On the side of our note book there will be a port that looks like this.

there also could be a port that looks like this

you will need to purchase a cable that will connect from the laptop (see above ports) to the tv. most newer tv's come with dvi and hdmi if you notebook is newer it may have the dvi port which makes things easy. if this is that case you need a dvi to hdmi cable which can be found at and radio shack or future shop.

once connected you enable the tv as your default monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties in the menu. Once there you click on the settings tab and enable the monitor/tv there. hope this helps let me know if you have a vga port and i can give you some options for connecting to the tv with that.

Can I get slide show on multimedia to keep on repeating on vivo led 42 tv

You can convert it to MP4 in the "Save As" menu in PowerPoint and then burn it to DVD. I used ConvertX to make mine, no menu with one title, start presentation when disc is inserted, repeat from beginning when over.

How do I use a jump drive to display a power point presentation on my TV?

It means it is only for putting new firmware onto the tv. You won't be able to load anything through this USB port. The TV is looking for a specific filename to run and even if you named your powerpoint presentation the right name, the TV will not be able to display it.
Your next best option is to get a DVD player that has a USB port for MEDIA and load a slideshow of IMAGES. You'll have to export your PowerPoint as images first (obviously).

In addition to setting your TV to PC input, you have to set your PC to TV output, so to speak.
This is done through your display settings.
In windows, go to the control panel, and then 'appearance and personalization' or 'display' or something like that. That part depends on what operating system you're running. If you want to let me know which one, I'll advise you further.

Play powerpoint on tv

Hi, have a look at this, it is for burning to dvd, btu it might just do.
When you burn to an SD card it needs to be for the correct format of your tv and there are so many different formats.
But take a look anyway.

I hope this helps.

TV wont detect HDMI Devices except a pc.

Something is wrong whith the HDMI jack it's self, or the electronic switching is not sensing a signal is present. In either case the board that has the HDMI jack you are using needs to be replaced. Most all these boards are double printed, Multi-layered or both which prevents replacing the jack it's self. I do have a question though, do you only have on HDMI jack on the unit or do you have another one available.

Show Microsoft Power point on Sharp Aquos hdtv

try to right click the desktop and choose graphics options, you will have to select the correct output for your setup. i.e. laptop to monitor, etc etc see if that works,...sounds like you have a connection, you will have to play with these settings until it pops up. worked with a similar scenario, sometimes you have to do stufff twice and it works on the second time not the first, electronics are weird.
keep changing the settings in the graphics options until it comes up the way you want it.
