Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
You’ll need two outputs on your laptop that are typically found on most: the first is a small round yellow socket usually found on the back of your laptop, which is the S-video socket. The other socket you need is either a line out (unlikely) or headphones socket (more likely). You also need a TV with the correct inputs, which will ultimately decide which cables you need
First, you need two separate cables for video and audio: S-video to S-video...and Stereo 3.5mm plug to 2x RCA plugs..Both cables are two metres long and longer cables are also available..Your TV will require either equivalent S-video and RCA audio inputs or a SCART socket - if it only has the latter, you’ll also need a SCART adapter
Once done, plug them all in and switch your TV on, switching to the A/V channel. If nothing appears, open the Display Properties Control Panel, switch to the Settings tab and click Advanced. Look for a Display tab or something similar where you’re able to switch on the S-video port to enable the laptop’s display to route through the TV. Finally, when watching DVD movies (you’ll need a DVD player to do so), look for the option to run them full screen, so you get the best possible picture from your TV.
