I have a inspiron1300,and i wondered if it is possibe to connect it to my philips hdready tv.am sure which cable to use


You never mentioned what model Philips TV you have, however I've researched several and most seem to have a VGA video port in the back of them. If you have one of these (15 pin D connector) on the back of your TV you should be able to purchase a corresponding VGA cable (you'll want female pins on one side of the cable and male pins on the other side) and plug one side into the VGA port on your laptop and the other cable into the TV. Then use your TV remote to select that input. Should work fine!
See item 8 in the attached user guide link to see what I'm talking about. http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/4/42pfl3403_98/42pfl3403_98_qsg_eng.pdf
I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck! If I can help you further, please let me know.

How do I conect my Acer aspire 5750 lap top to my sony hdmi tv. I have recently brought a VGA cable that allows me to connect my laptop to my tv. The problem is that everytime i connect the tv and the...


"Out of range" means that the picture displayed by the laptop cannot be displayed by the TV, either because the resolution is not supported or the refresh rate is not supported.

Sometimes, I've had to set the refresh rate (from the laptop Display settings) to 59Hz to get it to work as opposed to the default 60Hz.

What resolution does your TV support? What resolution does the laptop support?

Matching these as closely as possible and you'll get the picture on the TV screen.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes,

How to get laptop connected with vga connector to


Unplug the television. Connect the VGA compatible monitor cable from the laptop's VGA monitor Output to the VGA Input on the back panel of the television. You will need a splitter to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the VGA Audio Input on the television. Never mind if you have speakers connected to your computer.

Press the Device button on the remote control or on the television front panel to display the Device Selection Menu. Select the device you want to view, in this case VGA. The only compatible resolution is 640X480 at a sync rate of 60 Hz.

Do not leave stationary or letter-box images on-screen for extended period of time to avoid uneven picture tube aging.

I need to connect pc to tv (digitech video) to watch a dvd from my laptop onto my tv????


Hi,
You can connect your Laptop with your TV in various methods which depends on the type of connectors available in your laptop as well as TV.
1. If your laptop as well as your TV is having HDMI ports, then buy a good HDMI cable and connect them. Simple :)
2. If your laptop as well as your TV is having VGA connect ( similar to that of monitor connector), then get a good quality VGA cable and connect them :) Again Simple.
3. If no matching port is not available as suggested in previous tips, then you have to go for appropriate convertors depending on the connecting ports available in your laptop and TV
I hope this is helpful to you :)

VGA and Audio cables connected to PC but no audio through TV


if your tv has vga input there should be a "line in" input very near it. VGA can only get its audio source through a "line in" connecting to the coaxial audio inputs will apply the music stream to a different video input on your tv. your tv has video 1, video 2, vga, and so on, but the vga cannot show video and then audio from the video/audio coaxial inputs. you will need something like a dual male tipped 3.5mm audio connector.

Good luck and pls rate this post

No picture when vga cable is connected


Most tvs can only handle a couple resolutions (ie 640x480) through the pc input. Even some HD tvs can only do 480. Check that your video is turned on and setup to the acceptable resolutions.

right click your desktop
go to properties
click settings tab
click on the 2nd monitor
make sure the box is clicked at the bottom
