My screen on my acer aspire one d255 is cracked and it has turned completly white with some black in the corners. I was told that I would be able to connect it to a tv in order for me to see the screen...


Yes, it is possible to hook your laptop up to a tv or monitor. Your laptop has a VGA adapter which can be easily found on pc monitors, however it is less readily found on tv's so you will have to find a VGA to A/V converter. If you are lucky then your tv will have a VGA input.Here is a link to a new screen just in case
Good luck.

Screen is flickering like a TV


Hi!

You can try to reinstall the driver of your Video Card. Navigate to the manufacturer's website, go to Support or Driver Downloads and enter the exact model of your laptop then download the latest driver. Reinstall the driver and reboot the computer. Check if that works. If that didn't help, it is the LCD's hardware failure. Checking the LCD's internal connectors require the help of a certified hardware or laptop technician. You can also try to ask suggestions from the manufacturer support group.

Best Regards

How to drag the icons from my computer to the TV screen after I enable multiple monitors option


If you want to make your TV as the main screen then you need to inter-change the screens only. You can easily do that by right clicking on the desktop and going into the graphics software you are using and inter change the screen. Make 1 as 2 and 2 as 1. :-)

I have a s-video output and hooked it up though a cable to the yellow rca on the back of the tv. how do i get that to work and watch the computer screen on tv


1. This depends on the ports on your laptop and tv - if you have a vga port on your laptop then connect a cable to that and go to either the RGB or VGA on your TV. You can also get RGB to scart conectors so ther eare a lot of options! try your local Maplins for the cable (or look on eBay). Do a google image search to identify the connectors you have.

2. High-definition TV sets have several options of input ports and cable connections available. It's even possible to connect a computer to most HDTVs to get its picture quality. If your laptop computer is designed so it can plug into a standard computer monitor, you can easily plug it into an HDTV set, and you may have a number of options to connect it with. You must connect the video and audio separately in most cases. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Laptop computer
  • HDTV set
  • Audio and video cables
  1. Step 1 Check the output ports on your laptop computer. There are three types of ports that can work with this connection: S-video (a circular port with pins in the middle), VGA (a square/trapezoid like port with pins in the middle and two screw pins on the sides) and DVI (a longer version of VGA).
  2. Step 2 Compare the ports on your computer with the input ports on your HDTV. DVI has the best quality, but not all TV sets will have these. Most HDTVs will have VGA and S-video (VGA has the best quality).
  3. Step 3 Connect the computer's output to the TV using the best cable connection that you have.
  4. Step 4 Connect the laptop's audio output to the TV's audio input that works with the video. In most cases, this requires a stereo-to-RCA cable, which has the single rounded plug with two black bands at one end and the red and white RCA plugs at the other.
  5. Step 5 Turn on the laptop and the computer and tune the TV to the correct input channel. Tune it to "Computer" only if you used the VGA connection; if you used S-video, tune the TV to that input channel.

Need to know how to display the Laptop screen onto my Tv please?


you either need a Tv-Out card or an adapterTV Out box to connect the Laptop to the TV. Optionally if your Tv has a SCart connector(Google for what that means), you could connect the Laptop directly to the TV, instead of the adapter.

Connecting Laptop to LCD


VGA cable doesn't carry any audio: use your audio output from PC into TV audio Input (standard RCA).
You need to configure your Display Properties to manage TV screen to get an effective connection.
Either you have a generic Video Grafic Driver add on (I'm using Intel Graphic accelerator) on your display properties either you are using a specific (NVIDIA) driver for your video card.
To check go to CP/ Display, settings Tab and in advanced you should be able to check your choice (if you don't want to go to user manual.
You can also (in CP/ Display, Settings tab configure TV as a monitor and select your option accordingly: use screen resolution on screen # 2 not over native resolution of your VIZIO screen (1080 x 960?) and be sure to use all the parameters as TV can accept.
As soon as TV is configured as per resolution and refresh etc..
check the presentation function on your PC: it's normally a FN key showing a screen icon on key top (on my Acer travelmate is FN + F5) on aspire may be it's FN + F4.
This function key will circle between: PC mail screen -> External screen (as you configured on Display settings) -> both screen.

Having prob connecting my laptop to a TV via hdmi


try playing around a bit with the display settings, there are not many laptops that are setup to automatically adjust to the dual screen setup with an lcd tv. Also, iv found that Not using the lcd as a duplicate of the main screen is a good idea, set it up as a separate screen...if you know what i mean, if you do it right you will see only yourbackground on the tv and no start menu bar or icons.... In this configuration you can set the resolution to the max for the best quality possible for your television.
