Assuming you are connecting the mointor to DVI or VGA cable. You can connect the monitor through windows. In vista, right click, personalize, display settings, You should see a greyed out monitor. Click extened the desktop onto this monitor, It should automaticaly detect itself.
In xp its similar. Right click on desktop, go to properties. You should see a screen pop up. Go to the last tab. it should be monitor. Click on teh greyed out area and click Extend the display to this monitor.

My samsung q320 will not detect my projector


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
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

Model acer travelmate 4000 nodisplay on lcd and external monitor


You say the trouble is with the keyboard. Can you attach an external keyboard via USB and see if you can push Fn key with F5 (I think it is the F5 key - try Fn with others - keep Fn pressed and repeatedly press the F5 or F6 etc.) several times to see if the screen toggles between LCD and external monitor. For this to work you will have to restart the computer after attaching the external keyboard. Press the start button until the computer goes off, and press again to restart.

Itf you ascertain that the trouble is with the 99.N7082.01D, make sure to try to fit it in correctly, or perhaps the Fn key has some dust or liquid in it so it does not function. Then you have to try to clean it from the inside after you disassemble.

When conneting Acer Aspire 5810TG to a Samsung LCD LE32M6. The Samsung LCD shows 'no signal'.


On most laptops, you need to turn on the external monitor connector from a function key on the keyboard. It doesn't automatically sense you've hooked up the other monitor. On your model, hold down the Fn key and press F5 to switch the external connector on. Here's the page from the user guide with the key combinations you might find helpful:

Connecting laptop to Monitor


Go into Control Panel> and choose the display settings (depends on your operating system). In the display area look for a screen that allows you to change display settings. Once there, choose the "detect" button which will then allow you to use the multiple display option. Choose Duplicate to show same thing on both screens or Extend to have two independent screens.

Connecting my laptop to my samsung lcd tv.


If you know how to let it work with an LCD or DLP projector then all you have to do is set the selector of the your LCD TV to the RGB or computer input. If not, then you have to hit the function key in order to activate the secondary port for the external display of your laptop.
