Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I have an acer aspire 3680 laptop and when i plug in an external monitor it appears to work properly until windows starts the windows please wait shows on both screens but when my desktop appears the external monitor turns off ........then the screen says it has no signal.The device manager is telling me the monitor is installed. Am i missing some software? Where can i get it ? I have checked the acer site for new drivers but I'm unsure if i need one of them.
No mention of how much ram installed ???
Are you using ACER GRIDVISTA
This program handles the multi screen out put
Standard Screen Properties,,,,,,,
DESKTOP>Right click properties
With both screens connected.
There should be two windows displayed ,
a highlighted white one and a grey one
Should display a number 1 on the screen it has attached.
Should display a number 2 on the external screen.
Once you get IDENTIFY to work then set resolution sizes of both individual screen.Apply and ok to save settings
If using GRIDVISTA then set the setting for the output functions and save theme as a theme BOTH or LAPTOP AND EXTERNAL MONITOR and its accessible from the desktop right click.
Good luck I have a couple of these I use for my Media Centre wirelessly networked thru the house.Great machines.
