Try toggling he display. You could do this by using a key comibination in your laptop. Normally it would be Fn + F7 or F8.

Acer Aspire screen goes black every few minutes only when connected to tv


That may be because you have connected the incorrect VGA port to the TV, remember you need a VGA card installed on you PC with the correct cables VGA to RCA cables to get this right.

I am trying to connect an acer one notebook to a beko 32" flatscreen and everytime i plug the vga lead in the laptop screen goes black an the tv says no signal,,what am i doing wrong??


It could be a no. of things:

- Wrong input selected via the TV
- The VGA input on the TV is turned off
- Problem with the VGA cord
- Problem with either VGA port

there the basics, if there all great and it's still no working, try setting your Computer display to EXTEND rather then projector only, then play around with your graphic output settings.

UPDATE all your Drivers and check all your cables. PLUG IN YOUR LAPTOP, yes it will make a difference to the way the graphics card operates.

Hope this helps.

Want to connect Laptop to LG LCD TV. Can not get picture on TV Screen only sound. What 'F' key needs to be used to activate VGA output ?


The "F" key you need is different depending on the laptop you have. Some have a plain box with a vertical line either side of it, others have a box with "LCD" in it then a / and another, plain, box with an arrow coming out of it. Any other designs for the F key logo will be varients of these two.
Remember to hold the function key when pressing the screen key, the monitor on the laptop will usually go blank (depending on the model) then the tv will start a few seconds later.
You may need to change desktop resolution to make the picture the correct size on your TV.
Good luck!

Try pushing the FN button, next to the left CTRL button, and then hit the F5 key at the top. By the number of times you hit the F5 button, you are telling the computer to display on its lcd screen, on the monitor (TV), both, or neither.

Good luck!

I dont believe that you can hook that model up to a TV you have to have a certin video output and it also would depend on your tv as well. But i am about 100% sure that series does not have the output you need you usally can connect via S-cable
