How do I connect my laptop to my TV

Connecting your laptop or PC to your tv is pretty simple. Just check both your computer and television to find out what connections they have in common. If by some chance you have no connections matching up, you can always buy adapters to make your connection types match.
Once you've passed the stage of physically connecting your computer to your television you'll have to select the correct input on your TV. Just like when using your DVD player, select the input that your computer is connected to using your remote. This input might be called something like AV1 or AV2. You should see this on the television screen.

The following is a list of the different types of cables/connections you will have to choose from with picture quality ranging from highest to lowest :

l am trying to connect the TV to PC and the screen get black and the power indicator light blinks steadly. What should I do?


Hi lammecksawu
Use a VGA (RGB) cable to connect it to the TV from the computer. If you have a desktop computer, you have this cable already connecting the PC to the Screen. Or you can use the HDMI cable.
Turn the poer off, connect the PC and TV with the cable, then power on
From the TV menu select the appropriate input source
From the PC desktop, select the appropriate resolution.
You should be able to get the computer screen display on the TV pretty easily.
Hope this will help you
If it helped, give a rating
Cheers

Connecting computer to tv


This answer is pretty late but all u need is an HDMI cable to make the connection. You can also use a projector cable to make the same connection but plugged in a diferrent port at the back or your TV. If your computer doesn't have an HDMI port u can still use the VGA(projector cable) to make the connection

Connecting laptop audio to tv


i had the same issue with a thinkpad T61 which i was connecting using VGA and a audio jack going straqight from the headphone socket to the back of tv.
I had picture but no sound and i found that once connected the issue could be solved by rotating the projection setting on the laptop(Fn+F7). Basically switched back to laptop only display, then back to laptop and projector display again and teh sound just kicked in. 
i think it's related to the projector setting on the laptop rather than an issue with the tv.
