Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
VGA uses analogue signals and HDMI uses digital. you'll need a converter box to make it work. Have a look on you tube.

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.

"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,
