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

If your tv has a VGA socket suitable for a computer then all you require is to set your laptop resolution to suit your tv screen and a VGA plug to plug lead and you're watching video's.

Since we've owned our Samsung PN58A550 Plasma (less than 2 years) it has always put out excessive heat. So much that we can only watch it for 2 hours without the room becoming unbearably hot, and that is...


This is very normal. There is a joke out that Plasma screens are an excellent source of heat in the winter. Yes this is the very reason they started making LCD screens they dont heat up like plasma screens. Keep in mind your plasma screen has a gas in it that is ignited or lit by very high voltage. The only thing to do would be to sale theTV and replace it with the same size LCD screen TV. If you need to know the diffrence from a plasma screen and a LCD. The Plasma TV has a hard glass surface when you touch it. An LCD has a soft plastic screen like the one on your laptop computer. Never Touch a Plasma TV when its on.

I want to connect my acer aspire 5735 to my tv , how ?


you need a VGA connector and your tv would have to have a VGA input most newer ones do your laptop may have A SVIDEO connection which you can buy an svideo to RCA video and connect that way which is how i connect my laptop to my tv its an acer 5520 5912 then i use audio an audio out from head phone jack into rca audio ports for the sound .... but i dont recomend doing it for things such as websurfing because its almost impossible to read the text on the screen its only good for watching movies or webcams or something like that videos play really good alot better than your laptops LCD screen but text like i said is really blurry hard to read it

I have an acer aspire 5515 and im trying to hook it to a flat screen Regza tv i am using a svga monitor cable and it still isnt working


Somewhere on your computer's keyboard, you have a 'fn' key. Usually, this key is in the lower left corner of the keyboard. This key will need to be depressed simultaneously with another key on the keyboard that should have two pictures of monitors seperated by a '/' mark.

When you depress these two keys simultaneously, the computer switches from the output on the laptop screen to the output on the vga port.

Additionally, you will have to configure your TV to receive the signal from the svga port. Different TV's do this diffrerently, so I'm not sure exactly how you need to do it on yours.

Lastly, the sound does not follow this connection. So, while you are enjoying the use of the TV screen for viewing whatever on your laptop, if you are watching a movie or similar activity, you will not hear very much. Laptops are not designed to fill a room with sound.

good luck

SPLIT SCREEN ON 50'' PLASMA


If you talking about on one screen, you cant. BUT you can buy a TV card for your computer so that it will have a built in TV. so you can theoretically have split screen TV and computer. But what your thinking off only works on 2 or more player games consoles
