Acer Aspire One AOD257 :: How To Use External Projector With Netbook

Jan 12, 2015

I can't get the display configured to support using my TV as an external monitor. 
 
There is an option under Control Panel -> Appearance to "Connect to a Projector".  That brings up a display "Computer Only", "Duplicate" or "Projector Only".  If I select Duplicate I see "1|2 Multiple Monitors" in my Screen Resolution selection.  But if I hit Identify it shows "1|2" both on my netbook LCD display.
 
After playing with this for a while I now can't even get the built-in display to work when I attache the VGA cable to my TV.  That causes the LCD display to go black.  I've played with toggling the display using the F5 key (also tried 6, though the icon on the F5 key seems to be the one I want).  That doesn't work.
 
There's a different way to display the Display Devices settings - by right-clicking on the desktop area and selecting Graphics Properties.  That brings up a different window which shows Operating Mode and Display Selection.  I've been able to get that to indicate a Multiple Monitor choice under Operating Mode and appear to allow me to choose what to display in the "Primary Device" and the "Secondary Device", but the pull-down choices for both of these only show Notebook.

HP EliteBook 8460p Display :: External Monitor / Projector Does Not Work

Jan 13, 2012

We have several 8460p with the same issue. They work fine until you try to connect an external monitor/TV/projector and then the trouble begins.
 
When using Fn+F4 to establish a dual screen output the external monitor and the built in screen switches between the two as if the PC can not determine the screen to use. On rare occasions it works but it is not reliable. I´ve first encountered this on a fair and when I tried it before the session it worked well. During the session it just started this behaviour. I took it out and replaced the graphic drivers, the BIOS and made sure the resolution was not the issue. It worked well and I returned it to the lecturing room and it started again.
 
I started to believe the projector was the bad part here so I did not try to use the PC again on that fair but no other computer showed any sign of trouble.
 
Since then, this was early this spring, I´ve seen and experienced the same problem with several computers of the same type and with different monitor and they all behave the same way.
 
I have spent some time now and searched the web but nothing I´ve found does explain anything around this and so far no driver update and no other update (including a full installation) has solved this.
 
The computer are the HP Elitebook 8460p with AMD-graphics.
 
There are not any other indication of that something is wrong in logs or anything.

Acer Aspire One ZG8 :: Netbook Won't Load XP

Dec 14, 2014

5 years ago I purchased an Acer One ZG8 Netbook.  I have gotten alot of use although now I am facing a crash with Windows XP not loading.  I wanted to do a factory reset and see if there is any hope to keep this older Acer as a back up netbook.  After powering up the Acer One,,,Windows XP will not load.  I am faced with a black screen offering options:

1.Safe Mode
2. Safe Mode with Networking
3. Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Or Last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked). Lastly, Start Windows Normally

Finally, it prompts me to use the down arrow keys to choose with a 30 second countdown ticker.

I HAVE tried all the options for weeks and weeks.  Just as Window XP loads a blue screen with word flash so quickly I can not possibly read it.  I am very very close to letting this older version Acer meet its maker --- although through my ignorance I have realized just maybe I could do some sort of factory reset.

Acer Aspire One AOA110 :: Cannot Charge New Battery In Netbook

Nov 14, 2014

I bought a new battery for my Aspire-One (AOA110) netbook.  I flashed the BIOS according to instructions and, after waiting for a day while the netbook was telling me that the battery was being charged, the netbook told me that the battery was 100% charged.  I disconnected the charging cable and, immediately, the netbook told me that I had to reconnect it because the netbook was out of power.  The battery charge had immediately dropped from 100% to 0%!

I have repeated the same operation several times, with identical results. Is the new battery defective?  Or should I do something else?

Acer Aspire One AO725 :: Battery Not Charging On Netbook?

Oct 25, 2014

I already tried the general fix for this offered by a few folks on Youtube and other sites, where you remove the battery and then uninstall the battery/power drivers in Device Manager.  Then turn off, put the battery back in and start up again, letting the drivers re-install afresh.  But this did not solve the problem for me.
 
Acer forums do not list this battery charging issue for the AO725 model, but they do mention it for a couple of other models of netbooks, saying that the battery will not charge once it reaches a state of complete depletion.  They instruct to update the BIOS.

Acer :: No Blu-ray From 6935g To Projector

Dec 30, 2008

My main aim is to playback Blu-ray ripped movies from 6935g and output to projector via hdmi.

