Thanks,

 

I have the vga and hdmi cables and converter and I have tested them on other equipment and know they are OK. I don't understnad how to extend the netbook to the tv. I've tried using the function key and the F5 key and it does not extend to the tv. .

Is your tv set to the correct settings ? ...ie,have you changed the input source to whatever the input is... VGA/HDMI/S-Video etc ?

One of my machines is an Acer D250...I believe I just connected up via the vga port and connected into the relevant tv port...then set the tv to the right input via the tv settings under "source" or whatever your remote says for input settings........if you`re having trouble with getting the external display...try going to control panel...hardware and sound...display...under this you should see connect to an external display...also further advice here from google...

edit to add...I don`t recall having to go through any of the above but my D250 was used prior to my ownership so maybe it had been pre-set...good luck.
