Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 5500Z laptop. I also have a large LCD screen. When I plug it into the external jack I can get it to work in extended mode but that just extends the desktop over. I need to duplicate the desktop on it and I cannot figure out how to get that to work.

What to do when Acer desktop aspire 1461 turns on but screen is blank


Plug in an external monitor to the VGA port to the laptop. If that works - that's great news! The LCD screen is bad. Simply replace the LCD of the laptop's display.

If it doesn't work; you need to replace the VGA chip or the entire motherboard if it is embedded.

Hello, Computer = Acer Aspire 3680 Problem = Loaned to a friend in need, with computer working fine. When it came back, the screen resolution is so large, I can only see the left top quarter of the screen....


If using Vista, connect the external monitor try pressing Fn+ F5 or F6. If this doesn't work, try right-click desktop. select personalize, selct display setting at the bottom of list. in Display setting window click Identify Monitors on top right. if 2 pops up on external monitor, monitors are arranged properly. If external say 1 external is set as default and switch by clicking 1 and clicking pull down menu and select Generic PnP. then, set Resolution to high. Also make sure that Extend the desktop to this computer, isn't checked. Another test would be to check Exten Desktop to this Computer and select This is My Main Computer.
Otherwise you may want to try to Rollback the Driver for video card, an update from Microsoft my have been installed while your friend had it and these usually mess up video displays. You can also click Advanced Settings in Display Settings and click through the tabs that pop up to check operations and hardware acceleration settings.

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!!

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank


Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.

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 5500z driver bluetooth


First of all check if your Laptop has the bluetooth feature. If it has then the driver should have been automatically installed. There is a button in your laptop, make sure that the bluetooth is on.

Acer Aspire 5585 Laptop LCD Problem


Have you tried booting into "Enable VGA" mode via the "Windows Advance Option" screen? By press F8 before Windows XP loading screen comes up. In this mode the Video Card drivers are disabled. So if your screen appears normal and not white in this Mode then it is your video card drivers which are causing the issue.
