Ok, first, as for your hard drive, 9 times out of 10 your hard drive is fine if you don't hear a clicking noise. Also have you try-ed plugging in your s-video cable to the monitor or vga cable to the screen? after you turn on the laptop with the power on? I can help you with hooking up you laptop to the monitor, just drop me your e-mail address.

Have a nice day!

My Netbook Acer Aspire One will not hook up to the LCD projector.


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to anexternal monitor or data projector by two methods.1. Connect the externalmonitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and thelaptop. The video information will automatically switch to the externalmonitor.2. If you power up thelaptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor bypressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make andmodel laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCDscreen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fnkey plus one of the function key. Here is a list of keycombinations for some of the laptops :-IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7HP and Compaq = Fn + F4Toshiba = Fn + F5Dell = Fn + F8

My laptop screen shows black even though laptop is able to power up.. What does this mean?


The backlight on the monitor might be burnt out, hook up the computer to an external monitor just to rule out the computer itself. If it is burnt out then the only option would be to send it in for repair.

My laptop, an Acer Aspire 5715z, has a big ol' white patch on it with a smaller one at the top of the white one. It covers about half of the screen, and it has blue around the start of the white line.


Oh okay. Your screen is physically cracked. Its broken, its going to need to be replaced. Thats why a part of the screen is coming and then you see splotches on the screen. Looks like somebody hit directly with something or stepped on it. If you turn the laptop off and shine a light on it, you might be able to see where the crack originated.

In the meantime until you get another lcd screen, you can hook up an external monitor to the laptop and use it like that for now.

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???


Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
