I have a zx4800 touchscreen gateway and i want to conect it with the tv is it possible ?


You may be able to add a second monitor. You need a USB video adapter to get an external video port. There are no external video ports on the ZX4800 all-in-ones. Here is an example USB VGA adapter: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812225007 . DVI and HDMI versions also exist. These aren't the greatest solution so don't use them for gaming.

These will work if the TV has a compatible port. If your TV has VGA input, you are fine with this option. If your TV has HDMI inputs, you need to check the specifications. Some TVs have HDMI ports that do not interpret the signal from a computer. If your TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a converter from VGA (RGB) to the TVs input. (Component is YPbPr.) One option is http://www.ramelectronics.net/product.aspx?zpid=3294 . VGA to component video cables do not work; those are meant for projectors that understand the RGB encoding.

I hope this helps.

I have an Acer Z5600 desktop PC and i want to know if it is possible to connect an external monitor?


Unfortunately it is not possible. The system doesn't come with the necessary ports. Until they come out with an external display that works with USB, that system will be out of luck.

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

How do i connect my sony desktop model vgc rb52 to my tv. I checked the specs and I (believe it or not) do not have an s-video port, dvi-d monitor port or another vga monitor port. I have 2 usb ports,...


You must purchase an adapter that converts USB to a VGA Port. That is the only way!! Tigerdirect.com has them fairly cheap. I know of this because I did this exact thing and it works perfectly for me going on two years now!! Try It You Can Always Return in 30 Days @ Tigerdirect.com

the following connections available to connect ur computer to an TV:

S-Video output: If you have video card(external u will have this), you require an s-video cable and you connect s-video out of your computer to the s-video int of our TV.

TV-OUT: if you have video card(external u wil have this) you you require an coxial cable and you have to connect TV-out of your computer to TV-IN of our TV(it is place where cable connection goes from your cable operator)

DVI-D: if you have video card(external u will have this) you require an DVI-D cable you haveto connect DVI-D out of your computer(a white 15-pin port which looks like VGA port) ....

VGA: it is the port on your computer which is only used to connect to your computer but not to your TV or LCD(strictly)

How do i set my acer travel mate 2312lm to 1440 by 900 pixel so i can work my lcd tv


**Your Laptop has VGA port for connecting external monitors :

Laptop Video Specs :

Laptop's Max Resolution1024 x 768
Integrated Video card : SiS Mirage M661MX

NOTE : If LCDTV does not have a VGA port, you will not be able to use it a external monitor.

Steps :
1. Connect Laptop to LCDTV using a VGA Cable
2. Right-click on your desktop and select "Properties." (or click on start > Control Panel > Display)
3. A new window displaying several tabs will appear. Select the tab called "Settings."
4. You will see boxes with numbers on the middle, in your case 1 and 2 will be present.

5. Click on 2 and click on box beside "Extend my windows Desktop onto this monitor" then choose the resolution that you like (1440 by 900) then click on apply. If 1440 by 900 is not available, choose the closest under 1440 by 900. Don't go over 1440 by 900 since that is the max value that will work on you LCD TV.

6. After clicking on Apply, the display should be present on the LCD TV. (The disply is an extended desktop so you will not see the start button nor the taskbar on the LCD TV. but it should have the same wallpaper. You can Drag the windows to the LCDTV. This will serve as an extension of you desktop. (Ex : You can watch movie on the LCDTV and you can do documents on the laptop's screen at the same time).

How to connect my esprimo laptop to my lcd tv


you would be able to connect the laptop to the lcd if the laptop has an extra vga port. if it has the port make sure the tv has the same port and if it does connect them together and put the lcd tv on inut mode for that (ex. PC input, VGA Input, RGB input). you might have to go into the display properties in the control panel and make sure you enable it for 2 displays(1 for the laptop mainscreen, and 1 for the lcd tv).

Please tell me how to connect HP Compaq 6820S to TV. Notebook has only VGA, TV has S video


Hello Pabi24,
You can use a VGA to S-Video converter/adapter such as can be found here: http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=vga+to+s+video&category0=
This will work as long as your laptop's video out/VGA port is working, but won't get your audio to the TV (audio will still emit from your laptop).
Good luck.
