I have an acer travel mate 2300 and i'm trying to connect it to another monitor. I have physically connected them but the second monitor doesn't seem to be recieving a signal. Do i have to change any settings? There doesn;t appear to be a button to switch between the two but i might just be being stupid

    Hi again.
    The keyboard toggle is Fn-F5, if this is not working open a txt document and check the keys to make sure they work.

    Good luck

My acer travel mate 2000 powers up fine but the monitor is black any solutions?


You can try this:
-Turn off
-Remove battery and remove ac power cable
-Hold down power button without cable and battery for 60 seconds
-Connect your power cable and push power button



Try with another monitor if possible. It may be motherboard issue or bad connectors.

I have taken the hard drive from my laptop, a acer travell mate 2300 and I am trying to find a connection on it so I can access some of the information. Help


Connect your laptop's hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then plug this adapter into the USB port of a working computer.
The computer will see this USB adapter/hard drive as an external storage device. You can then open the various folders and files on this hard disk and copy and or backup your data.

Cannot get the Fn-F5 to work on Acer AspireOne


You can switch to anexternal monitor by two methods.1. Connect the externalmonitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and thelaptop. The video information will automatically switch to the externalmonitor.2. If you power up thelaptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor bypressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make andmodel laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCDscreen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fnkey plus one of the function key. Here is a list of keycombinations for some of the laptops :-IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7HP and Compaq = Fn + F4Toshiba = Fn + F5Dell = 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!

Power On / No Boot


Is it POSTing? Do parts make noise and then theres a Beep? The beep means it finished the Power On Self Test. Once it posts then it will show splash screen or black screen with it testing hard drives disk drives etc.. If no post is the led lit that says A/C is connected? before you attempt to turn on? If no post and good ac to rear connector then you probably need a new motherboard.

White screen


This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.
