Connect Laptop to TV via USB

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??

How do I use a USB to watch a movie on Toshiba TV? Or hook computer up to TV to watch it?


Hi
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).
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Your TV does not have a USB port so you cannot connect an external HDD and stream movies on to the TV. But you can buy a HDD based media player which has the necessary output sockets as well as all kinds of decoders built in to stream movies on to your TV.

I want to connect my acer aspire 5735 to my tv , how ?


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

Dc jack broken


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.
