Hi I have an Acer Aspire 4920. It's a good laptop and have been using it for about 2 weeks now. One issue I have is that the VGA connector on the laptop has no screw holes which means when your try to screw the VGA plug to the socket via the thumb screws..you can't!! This isn't a big problem but its sub standard.

As far as connecting it to the TV is concerned. The laptop should have a yellows S VIDEO out din socket on the left hand side near the buillt in NETWORK and MODEM Line ports. You need to connect a SVIDEO cable from here to the TV's SVIDEO or SCART(using a suitable SVideo to Scart). Then make sure the TV is set on the correct SVIDEO input. Now reboot the laptop. The [FN] + [F5] only works if you are using the VGA output to a LCD or Monitor/Projector. Once back into windows desktop you need to go into the properties of the graphics card and activate it through the menu under one of the tabs.

Hope this helps.

I can't get my Acer 5610 Laptop to connect to my LG LCD TV. It just says no signal.... I am using a 15 Pin VGA Cable.


Once connected the LCD press Fn + F8 to switch the monitors. You cannot use both the screens at the same time.
If pressing Fn and F8 does not help Try other combinations of function keys with Fn

Fn F5 not working


You have to configure the settings for the external display (TV) in windows.(assuming that's your OS)
Go to control panel >display >properties >advanced and make sure the TV is selected and active as secondary display.

Verify that you get a picture on the TV when doing this, if you do - you're all set.
Restart the computer and the problem should be fixed.
