Can you see a dim image at all? If you can see the image slightly probably a bad inverter board.

Try to use and external monitor to see if you get an image. If no go probably bad screen or motherboard. Would have to take it somewhere to be diagnosed by a technician.

Hope this helps!

Hi, I have a problem with Aspire 5570z The problem with 5570z is this: my Screen is blank with power and sound is on.


Unless the backlight has gone bad, try Fn+F5 and Fn+F6 keys to see if your display returns. Fn+F5 toggles to an external screen; Fn+F6 toggles the backlight on and off.

Acer laptop screen is dark an will not brighton l


I would like you to try 2 things:

1. Press and hold the blue Fn key then press the right arrow key a few times and see if it gets brighter. If that doesn't work try #2

2. Press and hold the blue FN key then press F5 or F6 not sure which one changes your screen. If it seems to mess something up it's ok. Just press the same combo that messed it up once or twice and it will go back to normal.

Please comment and let me know if it worked! :)

Hi, Could you please post the Model Number of the computer.Are you trying to connect using a VGA cable or a HDMI ?Fn+F5 key combinations are used to toggle the display between the laptop and the External Monitor.Try these steps
1.Remove all cables,Turn OFF computer and Monitor
2.Start the computer and wait till it boots to windows nrmally.
3.Start the Monitor,then plug the cables between laptop and Monitor.
4.Check with Fn+F5 to toggle display

I have an Acer Aspire netbook that I want to hook to a projector. I finally got the right cord to hook it up, but it will not display on the projector screen.


One of the F keys will toggle between the Laptop Screen and the VGA output - look at the F keys and see if one has a picture of a screen often F4 / F5 - needs to be used with the FN key
FN key+ F4 Key (Or which ever key has the symbol on)
It will toggle between <laptop screen only><laptop screen and VGA output><VGA output only> Not necessarily in that order

No LCD connectivity


Hello, I am using a Viewsonic lcd projector with my new Acer Aspire One. I did not have connectivity off the bat. Here's what I did: 1. Downloaded driver (unsigned, not the signed version worked - ie not os-specific) for the lcd projector to the Acer. Restart Acer. 2. With lcd projector connected to Acer, toggle function key & F5. But then, continue holding down the function key. A screen pops up with icons for laptop, laptop/monitor, dual monitor, and lcd projector. You continue to hold down the function key and then press the F5 key to move to the desired device. I had to repeat the same process to restore my Acer screen to the original proportion when not using lcd projector. I'm not sure if both steps 1 and 2 are necessary, but I did it simultaneously, so I'm not sure of the origin of success.

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???


Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
