Problems connecting my acer laptop with tv

Hello,
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)

    That means you picked a non compatible resolution. 


    Make sure the TV is still connected. Right click your desktop, select properties, then the settings tab. Under Display, select your TV screen which should be the second option in the drop down box. Once you select the TV, set the resolution setting (right under a slider control) to 1366 x 768, click Apply and OK. Then do step 1 again and you should get the picture on the TV.

    No problem, glad to be able to help.

    Your laptop should automatically recognize the native resolution and go back, but if it doesn't you can repeat the same steps and set the resolution for your laptop screen. Go to the same settings tab and while your laptop screen is selected in the "Display" drop down box (1st option), adjust the resolution from the slider. Native resolution of the laptop should be all the way to the right...

Connecting my acer aspire 5100/5102 to my tv via cable


There are a number of possible ways to getbthe display up onto your television. Im not certain which colours to use with which but once its all plugged in you will need to hold down the FN (funtion) key and press one of the F1-F12 buttons. to work out which one you just need to look for a button that looks like a screen or two screens and that should make the display external. good luck

Acer Aspire 5100(5102) colors on screen etc


Sounds like you have a bad lcd! Was the PC dropped or hit? If not the moment you saw this problem you should have taken it back. When you start having problems with the multiple colors, blurrs, etc, there is a vga connector that is connected from the monitor to the mother board, it is either bad or your backlight is going bad. Either way it is costly and the only fix is to have it repaired. Sounds like the data strip that connects to the LCD and to the mother board is loose and causing serious problems. Best guess is LCD is bad which in return links to the data strip! Can be fixed though! Anything can be fixed if it is operating, but less than 100%!
