Question to Acer Ferrari 4000 Owners

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Niels Berglund, Oct 2, 2005.

  1. Sorry for being slightly off topic (it still has to do with Win64 though).
    Ok, so on my desktop I have now gone 64 bits 100%, (no dual boot to 32 bit
    what so ever), and everything works flawlessly.

    I now want to do the same on my laptop and Iam thinking of getting an Acer
    Ferrari 4000. I know there are a couple of guys/girls here using that laptop.
    I will be using the laptop for presentations and I just wonder if Fn-F5 to
    send output to external projector works with whatever video drivers there
    are for the 4000 and xp64? I'm asking 'cause I saw somewhere else someone
    having problem with the 4000 and doing this (this was with Vista Server though).

    Thanks!!

    Mine does fine via the dvi port to a plasma screen for work at home. I
    found a plasma.inf that set it to the right resolution (something like
    852 x 480).

  3. The interface for switching screen output is a bit bizarre, but once you
    figure it out, yes it works just fine. I regularly switch to send output to
    the DVI port.
