Have you tried another monitor on the VGA output? If that still doesnt work may need to set up in CONTROL PANEL>DISPLAY>SETTINGS>DISPLAY- should show another monitor fool around with that and see if you can get it to work, if so then try your tv, But ive never seen a tv with a VGA input? Maybe its me? Good luck JLS

How can i connect my dell inspiron 1721 to my tv samsung led


If your Samsung TV has a VGA input then connect a VGA cable to the TV and the other end of this cable to the video port on your Dell laptop. Turn on your TV and select the VGA (computer) input then boot up your Dell laptop.and then the video data from the laptop will automatically divert to the TV.
You can toggle between the TV and laptop LCD screen by holding down on the Fn key and press the F8 key.

I am trying to connect my acer 1640z with my tv (lcd) with a vga cable but there is no connection even when i press Fn + F6 buttons. What can i do?


make sure your TV is on the right channel. it will not connect automatically.
connecting a vga cable will only provide picture but no audio. you may need a male to male stereo cable and connect it to the laptop and the tv's stereo jack.

Connecting dell mini inspiron with LCD with HDMI cable on both si


You just need a HDMI cable to go from the laptop to the TV. It is refered to as a patch cable. You then go into the TV menu and set it to component or in some cases it will say computer. The VGA on the TV just allows both style interfaces to be connected.

How do I connect my dell laptop to my LG LCD TV


1. S-Video – This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here’s a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Connecting Dell Inspiron 1501 to TV, Windows Vista


The PC card you have doesnt appear to work with that adaptor. Dell Has its own Svideo / Video output adaptors.

You need a converter not an adaptor. Try looking on Amazon for this: ITV-900 PC to TV Converter

Connecting laptop to lcd tv


Always VGA, however, if your tv doesn't have a VGA port, then it may not be compatible. When using a tv for a monitor there are a few things to keep in mind. First tv's are made to be tv's, not computer monitors. With most you won't get the visual resolution that is expected, and with some you need drivers in order to get the resolution or to get it to work at all. Hope this helps, and good luck.

Connecting laptop to tv


1. If your tv has a PC input, use a vga cable, from any normal computer monitor.

2. If you use those HD connectors, match them to the correct colour coded inputs on the tv.

In each case, do all the connecting with the computer POWERED OFF. Then when connected, boot the computer, and allow Windows to auto-detect the 'new monitor', as it will 'see' it.

Then you shoud right click on your desktop, choose properties, and goto 'settings'. From there you will see monitors 1 and 2. click on the new monitor and 'enable' it.

You also have the option of 'extending' windows to the second monitor, as well as making this your 'default monitor'. Experiment to see what best suits your needs,

Erik.
