    The F5 key brings up 3 boxes. The middle box is the box I need to choose. I click on it but it doesn't seem to take. Any idea's? The Envision screen that is attached to my Acer laptop does boot up but it than shows no signal.

Hi psans,

Sorry it took sometime, out fishing and with the indulgence of skotkolr...

Re you concern on your laptop display -
Based on your brief description/post, I am assuming that you have a laptop (of unknown make & model) and you have connected an external monitor (again of unknown make & model) but there is no display on the external monitor. You have tried lowering the screen resolution and still a no go.

A couple of ideas:
1. if the external monitor is connected to the laptop using the yellow RCA connector, then you would have to reboot with the external monitor already powered on and connected prior to restarting your laptop. Additionally, if the external monitor is a standard TV you may have to lower down the PC's resolution really all the way down as well as lower the Screen Refresh Rate;
2. it may be necessary to enable external monitor in your laptop's "Display Properties";
3. to cycle through the different display options, you need to press Fn + F? key not 5. The F? depends on what PC you have. it normally is an F key with monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Acer Aspire 5515 Service Manual ( Free)

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go down to the second Aspire heading.
The one that starts with Aspire 1200.
Drop down to line 6, then go across to the right, and click on 5515.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
I would suggest upgrading to Adobe Reader 9 (9.3.4.) though, if this isn't the version on the computer.

After you click you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.
The file is downloading in the background.
Usually it takes a few seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
Suggest you let the file fully download before looking through it.

This is a SERVICE MANUAL, not a User Manual. Much more detailed, including disassembly procedures.

I used The FN and F5 key and it worked


Go to the point where you have a stable picture even if it is huge. Right click on an empty space on the desktop and scroll down to properties. Click on settings and increase the resolution a little at a time hitting apply and checking the display as you go. Keep hitting ok to the display settings if you like them. Find the resolution and display size that suites you.

Transfer picture from laptop to my tv


You need to click the dropdown box and select the 2nd option. It should say "(Default Monitor)" in the beginning of it. Hit "Apply" and then "Ok". After that, the 'Fn+F5' combo should work. It should cycle through A) Laptop and TV, B) Just TV and C) Just Laptop.
Hope that helps.

Evo N600C screen smaller than whole monitor screen


This is not a resolution problem.

Instead press Fn - T at the same time. This toggles between the normal mode and the 'minimized' mode. I am not sure why you ever want this smaller mode though. My wife accidently did the same thing you did. It took a little while to figure it out since it also affected the screen size even before Windows 'kicked in'.
