Question about Acer Aspire 5102WLMi Notebook
I tried looking for a soluton for my problem on the site but none would work. My laptop is acer 5102 and my TV is samsung LN32A450. I am trying to connect the laptop to the tv using a VGA cable and 2 RCA cables. The problem is when I connect them with the VGA, the screen on the tv says n signal. Some solutions on the site said to turn off the laptop monitor so that only TV monitor operates but I don't know how to do that. Also my in my conrol panel it doesn't shw any adapter gor secondary monitor. Can anyone help please? Thanks in advance.
Sound and picture are two seperate things unless you use an HDMI cable so lets just deal with the picture first
After you do the connection, you need to tell your laptop to present the picture to the TV.
1- On your keyboard, one of your function keys (F1, F2 etc.) will have a short cut for this as a secondary functionality. Check for the function key that has an icon on it that looks like a screen (usually it is f4 or f7). Then hit the key that activates your secondary functions and the key you just identified. This should activate the VGA output and in most cases will also give you a configruation screen (where you can select it as a secondary display, dual display etc.)
If this short cut doesnt work, you can try this
2- Make sure VGA cable is connected on both ends. Right click your desktop on the computer and select "Properties". On the new dialog, select the last tab "Settings". Click the drop down box under "Display" and you should see the TV as the secon option, select it. Then select the check box that says "Extend my display...", click Apply and OK. This should expand your screen to the TV, you should now be able to drag windows from your laptop's screen to your TV's.
Good luck! (Instructions on option 2 are for XP, if you use Vista let me know and I will look up the terminology for that)
