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 Henley,

Try holding down the blue fn key, and press and release f5. This key combination changes video output modes on Acer laptops. Also, bring your video resolution down to it's minimal settings and try again. Reply if you still have any issues and I can help further.

Regards,

Joe

My screen on my laptop is broken. Can i plug a monitor into my laptop?


1) connect your external monitor to the laptop and then switch the monitor on
2) boot up the laptop
3) after it has successfully booted, you need to identify which function key toggles the external monitor on/off
4) you should be able to do this by holding down the Fn key and trying each of the F keys in turn, waiting a few seconds after pressing each one
5) begin by holding down "Fn" + "F3", "Fn" + "F4", "Fn" + "F5" etc.

If this doesn't work, it may be worth examining all the keys and look for a small monitor symbol on one of the keys. If you find this symbol, hold down the Fn key and then hit the corresponding key with the monitor symbol.

I have purchased an AOC 22" monitor to connect to my laptop >>>>>i have connected it but it does not display. What is wrong.


Depending on the laptop. Most have a key on the keyboard to toggle external display. Usually, you have to hold the function key [FN] then push the external display toggle.

Monitor does not come on


  • try to toggle FN key and F5 key..
  • try to plug in to an external monitor screen, if it works on external monitor, there is a problem on the laptop LCD screen
  • call your manufacturer for warranty or local service technician for LCD screen replacement

My laptop model is Aspire Acer 4720z. It doesn't have a sound unless you attach headphones or an external speaker


If you press the FN key + F8 key they are the ones that toggles the speakers on and off. There is nothing wrong with your speakers.

I have an acer 5335 aspire laptop and tried to connect it to a 127cm lg plasma via vga cable. I changed the resolution on the laptop and tried using Fn F5 key however no result.


Does ur video card support tv out?
If it does, u cannot use ur screen AND a tv at the same time.It's one or the other. Go to the display options and select the tv out option for ur vid card. Ur screen will go black and the tv will then have ur desktop.

Have tried connecting external monitor to aspire one,but get no signal .Works fine with the pc so is there something else I need to be doing


A few things to go through to attempt a signal--

1) when you connect the video cable are you hitting the Function (Fn) and F-key that corresponds to the video switch (Usually Fn key next to the Alt and Shift keys... and the F5 key at the top of your keyboard)

2) right-click anywhere on your desktop and select Properties. This should bring you to the display properties. go to the 'Settings' tab and see if it shows a second screen and attempt to activate it.

3) if that doesn't work your computer may require that you have the video cable plugged in before you turn it on. plug in the video cable and restart your computer.
