    I have an Acer TravelMate 4720 that won't connect to a projector either. The laptop doesn't recognize that the projector and the projector says that 'no connection'.

    My Acer Aspire One 150 A won't connect to the projector properly either - doesn't show me the desktop.

    I tried the listed solution to no result - just the desktop wallpaper shows, no icons, nor nothing.

    I read I shoud "go to advanced display properties and set the output to clone instead of extend desktop", but how do I do that?

Hey,

On your desktop, right click, select properties.
now go to settings.

do you see screen number 2? select screen number 2 and check that the screen is enabled if not place a check on the checkbox and enable the monitor, now check the resolution and colors adjust them as you see fit, to move objects to the projector display drag them out from your laptop monitor.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

    on my computer, I can drag objects from my main monitor to the one above it and the other one on the side, just draging them out from that side will move them to the other display.



    if you have any questions let me know.

I think I have the same computer. It has Intel graphics so it is harder to find information. Here's what I do.
1. Right click on desktop
2. You should see two graphics options. Clock on either of them.
3a. Graphics Options > Output To > Choose Monitor, Clone, or Extended Desktop.
3b. Graphics Properties... gives you a menu driven procedure to do the same thing.
If these don't work, open the Control Panel and click on Intel GMA

I need to show Powerpoint slides from my Acer Aspire One netbook. When I connect to the projector it does not work. Why?


Have you pressed Fn+F5? It commands using external monitor/ projector. Try this:
1. Connect to projector with projector in ON position
2. Restart your PC
If it won't work:
1. Restart your PC, press F8 frequently, choose "enable vga mode"

Cannot connect acer aspire one to projector. it's first detected when netbook is booting up but the connection dispappears (no input on projector) when the computer is fully on.


Hi,
It should be a keyboard toggle to switch display to the projector, usually Fn + F5, sometimes you have to tap the F5 key a couple of times for the display to switch over.


Good luck

No LCD connectivity


Hello, I am using a Viewsonic lcd projector with my new Acer Aspire One. I did not have connectivity off the bat. Here's what I did: 1. Downloaded driver (unsigned, not the signed version worked - ie not os-specific) for the lcd projector to the Acer. Restart Acer. 2. With lcd projector connected to Acer, toggle function key & F5. But then, continue holding down the function key. A screen pops up with icons for laptop, laptop/monitor, dual monitor, and lcd projector. You continue to hold down the function key and then press the F5 key to move to the desired device. I had to repeat the same process to restore my Acer screen to the original proportion when not using lcd projector. I'm not sure if both steps 1 and 2 are necessary, but I did it simultaneously, so I'm not sure of the origin of success.

ACER Aspire One AOA150-1635 and Sharp XR32-X projector


you need to connect it with VGA. then enable the 2nd monitor

4972c40.jpg
now you should have a wallpaper on the projector, you can drag objects to it by draging them out from the screen.

if you don't have the 2nd screen option. Then hold down the blue FN button and then tap F5 see if the picture comes, the FN + F5 will swap around with the outputs.

Acer Aspire 3680 + View Sonic Projector


does it work with external monitor ?
the key should be Fn+F5 or Fn+F6
I believe you need to hold fn and press f5 to choose the target (lcd, monitor, lcd and monitor).
