Does ur video card support tv out?
If it does, u cannot use ur screen AND a tv at the same time.It's one or the other. Go to the display options and select the tv out option for ur vid card. Ur screen will go black and the tv will then have ur desktop.

Hi

I'm not sure what you mean by VGI. I will assume you mean VGA (Analogue - D Shaped with 15 pinholes).

When pixels or line of lixels fail on a monitor, they usually fail in spots or in a vertical lines due to the design of the matrix.

Since both monitors are sharing a single cable and the graphics card is a new one, the fault automatically isolates itself to either the monitor or its VGA connector.

Check that none of the pins in the end that connects to the faulty monitor are bent and/or touching one another and shorting.

Then try changing the resolution of the graphics card itself and test the monitor's performance at various settings to see if the resolution seeting is straining against the limits of the monitors range.

Right click on open space in the desktop > properties > settings > click and hold the slider scale step by step, up and down the scaled to test the monitor > apply > ok > test for a reasonable period > reset.

Also test the monitor with a single VGA cable to another computer (even a laptop, using the Fn key + external monitor function key).

Thses tests should tell you if the monitor is failing.

I hope this helps.

I have an Acer aspire m3200. I tried to connect it to my hdtv, i got picture but no sound using the VGA cord, and got nothing using the HDMI cord. Please help


Hello,
Using a vga cable to connect your laptop to a hdtv is very easy but the cable does not transfer the audio signal, you need another cable aswell. You need a 3.5mm jack to jack cable, one end plugs into your headphone socket on your laptop and the other end plugs into the pc audio socket at the back of your tv (usually next to where you plug in the vga plug).

Hi Henley,

Try holding down the blue fn key, and press and release f5. This key combination changes video output modes on Acer laptops. Also, bring your video resolution down to it's minimal settings and try again. Reply if you still have any issues and I can help further.

Regards,

Joe

Acer aspire 3610 can i use my laptop to connect to lcd tv i have vga output


So if there is not a vga input connection on your lcd tv which most do. You can get a vga to dvi cable adapter in conjunction with a dvi to hdmi conversion cable. Note that you may have to change your resolution settings in order to veiw computer images on your lcd t.v. If your laptop has an svideo output you can also connect this way but the image quality will be greatly reduced.
