1. Check the computer for changing output (some computers use <F5>, <F8>, depending on which brand they are. I believe Sony uses <Function><F7> or <F7>).
2. Check what channel the HDMI port is on (e.g. AV1, HDMI1, HDMI2, etc.) - you need to know this if your TV doesn't automatically switch to the new input.
3. Plug the HDMI cable into the TV HDMI cable-in port.
4. Plug the HDMI cable into the laptop HDMI cable-out port.

5. Turn on the computer.
6. Press the <Function><F7> simultaneously ONCE. The screen should flicker and show up on TV.
7. Sometimes you may have to go to "Display Preferences" and select Dual Monitors or external monitor if your computer doesn't do it automatically. Repeat Step 6 after.

** You may have to adjust Display Resolution to 1024 x 768 or lower in order for the TV to work. After it works at a lower display (800 x 600, for example), you can adjust the resolution to the maximum the TV can accept.

SOURCE: connecting PC to TV

Most tv's are not compatible in this matter. They were made to be a tv, and not a computer monitor. Some of the newer tv's are compatible. If they have a vga port then they are compatible, but may not support or have the resolution expected. The vga to s-video cables were designed mainly for the use of the newer computers with vga ports to older flat panel monitors with s-video ports, at the time that vga was first coming out. This cable is on the verge of obsolete. So, I don't believe that you're going to be able to hook the two together, and get the outcome you want.

Does the Sony VGN SF790 support hdmi cables? I would like to connect to my Sony Bravia TV


Hi.

No I'm afraid not. It only supports VGA out. If your TV supports a PC input then a male to male VGA cable will do. VGA does not support audio so you will also need an audio lead to connect to the TV too.

Is there any hdmi cable for sony vaio vgn-cr510e unit?


Hello there,
Unfortunately your laptop does not have a HDMI out port. However, you can purchase a special cable like this one http://www.amazon.com/VGA-HDMI-Cable-6-feet/dp/B002TUC64W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304695016&sr=8-1 It will connect your monitor port to a HDMI device.
I hope this has helped! Thumbs up are much appreciated.

Set Up PC to TV


What type of video card does your pc have??? if it is an nvidia card, you have to go to the control panel and set up for dual monitor..when you connect your laptop to an external monitor, you have to press control and f8 keys for couple of times ...that adjust the color to 256. Are you doing that?

Let me know
