Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
My Acer Aspire 5100 completely freaks out when I plug an external monitor into it. I have a 42" TV that can be used as a monitor, and it in fact works perfectly when plugged in to an HP 530 notebook. Both machines running Vista. Changed the property settings to make it work, and the desktop does appear on the TV. But both screens blink every second or so and the laptop basically, well, freaks out. Windows "hour glass" icon appears and you can't do anything until the monitor is unplugged from the laptop. After several seconds, the laptop calms down and is normal again.
Any idea why this is happening?
Prombelms quite simple your 42 inch monitor has to many colors for the driver and it cann't work with it is incompatiable.....lala linda
