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.

YOU HAVE TO CHECK YOUR DISPLAY CARD FOR THIS WHETHER IT HAS THE OPTION TO CONNECT TO TV, or
you can use hard disk player available in the market, to connect to tv or monitor for watching movies etc.

Linking hp pc (windows vista) with philips lcd via a hdmi and dvi cable. When computer turned on and tv uned into hdmi channel i can view windows loading but screen goes black when it has loaded and screen...


You need to set your system to output to the port the TV is on.
If it is a laptop, there is an F key to change from LCD to LCD+VIDEO to VIDEO.
If it is a desktop you need to go into your display settings (control panel or rt clk desktop/properties or whatever system you have).

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.

Hp laptop blank screen/black, despite power lights on.


I see this a lot at work. Here are the steps I go through to TS.
1. Make sure the computer is off 2. Unplug the AC Adapter and remove the battery 3. With nothing attatched to the laptop (including battery) press and hold the Power button for 15-30 sec. 4. Plug in the AC adpt. to the unit and the wall (leave battery out at this point). 5. Turn on the unit. At this point it might turn on (I've had about 50% success on this). 
If this does not work and you are still experiancing the same issue you computer may be under HP's Limited Warrenty Service Encancement. Which is basically a recall by all means but don't call it that. HP will throw a fit and won't help. Seriously. They are going to want to check your model number and your product number. 
Finding these is simple. Look on the back side of the unit and locate the sicker with 2 barcodes on it. the number labeled "P/N" is your Product Number. The official HP Model Number is located directly above the word warrenty. Example: DV6312US.
You can also look here on HP's website for more information the the LWSE.

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.

Try to connect tv as a monitor


Does the desktop have an S-video output on its video card? If it does, you only have to get either an S-video cable and hook it up from the computer to the TV, or get an S-video cable plus an S-Video to composite adapter, and hook it up.

For the video card to output to S-Video, you may need to fiddle with something in the control panels, or unplug the regular monitor and reboot (at least on my NVidia 5600 cards, this forces the card into using the S-Video output).

Personally I think you will be very disappointed. Using normal computer applications while using your TV as a monitor will be basically impossible; the text will be too small and blurry. Web browsing on picture-and-headline type pages will be OK, but everything else? Instant headache. Most applications that are designed to be accessed via a TV screen instead of a TV monitor have huge font sizes and lots of contrast (cf. the TiVo's interface, for example); they're designed much differently than desktop apps. You may want to look into screen-magnification apps to make it easier on your eyes.

regards,

hope
