Hi,

Are you holding down Fn while you are trying the F5/F6 toggle?

Connecting laptop to Monitor


Go into Control Panel> and choose the display settings (depends on your operating system). In the display area look for a screen that allows you to change display settings. Once there, choose the "detect" button which will then allow you to use the multiple display option. Choose Duplicate to show same thing on both screens or Extend to have two independent screens.

I plugged in the VGA to netbook and to Monitor Acer AL1716. Nothing appears on the monitor


You need to toggle between the LCD display and the external montitor output.
It is usually on the keyboard as a function key.

Cannot get video to tv with vga to s-video adapter


try to use the vga output enable function key. it should be one of the "F-keys" (F5, F6...) hold the "Fn" key (generally in blue for the acer aspire 5520 series) and press a key that has a drawing resembling two monitors, but not the one that has a brightness drawing inside on of them, as it will turn off your main screen backlights. in the acer aspire 5520, it is the F5 key. look for a picture of this model's keyboard and you should see a similar key on your netbook as it is a manufacturer standard.

Acer Aspire 5100 monitor will not stay on


Hello,

I would advice you take it for repairs, because the best thing to do was system restore and since you've done it and the problem still persist, then I think it needs a professional care/touch.

Therefore I think you guessed right, it should be an hardware issue.

Best wishes.

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???


Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have a Acer Aspire 3000 notebook computer that I want to hook up to a 19" external monitor (Septre LCD Model DCL9C) I thoughout that after plugging it in to the rear monitor port adn power source...


According to the Aspire 3000 User Guide, you should be able to use Fn and F5 (not F6) to toggle the display selection. Try that first. If that doesn't resolve the problem...

Your laptop probably has the SiS Mirage 2 graphics processor. It's max resolution is 1024 x 768. The Sceptre DCL9C will likely default at 1280 x 1240. Try backing the resolution (in Control Panel) down to 1024 x 768 - for the external monitor. Also, hit the AUTO button on the monitor. It might reset itself to be compatible with the SiS video. Lastly, download the latest drivers for your OS and the SiS Mirage 2 video adapter.

I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.
Regards,

I believe you need to hold fn and press f5 to choose the target (lcd, monitor, lcd and monitor).
