Hook up Avertec 3200 to Sharp Aqueous TV

Is it possible to hook up my Avertec 3200 coputer to my Sharp Aqueous HD TV in order to play music downloaded onto my computer through my TV speakers? What kind of a connector do I need?
Also where can I download a manual for the computer?
Thank you

    Thank you for the manual. My Sharp Aqueous is model LC-20B8U.

    Went to circuit city to purchase the cable you suggested. They said it would not hook into my laptop-the outlet on my lpatop is not a plug in but rather a blue rectangle containing 3 rows of 5 little holes.( Sorry I don't know what this is called) They said I would need a converter box to convert the format of my laptop to that of my TV. Do you agree with this assessment?

After I found the manual somewhere on the internet, I realized that it is already available here. (Lucky you!)

I could not find a specific manual for your Aquos TV (which model?). Look into your manual, and see if there is an option to connect via VGA of HDMI for video
If you want to use your TV speakers, it depends what audio input options you have on your TV. You might need a cable like this:

The red/white connectors into your TV, the 2.5mm plug into your computer.

    Well, you asked for an audio connection, not a video connection.
    That's a different cable.

    And -no, I do not agree with that assessment.
    I found the manual for your TV here. Take a look at page 33 (page 34 in the pdf-file) and you can see the connector type. (It also shows the audio connection I mentioned in my earlier post!) This video connection is called "VGA" (or 15-pin D-sub). It is exactly the same connector you use to hook up a standard monitor to your computer. All you need is a standard VGA cable like this:

    Page 35 (36 in pdf) shows a list with all possible resolutions. With your XGA video onboard you should be able to get a resolution of 1,024x786. Try it out!

    In other words: just use a normal monitor cable you have lying around (or take the one of your best friend to see if it works...;-), before you buy one. On older TV's you needed a converter, because the signals were different. Nice sales trick though...!

    You might have to play with the settings a bit to get the picture the way you want it to be, but I looked at the instructions in the manual and the explanation sounds pretty straight forward.

    If you get stuck, come back here and leave a comment.

Avertec laptop will not turn on when power cord is hooked up. power cord chirps when plugged into the laptop

It sound like you have whats called a short on the DC socket (which is where the power plugs in) unfortunately the only way to repair this is to strip the laptop down, remove the motherboard and repair/replace the Socket. It is unlikely but possible that the charger is at fault.

If your TV has a VGA port then yes, otherwise you will need to purchase a special adapter that tends to not work well and be expensive. -Alex

I have a 3200 series, and i'm trying to hook it up to my emerson hdtv LC320EM1 so i can use as monitor.

you you cannot use that laptop and that tv together without an adapter/converter. the tv does not have a vga or dvi-i input, and the computer does not have an hdmi or dvi-d output output.

you will have to find a vga to hdmi converter, which start at around $40,

Why is the karaoke music from my external hard

Playing through the USB port can cause all sorts of "problems" also ensure NO other software is competing for the CPU time. It is always best to play work on use, anything or file, from the actual hard drive. simply copy the files to the HD, and use them from there Also more RAM is always beneficial Also make sure you have the most up-to-date Codecs installed too.

Ooops, if ntldr is missing, it means your operating system is dead. You should reinstall windows from cd. Must get into Bios to select first boot device as Cd and then press f10 and yes. When you start your lap it says you what key press to get to Bios or boot menager.
