Acer laptop F5 button doesnt work

Acer / Ferrari 1100

Specs: Windows 7
We have 2 different Acer laptops and when we link either to a projector the F5 button brings no response - the only way to get the image from the laptop screen to the projector screen is to reboot the laptop. Is there a settings problem OR does someone know another shortcut key combination?

Thankyou, I had seen that, but didnt understand it - no idea what flashing is! I understoofd that there was an alternative shortkey combination you could do if FnF5 didnt work?

yes, Im pressing the right keys - it seems that its just invisible to projectors - when you hook it up and it scans through attached devices it just doesnt seem to be able to find the laptop and then if you Fn F5 just nothing happens. Heard someone say you could press Ctrl-Alt-Esc or something to get the same effect but cant remember exactly?