When projector is connected to 6935g, yeah, it detected the projector and the desktop appears on the projector screen, that's the easy part 6935g downsized to 1280x720p automatically, guess that is because my pj only supports 720p and not 1080p, need to start save again for a 1080p pj,

Now the big question
Powerdvd playback the movie on the 6935g screen but the powerdvd on the pj screen is black in color, no movies

I use powerdvd instead of acer arcade deluxe because the latter does not play Blu-ray ripped movies, also the acer arcade does not play blu-ray disc from the blu-ray drive, it says graphic driver not compatible it does however play the demo disc when pj not connected

Acer :: Aspire External Lcd On DVI

Sep 9, 2008

I have an Aspire 9113 which I use as a desktop replacement with a 22" Samsung LCD and Logitech S510 wireless keyboard/mouse combo.

My problem is that every time I reboot the output displays on the laptop lcd and I have to switch manually to the external with the fn key-f5. This doesn't happen if I use the d-sub connector but obviously I want to connect using the DVI. In the bios there is a setting for either auto or both for boot up display but it only seems to apply to the d-sub connector.

Acer :: External Microphone On Aspire E1-522

Oct 10, 2014

Is there really no way to use an external microphone without purchasing one of those USB-pens to transfer it through that? 
 
The in-built microphone is dreadful, and I recently bought a microphone. I thought every laptop nowadays had an input for microphones. The AA e1-522 doesn't, or am I missing something? Why remove it in the first place...?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 External Monitor

Jan 4, 2010

I bought a samsung TV (LE19R86BD) to use mainly for a dual monitor setup with my laptop.

The supposed max resolution is 1440x900, however the only suitable options listed are 1280*768 (16:9/10) (what I currently use) and 1600*900 (the number of pixels are correct vertically, but it is squashed horizontally). Many other resolutions, none compatible, are listed up to 2048*1536. I have a second lower quality vga cable, which when I bought the Monitor, I managed to use it at 1440*900, but it causes ghosting. However, it no longer gives the option for 1440*900, and gives the same options as the high quality one.

(I haven't used it in almost a year)

I was wondering if there would be a way to force the resolution change, or maybe video driver update would help? (intel x3100/GMA965)

Acer Aspire V7 582PG :: Can't Detect External Monitors

Sep 20, 2013

I recently bought an Aspire V7 582PG, put in a new SSD, and then installed Windows 8. The laptop works fine, except it can't detect external monitors (in Control Panel, I get "Didn't detect another display". I have tried with 2 monitors (different models) that are known to work, through both HDMI and VGA.
 
I thought it might be a driver issue. Device Manager > "Display adapters" shows "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" and "NVidia GEForce GT 750M". Both drivers are up to date. "Monitors" shows "Generic PnP monitor", which is also up to date.
 
I then went to [URL] ...... to download the driver for my model. The only one that looked relevant was:
 
MonitorELANTECHHID Monitor Drivers1.1.5Installer here: [URL] .....
 
But when I unzip and run it, the installer window closes within a few seconds; I think it crashes rather than installing properly.

Acer :: Aspire One 752 11.6" "Netbook" (Formerly Known As The AS1410)

Mar 17, 2010

Looks like Acer is moving the Acer Aspire 1410 notebook line into their netbook segment with the Aspire One 752. The 752 looks identical to the 1410 and will ship with the same Celeron processors as the current 1410 line.

There is also a new TimelineX 1830T which looks like it might be replacing the 1810s.

Acer Aspire 5750Z :: Not Communicating With USB 3.0 External Hard Drive

Dec 30, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire 5750Z notebook which has fallen out with it's best friend the 2TB USB 3.0 Seagate expansion drive. The acer does not want to communicate with the external hard drive and will freeze, crash and stop responding. When the hard drive is not connected, the Acer is quite happy infact it works faster than it did before. Here is a list of the things:
 
1) I have removed the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers software. The acer restarted 3 times (to be expected) and reinstalled the missing drivers.
 
2) I have managed to gain a limited amount of access to the seagate where I partitioned one sector but it crashed again before I have the chance to do the other, and I have been unable to access the seagate since.
 
3) When I view disk management, I am never able to see the seagate drive sectors E and F but occasionally after running the seagate drive settings software I will see drive E but I am unable to access it.
 
3) I have checked the device manager for hardware conflicts both with the seagate connected as well disconnected and there are no hardware conflicts
 
4) I am tempted but not sure if I should flash the BIOS with this BIOS_Acer_1.21_A_A

I love my Acer but want to back it up and restore it to factory settings. I've been using it for over 2 years so it's full of stuff by now and I'd like to start fresh.

Acer :: ZA3 Netbook

Oct 5, 2009

I bought an acer ZA3. The only changes I made were I removed Mccafee recplaced with AVG and installed Firefox. The problem is is locks up when my grandaughter (who I bought it for) uses the built in games (cake time or something like that) or plays some web based dress up game. Even CTRL ALT DEL would not bring up the task manager. Did I just get a bad one or should I consider a different one?
