You need do
1) set your TV interface to PC port
2) connect the cable (you are sure it is a good condition) between laptop and TV
3) power on laptop boot system and then hold Fn and click F5(screen change), maybe click 1 or 2 times if you see LCD black and then next to TV screen.
hope help you do it well

How do I connect the Acer netbook to the TV?


The only option is using the VGA port on the Aspire One to hook it up to the TV.

Your TV must have a VGA in port for your to be able to hook your computer to your TV. All you need is a regular VGA cord.

Hello, I cannot connect my ACER ASPIRE 1640 to an external monitor. I only have a predeterminated monitor as configuration option. Please, help me. Thank you Luca.


Alright 1) Turn your laptop off, connect the cables to your external monitor such as a t.v, monitor screen, through your apropriate source such as HDMI, VGA, or S-vdieo which ever one you are connecting it to. Turn your external Monitor on, and if it is a t.v make sure it's the the correct input otherwise it won't work. Then Turn your computer on, once your computer is in the Operating system and completly loaded, Then you want to press the FN button + the F5 button to swtich your display from your laptop to your external screen. There is a little Icon that appears on the screen that lets you know that it is switching either it's duplicating, to your external monitor only or back to your laptop screen, your screen may go blank for a second once your made your choise. Then you should be god to go.
2) If it doesnt work, you might want to try loading your computer first and then plugging in the cables and turning your tv on.
3) If that doesn't work, then maybe your FN button is disabled, and you need to enable it in acer windows mobility aplication. If you have question let me know.

How do I connect my acer aspire 5050 to TV?


Since the Acer Aspire One D250 only has VGA output for its video, you will need a VGA cable to connect between the D250 and a TV that accepts VGA input as a video source. The sound is separate. A mini-stereo jack on an audio cable with two RCA phono plugs on the other end would be used to connect the D250 audio output (usually used for headphones) to the left and right audio inputs on the TV. You may need to use the TV setup screens to select the proper video and audio sources. With the TV on and proper video source selected, you now should be able to press Fn and F5 to get a menu in the middle of the D250's screen that allows you to select the video destination by holding down Fn key and pressing the F5 key repeatedly. The single large screen icon (3rd one from the left) is the one to select video output to VGA port only which would send it to your TV. The sound on the D250 does not need to be selected but you may wish to adjust its level and/or properties to be more suitable for TV.

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.

ACER Aspire One AOA150-1635 and Sharp XR32-X projector


you need to connect it with VGA. then enable the 2nd monitor

now you should have a wallpaper on the projector, you can drag objects to it by draging them out from the screen.

if you don't have the 2nd screen option. Then hold down the blue FN button and then tap F5 see if the picture comes, the FN + F5 will swap around with the outputs.
