Want to use TV as monitor for laptop


There is no way to hook the TV to the laptop. You can hook the laptop to the TV but not the other way around. It is done with a VGA monitor cord. The same one that you connect to your regular monitor. Your TV will have a plug labeled VGA.

Can you hook the aspire one to a hd tv and use that for your moni


This is actually a really commonly asked question to me by friends.
Short answer, yes.
Most TV's have what is known as a VGA input on the back and this looks like a small trapezoid with a bunch of holes in a three row pattern. If you have ever set up a cord from a monitor to a desktop, the process is identical. Getting a double sided VGA cord (Almost always colored blue" with two male sides (meaning that it has the pins inside the little metal piece) and plug it into the back of your television. Next, plug the other end into your laptop, assuming it has a VGA output, and power on both pieces of equipment. Make sure that your TV's input is set to VGA or computer and that your computer is set to transmit a signal, typically done by hitting "FN" F5. Now both screens which transmit the same image.
I am not very knowledgeable about your specific laptop, but you may even have an HDMI port, which means you can just buy an HDMI cord and plug it into both systems.
I hope this was helpful and apologize if it is not.

Acer 5515 on external monitor


Get an VGA cable and connect your external monitor to your laptop via a VGA port that is usually used for digital projectors. In this VGA port, you can initiate dual monitors.

Then look at your keyboard and look an icon in your function keys (F1 to F12) that looks like a pair of an LCD and a TV like this {LCD icon/ TV icon}. In most laptop keyboards, this is located in F4.

When found, and with the external monitor hooked to the laptop via VGA port using a VGA cable, press and hold down the FN key and press the function key where the icons described above is located. Example, FN + F4 to toggle a single and a dual monitor.

Give it a try.

Connecting computer to tv


Does the TV have a VGA in?  If yes then hook the VGA cord from the PC to the TV VGA port, then change the source on your TV until you see your PC.  If the signal doesn't come through and you know what source it should be on then try hitting the fn key and F8 which will force it to the TV.  If that doesn't work with the VGA still plugged in restart the computer and it should pick up.

How to hook pc to hdtv


first, check if your vga card does have a sli-capable(it's a feature for hdtv compatibility) chip once you've found out that it has that technology, you'll need a dvi cord usually included in the box when you bought a vga card it's a circle-shaped with small holes in it then plug it in the dvi slot found in vga card then to your hdtv i'm not sure where can you insert it see the instructions of your tv

S-video


Most tv's aren't compatible, if it has a vga port then it should be, and on some, you need drivers in order for the tv to be used as a monitor. Keep in mind that tv's aren't designed to be computer monitors, and if compatible, often don't get the resolution desired or expected. This is especially true with models that are compatible that use the s-vid cable for the connection. So, if the tv doesn't work simply by plugging it in with the s-vid cable, then look for drivers for the tv at the manufacturer's web site. If none are available, then the tv is not compatible as a monitor. While at the manufacturer's site, you might also check the compatibility.
