The inputs on a TV are normally via the ariel and go into a pre-amp

To get a signal in you, would again, normally connect to the RGB or Video in which bypasses the pre-amp.

The VGA cable will be outputting a digital signal which a monitor will understand but a TV will not as it prime supply is via an analog signal

You may be able to get a connection if you process the signal through a freeview box which changes the signal from analog to digital

I have an Alba tv and a acer laptop. I bought a 15 pin VGA cable and connected it to my tv but it is just saying no signal on the tv, can you help?


Since you have a Cable , I supposed you did pluged it in... one side in the Input of your TV and the other side in the VGA connector on the side of your ACER,
Once this is done you have to press and Hold the FN Key of your Acer and press the F5 keyA menu will display 4 icons an icon of your ACER, your ACER and a monitor, a monitor only and an icon of a projector.
press F5 Twice and the signal will show on Both your Acer and to the TV
Tree time will send the signal to the TV only Five times and you will return to the Icon list on your ACER

I have an Acer aspire m3200. I tried to connect it to my hdtv, i got picture but no sound using the VGA cord, and got nothing using the HDMI cord. Please help


Hello,
Using a vga cable to connect your laptop to a hdtv is very easy but the cable does not transfer the audio signal, you need another cable aswell. You need a 3.5mm jack to jack cable, one end plugs into your headphone socket on your laptop and the other end plugs into the pc audio socket at the back of your tv (usually next to where you plug in the vga plug).

VGA has only analog video signal. It is not digital and does not have any audio either.
HDMI is a digital connection standard with both digital video and digital audio signals.
A cable with a VGA connector on one end and a HDMI connector on the other still needs a converter box to convert the analog signals into the digital signals required for the TV's HDMI. Click on the following link to go to web page titled VGA to HDMI Cable - An Unfortunate Myth

Don't forget that the TV source or input needs to be set to "PC". Once that is done turn the netbook OFF, then plug the VGA cable into the netbook and start the computer. The computer screen should automatically show up on the TV.

I have jus brought a acer aspire m5100 it has an hdmi output but i dnt know how to activate it can u help thanks


I have just spoken with Acer Support, and where M5100's have dedicated graphics cards, this disables the onboard graphics including the HDMI.

The onl way to eabl the HDMI is to remove the dedicated graphics card, and revert to shared graphics which will enable HDMI. The problem with this, according to the support technician, is that it will slow the computer down considerably.

Why the hell do Acer do this? They must know this is an issue in the first place; absolute idiots.
