Hook up laptop to computer

I have a dell computer and a toshiba regeza lcd tv. I am trying to hook up them so I am able to watch videos from my computer larger on tv. I have bought a vga chord that connects the two of them but when I change my F8 key to the right settings it shows up as "unsuported video signal" but when I went to hibernate my computer i saw the microsoft logo came up as it was on the pc. How can I get the picture to show up on my television?

    It is still telling me that the video signal is unsupported. I dont know what else to do because everything is plugged in correctly but the picture just won't come up.

Your computer may be running at a higher resolution than is supported by your TV. Lower your laptop's resolution to 800x600 and try again. If it works, you may be able to raise the resolution higher, perhaps 1024x768.

To change the laptop's resolution, go to the desktop and right click and select "Properties". Select the "settings" tab. You will see a box labeled "Screen Resolution", slide the slider to the left as far as possible. Then, plug in the laptop to the TV and select the appropriate input from the TV.

Hope this helps.

    Try lowering the refresh rate.
    1. Right click on the desktop, choose properties.
    2. Select the "Settings" tab, click "Advanced" in the bottom right corner.
    3. A new window will come up. Choose the "Monitor" tab.
    4. Lower the refresh rate to the lowest setting available and try again with your TV.

    If this still doesn't work, consider using an S-Video cable instead of VGA.

I have a Sharp LCD TV and a Toshiba Satelite laptop. I have never had any problems connecting my laptop to the tv using a vga cable. It isn't working anymore however. I checked the cables and...

I would check the video setting on your laptop. The resolution or refresh rate might have been changed and the LCD TV might not be able to process the signal. Try changing the laptop's resolution to the lowest setting(right-click on desktop and pick properties) and see if the TV produces a picture. Also verify the video output on the laptop is working by hooking it up to a computer monitor if available.

I have a dell precision m60 and I want to hook it up to my hitachi 55 plasma tv Ive tried to do this via s-video without success

Trying to hook up your computer to the tv? Or the monitor to the tv? Anyways, you can't hook up the monitor to the tv to see the same thing on both. But for the computer to the tv, connect the s-video cable to the tv from the computer, and you have to press (on the computer) ctrl+alt+F2 or ctrl+alt+F1 it's different for some computers. But if that's what you tried to do, that's the way you do it.

Anyways, hope this helps.
