    I connect my Acer 3000 laptop to my Sony Bravia HD TV and it displays for a short time during boot up but then switches back to the little laptop screen. I would like to play NetFlicks movies on my PC and display them on the Bravia with both picture and sound. Is F5 my ticket home with the fifteen pin cable and audio jack?

You should be ably to toggle the output between the LCD and the output jack by pressing the FN and F5 keys.

**note** check your F keys for a picture of a little monitor, as F5 may not be the correct one for your model.**

Hi, could you tell me how/if i can connect my Acer Aspire 5742 laptop to my televison please, Thanks Alix


Hello,

Hopefully your laptop has a VGA output, if you do not know what that is there is a link below:

http://www.computertroublesolver.com/image-files/laptop-vga-connection.jpg

Now check to see if your tv also has a VGA output most modern tv's do now, if it does buy yourself a VGA cable but with both the same connectors at each end then just plug one side into your laptop then the other into the TV.

if not buy yourself a vga to rca cable which look like this: http://networkcable-tester.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/vga-to-rca-cable2.jpg

hopefully your tv does have an rca output.

here is where you can by a VGA to VGA cable quite cheap: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002N2KY54/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_2?pf_rd_p=103612307&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000WTT0EG&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=1K0C1AGYT9XC9CHTQ1KV
here is a VGA to RCA cable : http://www.amazon.co.uk/1-8M-VGA-LEAD-CABLE-LAPTOP/dp/B000P3NZ68/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1310838406&sr=1-1

Hope this helps.

Want to know how to connect acer 3680 to tv


It depends on your TV

If your tv has a Computer VGA connection you can directly connect the VGA connector from the left side of the laptop to the connector on the tv

If there isn't then you could go buy a S-Video to RCA cable at radioshack and connect the S-Video port on the laptop to a video in connection on the TV

For sound you can connect the speaker/headphone jack on the laptop to the tv using a cable either going direct from 8mm to 8mm or from 8mm to RCA...either can be found at radioshack

Let me know if you need anything else!!

What is MAxmedia tv for?


its a VGA to s-video/composite(rca) converter. it allow you to connect a computer to a tv with compatible inputs. Example would be to connect your laptop to a tv to show videos or pictures at a family gathering. you connect a VGA cable to the VGA output on the laptop(usually blue) connected to the MaxMedia TV II Plus, then from there you could connect a set of rca to the tv and view whatever the laptop sees on the tv screen with audio.

another example with a diagram

How do i connect my laptop to my television


You need a VGA to TV cable. If your TV has a component input, you need a VGA to component cable, like the following one:

http://www.amazon.com/Male-3RCA-Component-Video-Cable/dp/B000SJ2TJ8/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1266279733&sr=8-9

The VGA connector is for your laptop (you connect in on the side) and the RCA connector (3 plugs) is for your TV

Check your TV for a green, blue and red connector on back.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Thank you

How can I connect my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872 laptop to my TV?


Check your notebook for "S-Video / TV out" port that has a 7-pin jack instead of a standard 4-pin S-Video jack. Check your laptop before ordering this adapter.

The newer your computer is, the better chance that it comes with either a RCA Composite or SVIDEO connection. Some notebook computers also have video outputs on them. When buying a new computer always look for the words "TV out" or "video out" in the computer description. 

If you only have a VGA connector and don't have an HDTV then your best choice is to buy a newer video card with an S-Video connector. There are other third party solutions out there but the quality is very poor and we do not recommend it. 

The VGA port is the connector that's connected to your PC monitor (the TV like device that came with your computer). This connector is usually only usable for VGA Monitors or HDTV setups. If you have an HDTV this will give you the best image possible. 

If you have an RCA Composite connector on the back of your computer, then you can use that. You may also need to power down your computer and reboot to be able to get the signal. You need an RCA Composite cable that will be long enough to reach from your computer to your PC. Connect the cable to the back of the computer to the back of your TV SET. 

S-Video is superior to that of RCA Composite and will give you a clearer picture. If you have a fairly new TV you should have this connector in the back. You will need to buy an S-VIDEO cable, which you can buy just about anywhere you buy home video products. Connect the cable to your S-Video on the back of your computer and then connect it on the back of your TV

Connecting Dell Inspiron 1501 to TV, Windows Vista


The PC card you have doesnt appear to work with that adaptor. Dell Has its own Svideo / Video output adaptors.

You need a converter not an adaptor. Try looking on Amazon for this: ITV-900 PC to TV Converter
