As you have not mentioned the type of TV you want to connect I assume you are having the normal TV and not a High Definition TV.
First check the back of your computer . If there is a small yellow (round) port which is the TV out port(It is similar to the ones found on a DVD player. If you have TV out port in your computer then you can connect your PC to your TV. Or you can buy a video card for your computer which has a tv output port.

Hey iJust bought a 42 inch Phillips lcd tv And i am trying to attatch my lToshiba E100 Satllite lap top to it via the HDMI ports on both the tv and laptop but nothing is happening

When you have the tv connected and both on, Switch the TV to the HDMI feed then press the [FN] key and hold and start pressing the [F4] key counting to 10 between presses. You have to tell the computer bios to activate the external port and send video signal to that port.

How to setup the s-video config to display on lcd tv Sahara dn610

This answer is not specific to Dell, sort of a general answer but should work on your system.

Shut down your computer and make the connections between your computers s-video out and the tv s-video input. Leave your monitor attatched or you won't see anything. Also turn on the tv so that it's working.

Start the computer up and let if finish doing it's startup, it may find the connection on it's own, but probably not. Once the computer has started up and it has nothing else to startup, then right click on thre screen, bring up your display, go into the advanced tab, and from here you will have to do some hunting, what you are looking for is the output section, since from here you will have to tell the computer what is on the s-video output, ie crt, plasma, lcd. Once you have that you should be good to go.

I don't know where it is in your computer software but it should be in there someplace.

Hope this helps and that you get it done.

Samsung 2333HD to dvd/vcr combo

Hi there,

On a DVD/VCR combo unit....the Component Output (RED, GREEN, BLUE) is exclusive to the DVD player section only (VCR can only output analogue source) and will only be able to view DVD.

To watch VCR, you will need to connect to your TV via Composite (YELLOW) cable, into the Yellow AV input on your TV. You can then tune the VCR section to match your TV's RF input (if you prefer this connection).

Good luck...

Overload wihout any attatched components

If you don't have anything attatched to the unit and it display's "overload" Your unit needs to be serviced. Output transistors are shorted. Get an estimate and weigh the cost of repair vs. replacement. Hope this helps

Tv connections

Depending on the model of video card you have, it would be either the VGA or the DVI connector. Many new cards have one of each or 2 of either VGA or DVI.

Many newer LCD monitors can to plugged into either connector, as they have connections for both. There are adapters that will allow VGA to be plugged into DVI as well.

If you computer does not have multiple outputs, you can only plug in one monitor, however.
