YOu have should be a button on your labtop that is for a display. Usally use the combinations of CTRL and that button to bring up the options for your labtop to display on your TV also you can try seeing if there is a setting in your display in the control panel.

How do I connect my laptop to my tv?

This application is really not that hard to do if you have the cables, ideally you are going to want the HD stuff so you can go depending on your laptop tops resources as far as hookups. If you have HDMI hookup on the laptop you will need a long enough cable to go to your TV just hook the cables up to HDMI sources both input and output then get a split Y RCA and stereo input that will plug into the audio jack the Red and White that is all there is to it really. Go to settings and tick on connect to another monitor.

Whichever sources you have to plug in with be it audio or video you will need to match cables to TV and your laptop. There is DVI, HDTV, Standard Yellow Red & White cable and popular SVIDEO source.
You can find all that information on the Internet on how to do this. I also took a look at the images of how to do this that is what your seeing above in the picture that came from images in the "Google Search" John

How do I connect a presario CQ60-211ds to a Philips 42pfl3704d/f7

Hi, I don't know if you have sorted it out, but here goes.
I have a slightly different model to you, but mine has a HDMI output and my TV also has HDMI, just connect the 2 together whith a cheap HDMI cable, not need to spend a fortune and you should be sorted. There is another way and that is using the monitor ( VGA Connector ), but I don't think your TV has a pc input. I have just found this while typing.

Give it a read but basically the only connection you can use is hdmi unless you have a dvi connector on you laptop.

I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse and left the laptop near the TV so i can use it from my armchair.

Let me know if this has helped.

Sony laptop hookup to hdmi on toshiba 56hm196 wont

Change the screen resolution to something safe bofore you attempt to connect to your TV. i.e 1024 x 768. This should give you a picture & you will then need to adjust to the native resolution of your TV.
