Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop

3 Answers

I used The FN and F5 key and it worked

Now my lap top screen is huge? I tried the FN and F5 key to fix it and nothing? I toggled between the pictures. There is a lap top single then a lap top with TV and then just a tv. I tried all three. Tv gives me a blank screen and the other two keep the screen the same?

Hi Trump,

What you are experiencing is the resolution settings of one device being used on the other.

Right click on the desk top
Click properties
Click the settings Tab
On the lower left increase the screen resolution (only a little at a time)
If you can read the screen that comes up, click OK.
If you can't, DO NOTHING. The original screen will return in 15 seconds
Click apply or OK

Hope this helps
Mike

Go to the point where you have a stable picture even if it is huge. Right click on an empty space on the desktop and scroll down to properties. Click on settings and increase the resolution a little at a time hitting apply and checking the display as you go. Keep hitting ok to the display settings if you like them. Find the resolution and display size that suites you.

Hi, I have a problem with Aspire 5570z The problem with 5570z is this: my Screen is blank with power and sound is on.


Unless the backlight has gone bad, try Fn+F5 and Fn+F6 keys to see if your display returns. Fn+F5 toggles to an external screen; Fn+F6 toggles the backlight on and off.

My HP Pavillion M70 monitor is saying "video cable connected?" when I try to use the monitor. I am trying to output my laptop to the monitor because my laptop screen is wearing out, but I cannot get it to...


go into the BIOS settings and tell it to use the LCD/Monitor as a display.

or

press fn key+(F5 or F7 or F8) 1x or 2x or 3x.....

Fn key combination. The Fn key is located at the lower left of the keyboard, normally between the CTRL and the ALT key. Toshiba uses Fn-F5 to toggle between the laptop LCD and an external display. IBM or Lenovo uses FN-F7, Acer varies with the model, using Fn-F5, Fn-F3, Fn-F8, Sony Fn-F7, Dell Fn-F8, HP or Compaq, Fn-F4. There are variations with the age of the laptop and not all manufacturers have standardized on a key combo across the whole range, but you can usually figure it out from the little graphics on the function keys that line the top of the keyboard.

I have an Acer Aspire netbook that I want to hook to a projector. I finally got the right cord to hook it up, but it will not display on the projector screen.


One of the F keys will toggle between the Laptop Screen and the VGA output - look at the F keys and see if one has a picture of a screen often F4 / F5 - needs to be used with the FN key
FN key+ F4 Key (Or which ever key has the symbol on)
It will toggle between <laptop screen only><laptop screen and VGA output><VGA output only> Not necessarily in that order

When i hook my L455 to my sony hdtv the screen on the lap top turns black and the tv only says no signal in the pc mode. do i have to change some settings on my laptop


TV:- probably has a PC input - which is a VGA connector looks like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/SVGA_port.jpg and then you select PC input on the TV to display whats connected to that port Laptop: - Now on the laptop, you will need to select the VGA output to work - thee will be a picture of a screen on one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard, F4, F5 normally on laptops, My Toshiba its F5 ---- (assuming F5) use the FN key and the F5 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>
If you are not using a VGA cable and are connecting by HDMI cable - then there will be a F key to toggle the HDMI output - and you will need to select HDMI on the TV - NOTE: if this has a blue ray player and you are playing a blueray DVD, theres is copyright to protection to only allow one screen to be used, so you will need to toggle the laptop F key to just output from HDMI

I cannot get my lap top to show on the all with my projector


Laptop will often have a function key (usually F5) for cycling between built-in display, external monitor, and both. Try pressing F5. If that doesn't work and you have a "Fn" key (usually near the left Shift key) hold down Fn and press F5.
