Make sure the TV is configured properly first off, make sure it's one of the auxilaries that are selected. Now if you haven't already, you should usually press F-something to get your lappy on dual display mode (F8 usually). If that fails, you may have to ween through some of the display properties, which isn't a big deal, but would require more of a live chat session to go through, or more info on here and some patience :).

WATCHING MOVIE ON LAP TOP HAVE SOUND NO PICTURE


Is it a commercially sold DVD or one someone burned? If it is one that someone burned then you may need to find the right codecs for the file type used for the video. You could always download VLC media player which works with many different media file types.

And, I actually JUST noticed you said watching a "movie" and not specifically a DVD. However, all of the above could still help.

My lap top is working ok, but i h ave got a yellow line running from top to bottom,its brand new


Contact Compaq- that line is a likely indicator of a bad LCD or video card- since the system is brand new, it should be in warranty.

I have compaq presario v2000 imtrying to watch amovie with the windows media player,i only get sound and no picture


Hello

OK, this problem can occur due to a codex. I would suggest that you try downloading Media player classic, i use it, and it plays pretty much all the video and audio formats.

Click HERE to navigate to the download page.

After the download is complete, install the software, then, open the movie with the software you installed.

Let em know if it works.

Kind regards
Andrea

When I move my compaq lap top or type a key too hard


that sounds like a video card error. if you can disassemble the notebook, check for loose connectors, particularly the connector that goes to the screen.

Can I download movies on my acer mini notebook watch with no wifi


without wifi your going to need some sort of internet access to download anything, check the sides for an Ethernet port, plug it in, do your business.
after you have it downloaded however, you dont need any internet at all to actually watch a movie. unless its streaming =)
hope that helps.

The last time I used my Compaq Presario v2000 I had it on battery power. The battery died and now that I am trying to use it I have the power adapter plugged into it and I get nothing when I hit the power...


This problem is either due to your power adapter, wall plug or the back of your lap top where the power adapter goes into. My guess would be the power adapter, they are infamous for going bad. Try wiggling the cord that connects to the power brick (black box) from your lap top.

You can get a RCA (with audio and video) to USB cord that will work.

Video cord for lap top


All you need to do is plug the video cord in and right click on an open space on your desktop. On the pop up menu select the Intel TV wizard. Then follow the on screen guide to use your TV as your second monitor.

No video from my casio ex-z1080


How are you viewing your movies? If you are using Windows Media Player, or equivalent, chances are your computer doesn't have the necessary codecs installed to play the video. This can be remedied 3 ways:

1. Install random video codecs one by one for hours on end and hope you find one that works.
2. Install the K-Lite Codec Pack Full edition (http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm) and have every driver under the sun on your computer, ensuring it plays the video.
3. (Recommended) Install VLC media player, a lightweight media player that has self contained, very space efficient codecs that will play pretty much anything you can throw at it. (Even improperly transcoded ("broken") files.) http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ This solution will benefit you in the long run as chances are you won't have to worry about codecs again.
