Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

Leads for video out put from lap top to t.v


Hello,

Firstly to connect your laptop to your television, all you need is the cable that connects a CPU to the monitors.

connect it to the printing port on your laptop and connect the other end to the 21 pin connection at the back of your television.

Then you select the AV channel and you will be able to do anything on your laptop using the TV as your screen as well as watching a movie.

Take care

Need to hook up laptop to TV


If you have an HDMI port you might also have an RGB port, use your tv video source button and go through your options. If RGB option is listed you have it. It's a standard moniter port, you can use a standard monitor cable to hook things up. This will not however carry sound so you'll need a basic 3.5mm size cable that ends in an RCA plug (can be picked up radio shack.

I use this method to watch hulu.com movies on my 50" plasma tv.

Another option if you have an "S" video on both the laptop and the tv, use that with just an "S" video cable.

Other wise look for a RGB cable that converts to standard RCA stereo plugs again Radio Shack should be able to help you. You can also buy cables on eBay a lot cheaper then a retail store.

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps

Notebook connection to tv


S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
