Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Laptop connection to tv

I have a dell vostro 1400 and a sony bravia tv. i can connect my laptop to my tv via vga cable, the problem is, the image doesnt show up properly.

the BOTTOM LEFT corner of my laptop screen is shown on the TOP RIGHT corner of my bravia tv. can anyone help me center my image? is it a resolution problem?

another small problem i have is, sometimes my laptop screen doesnt even show up. meaning only 50% of the time when i connect my laptop does it show up on my tv. im not even sure what i do when it DOES show up, because im still pretty new at this.

so if anyone can tell me how to connect my laptop to my tv and then explain how to center the image so it actually fits in the tv display, that would be MUCH appreciated.

How do I connect my dell inspiron 1520 to my sony bravia tv


Connect a VGA cable from the video port on your computer to the video port on the Sony Bravia.
Boot up the Dell Inspirion and hold down the Fn key and press the function key that has the monitor symbol to divert the video data to the laptop video port.
Power up the Bravia and Input button on the remote and select the PC input.
You may need to set the laptop video resolution to 1024 x 768 (a higher video resolution may not display on the Bravia).

The Bravia needs the video input to be changed to PC when you connect a computer to the Bravia.
You still need to press FN + F5 to divert the laptop video data to the video port on the laptop for the TV.

You can connect you Vostro laptop with Bravia through VGA cable. There are only two thing you should take care of.
After making the connections, first you have to set Bravia to display VGA input.
Secondly, after turning on your laptop, you have to toggle between Laptop display and External Display. This can be done by pressing and holding down the Fn Key and pressing F8 Key (CRT/LCD).
