Acer aspire 3680

I reently purchased the acer aspire 3680 , very happy with the machine however my daughter decided it would be fun to throw something at the screen resulting in it cracking and the laptop being rendered useless :( I plugged in an external monitor to the vga but as soon as it gets past windows vista loading page it goes off and switches to the 14" broken screen , can u help please ?

Re: acer aspire 3680

You can switch it manually once Windows is loaded by holding the "FN" key (located near the lower left of the keyboard) and "F5" (this key varies depending on model). Some are F3, F5, etc.

Look at the "F" keys for a little icon of a monitor. This toggles the video output between the LCD and the external monitor.

0xd000001e and subsequent black screen

The easiest way is to hit F10 right after the Acer splash screen. This will take you into recovery mode on the laptop. Then just do the Reset to Factory Default. This will put everything back to the way it was when you purchase the laptop. It does this from the recovery partition.

Screen stays black when powered on

I replaced my screen on my 5570z, i purchased it off of ebay for 130.00 shipped, but make sure you check out there feedback, and make sure they have a ZERO dead pixel return policy. Some are sneaky and will not let you return it if you have less than 3 dead pixels.
