Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I have an Acer Aspire 3680 laptop with a completely busted screen. I cannot make out any type of display on the screen when I turn the laptop on. All the colors are mixed together and lines are constantly flying across the screen. This laptop has alot of important information on it that I need to get to. Can anyone guide me through the process of hooking up an external monitor? I know that I need an S video cable. I'm not sure what toggle buttons I need to use in order to get the display on the external monitor. Is there any hope for my old laptop? Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Sincerely, Lindsey
there is a button combination with the function key and f5 or f6 that will turn on the external monitor. otherwise i would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the part. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party Acer Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is available on ebay. Here's an Acer Repair guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

I personally own a acer aspire 3680 and i too had a broken screen. I found a new one on ebay for 150.00. And i replaced it myself! as for connecting a monitor to it all you should need to do is plug a monitor into the jack on the left side of it. (its blue) and turn it on! as for the toggle you need to press and hold the fn button and press the f5 or f6 key at the same time(not 100% sure which my ,laptop isnt here right now but its one of those)
Hope this helps!
