Hi,

If I may add, it may be necessary to lower down the screen resolution and the screen refresh rate of the laptop to match the capability of the TV. This is of course in addition to cycling (pressing repeatedly) the Fn + F5 keys to toggle the display to be LCD only, LCD + external TV, external only.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Without knowing the brand & model as well as the capability (limitation) of the TV unit, could only suggest try with the lowest possible screen resolution & scree refresh rate on the laptop's display properties.

Turn off notebook. Remove the battery. Press Power button. Notebook should start working. Wait for 15 secs. If the screen still blank press Power button and hold it for approx. 4 seconds until notebook is powered off. Then press power button again. Bingo, problem should be solved.

Hi i have an acer aspire one....i want to play movie through TV


I would recommend you s-video. I also have an Acer Aspire and s-video is working perfectly. you have to change the second monitor's resolution on your PC to the display and frequency of the TV. The most common configuration is 800x600 display with a 60mhtz refresh rate (frequency), and send the image through the additional monitor (your TV).
