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!!

My daughter just dropped her acer aspire netbook. Only half of the screen is visible the other half is white and black with a line down the middle


Hi,

Dropping the netbook will have probably broken the LCD screen.

There is no other way to repair the problem without replacing the screen itself. You can however use a external monitor and use the keyboard to toggle between the two screens.

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear but unfortunately LCD screens are fragile so a good knock can crack them causing only one half or the part or the screen which is not broken to show. The backlight itself sounds like its working as there is still light showing behind the cracks.


Regards.

Acer aspire 5220 booting problem


Try connecting to an external monitor. If it displays on the external monitor then the LCD is probably dead. If it doesn't display on the external monitor, its a problem with the video card.
