Yes, you can. However, you need to have a TV tuner installed in your desktop and media center software.

I have a toshiba satellite m55-s135 and i just bought the cord to hook it up to my LG tv, but when i push input to pc, there is no signal, i have tried fn and f5, but nothing happens. What do i need to do?


Hi, since you connected a "Output Device" a [TV] to your Computer, its become another Monitor; so the Computer is trying to identify another Monitor being connected. This is what you need to do; (right click) on a [empty] area of the Desktop Screen, in the "shortcut" window, select the "Personalize," in the next window which should be the [Personalize and appearance...], select the "Display" applet, and open to the Display Setting window. Now since your "Primary Monitor is the Laptop, the "Secondary Monitor" will be the TV [ Monitor 2], click on the Identify Monitors. Next, once the Computer recognize the TV, click on the "Apply and OK buttons. Note: You may be required to "Restart the Computer for the effect to take properly." If all goes well; give the solution a "Helpful Rating," thanks.

I'm trying to hook up my pc to my tv ( it's hooked up right, & my screen saver picture is on the tv screen, but not the desktop icons, & I can't get anything else on, I pressed tne Fn & F5 key...


If you see something coming from your PC on your TV, you're almost there!

When you hook up a monitor to your laptop, there's two ways it can work. It can show the same image on both displays, or can "Extend" the desktop on to both screens. In the extend mode, you can have different things on each screen.

Here's what you do to see which mode its in:
- On an empty spot on the desktop, right-click.
- In the menu that comes up, choose Display Properties, or Screen resolution.
- This will bring up the Display properties.

Here's where you need to look to get it configured properly.

You most likely will see two boxes in one area. One will have a number one, the other a number two. If number two is one the right of number one, this means that your display is being extended to the right of the number one monitor. You can verify this by moving your mouse PAST the right edge of the screen. When it goes past, it should show up on the other screen.

I am trying to hook up my dell xps all in one to my sony tv. the tv has a rgb pc hook up but my computer dosent


Judging by the TV with a RGB hookup, I'm sure that it has S-video. So does that motherboard...
Hook it up using S -video (cheap at WalMart), then go to Display properties.
Choose Advanced, then the Intel Chipset.
Choose the TV as the Primary and your TV will become your monitor

VGA hookup to my Toshiba Satellite


Set the TV input to PC (that's ViewSonic's term for the VGA port).

Setting the computer to output to the PC may depend on your OS (XP, Vista). Reboot the computer after connecting the monitor and see if new hardware is found. Reboot again if you have a flickering screen. In Vista, right clicking on the desktop brings up various video and desktop options. Choose Screen Resolution and look for the multiple monitors line. Click Apply and OK after setting your desired output. In the Screen Resolution window you should see two monitor boxes (labeled 1 and 2) if the computer sees the monitor.

If the second monitor is not showing up (no new hardware found), check your BIOS and device drivers to see if you need to enable or update the drivers for the VGA port. Check your manual for the BIOS (often it is click F1 or F2 before the OS loads; it's often tricky timing and I have to try repeatedly). Device manager will have a red x if the port is disabled; the exclamation point (yellow triangle) indicates driver issues.

I realize this is nearly a year after you posted your questions but I hope it will help the next person searching for answers on this TV.

Have toshiba satellite a130/a135 laptop screen red then goes blank


Try hooking up a external monitor. If you get video on the monitor and not the LCD, then your LCD may be in trouble.
If you don't get video on the external monitor, then your video card is gone.
