XPS M1210 Laptop turn on but no display


Mke sure your displ;ay is selected, hold down the Fn key and press the F8 key.
Connect a know working monitor to the laptop, again hold down the Fn key while pressing the F8.
If the external monitor works then your display is defective, if not then the onboard video is defective and you will need to replace the mother board.
I hope thisd helps.
Good luck and have a pleasent day.

Hi Henley,

Try holding down the blue fn key, and press and release f5. This key combination changes video output modes on Acer laptops. Also, bring your video resolution down to it's minimal settings and try again. Reply if you still have any issues and I can help further.

Joe

My screen on my laptop is broken. Can i plug a monitor into my laptop?


1) connect your external monitor to the laptop and then switch the monitor on
2) boot up the laptop
3) after it has successfully booted, you need to identify which function key toggles the external monitor on/off
4) you should be able to do this by holding down the Fn key and trying each of the F keys in turn, waiting a few seconds after pressing each one
5) begin by holding down "Fn" + "F3", "Fn" + "F4", "Fn" + "F5" etc.

If this doesn't work, it may be worth examining all the keys and look for a small monitor symbol on one of the keys. If you find this symbol, hold down the Fn key and then hit the corresponding key with the monitor symbol.

I have purchased an AOC 22" monitor to connect to my laptop >>>>>i have connected it but it does not display. What is wrong.


Depending on the laptop. Most have a key on the keyboard to toggle external display. Usually, you have to hold the function key [FN] then push the external display toggle.

My laptop turns on but i get nothing on the screen


Depending on what kind of laptop you have, your button may look different. Look at the Function keys (all those keys up at the top that have F's in front of them) and see if there is another colored symbol on any of them. You should find a colored symbol that looks like a rectangular monitor.

Press another key toward the bottom of your keyboard that probably says "Fn" or some other kind of "Function" key - not Alt, Ctrl, or Shift. Hold that Fn key down while you press the first key you found that looks like a monitor. That will change your laptop video output mode between several different modes like: laptop LCD panel only; LCD panel and external monitor; and external monitor only.

The purpose of this is if you wanted to plug another monitor into the back of your laptop, or a projector for a meeting or presentation, etc.

My laptop will turn on but with no screen


Try unplugging the battery and starting up with power only. Any Luck? If that works the battery can be put back in and try charging again. Another thing to try is to hold down the fn key and press f4 key once. If that doesn't work try again fn and f4. If all else fails try unplug and take out battery. Then take out the memory and put it back in and try to turn the laptop back on.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TURN THE VOLUME UP ON MY TOSHiBA LAPTOP.


On your keyboard is a special key with the letters Fn on it. It has a particular color. Also on your keyboard usually on the Page up and Page down keys should be speaker icons in the same color as the Fn keytop. Also nearby the Page Up Page Down key and usualy the end key is a speaker icon with a line through it.

You press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the Page up Page down or the actual keys that have the speakers on them. To mute or unmute you press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the key that has the speaker with the line through it.

That should give you keyboard control over your speakers.

Additionally, if you double click the speaker icon next to the time display you will bring up the controls for all volumes on your laptop. Check to see that wave is not muted and master is nearly all the way up, the wave scale should be one tick short of the top. For CD Audio, you will want to do the same with that volume slider.

Any other questions just use the comment box to ask.

I have just bought my son a laptop,i cant get connected to my live box it says the wireless is on but the light is not on also on the keyboard i have to hold the fn button down to use the letters m j k l u...


Have a look at the F keys at the top of the keypad. The fn key is a toggle key. It changes the mode to something and then back again when you press it. There will be an F key with a picture of a keyboard on it (probably) (Dont press the one with the the picture of a computer on or your screen will go off)
Press fn and the keyboard Fkey together to toggle back to alpha keyboard rather than numeric.
