Once you're TV is connected to the PC. Go to the display settings and check if the computer detects multiple monitors. Identify the monitors and set your TV as the main monitor. If this a laptop there is also a switch that will let you toggle from the PC display to the TV.
Check the TV output some TV's needs the channel to be set to the output where the PC is connected.
Some says PC some may say VGA or RGB. (depends on the brand of your TV)
Once that is the output channel is set and the cable is connected then you should be able to use your TV as the monitor and watch that movie.
Hope this helps!
Hi there. You can connect your TV up as an external monitor either through the VGA or HDMI ports if your laptop and TV supports such connections. If you post back what connections you have on the TV and your laptop i will be able to advice you on what leads you will need to connect to the TV.
You need to toggle to the external display by holding the Fn key + F7 or F8. Look at your keyboard and you'll see little TV screen icons. You can also go to start/control panel/display settings or right click on your desktop and access the display properties.
There is usually two tabs with two displays and the active current display in from. Click the other and adjust the resolution and type using the drop down menus.
You might need to consult your TV manual as well to make sure your in the right input mode.
you may need either a s-video cable 6bucks and under... an rca cable (can be found everywhere) ot a vga cable if your tv supports it.... about 30 bucks need a specific laptop model.......in order to know what exactly you need!
