Was Fn+F5 working before? Why do you 'have to use with external display", because LCD no display any more or...?

If non above, you better check from BIOS and chang display to Both LCD and VGA.

If Fn+F5 was working before but not now, could be something else wrong... I need know more details....

How do i fix a split screen of my Toshiba c600d-t36b laptop


The quickest way to change the display output settings is to use the
display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order
(the last two options are available if an external monitor is
connected):
? Built-in display only
? Built-in display and external monitor (simultaneously)
? External monitor only
? Built-in display and TV (or other external video device)
? TV (or other external video device)
? External monitor and TV
? Built-in display and external monitor (extended mode)
? Built-in display and TV (extended mode)
? External monitor and TV (extended mode)
? Swap-Switch primary display between internal display
and external monitor when using extended desktop

Not able to connect to projector


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

No video signal from hmdi connection laptop to tv


Your laptop has at least 3 display options;

1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external display device
3) External display device ONLY

Press the Fn key down, and hold it down. Tap once on the F5 key.
(The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.
Also make sure the HDTV is set.

My screen went white, how can I fix this?


Don't freak out!

You just tapped the Display Toggle-Over key.

Hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap ONCE on the F5 key.
Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

There are at least 3 display options for your laptop, Shivam;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external display
3) External display ONLY

You set it by accident to external display ONLY.

Model acer travelmate 4000 nodisplay on lcd and external monitor


You say the trouble is with the keyboard. Can you attach an external keyboard via USB and see if you can push Fn key with F5 (I think it is the F5 key - try Fn with others - keep Fn pressed and repeatedly press the F5 or F6 etc.) several times to see if the screen toggles between LCD and external monitor. For this to work you will have to restart the computer after attaching the external keyboard. Press the start button until the computer goes off, and press again to restart.

Itf you ascertain that the trouble is with the 99.N7082.01D, make sure to try to fit it in correctly, or perhaps the Fn key has some dust or liquid in it so it does not function. Then you have to try to clean it from the inside after you disassemble.

Screen not working


It could be the 'back light' is burned out.
Or
Press Fn and F5 simultaneously to make sure the display
priority is not set for the built-in screen.
Or
Press the 'brightness up' key a few times.

Display problems
Here are some typical display problems and their solutions:
The screen is blank.
Display Auto Off may have gone into effect. Press any key to
activate the screen.
You may have activated the instant password feature by pressing
Fn and F1 simultaneously. If you have registered a password, press
any key, type the password and press Enter. If no password is
registered, press any key. The screen reactivates and allows you to
continue working.
If you are using the built-in screen, make sure the display priority is
not set for an external monitor. To do this, press Fn and F5
simultaneously (once). If this does not correct the problem, press Fn
and F5 simultaneously again to return the display priority to its
previous setting.
HINT: Holding the Fn key and pressing the F5 key several times will
advance you through the display options.
If you are using an external monitor:
❖ Check that the monitor is turned on.
❖ Check that the monitor’s power cord/cable is firmly plugged in.
-- Try adjusting the contrast and brightness controls on the
external monitor

Which function key allows to switch to tv


Hi there,
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4    ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center fn + f2 Opens print options window fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser fn + f4 Switches the image among displays fn + f5 Initiates Standby fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness fn + f8 Increases screen brightness fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...
