Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

1 Answer

No display after crash using clone desktop

I have an acer aspire 5612 laptop which was connected to my tv via a VGA cable. Using clone desktop I was watching a program with my tv display on and laptop display off (I pressed Fn + F5 3 times to get this). During playback the laptop crashed for some reason. When I restarted the laptop both the LCD on the laptop and the TV screen was blank. I now have no way of seeing whats going on. I teried installing the recovery disc but this seems to do nothing after spinning up for about 10 seconds. When I switch the laptop on the CPU activity light comes on solid for about 5 seconds and then it seems to be doing nothing. I have tried entering safe mode by tapping F8 on startup but this will not work either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as i have all my coursework on the laptop as well as family photos, none of which I can afford to lose!

Many Thanks in advance.

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 acer aspire mini laptop to digital lcd tv?


You get the audio from PC: you must use a separate audio cable to your TV audio input.
Configure your PC Display properties to a lower resolution until you reach a format your tv can display.
If you use a flat digital screen check the manual to know the resolution to be used with VGA input.
Use Dual screen option or swittch main screen/external/both using FN key + blue key showing screen on your keyboard. (F4 or F7? check manual.)

Does ur video card support tv out?
If it does, u cannot use ur screen AND a tv at the same time.It's one or the other. Go to the display options and select the tv out option for ur vid card. Ur screen will go black and the tv will then have ur desktop.
