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.

Please help me connect my acer A1-830 to a tv


If your TV has a VGA input, connect a VGA lead from your laptop into your TV. Then audio to your stereo is favourite.
If it has HDMI and your laptop has the same, connect them together, if not check the laptop connector and TV connector and do some shopping for a lead/convertor.

I'm trying to connect my Sony TV with my Dell laptop using a VGA cord. The picture on the TV has a blue ting to it. I hooked it up the first night & it worked fine, then the next day it was tinted...


Hi there,

You might need to replace the cables as the cable you are using has some disconnected points. The pins of a vga cable represents different color signals, if there is a disconnect, the pictures will not display with a complete video 256 colors.

Hope this helps.

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.

You should be able to connect using vga if the TV has a vga input. Once it is hooked up you can toggle the display using the key combination fn+f5.

I have an acer aspire 5100 laptop i need to hook up to my tv for a presentation tomorrow. there is no s-video output on it,. how do I hook it up to my tv?


If your TV has RCA jacks on the back or front. Input type. Then you can go to radio shack and get a vga cable to RCA jack converter. That is all you can do. Is the TV a flat screen if yes then you can hook up you pc with a monitor cable like your usine now in your house. Find out the type of TV.. Ask someone to check the tv for a computer port on the back.
