Try holding down the Function key (Fn), then pressing F5. Wait a few seconds. On most laptop, each press of the F5 key will toggle between laptop display only, projector only and Dual (same image on both - my favorite).

You'll probably see a little Monitor-shaped icon on the F5 key. It's possible it's another function key - on Dells it's usually F8.

Acer laptop does not boot up but gives no errors

Go to the Acer Website and see if you can update your BIOS. That's where the problem lies, in the future it is a good troubleshooting tip to either use a digital camera to take a picture of all your settings in case you need to revert back. You will have to go thru each section of the BIOS and change one thing at a time, reboot, and continue process until you find the error.

A usb ethernet adapter does not cost much and no troubleshooting needed.
I assume your trying to get your built-in card to trigger have you checked the bios to be certain it is enabled.
and go to control panel check the system device manager to see what it says about the ethernet.
does it show up under my network places and if it does is it bridged. Get properties on it.
