To enable the s-vidoe on an Acer simply press these two keys at the same time on the keyboard: "FN" + "F3"

You may need to change the resolution on the output to the TV if it is too small or too big.

Change Resolution:

  1. Click "Start"
  2. Click "Control Panel"
  3. Double Click "Display"
  4. Click the "Settings" tab on the top
  5. You will see 2 displays in the box , and an "Identify" button on the bottom. Hit that button and see what number your TV shows , should be #2
  6. Click on the screen with number 2 on it then look near the bottom, there will be a section that says "Resolution"; slide it to the left to make it bigger and the right to make it smaller

I dnt have driver for ma laptop acer aspire 5520-5908

Here is a link to all the drivers for your model.

More than likely, you will need the MOST UP TO DATE:

  1. Chipset
  2. Audio
  3. Touchpad
  4. Graphics (VGA)
  5. Wireless
You may have some of those installed already, which is okay, you can pick and choose. Good luck!

Cannot get video to tv with vga to s-video adapter

try to use the vga output enable function key. it should be one of the "F-keys" (F5, F6...) hold the "Fn" key (generally in blue for the acer aspire 5520 series) and press a key that has a drawing resembling two monitors, but not the one that has a brightness drawing inside on of them, as it will turn off your main screen backlights. in the acer aspire 5520, it is the F5 key. look for a picture of this model's keyboard and you should see a similar key on your netbook as it is a manufacturer standard.
