You'll need to use a USB/HDMI adapter. This link is to one offering (I am not endorsing this product, but I have used their stuff before without problem, and their video intro is very useful).

There are others out there. Beware of outrageous claims, unbelievably low costs, etc.

How to connect acer aspire 5315 to LG led tv


Acer Aspire 5315 doesn't come with an HDMI port. So, you have the following options:
1. Use a VGA Cable to connect the PC to TV if the TV has PC-Input facility
2. Use an S-Video cable to the TV's S-Video-in port if the TV has it

3. Use and S-Video to HDMI converter if the TV has HDMI port
(http://www.amazon.com/Composite-S-video-Audio-HDMI-Converter/dp/B003NS0UUQ)
for audio, you can use 3.5mm to RCA (Red/White) connector to connect to TV's audio-in port.

How do I connect my Laptop Acer 5735 to my TV Sony KDL-40NX700, what kind of connection cables do I require?


If Your TV and Laptop have HDMI Port then you just need a HDMI Cable.
But if you dont have HDMI port. then you need two cables one from video and one for audio.
For Video you either VGA Cable(if you have VGA Port in your TV) or VGA to RCA Cable (Yellow Pin will be for video)
For audio You Need 3.5mm pin to RCA (white and Red for audio).
This pic is of VGA to RCA Cable

How to connect my acer D255E to the TV


According to the limited resources that I could find your only video output is a VGA port. Most newer televisions, predominantly LCD televisions will allow a direct connection via VGA. If your TV does not support VGA, can try using:
VGA to HMDI for HDTV's - Amazon search http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=vga+to+hdmi&x=0&y=0
With these I typically recommend a full force converter over a cable, but often times cables will work. Remember that with a VGA to HDMI cable only, this will only pass video and not audio. You will need separate cables for audio.
If you have a non-HDTV try this: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Adapter-S-Video-Cable-Video/dp/B000Y7T5UU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1315249911&sr=8-1
Use either S-video or RCA connectors to your TV.

I have an Acer aspire m3200. I tried to connect it to my hdtv, i got picture but no sound using the VGA cord, and got nothing using the HDMI cord. Please help


Hello,
Using a vga cable to connect your laptop to a hdtv is very easy but the cable does not transfer the audio signal, you need another cable aswell. You need a 3.5mm jack to jack cable, one end plugs into your headphone socket on your laptop and the other end plugs into the pc audio socket at the back of your tv (usually next to where you plug in the vga plug).

I need to connect acer aspire one to my technika tv can i do this through hdmi ? if so what cale do i need to buy


If your version of Aspire One has an HDMI slot then yes - it will work. Every HDMI cable, even the cheapest one, will work.
But regular Ones have just a VGA connector and only a VGA cable in a VGA slot of the tv will work. If your tv doesn't have that slot then you cannot connect it to the laptop.

Link my acer aspire 592o laptop to my panasonic plasma


Hi,
1. S-Video – This is probably the most commonmethod out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heckand just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll haveto make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there aretwo types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Mostlaptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only hasa 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will bebetter off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better qualitythan S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usuallywon’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if youhave an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interfacewith “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give ahigher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, yourcomputer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to bean HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best qualityby far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you canget a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatiblewith DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last methodthat I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, whichtakes 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
