Dear sir/madam,

Your laptop will have a VGA output or possibly a S-video out. For the VGA you'll need a standard VGA cable. Plug the cable in to your laptop and the PC input of your TV. If your TV does not have PC input it may have a DVI input. IF it does you can use a VGA/DVI adapter to plug it in. If it doesn't have a DVI input you can use the S-Video output on your laptop with a standard S-video cable. After the connection to your TV is made you will have to toggle alternate display by pressing and holding your [Fn] key and pressing F4, or F5, or another F# key. It's the one that looks like a TV screen. Press once to turn on output, press again to turn off your laptop screen, press again to go back to laptop screen only. If you want to put the audio on your TV you'll need a headphone to RCA jack converter (Radioshack). Plug the cord in to your headphone jack and the RCA jacks in to the same input you used for the video

good luck

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try pressing Fn + F? keys to cycle the to the different display options: LCD only, LCD + external monitor, external monitor only. The F? key is any of the function keys with a small monitor icon on it. Additionally, not all TVs have the same Screen Resolution capacity as your monitor. it may be necessary to lower the computer's display Screen Resolution, Screen Refresh Rate and color quality. This could all be done in the Display Properties (right click on a clear area of the desktop), click on Properties, click on Settings tab. The Screen Refresh Rate is at the Monitor tab of the Advanced Button.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

F4, I believe, is the button with the picture of a tv / monitor on it. If it isn't, use the any other F-Button that does.

My hp pavilion pc doesn't respond to video


That is because you need to download any codecs or ad-ons for your browser. (Flash Player updates, java, etc...)

The content is handled throught the server online, not on your hard disc or local device, therefore, it's not a hardware issue, but rather the software, or in your case, lack of.

when you are online and streaming video on web pages, you will see a notification bar above your browser window (below the toolbars usually) that prompts you to download or update a plugin, codec, or execute a program, app, or add-on.

My S Video from laptop works with TV however no sound on TV


No, S-Video is video only. Look for the Audio output jack on your computer (usually its a lime green earphone hole). you will need a 3.5mm to RCA Stereo output wire, and attach the RCA audio to the AUX input of your TV, and then hook it to the Earphone/Speaker output jack on your computer. Then you will have to set your computer volume at about 75% (not all the way up, but more than halfway up). Then you can adjust the volume on the tv set. (just fyi, if you have bass boosting on the COMPUTER, turn that off, as well as any Equalizer or BASS/TREBEL booster. Set your mixers and boosters to NORMAL for best sound. not doing so could produce popping or scratching in the sound from the TV, also, if you have your PC volume higher than 75% that can also cause popping)

Connect tv to computer


Be sure to enable the second screen through the windows display settings. Right click on the desktop background and select personalize (VIsta) or Properties (XP). Click on the settings menu (lower down on Vista, a tab on the right for XP) and look at the monitor setup. After you are connected via cable to the TV, go there, click on the second screen and select "enable this monitor", "extend desktop onto this monitor" or something of the like. Oftentimes it will not do it if you are not already physically plugged in so ensure that you do that first.

Having trouble connecting laptop to TV


In general, all you need is an S-Video cable. That will connect to the S-Video output jack on most laptops and connect to the RCA jacks on the TV. These usually run about $10-$15 and are available from many online sources.
If your TV has a VGA input, you can get a male to male VGA cable and connect that way, then switch to the external display mode on the laptop.

hi dear


Laptop Multimedia Ports Info
video_out_imgpcmag.gif

Component Video Out: Connects a TV or HDTV to your notebook so you can view high-quality, high-definition video streaming from the notebook. This three-piece connection (color-coded red, blue, and green) is the best method for sending video from your notebook to an HDTV or anything that receives component video. This connection allows the chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness) portions of a video signal to be processed separately, thus producing higher-quality video than an S-Video connection. S-Video works similarly, but component video improves color accuracy even further by splitting the chrominance signal into two portions.
Composite In/RCA: Connects a gaming console or camcorder to your notebook, for viewing video or playing games on the notebook. Color-coded red, white, and yellow, composite video input uses standard RCA-style jacks to connect your notebook to receive video and audio signals from your TV, VCR, game consoles etc.
tv_tuner_imgpcmag.gif

TV Tuner/75-Ohm Coaxial: Connects a cable box, TV, or VCR to your notebook, so you can watch and record TV content on the notebook.
Sometimes called an Rf input, a 75-Ohm coaxial cable can carry video and stereo signals simultaneously. RF cable connectors (often called F-type connectors) screw onto the 75-ohm jack, are pushed onto it, or connect via a dongle that vendors usually supply.
spdif_imgpcmag.gif
S/Pdif/Dolby Ac3 Digital Out: Connects your notebook to speakers or a stereo receiver to play digital audio stored on the notebook. S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a standard audio-transfer file format, usually referred to as digital audio. This connection allows the transfer of audio without converting the signal to and from an analog format, which can degrade its quality. If you also have an S/PDIF In port, you can play digital music stored on an MP3 player through your notebook. The headphone jacks found on some notebooks double as S/PDIF Ports.
dvi_port_pcmag.gif
DVI: Connects a digital projector or LCD panel to your notebook to display in large format either video content or a PowerPoint presentation stored on the notebook. DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a multipin connection used for passing standard-definition and high-definition digital video signals. It's found on HDTV tuners, a growing number of DVD players, HDTV-ready televisions, and some computer displays. DVI-D is the type of DVI connection found on most home video gear and carries digital-only signals. DVI-I is used with some computer video cards and can pass both digital and analog video signals. Some TVs have DVI-I inputs for greater hookup flexibility. DVI connections transfer video signals in pure digital form, which is especially beneficial if you're using a fixed-pixel display like a plasma, LCD, or DLP TV.

firewire_port_pcmag.gif
Firewire/ I.Link 400/ 1394: Connects a digital camcorder or external hard drive to transfer (but not display) large files, such as MPEG video, to your notebook. Also known as IEEE 1394, this is an extremely fast (commonly up to 400 megabits per second), two-way digital connection used for plugging in Your DV camera or other peripherals (such as an external hard drive or optical drive) to your notebook. It is used in digital camcorders because it is one of the few connections capable of quickly transferring full-motion video.
s_video_in_pcmag.gif
S-Video In: Connects a digital camcorder to your notebook to display video stored on the camera on your notebook's screen. Also, if your VCR has an S-Video Out port, you can transfer your VHS tapes to digital format. S-Video inputs use a four-pin jack to receive video signals from camcorders, gaming consoles, TV, or any device that has an S-Video out port. the S in S-Video stands for separate: S-Video connections transmit the chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness) portions of a video signal along different paths, allowing them to be processed separately, though S-Video does not produce as vivid an image as component video. This is a common way to display content from a digital camcorder or any device that has an S-Video Out port. (Firewire also transfers data files from your camcorder to your notebook, but it can't display video in real time on your notebook.)
S-Video Out: Connects a plasma or newer TV to your notebook to display video content streaming from the notebook. The most common way to connect a TV to a notebook, S-Video Out uses a four-pin jack to send signals from your notebook to your TV or anything that accepts S-Video In.

and use Fn+F5 or Fn + F4
to switch your ntbook to tv
