Hi,

have you already read the manual of your laptop if there is a description about this?

i have been through the manual, there is nothing in there about this.
its a pretty poor excuse for a manual to be honest

thanks

Acer.

I am not able to have a look at the word documents you attached, so this is somewhat generic:
In case your laptop has VGA (and your TV also), then you can use a VGA cable for the picture. For audio, you need an additional cable from the Line-Out (or Earphones) connector to some Audio-in connector on the TV. You may need an adapter from 3.5mm to RCA or something like that. There are also cables with RCA and 3.5mm jacks available.

In case TV and Laptop are equipped with HDMI connectors, a HDMI cable will feed both, audio and video to the TV.

All you need is an HDMI cable and the resolution from your laptop to the TV set for 720p or preferably to 1080p.
