SOURCE: Get my screen back after connecting a projector

Fn + F5 toggles the display output.....but when you run a projector or other device, the backlight shuts off and to turn it back on, the combination is Fn + F6.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9' Won't Boot Up !!!

The Acer Aspire One has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, which can boot into a minimal BIOS environment via a special boot block to re-flash the BIOS, even if the system does not pass POST and does otherwise not boot anymore. This is also known as crisis disk mode.

First format an USB flash drive with FAT. It does not need to be bootable.

Download the latest BIOS, and extract all files from the zip file. Put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file with FD suffix in the root directory of the flash drive. The files must not be in a folder. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD before proceeding. It only works with this exact filename.

Turn the AA1 off, with the flash drive still connected, and make sure both battery and AC adapter are also connected.

Press Fn and Esc simultaneously, keep them pressed and press the power button. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds. The power button starts blinking at this point. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate flashing the BIOS. After a while the button stops blinking, and the AA1 reboots shortly after. Wait patiently.

If it doesn't reboot by itself, but keeps blinking, wait at least a few minutes before turning it off, and try again.

SOURCE: I have an Acer One

The Acer One netbook has a mini-VGA port on its left side. Page 10 of Acer's QuickGuide shows the port as item 3 External display (VGA) port. But unfortunately, the description shown for it is incorrect.
From your description, your projector's lead likely has a mini-VGA connector on the end as pictured. The connector can simply be plugged into the mini-VGA port but there are no holes beside the port for screws so it would just be a friction fit which should be sufficiently secure for most puposes. The connector and port are mini-DB 15 male and female respectively and can only fit one-way. The port has the wide side of the D on top so you would have to turn the pictured connector over to be able to plug it into the port. Windows XP should be able to detect the projector via plug-and-play installing any display drivers if required. Page 8 of Acer's UserGuide describes Hotkey + Display toggle which switches display output between the display screen, external monitor (if connected) and both. Pressing + with the projector plugged in will bring up a window in the middle of the screen allowing the selection of internal display, external display, both, or a 800x600 VGA projector. If the display is on the projector, unplugging the cable should automatically revert display back to the internal screen. For VGA see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector splines.jpg

Extend screen to tv while keeping desktop on computer


Depending on the brand, you should hit function, then F7.
Then you can cycle through the modes. Normal (just the laptop screen) , TV (or video) out, and last mode is screen AND TV out.
I used to set up laptops for presentations, and I would hook up a video projector to the VGA out, then the presenter could look at his screen and use the mouse while folks followed him on the big screen behind him.

What version of windows are you running? If you hit the Windows Key (typically between the ctrl and alt keys) + P you can cycle through the display modes. You may have it set to computer only, however Win Key + P will change the mode. Try setting ti to Duplicate, Extend, or Projector only.

My Acer AO531h have a blackscreen probleme. If I turn my netbook on, but the screen stay's black. Please I need help.


According to me the problem is that perhaps you clicked on "projector only".This option is used when you have connected a projector to your laptop and then you will have several options.Perhaps you have chosen projector only. This mode will turn the screen off. So to solve this problem, turn on your laptop/netbook, then connect another screen(the screen of another pc) to your laptop via the vga cable or other way. Turn the screen of the pc on. If you see that the screen is good(that is it is showing you the windows, etc), press start/windows button and button ' P ' on your netbook keyboard. Then choose computer only.If not solved, let me know on arjunscorpion@rocketmail.com . Be sure to include the problem in the email. Dont forget to rate my answer.

Your TV must have a VGA in port for your to be able to hook your computer to your TV. All you need is a regular VGA cord.

Dell 2200mp searching for signal


One problem may be that you must tell the PC to send the signal to the external monitor. Usually, if you hold down the function button and hit the F5 key you will see several options on the screen. (Other laptops use different function keys. Look for the one that shows two tv screens. You want the option which shows the laptop and the external monitor.) To advance between options, you hit the F5 button again and it moves over to the next option.

My computer needs me to lower the resolution on the laptop in order to send the signal to the projector. If you also need to do that, you can do it in Control Panel, Display, and Settings, and lower the resolution on screen number 1.

Doing both of these things should work.

Also, confirm that it is finding signals by hooking it to a DVD or video and see if it finds the signal through one of the other ports.
