Good day. I have an Acer Aspire 5250 series laptop that was walked on which broke the screen. The only video output I can see is a VGA plug. Is there any way to connect this to maybe a TV using adapters? It's a good running computer so I thought I could use it for a media PC, movies, etc. Don't need to connect to HDMI. I have an older Hitachi rear projection HD tv with S-Video and Component inputs.
Are they component inputs or composite inputs? Component will be three RCA jacks that are red, blue and green for the video. Composite will be one RCA jack that is yellow for the video.
If it is only composite, then your TV likely will only support 480i TV resolutions (approximately 640x480 in computer terms). For the video output on the TV will not be that great. If you are only using it as a media PC (i.e. playing movies and other videos), then that might be OK.
If it does support component, then it could support HD TV resolutions, which could then make it more useful for more tradition "computer stuff".
