Having prob connecting my laptop to a TV via hdmi

Hi, I tried to connect my gateway laptop to the LCD tv using a hdmi cable. The tv didn't response so I restarted the computer and the tv actually showed the same starting screen, but when the vista window kicked in the TV turned blue again and showing "not supporting". The TV is 1080i max. Vista is 32bit.

    I have 4 HDMI ports on my tv. I had no problems connecting my laptop to any of them when i frist bought it, now not one of them work. When the first stopped working, i went to the 2nd, when that one stopped i went to the third, and then to the fourth. I have now now run out of HDMI ports and have tried each port with my home theater and had no problems. i have also tried brand new cords. nothing is working any more. My TV shows that it is connected just not getting any signal. My computer makes a little noise everytime i connect it, but will not show that it is connected. Looking for some help solving this problem please.

Try playing around a bit with the display settings, there are not many laptops that are setup to automatically adjust to the dual screen setup with an lcd tv. Also, iv found that Not using the lcd as a duplicate of the main screen is a good idea, set it up as a separate screen...if you know what i mean, if you do it right you will see only yourbackground on the tv and no start menu bar or icons.... In this configuration you can set the resolution to the max for the best quality possible for your television.

Connecting my laptop to my sansui 42" lcd tv via the hdmi cable, i get clear picture but no sound


Does your laptop feed sound through the HDMI connection? You may have to use the HDMI 1 jack on the HDLCD3200. Change the HDMI setting in the audio menu on the tv to DVI and run a seperate audio cord from the laptop to tv. I hope this is helpful

Hi, I have bought LG LCD ld310 . Can I connect my computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable Thanks Jatinder Kumar


Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

How to connect/configure my acer aspire 4736Z to my LCD TV using the HDMI port/cable of my laptop? i tried to connect the HDMI cable but my laptop hangs...please help


for HDMI, I guess you just connect it with HDMI cable to your LCD TV, and use the FN+F5 or F6 to switch display from laptop's LCD to external. I think it should be the same way as using projector.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

First off, is the tv set to use the hdmi input? if not, change tv to hdmi input and try again. If still no good, you likely need to tell the laptop to use the hdmi connector. Try this:
  1. connect hdmi from laptop to tv and select hdmi input on tv.
  1. while holding the blue fn key (bottom left side of kbd) press and release the F5 key. This will toggle the laptop between the laptop lcd display, external connectors (vga/hdmi), or both simultaneously. Let me know if this works or not.....
