That is quite normal unless you reconfigure the video settings on the laptop.

SOURCE: Blank screen upon startup

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

My friend, the easiest and by far the best way I have seen is to set the advance timings on your laptop just right and use a vga to scart cable.

Restart your Laptop to recognize again your TV on the system.

One of the way to connect the whole system is using only HDMI cable version 1.3a. There is audio return channel built into the cable.So you do not have to connect the optic cable.

Once you made all the proper connection, meaning the hdmi cable from your laptop to your tv, and tunning your laptop to the right hdmi port (like hdmi side, rear1 or 2 however many hdmi input your tv has). Then I believe on acer model, you need to press the FN button and the F5 button at the same time that switches your external video source, Leave the Fn button press and then slowly press the f5 button key until your screen is display on the monitor HDMI. Like said earlier, you need to make sure the tv is tuned to the correct HDMI port.

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.....

Problem connecting HDMI cable


Hey there I don't see why your playstation 3 should be doing that other than the console being defective. Sony doesn't have this problem that often and actually this is the first time i have heard of such problem. Try making sure the the HDMI cable is connected at both ends all the way in and also make sure your Samsung is a 1080P which i am pretty sure it is and finally if you have a friend or another 1080P HDTV in your house i would try and see if your ps3 will support the 1080P feature. If you still have the problem even when you use a different TV then its the ps3 that is malfunctioning otherwise it would be your Samsung. Let me know how that turns out alright.
