I try to connect my pc with my tv with an hdmi cable 2m but my tv can't read it,so when i turn my tv channel to the hdmi port(tv) which i have connect the cable the screen of the tv is blank.in other words...


Once you made all the proper connection, meaning the hdmi cable from your laptop to your tv, and tunning your laptop to the right hdmi port (like hdmi side, rear1 or 2 however many hdmi input your tv has). Then I believe on acer model, you need to press the FN button and the F5 button at the same time that switches your external video source, Leave the Fn button press and then slowly press the f5 button key until your screen is display on the monitor HDMI. Like said earlier, you need to make sure the tv is tuned to the correct HDMI port.

Cannot connect acer laptop with samsung lcd tv


Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya

Solution:
Generally in all lcd tv you have to select input source in TV menu settings,if TV taking input from AGP,you have to select input as AGP ,if it is composite,select source as composit,if it is RGB select RGB as input by using your TV remote.Then press Fn+F5 in your laptop.
I think it helps.
if you have any problem regarding this issue leave a comment or feedback we were happy to assist you.

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???


Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Connecting Toshiba Lap Top to NEC LCD TV


From user manual (page 68):
Your computer comes with a built-in display panel, but you can also
connect an external display device to an available video port, as
follows:
❖ An external monitor or projector via the RGB (monitor) port
❖ A TV, VCR, or DVD recorder via the S-video (TV-out) port
Before connecting an external monitor or video projector, configure
your computer for the type of device you are connecting. To do this,
refer to the documentation for your operating system and devices

So you have to use an RGB cable or a S-video cable : your cable should be plugged into 15 pin VGA port in your PC and plug it into a correspondent port in your TV.
Try also S- video and select correponding input in your TV set (Both connection type DO NOT carry sound: use your audio connector from PC to TV audio input.)
Configure your extended screen using your manual instruction:
Once you have connected an external display device, you can
choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or
both simultaneously. The quickest way to change the display output
settings is to use the display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order:
❖ Built-in display only
❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously
❖ External monitor only
❖ Built-in display and TV
❖ TV only
