Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

I just got an acer zg5 and the screen is blank

\015 I've tried to add a different monitor, and the only light that comes on is the green light on the power button.\015

Answers :

It sounds like your trying to use a full size monitor with your laptop. If that's the case you have to send the video to the cabled monitor by pressing the "fn" (function key) and then pressing the corresponding key that refers to a secondary video device (i.e. projector, monitor, etc.). Typically you press "fn" and f4 (should have monitor looking picture next to it), Some laptops are different, so look at your function (F1 - F12) keys to see which one is correct.
