It is your motherboard or your video card. If you have a VGA cord connect it to your computer and hook it up to your tv or a computer monitor. If something shows up, you need a new video card. If nothing shows up, you need a new mother board or buy a new computer and use the old hard drive as an external hard drive using a hdd to usb cable.
Make sure your VGA cable works by using it on another computer or desktop just to rule out the possibility of a defective VGA cable. If the cable is good, then boot your computer as normal without the VGA cord and then once it is booted up, plug the VGA cable in, go to the start menu and type "multiple" into the search box. then click on "Set up your computer to use multiple monitors" and you should be able to fix it using those settings.
Hope this helps,
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.
External display only.
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 :)
That sort of message comes up when your computer is unable to boot to the hard drive. Those messages basically mean that it is trying to boot from a network, (which it isn't hooked upt to). Your hard drive could have failed, or your boot sequence could have been inadvertently changed too.
First, make sure your thumb drive is not installed in the laptop, as this can cause the problem too.
You can check your boot sequence by rebooting your computer, and entering the BIOS, usually by hitting F1 or F2 on start up. Tab over to the Boot section, and see what the boot order is: Usually it should be: CDROM drive, Then Hard drive, then removeable drives.
If this is ok, check and make sure that your hard drive is showing up in the BIOS on the main page too.
If not, it might be bad....
Hope this helps!
If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.
Try the following:
Power up the projector first. With the laptop hooked up but not powered on once projector is warming up begin booting laptop. If there is still no display once its projector is fully warmed up and laptop booted you can try using the (fn) key with the laptop monitor switching function key usually F4 which switches the display monitor to show on external, external and laptop or just laptop. If this all fails try changing resolution of laptop to something that might be more projector friendly.
Let me know how you go.
You can hook two computers together using a crossover cable. They may have them at radio shack, if not you can find one on the web for cheap. Then you can put the install in one cd and have it install in the other computer.
try pressing FN key and F8 key to switch between screens. If that doesn't help right click on desktop, select properties, settings tab, click advanced button. there may be something in there to force the TV.
