Question about InFocus PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have an Acer laptop approx. 2 years old. I am trying to show a folder from My Pictures on a InFocus in 20 series. Projector is up and on computer source. When I start up the computer, the projector displays the Windows screen, then stops showing what is on the computer monitor. I have pressed Fn and F5 with the monitor symbol on it, but nothing works. All I have is a blue screen with a searching message in lower left corner.

You need to enable the 2nd video output in the video card settings!

right click on desktop select properties and select the settings tab

Select the monitor 2, click on extend my desktop to this monitor.

Then you can drag windows either out from your main monitor, to up, down, or the sides debends on where you set the 2nd display, you can also change the position of the 2nd screen by draging it around in the middle.

By preforming the following steps, you may loose some documents, pictures, music, etc. Start your computer in safe mode. Do this by restarting your computer and pressing F8 once every 3 seconds until you see safe mode as an option. Select that, once you get logged in, open up my computer and navigate to:
If you have Windows XP follow these steps: Double click the C: drive Double click documents and settings Right click on the folder of your username and click rename and ADD a .old to the end of the folder hit enter, and restart your computer.
Now when you go to log in it will re-build your profile

If you have Windows Vista, or Windows 7 follow these steps: Double click the C: drive Double click the Users folder Right click on the folder of your username and click rename and ADD a .old to the end of the folder hit enter, and restart your computer.
Now when you go to log in it will re-build your profile

I do not know how to plug in the TV antenna for Acer AL1916W


your tv has inputs for RGA plugs please see the bellow pictures.

http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Projector-Cable-HD15-M-RCA-M/dp/B002OF1ES6

this is only a lcd computer monitor. not a tv set. so the antenna tuner is found built into the laptop or video card of your computer. the plug type is pictured above in the link.

ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

I have an old Acer ferrari 3000 series laptop. My 3 yr old nephew was playing with it now everytime i start up it ask for a hard drive password. Dont have a clue what it could be. Also when i press F2 to...


if u don't know the password for the hard drive, u won;t be able to use it !!! U can try to mount that drive to another laptop/computer and than force it to lose the password encryption (u'll need special software and advanced knoledge...). The other option is to send it to the producer (acer) and let them do the job.(expensive !!!)
As for the password that is requested when u press F2, is the BIOS password, and u can get ride of it easily by reseting the BIOS.(u should find info for this in the computers manual)(note: this involves opening the computer case ...)

And ofecourse there is the option where u can try all posible combinations for the password .. it shold take just 2000 years ... lol

I cannot get my computer and Infocus LP10 to communicate. This is a new problem. In the past, I hooked everything up and when I powered up the camera and then powered up my laptop, all was well with my...


if you are trying to hook the laptop to the proyector, did you try right clicking on the desktop to view the properties of the screen?
you have to right click at the desktop, then go to properties, then go to the tab of configuration then click on the second screen that will apear, and when it greys out, you there is an option you have to click below that says "extend windows desktop to this monitor", of course, the proyector has to be already conected, when you already clicked that, touch the sync button of the proyuector and it should be working.. otherwise, at the windows of configuraton you have to click on advanced (wich is a button almost at the bottom of the window) and then a window will emerge and (on my version) there is a tab that its called like my video card of the laptop (in your laptop it should be called like your video card), and there must be an option (after you plugged the proyector) of sending the signal like something specific, like a signal for tv, or proyector,or monitor.. .i think it varies depending on the model of the video card.
well.. i think thats all about it.. wish you good luck in your lecture..
also.. check the cables!.. if they are old they could be broken at the begening of the conection... (did i explain that right?)
