Acer notebook VGA problem

My notebook when connected up to an LCD TV via a VGA cable when booting up displays the Windows desktop but then goes off and the TV says 'no PC input' . Changing the resolution and toggling between the two displays has no effect on the TV. Any ideas please ?

    My notebook is an Acer Aspire 1522 running Win XP. I can toggle between screens OK but the TV screen says 'no PC input' except when booting up when it displays the Windows desktop correctly. Possibly a BIOS problem.

    Thanks for your help.

Not sure about your model as the header is Dell D600 and you mention Acer but the solution is probably the same. You need to enable the 2nd display - I'm assuming you are running XP. Go to display settings -easiest way is to Right click on the desktop, bringing the display menu and Left click on Properties (bottom entry). Then click on Settings and you should see 2 screens and you will need to enable the 2nd monitor and set up how to display on it. Additionally there is a setting in the BIOS that enables both display outputs.

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.

I recently purchased a ASUS K60 Notebook from best buy. I am using Windows 7. I am trying to hook it up to my 42" inch LCD tv via a VGA cable. My problem is that when I do all I am getting is my Desktop...


Since you are using a laptop to connect to an extended monitor, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that both the laptop and TV are on.
  2. Connect the VGA cable from the laptop to the TV.
  3. Then hold down the FN key and the function key with the TV/Monitor icon like the one below to switch to dual monitor display mode.

Connecting laptop to hd tv


IMake sure that you have the laptop for an VGA OUTPUT. When you toggle between the function keys. When your laptop LCD goes out it is in VGA OUT mode....when you toggle again it should be in LCD/VGA OUT (both TV and laptop should display). You need to set the TV to VGA mode as well...otherwise you might not get an output. If you still have a problem then test on a regular monitor to see if you are getting an output to the monitor

IF THIS HELPS PLEASE VOTE.....GOOD LUCK AND THANKS..

I have connected my old dell laptop to this TV with VGA cable and audio cable and it worked with no problem. Have new Acer Aspire one netbook- connected to computer with same cables - can see windows...


First, you want to make sure the laptop's internal/external display mode is set properly. On Acer netbooks, this is usually changed by holding the "Fn" key, and pressing "F5". Either the TV or the computer display should flicker when you do this. There are 3 modes:

1 Computer only
2 TV Only
3 Computer and TV

If changing between thos emodes doens't work, continue on.


I am going to assume you are running Windows XP. Please correct me if I am wrong.

To display your desktop on an external monitor, you'll need to change/check some settings. Your netbook is most likely attempting to set it's display settings automatically, but it is expecting a computer display, not a television, so the resolutions and refresh rates are conflicting. That's why it will only display on one and not the other. Before Windows loads, the netbook is using a very low resolution,so it displays on the TV. Once Windows loads, it switches to some non-standard resolution that your TV cannot display and defaults back to your netbook screen.

The solution is to find a resolution that your television will display:

1.Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.

2.In the DisplayProperties dialog box, click the Settings tab.

3.Click the Display list and select your external monitor (..the TV. It will most likely be display #2).

4.Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor option.

5.Select 640x480 in the "Screen Reolution" section for Display #2.

6.Click Apply or OK.

Note: If you see the background change on your television, mmove your mous there to make sure it's working. If it DOES work, go back to the "Screen resolution" section for Display #2 and find the highest resolution your television will display

"No signal detected" when LCD connected with DVI-D Cable


Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.

Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.

1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card

Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary

2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable

At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display

3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard

set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel

If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )

At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop

If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port



No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )

If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.

If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"

Your LCD Display may need replacement

Try this:
Start -> Control Panel ->Display

Select the settings-tab

Check the "Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor"

Apply

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)
