Reasons could be:
1. BIOS battery is dead.
2. RAM chip has loosen up in the slot.

Open the CPU, and look for BIOS cell (it would look like a quarter coin). Try replacing that. Also check for RAM; take it out clean it with a dry cloth, blow the slot with dry air to take out dust particles and place it firmly back into the slot.

Hope this would kick start your PC again.

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).

Can not start acer veriton 5600g with ati 1650 pro agp card ? The bios doesn't seem to recognise the card and it beeps when i disconnect the onboard vga. Any help will be appreciated... thanks


How did you disconnect the onboard VGA?
The onboard VGA device must be disabled in the BIOS and the ATI graphics card inserted in the computer.
When you bootup it should default to a standard Windows VGA configuration, then install the ATI video driver o you can get high resolution graphics.

Acer aspire 3610 can i use my laptop to connect to lcd tv i have vga output


So if there is not a vga input connection on your lcd tv which most do. You can get a vga to dvi cable adapter in conjunction with a dvi to hdmi conversion cable. Note that you may have to change your resolution settings in order to veiw computer images on your lcd t.v. If your laptop has an svideo output you can also connect this way but the image quality will be greatly reduced.

How do i set my acer travel mate 2312lm to 1440 by 900 pixel so i can work my lcd tv


**Your Laptop has VGA port for connecting external monitors :

Laptop Video Specs :

Laptop's Max Resolution1024 x 768
Integrated Video card : SiS Mirage M661MX

NOTE : If LCDTV does not have a VGA port, you will not be able to use it a external monitor.

Steps :
1. Connect Laptop to LCDTV using a VGA Cable
2. Right-click on your desktop and select "Properties." (or click on start > Control Panel > Display)
3. A new window displaying several tabs will appear. Select the tab called "Settings."
4. You will see boxes with numbers on the middle, in your case 1 and 2 will be present.

5. Click on 2 and click on box beside "Extend my windows Desktop onto this monitor" then choose the resolution that you like (1440 by 900) then click on apply. If 1440 by 900 is not available, choose the closest under 1440 by 900. Don't go over 1440 by 900 since that is the max value that will work on you LCD TV.

6. After clicking on Apply, the display should be present on the LCD TV. (The disply is an extended desktop so you will not see the start button nor the taskbar on the LCD TV. but it should have the same wallpaper. You can Drag the windows to the LCDTV. This will serve as an extension of you desktop. (Ex : You can watch movie on the LCDTV and you can do documents on the laptop's screen at the same time).
