You get the audio from PC: you must use a separate audio cable to your TV audio input.
Configure your PC Display properties to a lower resolution until you reach a format your tv can display.
If you use a flat digital screen check the manual to know the resolution to be used with VGA input.
Use Dual screen option or swittch main screen/external/both using FN key + blue key showing screen on your keyboard. (F4 or F7? check manual.)

Press the Blue function key and toggle the screens. You can view, the Laptop, the Laptop and Screen, or just the screen.

Also you will need to flick through the channel button on the TV to get to the PC interface. Since you indicated you were using a VGA cable, this is likely the missing element.

Note: The VGA cable does not carry audio, you either had a separate audio interface to the TV or you were using RBG/Composite/S-Video/HDMI. So check to make sure you are using the correct cables.

How do I connect my Laptop Acer 5735 to my TV Sony KDL-40NX700, what kind of connection cables do I require?


If Your TV and Laptop have HDMI Port then you just need a HDMI Cable.
But if you dont have HDMI port. then you need two cables one from video and one for audio.
For Video you either VGA Cable(if you have VGA Port in your TV) or VGA to RCA Cable (Yellow Pin will be for video)
For audio You Need 3.5mm pin to RCA (white and Red for audio).
This pic is of VGA to RCA Cable

I have a vga to hdmi cable for my acer aspire 3680, when I connect the laptop to the tv with the cable, nothing happens. neither device sees the other or even registers that the cables are connected. is...


VGA has only analog video signal. It is not digital and does not have any audio either.
HDMI is a digital connection standard with both digital video and digital audio signals.
A cable with a VGA connector on one end and a HDMI connector on the other still needs a converter box to convert the analog signals into the digital signals required for the TV's HDMI. Click on the following link to go to web page titled VGA to HDMI Cable - An Unfortunate Myth

Connecting laptop to hd tv


IMake sure that you have the laptop for an VGA OUTPUT. When you toggle between the function keys. When your laptop LCD goes out it is in VGA OUT mode....when you toggle again it should be in LCD/VGA OUT (both TV and laptop should display). You need to set the TV to VGA mode as well...otherwise you might not get an output. If you still have a problem then test on a regular monitor to see if you are getting an output to the monitor

IF THIS HELPS PLEASE VOTE.....GOOD LUCK AND THANKS..

Trying to get my Acer Aspire 7720 blu ray player to play on my lg LCD tv. player plays fine on the laptop but not the tv. Connecting thru a VGA able for video feed. Help please


Hi there
You will need a HDMI cable, that is of course if the laptop has HDMI out and that the TV supports HDMI.
This is the only way you will be able to experience the full Blue-ray HD experience through the LCD TV.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!
