    shutdown your laptop, remove projector/external monitor, turn it back on. you should get a display on your laptop's LCD, if not, you may have one of these problems: bad LCD, backlight or inverter.

How do I connect the Acer netbook to the TV?


The only option is using the VGA port on the Aspire One to hook it up to the TV.

Your TV must have a VGA in port for your to be able to hook your computer to your TV. All you need is a regular VGA cord.

I have an Acer One netbook and tried to connect it to a projector but the normal looking lead from the projector did not seem to fit. The lead has those two wee screws at the side, and no place for them...


The Acer One netbook has a mini-VGA port on its left side. Page 10 of Acer's QuickGuide shows the port as item 3 External display (VGA) port. But unfortunately, the description shown for it is incorrect.
From your description, your projector's lead likely has a mini-VGA connector on the end as pictured. The connector can simply be plugged into the mini-VGA port but there are no holes beside the port for screws so it would just be a friction fit which should be sufficiently secure for most puposes. The connector and port are mini-DB 15 male and female respectively and can only fit one-way. The port has the wide side of the D on top so you would have to turn the pictured connector over to be able to plug it into the port. Windows XP should be able to detect the projector via plug-and-play installing any display drivers if required. Page 8 of Acer's UserGuide describes Hotkey + Display toggle which switches display output between the display screen, external monitor (if connected) and both. Pressing + with the projector plugged in will bring up a window in the middle of the screen allowing the selection of internal display, external display, both, or a 800x600 VGA projector. If the display is on the projector, unplugging the cable should automatically revert display back to the internal screen. For VGA see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector splines.jpg

I am not getting the screen to display stuff from my computer . I don't know if I hooked it up correctly, I need a walk through.


Double check the connection. Once you are sure that the cable is properly connected and the cable itself is not damaged, you may need to switch the output on your portable PC, assuming that is what you are using, based on the icon. If it is a notebook PC, they often have a switching hotkey command that is used to switch output of video between internal display and external displays. Try that... Also, make sure that the external display is capable of displaying the resolution your PC is sending, as this can also cause it not to work.

One of the # or "F" keys should have a picture of a monitor on it, have you tried them all? Also, this can be achieved through the desktop properties in Windows, last tab, Settings.

Acer Aspire One Screen Wont Work!!


try hooking it up to an external monitor using a VGA cable. If you see something on the external monitor, then it's the screen that's bad, if you still see nothing, then it's more than likely the video card.

Watch out that you haven't switched off the screen by accident. One of the function key combinations toggles between the built-in screen and the VGA socket on the back or side panels to allow the use of either an external monitor or video projector. The key combination toggles three ways: 1) internal screen, 2) external VGA, or 3) both. On my Acer Travelmate 2200, the key combination is <Fn> + <F5>. Please try this first.
