    How do I download the right driver for it...this function was working a couple of days ago and now when I push on the Fn key and press F5 it doesn't show the screen where I can select the screen type I want to switch to on the larger screen...why is this happening now when it was working fine a couple of days ago???

  • juliesabuda Oct 07, 2010

    Download the right driver??? How? I didn't have to do this before. I only needed to press the Fn with F5 key to select the screen type to be displayed on my big flat screen...but this now doesn't work...can u tell me if there is another solution to this without having to download the right driver since it was working fine before and for some reason it doesn't work now.

Needs to be calibrated for that screen though your display settings . I have a 32 inch screen and I had to reset size etc. to get it full.

    First of all is the screen hook to were you monitor is and is there any picture at all. If not you will need to down load the right drivers for it.

    go in to system restore go back to day it worked restore pc. If that does not fix it Take it to a pc shop. or forget about the larger screen. For me to fix the problem further I need to be on your pc. It is easy to fix but you have to know how to re configure i. and if you do it wrong pc will crash.t

My acer aspire 9810 video died, can I use the vga port? so far no video out


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

How do I connect my acer aspire 5050 to TV?


Since the Acer Aspire One D250 only has VGA output for its video, you will need a VGA cable to connect between the D250 and a TV that accepts VGA input as a video source. The sound is separate. A mini-stereo jack on an audio cable with two RCA phono plugs on the other end would be used to connect the D250 audio output (usually used for headphones) to the left and right audio inputs on the TV. You may need to use the TV setup screens to select the proper video and audio sources. With the TV on and proper video source selected, you now should be able to press Fn and F5 to get a menu in the middle of the D250's screen that allows you to select the video destination by holding down Fn key and pressing the F5 key repeatedly. The single large screen icon (3rd one from the left) is the one to select video output to VGA port only which would send it to your TV. The sound on the D250 does not need to be selected but you may wish to adjust its level and/or properties to be more suitable for TV.

I have an Acer Aspire 7520 and I want to connect it to my TV (Philips 42inchHD) My problem is there is no HMDI port on the laptop and when I connect through VGA nothing happens just a blank screen, please...


Once connected you need to switch screens using your laptop keyboard.

Press and keep press the Fn key, probably to the left of the space bar.

Then look along your number keys, you should see a second icon, same colour as your Fn key, which looks like a screen, press that key also.

This is probably a toggle switch, so you'll have to repeat to switch back to you laptop.

Acer aspire no screen


Is it that way all the time even after shutting off your computer entirely and turning it back on? Or is it like that after a while of inactivity? If it is like that all the time then try pressing fn and the f key at the top that switches from monitor to lcd. You must hold the fn key while pressing the f key to switch from the monitor to lcd key.

How to connect acer aspire mini laptop to digital lcd tv?


You get the audio from PC: you must use a separate audio cable to your TV audio input.
Configure your PC Display properties to a lower resolution until you reach a format your tv can display.
If you use a flat digital screen check the manual to know the resolution to be used with VGA input.
Use Dual screen option or swittch main screen/external/both using FN key + blue key showing screen on your keyboard. (F4 or F7? check manual.)
