Most tvs can only handle a couple resolutions (ie 640x480) through the pc input. Even some HD tvs can only do 480. Check that your video is turned on and setup to the acceptable resolutions.

right click your desktop
go to properties
click settings tab
click on the 2nd monitor
make sure the box is clicked at the bottom

How do I connect my dell inspiron 1520 to my sony bravia tv


Connect a VGA cable from the video port on your computer to the video port on the Sony Bravia.
Boot up the Dell Inspirion and hold down the Fn key and press the function key that has the monitor symbol to divert the video data to the laptop video port.
Power up the Bravia and Input button on the remote and select the PC input.
You may need to set the laptop video resolution to 1024 x 768 (a higher video resolution may not display on the Bravia).

How i can connect Laptop to SONY KDL 40ex710


Assuming the TV has a VGA input socket, just connect the laptop with a VGA cable and set the resolution to equal the specification of the TV.
That will do it.

I want to connect my Compaq Presario 2500 laptop to my Sony Bravia 32s2000 tv. My laptop has an S video output for tv. How do i connect it to the PC port on the TV. It has a hd15 connector?


Does your laptop have a VGA port? if so use a VGA cable, the frequency is correct and the picture will be cleaner. The S2000 has PC input. once you have it connected, go to your control panel and select display and look for multiple monitor. It just depends on your laptops operating sys. It can be found in help and support as well. If you need further help, post a comment and I will get you the answer.

I have a dell 1510 vostro and a sony bravia.....i just had eye surgery and would like to use my tv screen as a monitor and I cannot et it to work. Can you send me complete instructions or take control ov...


You can connect you Vostro laptop with Bravia through VGA cable. There are only two thing you should take care of.
After making the connections, first you have to set Bravia to display VGA input.
Secondly, after turning on your laptop, you have to toggle between Laptop display and External Display. This can be done by pressing and holding down the Fn Key and pressing F8 Key (CRT/LCD).

I have a dell inspiron (600m) andi also have a dell flat screen television. i used to be able to connect my laptop and tv, so the tv would become a flatscreen. i would go to VGA and my laptop would appear....


I assume you would switch the TV's source to VGA. Is that correct?

Connect it the same way you did before, with the VGA cable. Then hit Fn + F8 on your keyboard, to switch the signal from your laptop screen to the VGA cable. Then select VGA as your source on your TV as you did before.

If that does not work, please post and tell us what type of television you have.
