    Have acer Aspire 3000, had deep freeze installed with no
    pass word. Someone type a pass word in
    the blank unknown to me. I got a fix
    from the deep Freeze folk but, you have boot from the CD drive to get bois to
    active the fix Aspire goes directly in Window Xp, will not let you get there.

    Do you have a fix for this problem?

    You may be using screen two on both monitors. Is the screen totally blank, or just no desktop icons? Do you have a mouse cursor?

    What do you want to do, make both monitors identical or have monitor two expand the desktop? In the advanced video properties, there is a checkbox for that.

    I cant seem to get past that auto repair screen on my Acer. Worst yet, I cant go into bios to change the boot settings to boot into an external media so I can repair it. It's just stuck at this silly auto repair loop. Whatever key combination I use it just doesnt want to either start the bios settings or start the safe mode screen. Whenever I do a hard reset(hold the power button until it stops and then start it again) it never shows me any boot screen it just goes into that loop immediately. I can fix the problem as long as I boot into BIOS but as I said it immediately goes into that loop after a hard reset. Any ideas on how to get to the boot menu ?

Have you tried to disconnect the external monitor and just booting to the laptop? If this works, then use the "e" key next to the power button to add the second monitor.

Acer Aspire One has a blank screen, but is logging on and able to function. Can click and hear sounds when I do and when it starts up, as if it were running normally, but the screen is blank so I can't...

Connect an external monitor and use the computer to check the screen settings. If changing the settings doesn't fix the problem, the screen or the lamp driver needs to be replaced. I have seen many Aspire One with screen problems, appears to be quite common.

Good luck

Screen blank but when toggled you can see output on external monitor

sounds like the internal video card has a direct feed problem, it plays on external. while screen is hooked to external check control panel for main screen dianostics. You have to live with it untill it fails altogether. Internal video is starting to fail. time for new laptop

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank

Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.

What new softwares or updates have you just done on the Aspire 3000,You need SP 2 Updates to function properly...

Change cmos back to default and then reboot
don't touch cmos anymore

after start up.
go to desk top
right click on the desk top
display properties opens on themes
select settings
Now with Both screens attached and powered up
box 1 displayed will allow you to adjust the properties here.
Adjust to the smallest settings first should be 800x600
and this will allow you to independantly set sizes of image for each screen.At 800x600 both screens will be identical in size in the menu box.

Screen Number # 1

click Idendify,& number 1 should appear on your screen
click advanced
select compatibilty click apply without restart and OK

Screen Number # 2

DO the same process as Screen Number # 1
image size here needs to be 800x600 too

If your video does not run it will be the screen settings I have just talked about unless you have other softwares as a default.
Remove the other softwares and try again.

You should be able to save the settings for a dual output or set output to individually operate either or.....

I hope this helps your situation,

Please rate me or if you need more help just ask thanks
