There is a 15 pin connector on the side or back. With the laptop turned off, connect the monitor cable to the laptop and then turn it back off. Press the Fn key and the F7 key at the same time to switch between the two displays. Always disconnect and connect the monitor with the laptop off.

Is your laptop booting on switching it on, ie, it is showing hard disk activity and shows initial boot screen. If yes, while switching on press F8 button very frequently. You will get a screen showing the options for booting. Choose a safe mode option and restore your computer to an earlier date. This may solve your problem. On the other hand just switching on the computer shows monitor with yellow and black stripes, you may have to take it to a service center.

From your description, I am sure the LCD screen is cracked and needs to be replaced. To check if the laptop is functioning, connect an external monitor to the video port on the laptop, power up the monitor first and then boot up your laptop. If the monitor displays the normal Windows image and the programs operate then the laptop is OK and you need to replace the LCD screen.

Monitor is broken would like to hook up a desktop monitor

Does that monitor work on another computer?..if yes,then try uninstalling your display adapter,loacated in devices manager,reboot your system and windows will reload the drivers.Make sure you have the monitor plugged in when you do this.You may also want to try setting your windows color resolution to 800x600(medium),as the monitor may not handle higher resolution...good luck..please let me know if that works:)

Ok. I have this exact same laptop and not so much the exact same issue. But I can tell you, screen issues are one of the problems that goes with a laptop that is GOING TO FAIL.

Go to and you will see almost 2,000 users with the same issue. The problem lies with the nVIDIA GFX chip on the motherboard. THE ISSUE IS UNREPAIRABLE. Any repairs will force the laptop to fail again.

This issue has actually landed me in small claims court where I am suing for hte full cost of this laptop because not only is hte laptop defective, nVIDIA admitted it, and HP covered it up.

Join us at and we will give you the know how to get this issue fixed/your $ back. We even have links to all of the information!

Dell monitor and acer one laptop

Yes, you can connect. BUT, after that right click on the desktop and select Properties->Settings. There you will find two monitor icons. The left one is your Acer display while the right one is your new Dell Display. Select the right one and configure it. You should have the same resolution and color as the main Acer display to use it optimally.

Laptop monitor has a big black spot

If it is actually booting, then you should hear some beeps as it starts, if there are actual problems with the system &/or hard drive.. You need to count the beeps & report them here, so we can decide what the problem is.. If the system is starting up ok & it's a screen related fault, the easiest way to test is to connect an external monitor, via the external monitor port. Most laptops have them. In fact I know the Dell 1100 does. Once you have connected the monitor, there is a sequence of keys on the keyboard to press, to switch to the external monitor. This will prove where the problem is..

However, I have some sad news for you.. Apparently there is a law suit against Dell (Class Action in fact) for overheating CPUs.

I think your 'video' problem is most likely because of that, then a faulty screen. There is a rather complicated procedure for fixing the problem here:

This something you should really think about doing, if it's already not too late. I know it looks complicated, but if you know someone who knows how to use tools, it should be done.

Also, if you want to join the class action.. Here it is:

Lots of luck with all this. Feel free to talk if you need help.
