Question about Televison & Video
I have a samsung lcd tv LA32R7, i want to connect this with my laptop acer aspire 4710. i connected it with a vga cable, but the samsung tv cannot recognice the pc? what should i do?
Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:
If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.

At my mom's at christmas:
1. turn samsung off.
2. enter service mode via remote: mute-1-8-2
3. turn on power
4. you are now in service mode. navigation is clumsy, but use the up/down/left/right/menu/exit buttons, etc.
5. find the field called "Option Byte"
6. Switch PC from "Auto" to "Enable"
7. Get a hug from your mom, you're awesome!
note: be careful messing around in that menu. This simple bit flip that gives you VGA input doesn't erase or delete anything, but many other options may.

My acer 5100 has acer empowering utility programs, you need to go there. the pathway is: Start - All Programs - acer empowering tecnology - acer epresentation management - click on "Projection: XGA (1024 x 768) icon" this should send the screen signal out the VGA jack in the back of the notebook to your TV. Hope this helps

Cables that work are on ebay. Search 'Samsung HDTV PC cable".

How do I connect my acer netbook to my CRT HDTV? I have an adapter, but the image is not appearing on the TV screen. I restated, set it to 800 by 600, but no dice. My adapter has 15 pins. What can I do?

Plug your laptop into the pc, if it doesnt register leave the tv on but change it to the relevent source channel e.g. ext. 1, PC, S-Video. Then restart the laptop. That should work.
