Question about Acer Aspire 5000 Notebook

Can't switch to external monitor using Fn5

I have an Acer Aspire 5000 and recently had the OS reinstalled. Since then, the Fn 5 button to switch to an external moniter (TV in this case) doesn't work. The other Fn buttons seem to work with the exception of this one.

Any help would be appreciated!

Make sure you have used the FN + F5 button to switch your laptop to external display.

Also is you are using VGA to component lead be aware that many of these dont work

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!!

Acer aspire 3050 black


refer to ur user manual to see which key for brightness e.g.fn+f 9
(reduce brightness)if havnt got one can easily download one of net.try to swich screen to monitor.connect external moniter and press fn+f 5.(refer to manual maybe different key)
press down and release screen lid button see if any response.if all fail need to disassemble.
remove screw in about middle of pc underneath.this ia retainer screw for key board.remove screws dirrectly behind screen to remove plate with buttons.then can get access to keyboard and lift away (do not disconnect it just rest it on screen or front of pc )check cables from mother board to screen.check inverter.
all these are worth checking but initially sounds like inverter faulty.
