Question about Acer Aspire 3100-1405 Notebook

1 Answer

Limited monitor resolutions

I recently purchased a samsung 19" widescreen LCDT HD Ready tv, with a VGA cable connecter at the back.

I tested it out, connected my laptop to the tv, ran perfectly, as both a extended monitor and as the normal monitor.

After i while i wanted to watch sky on the new tv, so i removed the VGA cable from my laptop.
i looked back at my laptop and it now only has two resolutions available
1024 by 768
800 by 600
Those are the only two dimensions available, but before, i had several different options.
Im currently running the laptop on vista, and i want to set it back to the normal resolutions i had.

Advice?

By plugging into the tv you created an additional monitor profile. You will need to go to the resolution page and open the advanced button, from here set the monitor to the laptop screen versus the vga tv. There is also a troubleshoot button that can be useful.

Struggling to connect my Goodmans Freeview+ HD recorder (HDMI output) to either the DVI (female) or VGA (female) input of my Samsung LE27T61B TV which is HD ready with a resolution of 1366 x 768.


They are different protocols. You have to have a converter than changes the protocol (protocol is like a language...it needs to be translated to a different language). They are available from eBay or amazon but they don't always work very well. Best thing to do is get a unit with the correct connections.

How to connect my laptop to TV


Hello
To connect your TV with laptop, you have to buy one VGA to VGA connector cable. Connect this cable to computers' VGA out ot TVs VGA in. Now you have set the computer to TV, in case of video only.

Trying to connect laptop to Samsung HD LCD TV using VGA cable.


I had the same problem with my Samsung series 6 32" Lcd. After many hours of trying different settings and banging my head on the wall I found the solution. What the problem is your VGA cable not supporting the high resilotion of your Samsung TV. The simple solution is to buy a new VGA cable that supports HD. Take a look at this site you need something like this one! Hope this helps.....C

Connecting Laptop to LCD


It might have something to do with wether the VGA cable has all pins connected.
I think some cables don't have all 15-pins wired.
As soon my LCD TV works I will post the outcome.
