Can i plug a desktop monitor to a lap top? - Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook


Answers :

Yes, if you have a video connector on the back of your laptop. Most often you will find a VGA type connector, which will work with most monitors and LCD's. The connection will look like this.

A quick google search showed that your monitor has the following I/O Ports: external display (VGA) port,\015\012S-video/TV-out (NTSC/PAL) port, either of these ports can be used to connect an external display.

In the case of a desktop monitor you will be recommended to use the VGA port (the blue one), but you can also use the S-video out provided you have the proper connectors.

for the VGA port: You may find that the port will not fit the adapter on the end of your monitor cable, in this case you must buy a female to female adapater that will allow you to connect the two together. I recommend bringing your laptop into radioshack and simply purchasing the adapter there to ensure you get the proper adapter, but you can just as easily purchase it online.

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge. Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger


Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized too ... Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
