How to Hook Up a Laptop to a LCD TV by an adapter?

First of all check out does both the lcd tv and laptop both have adapter input socket This is the most important step, as it will allow you to buy the right equipment. In the unlikely event that your LCD TV lacks any of the inputs above, purchase an adapter that takes one of the aforementioned output signals and converts it to a component video or composite video input that your TV will accept. Composite video is the most basic connection and is a simple yellow jack, much like you'd use to connect a DVD player. Component video is three separate plugs: a red, a blue and a green. Both methods require separate audio connection. Turn on your devices. Once you've made the connections, turn devices on. Switch your TV to the input mode that corresponds with the input you used to connect your laptop, and you should now view your laptop on your LCD TV. This will help.Good luck.

and plug the red and white cords to your auxiliary input from your Bush model (its located to the back of you home theater and writes aux) then by pressing the aux button you should hear volume from your tv

connect tv to cable box with hdmi lead


You will need an HDMI to DVI cable which are available in the shops, even ASDA has one but I don't know how good it is. Or you can buy an adapter that will plug into one of the ends of the HDMI cable and then plug into the DVI socket at the back of the TV. The DVI input is video only so you will need audio leads for sound. These will connect from the output of your source, say, blue ray or sky HD (Left and right audio sockets ) to the audio L/R at the back left of the TV (on the block next to the three component video connections and s-video connections)

got an old tv for free with aerial socket. can I input my sons wii into it?


Hi, yes you can, you will have to go to Wal-Mart or Radio Shack and buy a RF adapter and it will allow you to plug the Wii into that and then plug it into the antenna socket on the T.V.

Notebook Connection to TV


Check to see if your TV has a VGA or DVI input. If it does then buy a DVI to USB adapter or VGA to USB adapter. Each of the adapters cost around $30-60 US Dollars depending on the quality. Then use male-to-male VGA or DVI wire from TV to adapter, then adapter to PC. Good Luck.
