The key to know which key to Press and Hold is notice the color of the rupee symbol on key 4, then Press and Hold either the FN function key, Alt key or Ctrl that is the same color as the rupee.

Cannot connect acer pc to tv


The PC and the TV need to have the same kind of connection such as VGA or HDMI. If not you will need some type of converter between the two to make them compatible. Once you have them connected set the TV's input to PC, Computer or HDMI if you use the HDMI connection. Reboot the computer and see if the image appears on the TV. If not you can hit the FN Function key on the computer + the F1 thru F12 key that corresponds to the External Display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit might have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that corresponds to the external display to toggle the display between the computer, the tv or show it on both the tv and the computer.

You may have (accidentally) activated the Windows "Accessibility" tools. One of the tools is "Sticky Keys". For example, people with impaired motor-skills can press CTRL, and then press ALT, and then press DELETE, to achieve the 'CTRL-ALT-DELETE' key-sequence.

Turn off "Sticky Keys". Or, restart your computer to start without the "Accessibility" tools.

My screen on my laptop is broken. Can i plug a monitor into my laptop?


1) connect your external monitor to the laptop and then switch the monitor on
2) boot up the laptop
3) after it has successfully booted, you need to identify which function key toggles the external monitor on/off
4) you should be able to do this by holding down the Fn key and trying each of the F keys in turn, waiting a few seconds after pressing each one
5) begin by holding down "Fn" + "F3", "Fn" + "F4", "Fn" + "F5" etc.

If this doesn't work, it may be worth examining all the keys and look for a small monitor symbol on one of the keys. If you find this symbol, hold down the Fn key and then hit the corresponding key with the monitor symbol.

Switch NumLk off

Usually this is done by pressing Fn & F11 keys together
