Try this:
Start -> Control Panel ->Display

Select the settings-tab

Check the "Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor"


I am assuming you connect to your LCD TV with VGA or DVI cable?

You may also have to press Fn+F5 (or some other combo) to enable the vga/DVI out on your computer. You may also have to change the resolution for the secondary display (the TV)

White screen on Acer Aspire Z3801

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. - rules

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty

if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free

restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

hope this helps

I just moved my Acer 19" monitor and everything went off. I checked all the connections but it is not turning on. any suggestions?

Check the VGA lead, it is possible that when moving the monitor, you damaged one of the pins that connects in the socket on the monitor, remove the lead and also inspect the socket if there is a broken pin inside it remove this and try a new vga lead.

If no pins are broken and / or the power is not even reaching the monitor, check the kettle lead, look for signs of damage to the rubber / plastic plug and the socket on the monitor (assume this one is fed directly from the mains?), If you have been unfortunate enough to have damaged one of the pins that is in the socket you will need a TV repairman to fix this.

Check also the condition of the lead itself, for breaks and whether the fuse in the plug has blown.

After that, your problem will need to be looked at by a qualified TV repairman, as the fault must lie on the board itself

Trying to connect Acer One to TV

The 15 pin connector is for a computer type monitor and MOST TV's do not have that type input.

Some TV's have a "S" type input or some form of NTSC video (usually yellow jack) plus two jacks for stereo sound.

You would need a special convertor if you only have the 15 pin SVGA plug on the Acer.

I have an acer aspire 5100 laptop i need to hook up to my tv for a presentation tomorrow. there is no s-video output on it,. how do I hook it up to my tv?

If your TV has RCA jacks on the back or front. Input type. Then you can go to radio shack and get a vga cable to RCA jack converter. That is all you can do. Is the TV a flat screen if yes then you can hook up you pc with a monitor cable like your usine now in your house. Find out the type of TV.. Ask someone to check the tv for a computer port on the back.

the monitor cable (HD15) or DVI cable only transmit the picture.

To get sound you need to plug the audio output from your laptop into the audio input sockets right next to the video socket you are plugged into for the video feed (otherwise you will be plugging your sound into the wrong AV channel). Usually these are standard audio leads, similar to a dvd or camcorder composite cable, it may however be a 3.5mm audio lead,but the former is most likely.

Most laptops use a 3.5 mm headphone socket, so you will need an adapter to connect this to the audio cable, these can be picked up easily at maplins or dixons. after you are connected the sound should come through automatically, (remember to turn up the volume on your laptop)

hope this helps

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.
