You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.
There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.
1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)
I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.
This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

I had the same problem, I removed the bettery while it was still plugged in, tested it, then plugged it back and and now all is fine.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Try Screen switch function to switch from Internal screen to External monitor to Both.
Normally FN + F4 (on Compaq or FN + F7 on Lenovo check the Function symbols on your Keyboard: allow few seconds after command to refresh configuration.
try Safe mode also. to check if display shows in VGA format.

I contacted Acer about the problem and their solution was to buy a new
battery since the computer was not longer under warranty and they
really didn't know what was going on! In talking with friends, and
checking on-line, the consensus is that laptop batteries don't last
more than two years. You can keep them charged, let them run down,
recharge them frequently: they still will only last about two years.
I just find it hard to believe that Acer has never heard of this problem, especially when I'm reading similar posts on this site.
Anyway, as deviant00 suggested, I got a new battery on Amazon.com for $56. They offered $30 off if I signed up for their credit card. The final cost was $26. The battery came today and the computer works like a charm. I also followed jell587's advice and scanned the computer with the Malware he suggested:no viruses.
The solution for me was buy another battery; expect it to last for a couple of years.
Thanks for all the help.
