You have to select which display option you want. Press the fn key(bottom left) and F5 key together. You may have to hold for a few seconds.

I'm trying to hook up a projector to my Acer laptop. i've tried function plus F5...nothing. Help


Make sure that your projector is set to the correct input. I have seen this happen many times, and that is likely the problem. Do not hesitate to comment if this does not solve your problem.

I have a acer model aspire 5517 can i hook it to my tv so can watch netflix movies etc.??? and if so how do u hook it up...what would i need..cables etc..thanks


hi i believe u have posted this question on the wrong section but i can help:-) well you can connect ur computer to the tv providing you have a vga port on your tv most lcd type tvs have this it is the little blue port on the side of your laptop there should also be one on your tv...what to do is buy a vga male to male cable and connect them both go to the menu in ur tv and select either pc or vga if you cant find it post me the make and model of your tv.....then when you have done that i believe it is the blue 'fn' button on your laptop and the f5 button which has a picture of two screens in blue you hold in fn and the f5 button and it will switch between.....there is also a more advanced way of doing it but you would need to post the exact model number from the bottom of the laptop in the more advanced way it will be able to have display on the tv and laptop at the same time for example instead of just one or the other.......thanks arron please contact me if you have anymore trouble

When I connect my aspire 5315 to the tv and boot the computer it shows the boot on the tv but suddenly stops when the computer comes up and does not show the monitor again. I press Fn f4 and nothing...


Fn + F5 is what changes external display mode on acer laptops. Press and hold Fn, then press and release F5 to change between three modes:
Laptop display only.
Both displays.
External display only.
OR....
You need to go into your display properties and extend your desktop onto the external monitor. If this doesn't solve it, let me know :)

I have an Acer Aspire netbook that I want to hook to a projector. I finally got the right cord to hook it up, but it will not display on the projector screen.


One of the F keys will toggle between the Laptop Screen and the VGA output - look at the F keys and see if one has a picture of a screen often F4 / F5 - needs to be used with the FN key
FN key+ F4 Key (Or which ever key has the symbol on)
It will toggle between <laptop screen only><laptop screen and VGA output><VGA output only> Not necessarily in that order

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!!
