Question about HP Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook
I'm trying to connect my Compaq Presario 2200 to my Panasonic Viera 42". The computer only has VGA. The Plasma has HDMI and an S-video. I was going to buy a VGA to S-video/RCA adapter however I read that it won't work if the PC doesn't have video-out. I don't have the manual for the laptop do you know a way I can find out if I have the video-out on this particular PC so I can determine the correct product I would need to purchase to successfully connect the pc to the TV?
If your computer has a VGA port on the side then it has video out. I've never seen a laptop without one but I guess that does not mean they don't exist :) I'm not sure what model of Viera you have, but the one that comes up on Amazon has a VGA input built in. If yours does then a simple old school monitor cable from a desktop computer will do the trick.
Here is a good one cheap:
If not, you can buy a VGA adapter:
Also, if you want audio to play through the tv/stereo, you will need to get a cable to carry audio as well. This is what you will be needing:
The stuff I linked to are for 25' so you can hide the cables around the room from wherever you would be sitting but you get the idea.
If it gives you hope, I did this with my Fathers compaq laptop to his panasonic 50" plasma and it worked great!
