VGA uses analogue signals and HDMI uses digital. you'll need a converter box to make it work. Have a look on you tube.

SOURCE: problems connecting my acer laptop with tv

Sound and picture are two seperate things unless you use an HDMI cable so lets just deal with the picture first
After you do the connection, you need to tell your laptop to present the picture to the TV.
1- On your keyboard, one of your function keys (F1, F2 etc.) will have a short cut for this as a secondary functionality. Check for the function key that has an icon on it that looks like a screen (usually it is f4 or f7). Then hit the key that activates  your secondary functions and the key you just identified. This should activate the VGA output and in most cases will also give you a configruation screen (where you can select it as a secondary display, dual display etc.)
If this short cut doesnt work, you can try this
2- Make sure VGA cable is connected on both ends. Right click your desktop on the computer and select "Properties". On the new dialog, select the last tab "Settings". Click the drop down box under "Display" and you should see the TV as the secon option, select it. Then select the check box that says "Extend my display...", click Apply and OK. This should expand your screen to the TV, you should now be able to drag windows from your laptop's screen to your TV's.
Good luck! (Instructions on option 2 are for XP, if you use Vista let me know and I will look up the terminology for that)

SOURCE: CONNECTING ACER TO THE TV

Hi I have an Acer Aspire 4920. It's a good laptop and have been using it for about 2 weeks now. One issue I have is that the VGA connector on the laptop has no screw holes which means when your try to screw the VGA plug to the socket via the thumb screws..you can't!! This isn't a big problem but its sub standard.

As far as connecting it to the TV is concerned. The laptop should have a yellows S VIDEO out din socket on the left hand side near the buillt in NETWORK and MODEM Line ports. You need to connect a SVIDEO cable from here to the TV's SVIDEO or SCART(using a suitable SVideo to Scart). Then make sure the TV is set on the correct SVIDEO input. Now reboot the laptop. The [FN] + [F5] only works if you are using the VGA output to a LCD or Monitor/Projector. Once back into windows desktop you need to go into the properties of the graphics card and activate it through the menu under one of the tabs.

Hope this helps.

Check the BIOS - some laptops can be set in there to start with the LCD, monitor or both.

SOURCE: How do I conect my Acer aspire 5750 lap top to my

"Out of range" means that the picture displayed by the laptop cannot be displayed by the TV, either because the resolution is not supported or the refresh rate is not supported.

Sometimes, I've had to set the refresh rate (from the laptop Display settings) to 59Hz to get it to work as opposed to the default 60Hz.

What resolution does your TV support? What resolution does the laptop support?

Matching these as closely as possible and you'll get the picture on the TV screen.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes,

MY acer ZD1 screen has gone black how do i connect it to a pc screen blind


1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the Right/Rear of the laptop.
Example of a VGA connector (Port), and a VGA Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for an example of a VGA Cable.

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Yes. You can also connect an HDMI cable to it, and HDTV with this capability.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not;
There are at least 3 display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor.
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key. At the SAME time tap once on the F5 key. The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

Hi, I am trying to connect my Acer Aspire 5600 laptop to my Sony Bravia (HDMI) TV. I bought a VGA cable to connect the two (because my laptop is not HDMI). Once i have plugged in the VGA cable in both...


The Bravia needs the video input to be changed to PC when you connect a computer to the Bravia.
You still need to press FN + F5 to divert the laptop video data to the video port on the laptop for the TV.

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.

Acer aspire 3003LCi will not project on tv we are using vga cable and have tried the Fn and F5 buton


Hi,
Try holding the fn & F5 buttons down for a good few seconds. Try fn and F7 too.
Right-click on the desktop and choose properties, and see if the 2nd monitor is recognised or not.
It might be a duff VGA cable, or crappy MS drivers instead of the real thing. Always worth downloading some fresh ones.

How do i connect my acer 5738 laptop to my tv


Hi,
First of all your TV should support both HDMI and VGA.
If it does lets start with HDMI as you will get audio through the HDMI cable.
Connect the HDMI cable to the TV and set the source on the TV to HDMI using your remote control, connect the other end to the laptop, hold down Fn and hit F5 to toggle between screens.
See if that helps and let me know how you get on.


Good luck

No image on hdtv


First off, is the tv set to use the hdmi input? if not, change tv to hdmi input and try again. If still no good, you likely need to tell the laptop to use the hdmi connector. Try this:
  1. connect hdmi from laptop to tv and select hdmi input on tv.
  1. while holding the blue fn key (bottom left side of kbd) press and release the F5 key. This will toggle the laptop between the laptop lcd display, external connectors (vga/hdmi), or both simultaneously. Let me know if this works or not.....
