Resolution problems on notebook monitor

I have an old acer 5610z with vista home on it.I had it hooked up to an external projector now when I boot it there is a black area at the right hand side and a blurry 2inches on the bottom.The graphics properties state the resolution options as 800x600 and 1024x768 the widescreen resolution is supposed to be 1280x960 or something.I can't find a solution anywhere.

My Netbook Acer Aspire One will not hook up to the LCD projector.


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to anexternal monitor or data projector by two methods.1. Connect the externalmonitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and thelaptop. The video information will automatically switch to the externalmonitor.2. If you power up thelaptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor bypressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make andmodel laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCDscreen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fnkey plus one of the function key. Here is a list of keycombinations for some of the laptops :-IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7HP and Compaq = Fn + F4Toshiba = Fn + F5Dell = Fn + F8

Acer Aspire 5610Z. Upgraded to Win 7. Screen resolution changes


Hello,

Your laptop was not designed to run windows 7 or be compatible with it. It may run fine with windows 7 but issues might come up sooner or later like the one you're experiencing.

[EXPERIMENTAL]
Download both of these (as I don't know which one of thsese two your laptop needs). Keep mind that doing the following could render your system inoperable and use at own risk. When downloaded, extract ZIP , open desired folder and find SETUP or INSTALL program. Right click and choose properties, then navigate to compatibility mode, then select windows Vista from the menu. Then apply changes, ok and close window and attempt to start.

External monitor does not work


The screen resolution for the laptop may be set too high for the monitor. Try to change it to a lower resolution to test it out.

Connecting to projector


The function keys are most commonly F8 and F4, but you can look for the dual monitor icon in other Function Keys. If you are using Vista, you are offered a software switch when you connect an external monitor/projector. It is a matter of clicking on icons on your desktop.

Monitor Display on TV


Try the following:
Power up the projector first. With the laptop hooked up but not powered on once projector is warming up begin booting laptop. If there is still no display once its projector is fully warmed up and laptop booted you can try using the (fn) key with the laptop monitor switching function key usually F4 which switches the display monitor to show on external, external and laptop or just laptop. If this all fails try changing resolution of laptop to something that might be more projector friendly.
Let me know how you go.

Pictures are blurred........... HELP


Good morning!
It sounds like your LCD display is bad and needs replaced. You can verify this by hooking up an external monitor. If the display is OK on that, then you probably need to go shopping for a new (or gently used) LCD assembly.
