I am trying to connect my toshiba laptop to my philips tv by vga but i do not know what settings to put my laptop on
Assuming that you have hooked the cables right, you need to press the key combination Fn + F? to activate the external video output of the Toshiba laptop. The "?" would depend on the exact model of your Toshiba. Additionally, there would be a blue lettered indicator on one of the top keys of keyboard indicating a monitor.
Incidentally, it might be worth mentioning that most TV can not operate on too high a setting of the Resolution of your Display Properties and therefore would require that the laptop's Screen Resolution be lowered down when used in conjunction with an external display device such as a monitor. At other times, the Screen refresh Rates would need to be lowered down also.
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.
