So here's a quick walk-through of all the methods that I know (if you know any more, please comment) to connect a laptop or PC to your TV:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You'll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC's are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won't find a VGA port on regular TV's though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with "digital" being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here's a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Hope this helps someone! If you have any other ideas or suggestions, please feel free to comment!!! Thanks!

Make sure TV is set to connecting input port, like VGA or S-Video. "New Display" should appear on laptop.

I HAVE CONNECTED MY ACER ASPIRE PC TO MY SAMSUNG LCDTV USING A VGA CABLE , THE PICTURE IS THERE , BUT I CANT GET ANY SOUND ?


The VGA cable only supplies video data to the LCD TV. Connect a sound cable from the audio out from the Acer PC to the audio input on the LCD TV to get sound from the LCD TV's speakers.

I can't get my Acer 5610 Laptop to connect to my LG LCD TV. It just says no signal.... I am using a 15 Pin VGA Cable.


Once connected the LCD press Fn + F8 to switch the monitors. You cannot use both the screens at the same time.
If pressing Fn and F8 does not help Try other combinations of function keys with Fn

I cant get into my internet settings !acer aspire


I know nothing about Linux and had the same problem. I found this on another site as I have been searching for an answer. Just finished as instructed and it has worked. Just in case I renamed the folder rather than deleting it! "Follow this then restart and everything should come back to normal. It took me 3 minutes and worked fine.

This is to find and delete the networking folder (which is causing the problem):

1. From the regular Aspire One options page, go to the Files panel
2. Click on the triangle to see more icons
3. Click on MyFiles, which opens a file manager window.
4. In the menu bar, select View->Hidden files, to show a tick in the box. You should be in the "My Disk:///" directory.
5. Scroll down until you find folder "gconf" and then click on that
6. Find folder "system" and click on that
7. You should now see folder "networking" listed as one of the folders.
8. DELETE IT! (Right click on the networking folder, and select option delete.)

I just restarted from here and the icon re appeared in bottom right the menu bar, I just clicked on it to set it up with my wifi signal and it did the rest itself. " Have fun and dont panic!
