Question about Acer Aspire 5000 Notebook

1 Answer

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!

I've tried to connect my laptop to a projector but i just get the information projected but cant be seen on my screen of the laptop


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

Hi.

Sure you can with a standard VGA video cable.

Maybe you will have to change your screen resolution to get the best display layout.

Hope it helps!

No display and no external display everything worked fine until i replaced the cdrw


Connect first the external monitor in another computer to make sure that the monitor is still working.

You have to either switch or share the display to the external monitor. Locate the Fn button and the monitor icon in one of the function keys (from F1-F12) on your computer's keyboard.

Once you find it, press Fn + F# at the same time. (example: Fn + F8) and the display should transfer to the external monitor.
