Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have an AKAI HDTV, a VGA cable, and have been connecting my laptop to the television successfully via the FnF5 toggle key. The last time I tried to connect, the icons did not appear when pressing the toggle key. There used to be three, now only the computer one appears so I can't select the television icon to switch my computer screen to the tv. What happened and how do I get them back?
Hi there Susie
Assuming your running XP....
Go to Start
go to control panel
there should be two screens visible
click on screen 2 and then IDENTIFY
the video card should then put a Number 1 or 2 on the screen if its connected and turned on,
If there is only one screen visible in the display SETTINGS
then you will have to uninstall the device and reinstall it.
How to Uninstall....
Go to start
Right click on My Compter,
Right click on Display adapters
Reboot to save settings when done and restart
On start up the Operating System should auto recognise the device and reinstall it,
It will tell you when its installed and ready for use ,
give you a device install failure message
Once this is done the device should be up and laughing again.
As far as how did it happen???
Did you do any device updates or software installs lately?
Sometimes default settings of different softwares conflict with each other and the only way to sort them out is turn them off and start again.
I hope this helps,If you need any more help , please just ask
