    You can pick up an HDMI to DVI cable from your electrioncs store. Bad thing is, you'll need a seperate cable for sound. A red and white on one end and headphone (3.5) on the other end.

How do I connect my laptop to my tv?


This application is really not that hard to do if you have the cables, ideally you are going to want the HD stuff so you can go depending on your laptop tops resources as far as hookups. If you have HDMI hookup on the laptop you will need a long enough cable to go to your TV just hook the cables up to HDMI sources both input and output then get a split Y RCA and stereo input that will plug into the audio jack the Red and White that is all there is to it really. Go to settings and tick on connect to another monitor.

Whichever sources you have to plug in with be it audio or video you will need to match cables to TV and your laptop. There is DVI, HDTV, Standard Yellow Red & White cable and popular SVIDEO source.
You can find all that information on the Internet on how to do this. I also took a look at the images of how to do this that is what your seeing above in the picture that came from images in the "Google Search" John

Can I hookI hook up to TV without an HDMI cord?My TV has only one HDMI port so can I use TV as a monitor with an AV cord?


Most Acer laptops have a Blue VGA Port for external monitor hookup. Does your TV aslo have such a port (most newer models should)? If so connect these and change display settings on Laptop.

I want to connect my dell inspiron 1525 to my lcd hd ready tv but have no idea how to? Does anyone have any advice?


The 1525has a a hdmi port which you can plug a hdmi cord into. This may not support the audio. the tv and pc should detect the new monitor automatically or you may have to toggle it by hitting F4 key.

I have my polaroid hooked up with an hdmi cable


Thats because your TV is not high definition and cannot process the high def signal. serial hook up does not give a highh def signal.

Trying to hook compaq presario laptop to philips lcd digital tv


hey fox,
sounds to me like a connection problem. If the compaqs output is vga, you need to convert the input (tv side ) to hdmi, component, s-vidio... what ever you can find. Typically when you hook up your computer to a flat screen or such, its best to try to use the hdmi ports or the rpg. But if thats not available you need to take the outout from your laptop ( whatever type that might be and input it into your flat screen tv. If you input laptop into tv under ( eg..HDMI) then when you VIEW it you need to select the correct source on your flat screen. Such as hdmi or pcmi or rpg.I know that the do sell alot of cables that adapt from one type of connection to another. Typically only one cable is required from the laptop to the flat screen. If you think about it you are only using the flat screen as a monitor.

DVD Upconverters???


Greetings jhays82,

Some DVD players can upconvert DVD signals to resolutions that match those of HDTVs, and send them to a compatible TV via a digital video connection. HDMI (High-Definition Media Interface) and DVI (Digital Visual Interface) both offer high-quality digital transmission of standard- and high-definition video signals. HDMI can also carry multichannel audio, and is backwards compatible with DVI (video only). So in other words, to receive the full benefit from an upconvert, you would want to hook it up with HDMI or DVI.

Thank You,

Agent Dort,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
