Thanks for your reply but I am afraid the FN + F5 plan does not work. The VGA cable is a new one but should I try an alternative? Are they all the same or should I look out for a particular type?
Hi, this is Gill's son Nick.
I've tried the above. There is no LCD option on the netbook model that we have. There is one called Monitor. I've tried this. The TV initially still didn't recognise it, but I've forced an option on the TV so that it at least shows something.
I've set the output to projector, which seems to be the highest resolution and largest screen size available, but it is still not full screen on the TV. Also, there is no sound and the picture on the TV lags quite a bit.
The netbook model is Aspire One 533.
The VGA cable isn't very tightly secured into the netbook as there is nothing to screw the cable into, but I don't think it's a slightly loose connection that's the issue.
Thanks - Nick
Thanks, that just opened up the same resolution adjusting screen that I had been using though. It's on the maximum that I could work out, which is sending the signal to a projector, which is the majority of the TV screen but not all of it. Every time I press Fn and F5 the TV says "unsupported source, adjust your pc output", though it still shows the picture. The TV blocked the picture entirely until I forced through the signal on the tv instead of leaving it at the default position of only letting you select the option when it recognises the source.
There is still no sound except for that out of the netbook itself. This is probably the biggest issue as we can probably live with a slightly smaller screen if need be.
Unfortunately although that gets rid of the note on the tv saying that it's an unsupported source, it now only uses a fraction of the screen, and there's still no sound.
