Question about ViewSonic N1930W 19 in. LCD TV
How can I hook up my VGA cable from my Viewsonic N1930w lcd tv, to my Toshiba Satellite? I have the cords properly in place, but how can I get the proper input on my tv to display my notebook?
Set the TV input to PC (that's ViewSonic's term for the VGA port).
Setting the computer to output to the PC may depend on your OS (XP, Vista). Reboot the computer after connecting the monitor and see if new hardware is found. Reboot again if you have a flickering screen. In Vista, right clicking on the desktop brings up various video and desktop options. Choose Screen Resolution and look for the multiple monitors line. Click Apply and OK after setting your desired output. In the Screen Resolution window you should see two monitor boxes (labeled 1 and 2) if the computer sees the monitor.
If the second monitor is not showing up (no new hardware found), check your BIOS and device drivers to see if you need to enable or update the drivers for the VGA port. Check your manual for the BIOS (often it is click F1 or F2 before the OS loads; it's often tricky timing and I have to try repeatedly). Device manager will have a red x if the port is disabled; the exclamation point (yellow triangle) indicates driver issues.
I realize this is nearly a year after you posted your questions but I hope it will help the next person searching for answers on this TV.
