1. Connect the S Video cable from the out on your laptop to the in on your tv.
2. Press the key combination on your laptop that switches the output from the screen to the external device. This varies per laptop but there should be a picture of a screen in blue above one of the number keys. You press the function (FN) key on your laptop and that button with the screen on it (usually 5) and that will redirect the output. Make sure your tv is set on the input of the s video so you can see it.

HDMI output not working


This might not be your specific Laptop it might give an insight into the problem and guide you to installing it

The 15.4 inch display on your Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop computer works well for basic computing, but its 1280 x 800 pixel XGA display can't compare to the image produced by a high-definition television. The Inspiron 1525 features several output ports that allow you to easily connect the computer to your HDTV. This makes it convenient to use video streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu to watch movies on your television.

Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on the left side of the computer, just in front of the RJ-11 modem cable port. Attach the other end of the cable to the HDMI port on your HDTV. The exact location will vary among the various brands and models, but it should be on the rear panel. Select the HDMI option on the television's video source menu. Most televisions have a source button on the remote that makes changing the input source easy. Turn the computer on. Once it boots, open the control panel and select "Appearance and Personalization." Click "Display Settings" followed by "Advanced Settings." Select the "Intel" tab and click the "Graphics Properties" button. Choose the "Intel Dual Display Clone" option and close the windows. What you see on your computer screen will also appear on the television. Right-click on the speaker icon in the bottom-left of the screen and select "Playback devices." Select HDMI in the list of devices and click "Set Default" in the bottom of the window.

How to watch movie from computer to tv


The easiest way to get your movies onto your TV may be to directly plug your computer into your set. Many computers come with video boards that output via S-Video, DVI (digital video interface) or even HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface). If your television has an input that matches your computer's video output, then you can simply plug one into the other and enable your television as a second display through Windows Control Panel or, on a Mac, System Preferences. Moving your PC within cable's length of your television isn't always convenient, however.

No video signal vga laptop to tv


Make sure you have the TV's input set to PC or Computer to receive the signal from the VGA.

Make sure the connections are snug on the computer and on the tv.

Reboot the computer and see if it automatically starts the display on the tv. If not, there are a sequence of keys that you can press to toggle the display between the tv and the computer.

Normally to toggle the display you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key located at the bottom left portion of your keyboard and then hit the corresponding key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display.

Trying to hook up a TV to my Dell inspiron 1420 PC using s-video to composite and there is no output on the TV. I borrowed an expensive converter which works perfectly so the computer IS set up properly...


that actually isnt a true svideo port. it does output video, but it needs a converter that dell sells for about 30 bucks (ebay is cheaper). it plugs directly into the "s-video" port on the computer and splits it off into both an svideo connection and an rca connection.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

I am trying to connect my PC to my TV. I have a Sharp HDTV and my PC is a Toshiba with windows XP. I have a componert video cable which is connected to the TV and PC. I have used Fn and F5 didn't work....


what model of TV was it please,
Does your computer have tv out video card installed?
For video to tv you will need a vga to tv converter,this is an external device and will work on the computers vga output straight into a vga input and give you 1 x vga out,1 x rca out, 1 x s/video out,comes supplied all prebuilt with onboard graphics solution. no extra power required runs straight of vga output.
Once the computers video output is established then set the TV up to tune into the converters output signal.
HD TV can be set up to run thru rca and components and if model is late enough shuld come equip with serial vga input for computers.Other than that HDMI seems to be the better quality of picture over rca component.Cost verses dollar really and function.

Cheap fix VGA to TV CONVERTER

I want to use plasma tv as external monitor


Your laptop is not set to enable the external video output.

Most likely, your laptop has a key that says "RGB/LCD" or something similar on it. This key cycles through the various video output options, enabling the laptop's LCD, the external RGB output, or both simultaneously. Most laptops require you to hold down the function key ("FN") when pressing the "RGB/LCD" key to cycle through the options.
