Re: My acer laptop screen crack and I trid to coonnect it...
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).

Try booting into safe mode. Chances are that you have set the screen resolution and refresh rate to some value that the LCD cannot handle. That is why it works until Windows takes over. Once you are in Safe Mode you can get things under control.
Assuming that it is an "external" monitor, and not the built-in LCD screen in your notebook, you have to tell your computer which option you want:
* output only to internal screen
* output only to external monitor
* output to both internal & external.
Look for a BLUE-coloured 'FN' key on your keyboard, and a button that cycles through the above 3 settings. Push that button while HOLDING the 'FN' key down.
If your computer is set to "internal-only", then the external monitor will _stay_ in "power-save" mode, although the monitor will work fine if connected to some other "desktop" computer.
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.
Sounds like you resolution is too high or vista doesn't recognise your driver.
Try starting in Safe Mode by powering up your PC and tapping the F8 key until you see a menu. Select Safe Mode from the menu. Once in safe mode change the resolution to 800x600 then restart in normal mode.
If that doesn't work then download and install the correct drivers for your display card here;
Try to see if it will boot in safe mode, by pressing F8 while the laptop boots up. If it allows you to boot in safe mode, try to do a system restore when you know that laptop was working with no problems. You can do this by clicking on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date and time when you know that the laptop was working with no problems. If this does not work or you cannot boot in safe mode (be aware that everything will look big in safe mode and when the computer reboots if asked how you want to start windows, choose start windows normally), try doing a recovery. This will restore your computer to the factory default settings when you purchased it. You can do this by booting the computer, when the acer screen appears hold down the ALT key and continuously press F10, this will open the recovery manager and you can restore it from there.
Try going into cmos and enabling multi display (external)
Also u can boot into safe mode and restore windows to a previous day
