Question about Acer Aspire 5735 Notebook

1 Answer

Monitor won't work and keyboard won't work

I think that my monitor and key board on my laptop think that they are hooked up to an external monitor and keyboard. I say this because when I boot my laptop and it goes into windows, I get no visual until I hook up an external monitor. Then I have to hookup up an external mouse in order to move the mouse around. Is there a hotkey I can press to fix my problem?

How to use external monitor on a toshiba laptop with external monitor

It's probably best to buy a keyboard off auction sites or a new screen, the Function keys are not OS sensitive so a different keyboard will not work with them, they are device specific and require special drivers to operate.
Are keys broken or are they just missing? the membrane will still work to a firm press even if the key is missing.

keyboards can be found on auction sites

sorry I can't help more.

Monitor is cracked. Have hooked up a Monitor still cannot get signal. I am guessing there are some buttons on the laptop keyboard that I need to press. Can you help please?

By default, the external monitor connector is turned off. Hold down the Fn key and press F4 to enable the external monitor. If you look closely at the F4 key you'll see it has a little picture of a monitor screen on it. Full information about the other keyboard functions is here at HP.

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 am running Windows XP on my laptop. I plan to give a presentation using Powerpoint, and I'd like to plug a projector into the laptop. I cannot figure out how to play Powerpoint's presentation on the...

Couple ways. If you hook up the projector before turning on the laptop it should work. The preferred way, however, is to 'toggle' to the external moniter on your keyboard. Look for a icon on the Function keys (usually F4 or F5) on the top of your keyboard that looks like an external display. It may have a color, like green. It the lower left there maybe a key of the same color. You need to hold the lower left key while pressing the F key at the top. It will likely toggle between the external monitor only, both monitors, and internal only. Good luck.

Can't get my laptop to display on a monitor.

Most laptops require you to press the Fn (Function) key and another key on the keyboard to activate the external video port, not too sure which button on your model it is, but it should look like a monitor.

Other than that it could be your board is fried. Which will need replacement/ repair.
