If you are having trouble with your projector not working alot of the issues are related to the resolution of the computers. Most projectors only support standard resolutions like 800x600 and 1024x768. Alot of the netbooks do not use these resolutions. The links below will help you check and/or change the resolution on the netbook to one that the projector support.

If you still have trouble let me know the make and model of your projector so I can look up info on it.

Im holding the Fn and f5 key to brighten my screen but its not working


The icon colours should match ...usually blue and you have to tap the brightness up button repeatedly as it is incremental.point worth noting.if the power supply is not connected the battery save option can disable the brightness of screen to stretch out the life of battery between charges.

You state to hold the fn, and hit the power button.....OK, whats the ( fn ) key ?


The Fn key is a key found usually on the keyboards of portable computers (laptops, netbooks etc) and sometimes on desktop type keyboards.

It is a key usually marked with a blue coloured "Fn" and is located somewhere on the bottom left row of keys.

The Fn key is used in combination with other keys that have (usually) blue letters or icons on them to activate the special functions (Fn) on these keys.

For example, on the laptop I'm writing this on; If I press F5 the computer would perform the action my software has normally assigned to F5. If however I press the Fn button and F5, the computers internal function for decreasing screen brightness is invoked.

Different computer makes have different assignment to their keyboard Fn so you can't generally say press Fn+F5 to decrease screen brightness, it might be assigned to something else, volume or sleep-mode or even nothing. The "blue" text or icon will give an indication of what it will do.

Hope this helps explain the Fn key ;)

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.

I tried to connect my acer one to a TV conversion device. all I get is my desk top picture, no icons or anything else. how do I get it to work?


Sounds like the acer is in dual view which means it has extended the desktop across both screens...if you move the cursor to the right, it would probably appear on the external monitor. Try holding down the "Fn" key and tap the F5 key. This should toggle the Acer One through it's video settings. Tap slowly, giving the netbook time to switch video outputs, you should see eventually the desktop with icons appear on the external monitor. You may have to change the resolution, but it should work regardless.

Trying to connect hp pavilion laptop to tv with an s video cord but cannot get a visual on the tv


Hello,
When the hardware connection is made: S video in laptop port and S-video in TV there remain two things to do.
1. On the computer, extend your desktop to show on the TV. On my laptop I press Fn-F5, and an OSD appears. I can choose the output to the TV and the internal LCD by holding the Fn key while pressing the F5 key. Each time I press the F5 key the focus moves to another icon (TV only, Monitor only, LCD and monitor, etc.)
Once you know how to externd the display or divert it to the external screen, you can take care of the TV.
On the TV remote (the easiest way), there must be a key labeled AV, AUX, or some such thing. Once you press it, and OSD appears on the TV screen giving you several input options :TV, AV, S-Video, PC. Select S-Video. It will tell you no signal if you have not yet diverted screen output of laptop to it.
Use the Fn-Fx key to send the signal to the TV.
This may not be the way to configure the connection for your laptop-TV combination, but I am venturing it anyway in the hope that it will help you solve the problem.

However there are no better sources of information than your laptop manual, and the TV user guide.

Can't get my notebook screan to show


hello,
Indentify the video output options of the computer and the input options of the projector. Most common are VGA and S-Video. use the appropriate cable to connect the two. Your projector may be able to probe its ports to see what signal it is getting.
On your computer. After you make the hardware connection and your projector is set to receive on the correct port, extend your desktop to show on a TV if S-Video, or on a monitor if VGA. To have the screen of your computer to appear on the external screen, use the FN-Fx key combinations. Examine the laptop`s function keys and look for some icon that shows a computer and a screen. Most probably it is the F5 key.
Assuming F5 to be the right key, you press Fn-F5 and an OSD will appear on your computer. You scroll from an icon to the other by pressing F5 while still pressing down the Fn key.

If that does not work, I suggest you check your computer s manual for the right key combinations.
Hope it helps.

You should be ably to toggle the output between the LCD and the output jack by pressing the FN and F5 keys.

**note** check your F keys for a picture of a little monitor, as F5 may not be the correct one for your model.**
