Issues connecting acer 4420 to sharp aquos 32 720p lcd tv
When i connect my laptop through the vga cable to my tv the screen flashes every 3 seconds (vista is my OS), but when i connnectd a IBM R51 to the tv everything was great.. also i downgraded my acer to xp and the screen was not flashing, but i had to put vista back on it due to a whole slew of issues with xp on that model. the video card in the acer 4420 is a radeon express 1250, but i know its not the card i believe it is the catalyst control center, has anyone had this issue with the flashing on the tv... any fixes for it?

Hi, 1) tell us do ur pc is directly connected to your internet modem or its using wifi?? 2) Do your network card is installed properly and after connecting it to router is it getting any ip from router or not? 3) Do you know that it is reaching till your router?
I had the same problem with my Optoma ES566 and solved it by doing the following: 1. Connect the receiver to the projector using the vga cable. 2. Plug in the projector and the receiver. 3. Turn the projector and the receiver on. 4. With the computer booted, plug the USB dongle into an available port. The light on the dongle will flash green and then turn amber when the device is recognized. The projected image should change from the Imation logo to your desktop.
I use these and the previous model without any issues.
1. They must be plugged into the wall socket. It's okay to use an extension cord between the adapter and the wall, but never a surge suppressor or UPS 2. The master need to be connected to you router 3. To test your connection do the following -Plug the master into the wall at the router location -Plug the slave into the outlet where the computer will be -Press and hold the setup button on the slave unit only for 3-5 seconds The leds on the slave will flash for a second or two and then turn solid. The number of solid lights you see tell you what your connection speed will be 0-no connection, 1-<10MB , 2=-10-30MB, 3->30MB.
I always unplug the ethernet cables from the adapter when testing, but I don't know if that is necessary.
I have never gotten less then 2 leds in my house, but it's new.
Can you give some additional info on what you are using for OS. In general the ATI software for Vista will install with no problem right from there website.
If you have jumped ship for Linux, then there are different issues with each distro. I currently use Ubuntu 8.10 and it comes with the ATI driver. It will recognise the hardware right after bootup. Other flavors like Fedora 9,10 are not as easy.
My other half has this problem on his Acer laptop with Broadcom 802.11 wireless. This is how I have finally solved it.
1) Open Internet explorer
2) Type in your ISP address (tiscali is 192.168.1.1 so will be something similar to this for other ISP's)
3) This opened the ISP configuration screens and I opened 'SetUp'
4) I had to choose 'PPPoA'
5) I had to then enter the main username and password on the account
6) Set the connection to 'Always On'
7) Save Settings - this rebooted the internet connection (did not reboot the whole laptop) I closed the wired connection and disconnected the cable at this point.
8) Right click in your Wireless Icon on lower taskbar
9) If no wireless connection showing click to search
10) I then got a screen asking for the network key for the modem (mine is on the bottom of the modem but I keep it written down then I dont have to fiddle with the modem
Finally - Connect !
Hope this helps :-) By the way I got this info from ISP website by entering their 'Help' section, typing in 'Wireless' and clicking on the option that came up for my particular modem type.
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear
stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.
I think Tech Support is hiring if you want a job.
If your using DHCP you can try to assign an IP address. Assign a channel on the router not auto-select. But it does sound like just a weak connection. Not hardware related. I'm sure your laptop is just fine.
Without spending alot of money, try another brand router. If it works, great. If you get the same results (bad connection), take the router back and get your money back.
If all else fails, take your laptop to a place that has a wireless internet connection (Circuit City, BestBuy, StarBucks, Etc..) and see if it works there. You may need to change the location of the router.
