My os is vista how can connect to my jvc flat tv as a second monitor?

How you connect to your tv is not so much a matter of OS as it is dependent on what type of video connections are available on your laptop whether RGB, S-Video, mini-display port to DVI, or HDMI.
Once the tv is connected then you will need to right click your desktop and choose whether you want the tv to be a clone display (desktop to show on both your laptop screen and the tv, or use the extended desktop setting to have half the screen be on the laptop and the other half to be on flat screen tv.

Hi. Hope some can help. I have an acer aspire one AOD150. Somehow my settings have changed for the monitor and I am unable to change it back. My in-built laptop monitor is using the plug and play monitor...

Fist press the input on your remote to make sure the tv is in VGA mode so it can receive the signal from the laptop. The with the laptop plugged into that port you should see your desktop on the tv.

You need a male to male VGA cable long enough to reach from your laptop's location to the rear of your TV. Connect this cable to the "PC Input" on your TV and the "VGA out" on your laptop. Select "PC Input" on your TV's remote and you should see your laptop screen. Your resolution will probably drop down, but this is normal as it is a bigger screen than the laptop expects to see. If you get "No Input" message on your TV, try using the "Fn" button together with whatever function button shows a picture of two monitors separated by a slash. This should switch the screen to the TV.

Just plugging in the monitor to your VGA port on the laptop won't make it display. You have to toggle to the exteral display, or both. Usually you have to hold down your function key, and then hit the external display key. It could be F1 thru F8, depending on your laptop model. Mine is F6. If you toggle thru the modes, your CRT should display . The missing pin is no concern!

Have damaged screen extensa 4220, can i connect laptop to tv ? which cable do i need?

well u can connect it to a computer monitor or to TV by using this product

follow this link to see it and all the required cables are included in the product

but my advice is if u want to connect ur laptop to an old TV (Not flat and doesn't have a high resolution) don't connect to it and buy a new LCD screen to ur laptop , so just connect ur laptop to any TV which is flat or LCD and have a high reolution cause u may face a problem in colors and resolution

good luck

Monitor will not display

Your display app controls that, try updating drivers/ software for graphics card on laptop.
Or press the monitor button (usually Fn + something) till it comes right

Screen Flickering on Acer 3680-2682

Ok we must remember when we setup any device on our PC, one of the many non PnP devices is and LCD Monitor, your PC should always be shutdown before installing a new Monitor. If you did not do this you could have damaged the I/O port on your PC. Not a definite, but possible! When you plug up a monitor or any serial cable while the PC is still on, it is of a low voltage which can casue some issues for you! Sounds like this one is yours!
