Re: connecting 2 monitor and tv
Multiple monitors overview
On many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video
ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by using
Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature,
with the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable
computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop
computer, it is the monitor attached to the first video out port.
Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use Display in Control
Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors.
Dualview can be used with docked or undocked portable computers.
On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number
on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how
you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or
Apply to view changes.
To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and
then double-click Display.
The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For
example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by
dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between
monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon
positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors.
You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side

It could be the monitor or the graphic/video card.Try taking a cable from the computer to your dvi/hdmi input on TV or another monitor that would tell if the graphic/video card is still working.if you can't then try to connect a laptop to the input of the monitor.monitor usually give up the ghost due to failed capacitors/ dry joints.video cards will if they get overclocked.just some pointers that may help you.
you will need to connect to another monitor or your television to your computer with the vga lead monitor connection
click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system
you should see a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system
when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes or click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to monitors right click select scan for hardware changes
Is the TV set to "VGA"? If the TV does not detect a signal, it won't stay on, only go to a sleep mode. Make sure the cable is securely connected to the TV as well. You may go to the settings and check the power saver settings, but I don't think this has anything to do with it, I only offer it as another avenue to pursue.
First of all, you should not post product keys on the Internet. This key is your Windows certification and should not be public.
Acer has the manuals installed on the desktop for you.
!. Connect all the cables.
Monitor is white or blue and goes in one direction only
Keyboard is flat, USB and goes into a connection that is also flat. This has an up and down so look at the end of the cable to match it.
Mouse: same as the keyboard.
2. Turn on the unit and the monitor
3. The system will prompt you for a USER NAME (anything you want to put here is OK)
4. The system will guide you through the rest.
Once all of the setup prompts are done, you will see your desktop.
To transfer your data from one unit to the other, you need to connect the two. This can be complicated for a novice. You can use an external backup drive designed to do this or use the Windows files and transfer wizard built into the system for this.
Feel free to contact me if any of this does not make sense or you want someone to talk you through it.
If it's a newer tv chances are it will have an SVGA input already for a monitor cable. But for things like watching movies you may have to get another graphics card that has High Definition and the HDMI type of connector. For older tv you will probably need an RF Modulator that can output the computer signal on channel 3 or 4. Or an adaptor that can change the signal and connection to "composite" and Left and Right Audio, or newer "Component" Pr - Pb - Py inputs on a tv monitor.
On a computer mainboard there are usually a number of connecting pins right next to one another called RESET, POWER LED, HD LED etc. The power led often leads to the green LED next your power button to show that the juice is available and on. The cable that leads to the red LED is usually the HD LED which shows that a disk drive is being accessed. Since the red LED is active, one of your disks is probably being accessed and that's where the problem is. Either the disk is damaged, the cable is still not inserted properly or the bios is having problems identifying one of your disk drives.
1) Power the computer off. Take the power cable out. Make sure that you are grounded (have no static charge on your body). Take all of the cables between your mainboard and your disk drives off. 2) Plug in one of your disk drives, reconnect the power cable, switch the power on and watch the monitor. If all goes well you will see that the bios has recognized the disk drive and will simply display a message that the operating system for example isn't available or no harddisk drive is present (if you connected something other than a harddisk drive). 3) repeat this process with the other drives, powering the pc completely off each time and then adding a new disk drive. 4) once you've reached the point where the red LED drive is displayed but no message is available, you've found the culprit that is keeping your pc from booting properly. Hopefully the cable has just been stuck on improperly or the cable is damaged (Check it), rather than you having disk drive damage.
There will be "headers" on the motherboard for some case fans. Look for 2/3 pin connections on the board marked "sysfn" or something similar. Any other fans you will have to fit to a spare Molex power connector from the power supply ... you can buy 2 or 3 way "splitter" cables to give you more power connections from one Molex for this purpose. BTW make sure you connect the cpu fan to the "cpu fn" header !!!!! That one is rather important :-P
Hi Yannick, For the POWER and RESET connectors, it does not matter which way you connect the pairs. Both ways will work. The HDD LED coupler will only work if connected the right way. You can however try it both ways until the LED works. You cannot damage your board if this is connected the wrong way. Hope this solves your problem.
Well, there's a load of things that could cause that problem. Your mainboard could be broken, or your videocard, or maybe some of the cables to your monitor doesn't work as it should, or one of the pins on a conector are bent, or the monitor is broken, etcetera, etcetera. As for the solution, when exactly does your screen start flashing? Immediately when you start up, or only when your OS starts. If that's the case, you should try starting in safe mode. (usually bound to F8). If not, you should try connecting the monitor to another PC, and see wether it works with that one. That at least eliminates some of the possibilities.
