    Thanks Benimur.

    I have made some progress now.

    I found the dual monitor option and I can drag the laptop screen into the TV screen. Eg. I can open windows media player in laptop and drag it into the TV screen and watch a movie. But when I tried 'clone' the TV screen goes blank with "invalid mode" sign. Iam not getting both screens to show alike.

I know this is an old thread, but I had a similar issue with a Protron PLTV-3250. I kept getting 'invalid mode' when trying to use it in a dual screen configuration on my PC. I found that this particular TV has an odd max resolution of 1368x769, but by default Windows was setting at the standard resolution of 1366x768, causing the 'invalid mode' message. Despite having defaulted to the wrong resolution for the TV, Windows still seemed to recognize the TV's native resolution and did have that option available in the display settings. So after setting the resolution up a notch to 1368x769, what do ya know, it works! This ****** is bright though! Way brighter than the 21 inch lcd sitting next to it.

I believe that you have connected it correctly since the Windows log-on is displayed. It may be that the Screen Resolution of your desktop is a bit high and therefore would have to be lowered to match the capacity of the Akai 32LW7. Pls try 1366 x 768 pixels or lower. You could also lower the laptop's screen refresh rate. Additionally, some laptops have to be toggled to activate external VGA by pressing Fn + F? keys to cycle through LCD, LCD + external, External only. The F? key would be the one with the monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have connected my hp Pavilion dv6 to my panasonic p46v20z but no picture shows on tv. Is my pc not compatible?

Usually there is a key on the keyboard that must be pressed with the function key to alternate the video outputs. Usually it is Function F7 or F8. This key set must be pressed more than once to get the preferred setting. Each time it is pressed you will get one of the following. Out VGA, Out VGA and Monitor Screen, and only Monitor Screen.
Monitor Screen being the laptops display screen. Out VGA being the rear port on the laptop.
This is usually the reason for the issue you are having.

I am trying to connect my laptop via VGA cord to my 65" Mitsubishi Medallion, but when I click on the VGA device selection in the device menu, it goes to a blue screen and says "Warning: Turn on...

Press the Windows key + P on your laptop.
Or, if that doesn't work, look on your F keys for something that looks similar to a monitor.
Press the FN key and that key.
This should bring up your laptop's display on the tv.

When connecting my Toshiba laptop to my Toshiba T.V. model type 20WLT56B I can't seem to get the laptop screen fully onto the T.V. screen. It seems to be a screen within screen. Any ideas.

You may have to set either the aspect ratio or resolution from the setup menu of the TV or set the external VGA monitor resolution via the Control Panel (if the OS is Windows).

Broken screen, external monitor via VGA won't

Press "Fn+F7" once, wait a few seconds, and press it again, to "cycle" through all the possibilities (LCD-only, VGA-only, both).

Try the monitor with some other computer (desktop or laptop) to see if the monitor works at all.

Restart your computer -- does the initial "splash" screen (showing CPU speed and RAM-test) show? Does the "Windows" screen (with the crawling worm) show on the external monitor?

Try right clicking on the desktop and selecting "Display Properties" and attempting to configure it there. Once it is properly configured here, F4 may start working again.
