Hi,

To activate the TV output, the Fn + F? would have to be pressed. This is to cycle through the choices such as LCD, TV + LCD or TV olny. F? would be the function key with the small monitor icon. Additionally, it is required that the Screen Resolution in the Settings tab of the Display Properties be lowered down to match the capacity of the TV. Most/regular TVs can only display 640 X 480 or 800 X 600. In some cases, it would also be necessary to lower down the Screen Refresh Rate sometimes as low as 60 Hz.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Cant get any sound on tv


Hello,

The only computer (or laptop) connection that carries both video and sound is HDMI. If you do not have a HDMI/DVI connector on the back of your computer, then you will have to use the VGA-composite or s-video connectors to display your PC's output on an external monitor like an LCD TV.

On both my HP and Dell laptops the display settings (Start/Control Panel/Personalize/Display Settings) allow two modes - single or dual monitor mode. Single monitor mode allows me to switch between any one of three possible video outputs - VGA-composite, S-Video or laptop screen, or a split-desktop (display spread over two separate monitors). Dual monitor mode allows the same display on any two of three possible video outputs.

Switching is performed using the fn keys on the keyboard (fn key plus the F2, F8, etc. function key with the display marking). You guys use single monitor mode until you figure out what your are doing. Select VGA-composite or S-Video.

Non-HDMI sound to your TV monitor or sound system must be obtained from your laptop's Headphone or S/PDIF jacks. Headphone is stereo and S/PDIF is 5.1 surround sound. Headphone is electrical, but S/PDIF may be electrical or optical (laser light). You must set the sound jack that you intend to use as the default on the PC control panel (Start/Control Panel/Sound).

None of these connectors is two-way in the context of an LCD monitor - your PC cannot record a TV picture or sound from the external monitor. To accomplish this you must purchase a video converter box that converts cable TV or video + sound inputs to USB format usable by your laptop. Do this and you can turn your laptop into a Tivo recorder/DVD burner using Beyond TV, Sage TV or a variety of other software packages.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

I have a laptop and a tv. I would like to hook my laptop up to the tv. The tv does not have a slot for a VGA CABLE and my laptop does not have a slot for an RCA CABLE. What can I do to connect the two?


You need an Video out, adapter cable, for your model Laptop, IF yours indeed does have the ability to TV out, the "output" is "Composite Video" and goes into the Composite Video "IN" on the TV. Audio is taken from Line Out in laptop & goes to AV audio in, via a Phono Jack to RCA converter plug. Also it must have correct drivers and be enabled and have desktop extended to the TV either Cloned or Spanned.
Usually one connects up to the TV, powers TV on & then Turn your laptop on.
You may have a Yellow RCA socket on the back/side of your laptop, otherwise you have to get a converter cable.

How can I connect my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872 laptop to my TV?


Check your notebook for "S-Video / TV out" port that has a 7-pin jack instead of a standard 4-pin S-Video jack. Check your laptop before ordering this adapter.

The newer your computer is, the better chance that it comes with either a RCA Composite or SVIDEO connection. Some notebook computers also have video outputs on them. When buying a new computer always look for the words "TV out" or "video out" in the computer description. 

If you only have a VGA connector and don't have an HDTV then your best choice is to buy a newer video card with an S-Video connector. There are other third party solutions out there but the quality is very poor and we do not recommend it. 

The VGA port is the connector that's connected to your PC monitor (the TV like device that came with your computer). This connector is usually only usable for VGA Monitors or HDTV setups. If you have an HDTV this will give you the best image possible. 

If you have an RCA Composite connector on the back of your computer, then you can use that. You may also need to power down your computer and reboot to be able to get the signal. You need an RCA Composite cable that will be long enough to reach from your computer to your PC. Connect the cable to the back of the computer to the back of your TV SET. 

S-Video is superior to that of RCA Composite and will give you a clearer picture. If you have a fairly new TV you should have this connector in the back. You will need to buy an S-VIDEO cable, which you can buy just about anywhere you buy home video products. Connect the cable to your S-Video on the back of your computer and then connect it on the back of your TV

I have an acer aspire 5100 laptop i need to hook up to my tv for a presentation tomorrow. there is no s-video output on it,. how do I hook it up to my tv?


If your TV has RCA jacks on the back or front. Input type. Then you can go to radio shack and get a vga cable to RCA jack converter. That is all you can do. Is the TV a flat screen if yes then you can hook up you pc with a monitor cable like your usine now in your house. Find out the type of TV.. Ask someone to check the tv for a computer port on the back.

I am trying to hook up my tv with a vga to av(rca) cable,but I can't get it to work.What do I have to do to get it to work?


If your notebook has RCA composite video out, you need to hook it up to TV composite video input jack, usually the color of this RCA jack will be yellow. Why do you not use the VGA port on the back of the note book to feed the signal into the TV's VGA connector, just mke sure to set the resolution of the laptop to be at TV native resolution.

Hdmi Port .


If the laptop has no HDMI port, the forget the whole HDMI thing cause getting it through that port when the laptop or desktop is not made for it will end up costing as much as a new computer altogether. You need to find out if the laptop has any Composite or Component outputs. Those are relatively easy to spot. a Composite output is usually a RCA jack and also usually colored yellow, and goes into the yellow RCA port on your TV next to the red and white RCA ports which are the left and right sound channels. The Component outputs are also RCA jacks, but are usually red green and blue cause each wire sends its own color to make up the TV's image. They will also go on the back of your TV near all the other RCA ports. Wether your TV has just HDMI and no other porte or not, or if it has either Composite or Component inputs or both, that i don't know cause i don't know what your TV is. As for the sound, if you also want it on the TV, you just need to go to the local electronics store and buy an adapter/wire that goes from a 1/8 stereo headphone jack to 2 RCA jacks on the other side, one being white and the other being red. See where i'm going with that?:P Plug the 2 RCA jacks from the wire you bought into the TV in the corresponding inputs that go with the input you plugged the image in, and the 1/8 stereo jack into the headphone output of your laptop.

Out Put on Television


First thing you have to change which monitor is the main monitor it can only play the video on one monitor at a time depending on your video settings. Secondly with audio you will need a 3.5mm to RCA/composite audio cable to get sound on your tv. Enjoy and please take a moment to rate my solution Fixya.

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.

Laptop to tv


Hi you don't have enough info to give a complete answer but maybe I can help. The modulator converts the video (and/or audio) output of a DVD player (or camcorder or video game or PC) into a channel 3/4 signal that is compatible with a TV's cable or antenna input. It makes it so the standard audio/video outputs and the cable input (even passed through a VCR) work simultaneously. So... The "S-Video to RCA" convertor plugs into the "Video In" on the modulator; this allows you to take your S-Video Signal OR your Composite Video to an "RF Coaxial Antenna" input signal. You should have 3 pcs. the S-video to 3-RCA cable and the coax cable and the modulator. Here is a link to a pic that should help http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/videoware_1965_3477147
