I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook and I want to connect my HP w220H2 monitor to it. How do I do that?

hi there,

Connect the monitor to the

laptop's 15-pin video connection on the back of the computer

Once connected, your laptop may automatically switch

to the new external display or you may be required to press

a sequence of keys in order to switch from the laptop to the external display

For example, often either Fn + F3, Fn + F5, Fn + F8, or Fn + F9

is pressed to switch between alternate displays

depends on the model

tried fn and f5, it worked for a while, then the remote monitor froze and I now can't get it to work again, am I doing something wrong ?
fn and f5 worked for about an hour, then the remote monitor froze. When I tried the fn and f5 again it wont work. Unfortunately the screen on the acer notebook is broken and I have just fuzzy lines, so I can't use the laptop at all.
