I need to show Powerpoint slides from my Acer Aspire One netbook. When I connect to the projector it does not work. Why?


Have you pressed Fn+F5? It commands using external monitor/ projector. Try this:
1. Connect to projector with projector in ON position
2. Restart your PC
If it won't work:
1. Restart your PC, press F8 frequently, choose "enable vga mode"

Cannot connect acer aspire one to projector. it's first detected when netbook is booting up but the connection dispappears (no input on projector) when the computer is fully on.


Hi,
It should be a keyboard toggle to switch display to the projector, usually Fn + F5, sometimes you have to tap the F5 key a couple of times for the display to switch over.


Good luck

No LCD connectivity


Hello, I am using a Viewsonic lcd projector with my new Acer Aspire One. I did not have connectivity off the bat. Here's what I did: 1. Downloaded driver (unsigned, not the signed version worked - ie not os-specific) for the lcd projector to the Acer. Restart Acer. 2. With lcd projector connected to Acer, toggle function key & F5. But then, continue holding down the function key. A screen pops up with icons for laptop, laptop/monitor, dual monitor, and lcd projector. You continue to hold down the function key and then press the F5 key to move to the desired device. I had to repeat the same process to restore my Acer screen to the original proportion when not using lcd projector. I'm not sure if both steps 1 and 2 are necessary, but I did it simultaneously, so I'm not sure of the origin of success.
