the battery" suggestion; that didn't work either

  • bob_sabo Nov 06, 2008

    the laptop screen does the same thing in safe mode as it does when running regular mode. cuts out after 5 seconds. The only place it doesn't is on the external monitor.

    that means the the system is working good ... the only part which is creating an issue is the display

    you did not tell me that does the system do the same in safe mode with the laptop screen or it allows you to work around

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

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.

I want an Acer Traveler back to the beginning. May I ask was it F11?


I am assuming you are referring to gaining access to the BIOS.

This is a little cheat sheet for the Acer Traveler that should work for you.

Acer - Aspire, Power, Veriton, Extensa, Ferrari, TravelMate, Altos
  • Press Del or F2 immediately after powering on.
  • The BIOS on the Acer Altos 600 server uses the Ctrl+Alt+Esc key and the F1 key for advanced options.
  • Older Acer computers may use also use the F1 or Ctrl+Alt+Esc keys to access BIOS.

I have an ACER Travelmate 230 notebook. The system is working but the monitor does not display anything. I can use the laptop with an external monitor successfully. Is this the end for my laptop?


So after a power up we can deduct that its not a hard drive problem because you have managed to successfully attach an external LCD screen to the system.

It may not nessacarily be the end , laptops are mobile machines and time to time plugs and sockets don't hold their devices in place and in your case most probably one of the two connectors on your laptops LCD screen.

It could possibly be one of these 3 things

1. The ribbon connector which carry's the video signal to your LCD screen has become dislodged you will need to open up your laptop and check this and make sure its seated in its interface properly. This is usually located in the spine of the laptop

2. The power connector on the LCD screen itself which is a small black 3 pronged plug has become loose also open up your laptop and check this

3. when the computer has had time to boot press the fn + F6 on your keyboard , you may have to press this a few times but this is the manual LCD screen off and on button

Tell me how this goes

Cheers

We have an Acer Travelmate 4200 and the screen is too dark how do you brighten the screen??


Most laptops have a function key (F1-12) with a picture that looks like a sun. Press and hold the FN button and the appropriate Function key. You should get a "slider" to adjust the contrast and brightness..

Some laptops also come with a program to make other display adjustments. Look at the Control Panel to see if you have one of those on your list. If not, check the "Display" application on the Control Panel, and under "Settings" see if you can adjust contrast or brightness that way.

Hi, Does it do this in any part of when loading up for example in bios and in main windows etc. Have you checked graphics card or onboard graphics drivers but reistalling, tried a different monitor, changed the keyboard. Check the keyboard setting aswell and display settig in control panel and let me know the outcome.Thanks
