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...

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
Manual
. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

Try the following: Using your FN key and the F7 Key together it might work again. You could have toggled the touchpad off. If that does not work you have issues with either the touchpad or the operating system. Best of Luck.

HOW TO ENABLE BLUETOOTH IN THIS NOTEPAD ?


The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.

2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.

3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.

I hope you may find it very helpful.
