First of all you will need an SVGA monitor cable (male-male) like this one on Amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/2M-SVGA-Monitor-Cable-MALE/dp/B000J1J790

Then plug it into your laptop and TV. On the Acer you may also have to press the fuction key and f4 or f5 (this changes which monitor displays the computers output)

Hope this was helpful

When i shut my laptop the tv i use as my monitor goes blank.


Right click the power icon in the system tray (should look like a little plug with a lightning bolt on it.)  Click on "adjust power properties."  Click on the "advanced" tab, then where it says, "When I close the lid of my portable computer," select "Do Nothing."

I have an acer 5335 aspire laptop and tried to connect it to a 127cm lg plasma via vga cable. I changed the resolution on the laptop and tried using Fn F5 key however no result.


Does ur video card support tv out?
If it does, u cannot use ur screen AND a tv at the same time.It's one or the other. Go to the display options and select the tv out option for ur vid card. Ur screen will go black and the tv will then have ur desktop.

How do i set my acer travel mate 2312lm to 1440 by 900 pixel so i can work my lcd tv


**Your Laptop has VGA port for connecting external monitors :

Laptop Video Specs :

Laptop's Max Resolution1024 x 768
Integrated Video card : SiS Mirage M661MX

NOTE : If LCDTV does not have a VGA port, you will not be able to use it a external monitor.

Steps :
1. Connect Laptop to LCDTV using a VGA Cable
2. Right-click on your desktop and select "Properties." (or click on start > Control Panel > Display)
3. A new window displaying several tabs will appear. Select the tab called "Settings."
4. You will see boxes with numbers on the middle, in your case 1 and 2 will be present.

5. Click on 2 and click on box beside "Extend my windows Desktop onto this monitor" then choose the resolution that you like (1440 by 900) then click on apply. If 1440 by 900 is not available, choose the closest under 1440 by 900. Don't go over 1440 by 900 since that is the max value that will work on you LCD TV.

6. After clicking on Apply, the display should be present on the LCD TV. (The disply is an extended desktop so you will not see the start button nor the taskbar on the LCD TV. but it should have the same wallpaper. You can Drag the windows to the LCDTV. This will serve as an extension of you desktop. (Ex : You can watch movie on the LCDTV and you can do documents on the laptop's screen at the same time).

If you TV has a DVI input on it then you can.

Basically this means that your TV has the same connector that your computer LCD is currently connected to on the computer tower.
