Acer 5515 on external monitor


Get an VGA cable and connect your external monitor to your laptop via a VGA port that is usually used for digital projectors. In this VGA port, you can initiate dual monitors.

Then look at your keyboard and look an icon in your function keys (F1 to F12) that looks like a pair of an LCD and a TV like this {LCD icon/ TV icon}. In most laptop keyboards, this is located in F4.

When found, and with the external monitor hooked to the laptop via VGA port using a VGA cable, press and hold down the FN key and press the function key where the icons described above is located. Example, FN + F4 to toggle a single and a dual monitor.

Give it a try.

I don't have video on my 400sd4 laptop


If the system is booting up completely and you can hear is starting up then the problem is limited to your video.
First try this
Boot up your system so that it's in windows (listen for start sounds and windows music etc)
once you believe the system is fully booted press and hold the FN key. While holding FN press and release the F3 key one time and then let go of FN. Wait a few second and see if the LCD screen comes on. If it does not try FN-F3 a couple more time, waiting a few second in between.
If that does not work then try plugging in and external monitor to verify that the system is working otherwise. If the external monitor does not come on right away then press Fn-F3 again with it attached to allow the system to send a signal to the external port.
If it works on the external monitor but cannot come on the LCD screen, the that indicates a problen inside your laptop or LCD screen.

Second Monitor will not activate


It could be anything.

But here are some things I'd try.

Updating the video drivers.

Check to see if you have the correct output settings in the bios.

Try using the video card software like (catalyst, etc.)

What do you mean by it takes awhile to come on? Sometimes with these monitors depending on the type you have it takes time for the PC to pick up the signal. I have my PC hooked up to a KVM switch and it takes about 10 to 20 seconds for my monitors signal to be recognized.
