Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
According to the Aspire 3000 User Guide, you should be able to use Fn and F5 (not F6) to toggle the display selection. Try that first. If that doesn't resolve the problem...
Your laptop probably has the SiS Mirage 2 graphics processor. It's max resolution is 1024 x 768. The Sceptre DCL9C will likely default at 1280 x 1240. Try backing the resolution (in Control Panel) down to 1024 x 768 - for the external monitor. Also, hit the AUTO button on the monitor. It might reset itself to be compatible with the SiS video. Lastly, download the latest drivers for your OS and the SiS Mirage 2 video adapter.
I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.
