Re: pc to tv display

It could be a the video driver settings. There is two setting for showing video from the laptop. If you go to the display properties page. Check and see if it is set up with the clone desktop setting or extend my desktop. It sounds like it is the extend my desktop setting. You want the clone desktop setting

Can't display with my laptop using VGA to 3RCA cable

Can't display where on another monitor or tv? Did you reboot the computer after plugging in the VGA Cable. Sometimes you have to hit the FN Function Key + F1 thru F12 to get the image to display. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and hold the FN function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 Key.

How do i connect my laptop to my television

You need a VGA to TV cable. If your TV has a component input, you need a VGA to component cable, like the following one:

The VGA connector is for your laptop (you connect in on the side) and the RCA connector (3 plugs) is for your TV

Check your TV for a green, blue and red connector on back.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Thank you

Pc to tv problem

The most common problem is that the tv dont understand the s-video signal. You can try to change the signal input on the tv to s-video, but it will only work if your tv support's it. I have a s-video to scart but I dont get any collours because my tv can't understand the signal. My solution tip for you are: Get a tv that you are shure can understand the s-video signal.

Dell Inspiron 2200 to Phillips 47 " TV

check this out *A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable. you will need a seperate audio cable unless you are going to use your laptop's speakers

Connecting Toshiba Lap Top to NEC LCD TV

From user manual (page 68):
Your computer comes with a built-in display panel, but you can also
connect an external display device to an available video port, as
❖ An external monitor or projector via the RGB (monitor) port
❖ A TV, VCR, or DVD recorder via the S-video (TV-out) port
Before connecting an external monitor or video projector, configure
your computer for the type of device you are connecting. To do this,
refer to the documentation for your operating system and devices

So you have to use an RGB cable or a S-video cable : your cable should be plugged into 15 pin VGA port in your PC and plug it into a correspondent port in your TV.
Try also S- video and select correponding input in your TV set (Both connection type DO NOT carry sound: use your audio connector from PC to TV audio input.)
Configure your extended screen using your manual instruction:
Once you have connected an external display device, you can
choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or
both simultaneously. The quickest way to change the display output
settings is to use the display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order:
❖ Built-in display only
❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously
❖ External monitor only
❖ Built-in display and TV
❖ TV only

How to connect acer aspire mini laptop to digital lcd tv?

You get the audio from PC: you must use a separate audio cable to your TV audio input.
Configure your PC Display properties to a lower resolution until you reach a format your tv can display.
If you use a flat digital screen check the manual to know the resolution to be used with VGA input.
Use Dual screen option or swittch main screen/external/both using FN key + blue key showing screen on your keyboard. (F4 or F7? check manual.)
