Broke screen acer laptop how do I display it on another monitor

I just dropped my acer aspire laptop and most of the screen is not visible and it has lines running through it. I know I broke the LCD screen. If I plug an external monitor into it, how do I get it to display without being able to see the original screen?

Holding down the Fn key and pressing the F5 key will toggle through all the video presets. That includes just the internal monitor, the external monitor and both monitors.

If you dropped your laptop and the screen got broken, there is no way to fix it via any software change. But you have two options:

  1. Connect an external monitor via VGA port, more information here
  2. Get fixed it by Acer service

Acer Aspire One notebook model zG5, i hear the hard drive come on, but screen is blank and the keyboard does not respond.


Hello,

connect the laptop to an external monitor, turn it on see if the monitor will display.

If the monitor displays, then it means your screen inverter or screen bulb is the cause of the laptop screen being blank.

Also if the monitor does not display anything, the maybe the graphic card is the cause of the problem.

This would involve you taking the laptop to a repairer

Take care.

My daughter just dropped her acer aspire netbook. Only half of the screen is visible the other half is white and black with a line down the middle


Hi,

Dropping the netbook will have probably broken the LCD screen.

There is no other way to repair the problem without replacing the screen itself. You can however use a external monitor and use the keyboard to toggle between the two screens.

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear but unfortunately LCD screens are fragile so a good knock can crack them causing only one half or the part or the screen which is not broken to show. The backlight itself sounds like its working as there is still light showing behind the cracks.


Regards.

Aspire Notebook 5735-4774 won't display on external CRT monitor


If the video chip on the Aspire motherboard is OK then the image on the external monitor would be OK. If not then the video/motherboard is faulty.
To gain access to data on the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. The computer will see this as an external hard drive.
Alternately -
You can put the hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Lcd screen broke external monitor wont work


Sounds like you resolution is too high or vista doesn't recognise your driver.

Try starting in Safe Mode by powering up your PC and tapping the F8 key until you see a menu. Select Safe Mode from the menu. Once in safe mode change the resolution to 800x600 then restart in normal mode.

If that doesn't work then download and install the correct drivers for your display card here;

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_3680/

Once downloaded, you may need to install it in safe made once again.

Thanks

Acer aspire 5050 laptop color lines on screen


you can try pulling the screen apart and re-seating the ribbon cable, but the lcd might be broken, or one of the controller lcd chips might either be cracked or broken. Trying to reseat the lcd ribbon cable might help, but if there is a visible crack in the screen- you will need a new screen.
