I have an Acer Aspire5517 only for a few months, it happened in recent that the screen looks like dead and shows nothing when I turn the power on. can not use F8 or F10 keys during booting, please help

yes, try use f8 and see if you can go into safe mode and check what is wrong with the dsiplay screen.

try changing the screen mode to by press the "fn" key + F5 and use an external screen to confirm whether the laptop is working properly or not.

Connectted to big screen monitor, the button Fn and F5 not work. what is the reason?

What is the screen Resolution set to on your current Display?

Try setting your current Display to 1024x768, then try the FN+F5 key
this might work. IF your current Display is set to high the other screen might not show any picture at all.

I connected Samsung SyncMaster930b to Acer 3610. How can I switch to big screen or see both. Tnanks

It depends on your video card if the split screen feature is supported. Better check its documentation. Or you may opt to check it in Display Properties (Windows Platform)

My acer laptop screen crack and I trid to coonnect it to monitor

You will more than likely need to enable the external monitor port of the laptop, using the Fn key, and one of the F Keys along the top. On the Travelmate's it's usually F5, so hold the Fn Key and press F5, with the monitor connected and powered up. You should find it springs into life. If not, you need to look for the monitor key on your laptop. It will look like an F Key along the top, but will have a little symbol showing two monitors on it (two rounded edge rectangles).

Fn F5 key in my Travelmate2310 stopped working

Was Fn+F5 working before? Why do you 'have to use with external display", because LCD no display any more or...?

If non above, you better check from BIOS and chang display to Both LCD and VGA.

If Fn+F5 was working before but not now, could be something else wrong... I need know more details....
