How to connect/configure my acer aspire 4736Z to my LCD TV using the HDMI port/cable of my laptop? i tried to connect the HDMI cable but my laptop hangs...please help


for HDMI, I guess you just connect it with HDMI cable to your LCD TV, and use the FN+F5 or F6 to switch display from laptop's LCD to external. I think it should be the same way as using projector.

Toggle Between Laptop and Monitor


Fn + F5 toggles the display output, the trick here to wait each time you hit this combination because it goes through several options. Hit it once and it may want to go to just the external, then both the laptop screen and the external. etc. Now Fn + F6 turns the backlight bulb off on the internal monitor to save energy. Now I am giving up the link to your service manual, it is in PDF format so you can make a copy for yourself and keep on the laptop, print it or save it to a flash so you can reference it later. I believe if you take the keyboard off and disconnect the video lead on the left side where the display plugs into the motherboard, then when you power the laptop back up it will default to the external cord and you can use the laptop without any switching. That is what I am doing with an Aspire 5920 that I am rebuilding. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
Just copy and paste the link below to you internet address bar and hit enter.

Hello, Computer = Acer Aspire 3680 Problem = Loaned to a friend in need, with computer working fine. When it came back, the screen resolution is so large, I can only see the left top quarter of the screen....


If using Vista, connect the external monitor try pressing Fn+ F5 or F6. If this doesn't work, try right-click desktop. select personalize, selct display setting at the bottom of list. in Display setting window click Identify Monitors on top right. if 2 pops up on external monitor, monitors are arranged properly. If external say 1 external is set as default and switch by clicking 1 and clicking pull down menu and select Generic PnP. then, set Resolution to high. Also make sure that Extend the desktop to this computer, isn't checked. Another test would be to check Exten Desktop to this Computer and select This is My Main Computer.
Otherwise you may want to try to Rollback the Driver for video card, an update from Microsoft my have been installed while your friend had it and these usually mess up video displays. You can also click Advanced Settings in Display Settings and click through the tabs that pop up to check operations and hardware acceleration settings.

Blank screen on my acer aspire 3680 laptop


Sounds like you have gotten stuck in presentation mode. Hold down the function Key (Fn) its blue, and then hit the (F5) key once. If the screen doesn't come back, press both again.

Lcd screen broke external monitor wont work


Sounds like you resolution is too high or vista doesn't recognise your driver.

Try starting in Safe Mode by powering up your PC and tapping the F8 key until you see a menu. Select Safe Mode from the menu. Once in safe mode change the resolution to 800x600 then restart in normal mode.

If that doesn't work then download and install the correct drivers for your display card here;

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_3680/

Once downloaded, you may need to install it in safe made once again.

Thanks

Your screen sounds fine, most likely just your backlight going out, either that or you could have hit the key for using an external monitor (function f6 is the LCD/external monitor switch for my computer). I'd look into the function f6 and play around with that, if not you can just buy a new backlight from ebay or an internet supplier.

I have a Acer Aspire 3000 notebook computer that I want to hook up to a 19" external monitor (Septre LCD Model DCL9C) I thoughout that after plugging it in to the rear monitor port adn power source...


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.
Regards,
