How do I connect my laptop to my Sony LCD TV? I have tried the recommended RGB on the back of the TV to the RGB monitor port on my Toshiba computer. All I get is 'no syns' on the TV screen. Can you help?

You'll need to make sure that your laptop & LCD TV have an HDMI port. If they both do, simply connect an HDMI cable from your laptop to your LCD TV and make sure the input on the LCD TV is set to receive A/V from the HDMI port.
Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer
or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of
the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the
computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI
card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner
card supports component video.
Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you
want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you
have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the
DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your
computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV.
If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the
"Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the
computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end
of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your
computer in Step 2).
Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer
monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the
screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television
viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the
contents of the TV on your computer.
You can switch to an external monitor, TV or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8
Your Sony vaio does not have any TV-out port to output the display on any analog TV. You can use your VGA (by using VGA cable) port to output your laptop on LCD / Plasma / LED TV (with a VGA port also)). If you still want to project to analog TV via the VGA port, you need to find a VGA to RGB adaptor. But bare in mind, it's hard to find one.
VGA port is like the port on computer monitor.
RBG consist of three colored port.
Good luck ;)
That's was a nice monitor,, yes there are some monitors that still use the RGB BNC, but your computer still has a standard monitor connection or DVI from the video card, a new monitor will come with a cable. Prices are down now on LCD's - the all-purpose LCD that are PC and TV compatible have those connections but they aren't as nice.
If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.
However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for
you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a
digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also
if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you
can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...
Same problem!!! Inspiron E1505 connected to a year old LG 47" 1080p lcd. My rgb used to work fine, plug and play with my pc. No luck with my laptop though. I've tried setting up duel monitors, updating all(atleast I think all) of my drivers, and rechecking all connections!! Please Help.
Every laptop has at least a VGA (computer video connection) and s-video cable port. A VGA cable is preferred if you want to be able to read text on your LCD TV. Check to make sure that your LCD TV has a VGA connector. It's a port that accepts a 15-pin connection so it's pretty easy to spot if it's there. It's just like a computer monitor cable if that helps. Should be able to find it at any local retail store that carries computers. VGA or RGB cable.
