Re: Have acer aspire netbook. what cable do I need to...
Do you want to connect an external LCD screen to your Acer laptop?
The Acer will have a blue 15pin Dsub female video connector. The standard 15pin monitor video cable will connect to the Acer's video port.

Turn the monitor on. Turn the netbook on.
If there is no image shown on the external VGA monitor, press and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
(The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)
No image on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down once more, and tap again on the F5 key.
Problem is internal in netbook. Probably graphics chipset soldered to the motherboard.
Image shows on external monitor?
Problem is with Video Cable or laptop LCD screen.
MOST of the time it's the Video Cable.
The Video Cable connects to the motherboard, in an area under the Keyboard. It then routes up under the left Hinge, and into the Display Panel.
Inside the Display Panel it then connects to the LCD screen.
With frequent opening and closing of the netbook, the Video Cable can be pulled on. This can cause damage to the Video Cable.
(Stretched/broken wires inside the sheath of the cable)
And/or it can cause the connection at the motherboard to be loose, and/or at the LCD screen.
What you do need to know however, is if the LCD screen from the older Aspire One netbook, will work in the 'other' one.
A newer model of Aspire One may Not have the same specifications of it's LCD screen, as one in per se, an older Aspire One.
The screen size may be comparable, the finish also. (Glossy or Matte) But the voltage requirements, signal requirements, and other specs may be different. This means also that the Video Cable will be different.
What to do? You're going to have to remove the LCD screen out of the older Aspire One, and out of the 'other' Aspire One, and look at the information on the back of the LCD screens.
Look at the manufacturer, and model number. Also of course, it will only take a few seconds to see if the Video Cables are compatible. If they aren't, it isn't worth going any further.
[ In looking from a brief search, it seems all Aspire One laptop/mini's use a 40-pin video cable connector,
In order to connect your netbook to lcd tv your need a VGA or a HDMI cable( if your laptop has a hdmi port). Once you connect the netbook with the lcd tv you nned to use you tv remote to choose the input to pc or pc1 or HDMI depending the lcd tv. if you any futher questions please feel to ask.
