I have just bought an acer aspire 7720g laptop and i want to connect it to my 50" lg plasma tv, can you help


If your TV has a VGA input, you can use a regular VGA cable from the computer's external VGA connector.

If the set doesn't have a VGA input, you can get an adapter cable (here's one) to go from the computer to the TV's component video input.

You might have to enable the computer's external monitor from the keyboard. One of the function keys usually does this, see your computer manual.

I am trying to connect my acer PC to a tv but get


The inputs on a TV are normally via the ariel and go into a pre-amp

To get a signal in you, would again, normally connect to the RGB or Video in which bypasses the pre-amp.

The VGA cable will be outputting a digital signal which a monitor will understand but a TV will not as it prime supply is via an analog signal

You may be able to get a connection if you process the signal through a freeview box which changes the signal from analog to digital

    I have acer 5610 i want to know if i have video out or no


    Your PC has a VGA out port. However I think you mean does it have an analog video output that you can connect to a TV or similar device. Yes, there is TV output and S-Video output.

    Step 1
    Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
    Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.
