Exactly whst is howing, just an empty windows screen? Reboot your pc and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key. This will take you to a boot option list. Select last known good configuration. See what happens. If that doesn't work. reboot again and hit the F8 key again, this time choosing safe mode. If it boots into safe mode do a system restore. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Look at the dates and see if something was installed on a date a day or two ago. Pick a date before that. If nothing was, pick a date about two days ago when everything was running fine. The system will then reboot itself and tell you if it was successful. If it is running ok do a complete virus scan and anti-spyware check. If you need these programs I can tell you where to get good ones for free. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate yet. Just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. If you need those programs just add a comment also. Thanks.

How do you get laptop screen to show on the tv by a hdmi cord


Connect the HDMI cord to both. Switch to the HDMI input on the TV. Boot the laptop. If you're using Windows and the TV doesn't show the laptop's screen, right click anywhere on the desktop that doesn't have an icon, then select properties. In the tab to the right of the resulting window, you should be able to enable screen mirroring, expansion, or switching.

Some laptops also have a function key set that you press to switch monitor outputs. Look for keys with secondary, alternate color commands on them. It will normally take a set of key presses.

I want to make my external display the main screen as my laptop screen is broken, I can't work it out on the display settings with the two monitors, am confused !


Most laptops will show the desktop on one or both screens You can use function keys with common combination such as Fn + F5, Fn + F3, Fn + F8 and Fn + F9 to toggle between the two screens. Refer to the laptop's user manual for the right key combination to toggle between the displays. Alternatively, with many laptops you can also switch to the extended desktop mode. This means your desktop screen will be stretched across both the monitors. Refer to your user manual to switch to this mode.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe

My laptop wont show any icons on the desktop and it wont do anything but show my background and mouse.


Hello, If your laptop shows something on your desktop before and suddenly it just stop showing things then right click on your desktop,under VIEW, click on SHOW DESKTOP ICON. If this does not work then your laptop has been infected with Virus.You need to get a good anti-virus to remove the virus or format your system. Regards

My computer switches on but the screen is almost blank. You can see the acer logo and the windows logo show up on it when you switch it on but just barely. The screen is very dark.


Unfortunately I have some bad news. This means your 'backlight' on your LCD panel is burnt out. This can be fixed, but often it isn't worth the work. If you still want to use this laptop, you can hook up an Desktop LCD Monitor to the laptop and use it like a desktop computer, with a USB Keyboard and mouse, but sadly the LCD backlight is fried. I've lost 2 laptops to this.
