How do i hook lap top up


Most Laptops have a VGA output port. You would just hook this to the VGA input of the TV for video (picture).
You would then need to hook an audio cable from the laptops headphone jack to the TV's VGA's Audio Input jack.
Newer laptops have a HDMI output so that is easier and can hook directly to the TV's HDMI input for both video and audio.

Hi i need to know what cable i need to conect my lap top to tv ? my lap top is a dell latitude d610


Depends what your TV supports. You could do vga to hdmi cable if your tv is newer, this will only do video since vga doesn't support sound. You would need a headphone jack to whatever your tv supports for sound adapter.

How do I Connect a Dell Latitude E6500 to a Sanyo Television


Check your ports on the lap top see if you have s video or hdmi or dvi or VGA the best is hdmi if you have that get a cable for either one of you connections also match connections from the lap top to what you have for your TV more than likely if they are both fairly new you should have hdmi connections for both get a cable that is long enough. I get my cables at amazon.com their prices are the bomb.
Connect them together both ends to lap top and to tv then make sure that you have a line in jack stereo jack with RCA ends hook that to the back of your tv and your lap top in stereo jack even better to your surround sound system. Set your TV to AVI 1 or 2 or DVI or whichever is your connection start a movie on the lap top and turn your sound on and see if you have a picture on your screen you should have the same thing as what is showing on your monitor on your lap top. Adjust settings and have fun!

How to run laptop through tv


G'Day mate!

In order to send the picture from any computer to a TV screen, you must have a VGA input on the TV. You can't output your computer signal using s-video, HDMI, or component cables because they aren't designed for computer use. If you have a VGA connection on your TV, then you can use a standard VGA cable. If your TV doesn't have one, unfortunately you're out of luck.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. I hope I've earned a positive rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

The lap top computer screen is loose


Those screens tend to lose their tightness as time goes on from all the opening and closing. Regrettably, there isn't much to be done with them except replacement of the part. You can jury rig it but that's about it. I,too, had a zv5000 and experienced the same thing.
Please don't hold my bad news against me when you rate my answer! ;-)

White thin line verticaly middle of lap top screen


Sounds like the monitor. Do you have another monitor to hook up to the laptop? If so, that will tell you precisely if it's the monitor or video card.
