Re: which function key allows to switch to tv
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center
fn + f2 Opens print options window
fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser
fn + f4 Switches the image among displays
fn + f5 Initiates Standby
fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock
fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness
fn + f8 Increases screen brightness
fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD
fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD
fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD
fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD
fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...

Run the S-Video cable from the laptop to the tv. Take the tv's remote
control and hit the Select Input button. Select S-Video or PC as your
input source. Reboot the laptop and the video might show automatically.
The video will show on most systems when you
reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit
the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the
correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key
will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
Computers have two seperate systems - one for video and one for sound.
The only computer (or laptop) connection that carries both video
and sound is HDMI. If you do not have a HDMI/DVI connector on the back
of your computer, then you will have to use the VGA-composite or
s-video connectors to display your PC's output on an external monitor
like an LCD TV.
On both my HP and Dell laptops the display settings (Start/Control
Panel/Personalize/Display Settings) allow two modes - single or dual
monitor mode. Single monitor mode allows me to switch between any one
of three possible video outputs - VGA-composite, S-Video or laptop
screen, or a split-desktop (display spread over two seperate monitors).
Dual monitor mode allows the same display on any two of three possible
Switching is performed using the fn keys on the keyboard (fn key
plus the F2, F8, etc. function key with the display marking). You guys
use single monitor mode until you figure out what your are doing.
Select VGA-composite or S-Video.
Non-HDMI sound to your TV monitor or sound system must be obtained
from your laptop's Headphone or S/PDIF jacks. Headphone is stereo and
S/PDIF is 5.1 surround sound. Headphone is electrical, but S/PDIF may
be electrical or optical (laser light). You must set the sound jack
that you intend to use as the default on the PC control panel
None of these connectors is two-way in the context of an LCD
monitor - your PC cannot record a TV picture or sound from the external
monitor. To accomplish this you must purchase a video converter box
that converts cable TV or video+sound inputs to USB format usable by
your laptop. Do this and you can turn your laptop into a Tivo
recorder/DVD burner using Beyond TV, Sage TV or a variety of other
Be sure you changed the source on the tv (i'm guessing you did this), be sure you switch the out-put on your computer to s-video. You can do this in the properties box. If you are running the nvidia video utility, you can set up hot keys to do this. I set up ALT, Z, 3 as my hot key combination. All I do is hook up to my tv, press the three buttons above, at the same time, and the video moves from my pc monitor to the tv.
Could be a sensitivity problem, have you tried to switch tv modes back and forth, sometimes if you do that it will save you from restarting the computer. I had a tv about 10 years ago that had a sensitivity issue, went to see about fixing it, unfortunately, the tv brand was no longer in the country and user service parts were not available.
Get a set of video cables to connect the DVD player to the TV.
Then follow the numbered instructions in this post to connect the DVD player, and use your TV remote to switch the video mode when you want to watch a DVD, then switch it back when you want to view TV.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]
2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".
You can't connect a standard TV to a computer using a VGA cable. If you have it, use the composite (yellow) RCA jack or S-Video from your laptop. As for turning off a laptop monitor, look on the function keys for LCD/CRT or icon for monitor (typically 3, 5, 7, or 8) hold down FN key and press the correct function key.
The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.
