There is a option on T.V.'s that you need to put it to VGA on the t.v. also you can go into properties on the output of the video to the t.v. and laptop to verify that it is sending a signal.
Also check to make sure all the cords are pressed in properly and that the cord doesn't have any cuts or cracks in it or any pins are bent at one or another end it happens sometimes it get's plugged in the pins aren't hard to bend.
Happy Holidays

My laptop doesn't have a HDMI port so I have to connect with two cables...I think ones VGA and the other is audio. This goes into the back of my old smaller tv...which is ok but I'd like to route the


Your TV doesn't have video output on either HDMI or Composite video. (There are a few TVs that do have a video out but often that is only available for some input/output combinations. You would need to check the manual but the PC input is usually not available for the video output.)

You could get a VGA to composite or component video converter and direct the signal to your new TV from your PC. One example of the first converter is here: http://www.cablestogo.com/product/29548 . An example of the VGA to component video is here: https://sewelldirect.com/audio-authority-vga-to-component-pc-to-hdtv-converter.asp . There are other models available. A few VGA to HDMI converters also exist. However, since those need to convert an analog output to digital, they are more expensive.

I hope this helps.

(A few VGA to composite cables exist. They will not work for your purpose. They are designed to connect projectors with RCA ports and understand the VGA RGB signal to a computer.)

How do I connect my laptop to my led tv?


Is there a HMDI output on your Laptop or a VGA output. Some TV's have a DSUB input source that allows VGA depends on your laptop it could be HDMI if so TV should have an extraz HDMI input on the back and you change the source input on the TV to the HDMI 2 or HDMI 3 source depending on where you plugged in the P.C. . If HDMI you need to buy a HDMI cable.

How do get my k100 to work on my tv


1. Connect your laptop with your TV using a cable (HDMI or VGA),
2. Turn on your TV and change the input in your TV (PC input/VGA/HDMI. Please notice that some TV have more than one HDMI input port, so you need to check it which port is connected to your computer),
3. Turn on your laptop and change the output in your laptop (cycle it: laptop only, external display only, both) using Fn key and the screen cycle F key (please see the orange icon on the F keys).

What do i need to connect my acer 5732z laptop to my sony bravia flar screen LCD tv so as to use the TV display as a large monitor. The TV has a HDMI output from a PC. There is no HDMI o/p on the PC


If there isn't no HDMI output from the PC, then you cannot use the HDMI option on your TV, however if your TV does have a VGA input option, the input adapter that look like that on your laptop, then all you need to do is buy a VGA cable from wal-mart or bestbuy. Walmart is cheaper though, however there is also option of buying a VGA- to HDMI cable on ebay if you want to go that option and wait couple of days for your item to arrive.

I have a Panasonic TC-P50X1 and want to connect my laptop to it. What should I do?


If your laptop has a DVI or HDMI output, then the solution is as easy as buying a DVI to HDMI cable, or simply an HDMI cable, because your TV set uses HDMI as an input. If you have a Macbook, there are Displayport to HDMI cables/adapters available.

However, if your laptop only has VGA output, then you must buy a converter. Why? The VGA output available on almost any laptop is an analog signal. Buying simple cable adapters will not make your TV (which reads only digital signals) read the analog VGA signal.

When i hook my L455 to my sony hdtv the screen on the lap top turns black and the tv only says no signal in the pc mode. do i have to change some settings on my laptop


TV:- probably has a PC input - which is a VGA connector looks like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/SVGA_port.jpg and then you select PC input on the TV to display whats connected to that port Laptop: - Now on the laptop, you will need to select the VGA output to work - thee will be a picture of a screen on one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard, F4, F5 normally on laptops, My Toshiba its F5 ---- (assuming F5) use the FN key and the F5 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>
If you are not using a VGA cable and are connecting by HDMI cable - then there will be a F key to toggle the HDMI output - and you will need to select HDMI on the TV - NOTE: if this has a blue ray player and you are playing a blueray DVD, theres is copyright to protection to only allow one screen to be used, so you will need to toggle the laptop F key to just output from HDMI

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

I am trying to connect my PC to my TV. I have a Sharp HDTV and my PC is a Toshiba with windows XP. I have a componert video cable which is connected to the TV and PC. I have used Fn and F5 didn't work....


what model of TV was it please,
Does your computer have tv out video card installed?
For video to tv you will need a vga to tv converter,this is an external device and will work on the computers vga output straight into a vga input and give you 1 x vga out,1 x rca out, 1 x s/video out,comes supplied all prebuilt with onboard graphics solution. no extra power required runs straight of vga output.
Once the computers video output is established then set the TV up to tune into the converters output signal.
HD TV can be set up to run thru rca and components and if model is late enough shuld come equip with serial vga input for computers.Other than that HDMI seems to be the better quality of picture over rca component.Cost verses dollar really and function.

Cheap fix VGA to TV CONVERTER
Expensive Fix HDMI to HDMI

(it is posible to hdmi over cat5e)
NO COMPARISON FOR QUALITY.
