You need to enable the 2nd screen from bios setup or the press the screen button combination witch is FN (function) and one of the F1-12 keys, It varies between laptops. Press the one with VGA or a small picture of a screen on it.

Acer z3751 allinone has power but a black screen on startup. the fan is running and the monitor has power lights but i am getting a black screen and can not fix, could you advice me?


Acer z3751 is just like it's Acer Laptops. If it is still in warranty, just send it to the nearest service center and claim warranty. It may be a vga connection problem.

My acer verion L410 won't start on screen and fans are running high when switched on it has windows Xp


On Acer machines it is quite possible that it will need a new cmos battery. This is a small battery that keeps the date and time settings and also various settings. This doesn't normally stop a computer from booting but acres it does. It is fairly easy to swap a battery just take the top of the computer and you should see the battery on the main board level. You will need to replace the battery with a 2032 cell battery. You can get these at most shops they are the same as car alarm batteries and some camera batteries. Unplug the power first before you take the top off. They aren't expensive so worth a go . It could be something else such as the power or the motherboard or even a usb device also stopping it but because it's windows xphone it will be due for a bartery anyway.

My Alienware M11X R2's screen broke completely off. I thought I could just hook up an HDMI cable and use the base with a monitor but it keeps beeping... and the video wont show up on the monitor.


Do you mean that the hinges broke and the screen is no longer attached to the laptop. I googled ' Alienware M11X R2 screen' and one of the first results is a story from PC World which contains:


"Dell will repair broken hinges on any Alienware M11x system for any R1 or R2 customer worldwide regardless of warranty status," wrote Dell's John Blain, in a blog entry on the company's website.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

When I turn on my Acer AS5633/5710-102, the screen is blank but the laptops still running, and I've followed the instructions in the booklets but none of them seemed to work. HELP!! :)


If U have another monitor, plug it into the rear external monitor connection. There is a function key that will switch video over to the external monitor if it does not come up automaticly. Please reply as to the results. What did U do prior to loosing Ur video?
