Cannot run a monitor on Aser Aspire SA80

\015 G'day i have brought a friends pc home to repair, as it is riddled with issues, and the registry is corrupted...The pc was running on the owners lcd monitor, but now that i have brought it home and hooked it up to my lcd, 17'crt and 19' crt, it will not show anything on the screen! I also brought it 'here as im on B/Band and they are still on dial up, so as to speed up my repairs...I'm stuck, Elp? TIA\015

Answers :

Try pressing the F8 key when the computer starts to boot up. When you get to the safe mode screen, select Enable VGA mode. Evidently your friend's monitor can support resolutions and/or refresh rates that yours does not. Oh and one more thing, please rate this solution with a fixya rating. Thanks!

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip.
