How can I connect my laptop to my Vizio TV?

Dave Simmons March 31, 2013

I’m working with an Acer Aspire 5733Z and a Vizio 32″ flat screen with WiFi capability. I have a VGA/HDMI cord and I’ve downloaded an Intel VGA driver. All I’m getting is no signal on my TV screen. I’ve tried FN F5, WIN P and I still cant make it work.

    Since you're using a VGA to HDMI cord, make sure the TV is on the correct HDMI input. Depending on the video card in the laptop, there should be a utility to configure multiple displays. In my can on my Toshiba Qosmio, it has an nVidia chip in it so there is an nVidia icon on the status bar.
