Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook ?

As a temporary fix for my Acer 4000 travelmate cracked screen I have connected a 15 pin cable from the back of my laptop to my sony Bravia TV. When I switch the TV to the PC extenal input page the words 'no sync' appear on the TV screen. I understand there is a way of sychronising the laptop with the television through windows but cannot see anything at all on the cracked screen. Is there a way of doing this using the keyboard alone?


Answers :

Usually its a combination of the Fn key and another key...it should have a picture of a screen on the key in the same color as the Fn key....usually it's F4.

Alienware D900T laptop will not boot. I've tried many different ways to get it going. So far, I've gone one step more than it used to, it used to sit with a black screen.
