If you know how to let it work with an LCD or DLP projector then all you have to do is set the selector of the your LCD TV to the RGB or computer input. If not, then you have to hit the function key in order to activate the secondary port for the external display of your laptop.

My acer laptop screen has broke and i would like to know if its possible to connect it up to my 42" samsung plasma ?


Most laptops have a 15pin D-sub connection that allows you to attach an external display. Most LCD and plasma TV's also have a 15pin D-sub connector to connect a PC to.

Look on the side of your laptop and the back of your TV for this connector and if both have it just find a standard monitor cable to connect them.

Your laptop will have a function key to enable or disable the external display.

I HAVE CONNECTED MY ACER ASPIRE PC TO MY SAMSUNG LCDTV USING A VGA CABLE , THE PICTURE IS THERE , BUT I CANT GET ANY SOUND ?


The VGA cable only supplies video data to the LCD TV. Connect a sound cable from the audio out from the Acer PC to the audio input on the LCD TV to get sound from the LCD TV's speakers.

How to connect/configure my acer aspire 4736Z to my LCD TV using the HDMI port/cable of my laptop? i tried to connect the HDMI cable but my laptop hangs...please help


for HDMI, I guess you just connect it with HDMI cable to your LCD TV, and use the FN+F5 or F6 to switch display from laptop's LCD to external. I think it should be the same way as using projector.

Hello, You will also need to connect the audio cable. You can use a male-male audio connector from radio shack along with the s-video cable to solve your problem.

White screen on Acer Travelmate 7720


most likely you have a faulty LCD screen, the only option u have is to replaced it or u can use a external LCD screen to act as screen for your laptop. you'll be needing a VGA cable to connect your laptop to any LCD screen available.

HOW TO CONNECT SAMSUNG LCD TV TO ACER ASPIRE


Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:

If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
  1. Make sure your TV and computer are off.
  2. Using a 15 pin D-sub (standard) video cable, connect the Video Out jack on your computer's video card to the PC In jack on the back of your TV.
  3. Using an audio cable with a min-stereo plug on one end and two RCA jacks on the other, connect the Audio Out jack on your computer to the left and right PC Audio In jacks on your TV. (Note: If you have your computer connected to separate speakers, you can skip this step)
  4. Switch on the Notebook and Adjust the Resolution (800 x 600 pixels would do). You can go to Control Panel and Adjust the screen resolution. (Keep ‘Screen Refresh rate’ at 60hz in the Monitor Settings)
  5. Switch on the TV and try to Select the Source as 'PC' (you can do this by either pressing the 'Source' button several times on your TV remote or go to the Menu - Setup and Select the 'PC' as source there).
  6. In most cases, after following the above steps, the TV would start to show 'Auto Adjusting' message and it will start showing your Desk top on the TV. But incase it doesn't work, you can do the following:
a. Mostly the problem lies with the VGA cable. Make sure you have the right one (15 pin) and its securely attached at both ends. If you are not using the right VGA Cable, it means that there is no connection between your TV and Notebook. Your TV will show 'PC' in Grey in the Source Input list (Go to ‘Menu’ from the TV remote).
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.

White screen


This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.
