I have an Acer Aspire 5000 and want to watch my saved movie on TV.
My Laptop and my Philips TV do have USB ports, but if I connect them nothing happens. I cannot activate any picture or sound on my TV (no FN key is working, hardware manager doesn't find the "external monitor", TV doesn*t find the laptop neither in AV or Side or HDMI mode) - what needs to be done or purchased??

Most recent laptops come with a port to connect to a TV, depending upon the input ports the TV has. The two most common are VGA and HDMI, and you will need to check which of these each item has. It is then simply a case of getting the appropriate cable to connect the two together, and then on the TV select the input from the menu, and on the laptop, make sure that the external video port is active (usually a Fnct and "F" key - eg Fnct + F5 for a Toshiba Satellite Pro U200).

The LCD TV does not have the software installed on it to integrate with the Pen drive. That is why. Pen drives are meant for input and output of data via computers with USB ports. The pieces of software required to make a computer recognize and interact with a Pen drive (or indeed any other external flash, solid state or hard disk drive based external storage devices) are USB and Storage Device Drivers built-into a computer's Operating System. Your TV does not have such drivers installed on it because it does not have an internal Storage Device to interact with external storage devices. Your notebook can connect to the LCD TVs VGA Port by connecting a VGA Cable from the Port to the Notebooks own VGA Port -> press and hold the Fn key bottom left of the keyboard -> press the Function key at the top of the keyboard bearing the image of two monitors -> release both keys -> use the TV's remote to select Menu -> Input/Source -> PC.
connect a laptop to the set, using the usb port contact phillips on line download the old flash to the computer save the old flash download as a file and, to the usb flashdrive connected to your laptop reload the set either with the laptop or, the flashdrive unplug the set first then: remove the flash drive
Sounds like a netfilx service your using? Yes the laptop will need to be connected to the TV, Now if you want to save to pvr I would suggest you get a ROKU box www.roku.com there about 100 bucks wit hthis you can save to a tivo and more!

you need a VGA connector and your tv would have to have a VGA input most newer ones do your laptop may have A SVIDEO connection which you can buy an svideo to RCA video and connect that way which is how i connect my laptop to my tv its an acer 5520 5912 then i use audio an audio out from head phone jack into rca audio ports for the sound .... but i dont recomend doing it for things such as websurfing because its almost impossible to read the text on the screen its only good for watching movies or webcams or something like that videos play really good alot better than your laptops LCD screen but text like i said is really blurry hard to read it
You cannot charge fhe laptop via the USB port, you can charge a USB device from the USB port but not the other wat around.
You can get the power connect on the laptop repaired and then it will power the laptop and charge the battery.
