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.

Connecting laptop to tv with s-video


What trouble are you having? I can tell you for certain, once you do get connected with S-Video the picture quality is going to be VERY poor intact almost unusable. I see the TV appears to be a 32" CRT (bulky) type but what is the make and model of laptop?

Trouble connecting dell vostro 1500 with lcd tv


Depending on the operating system on your Dell. Try right click on the desktop and go to graphics properties or display settings. If the computer can 'see' the TV try to enable it by clicking 'extend desktop to this display'. If you cannot "see" the TV try the detect button and enable it as per above.

Cant connect asus computer to tv via hdmi


Try turning both pc and tv off and connect, then turn both on. Also, make sure your Display setting are correctly configured. Goto Control Panel, Display and click on Settings Tab. If your still having trouble. Try changing your resolution and make sure that you have your TV to the right input. My TV has 4 HDMI 3 RCA 2Component 1 Digital Optical many USBs...can get kinda confusing. The connection should be numbered. Switch inputs with your remote til you get the right port. Then work on getting your pc to display correctly. Set your aspect ration to 16:9 first. Most tv and laptops are set this way. GOOD LUCK let me know how it goes.

Lenovo T60 interfacing with Vizio HDTV using RGB cable


The X1400 supports Full-HD resolution. Full-HD/True-hd (1920x1080)
The best output would be via DVI but you are limited with the VGA port.
I would purchase a Grand Hi-Wire PC to HDTV converter from www.globalcomputer.com. Item # G126-1036 @ $139.99

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Connecting laptop to tv


Turn the laptop off, the TV on

Start laptop

If the TV does not get a screen by the time desktop appears, open your graphic controls (usually on bottom right of menu bar) and select external monitor, then set parameters (size, PAL/NTSC, etc)

If this utility is not available there, look for a color-coded FN key, and a correlative same color icon on F keys (F1-F12) that resembles a monitor (rectangle),. Press both of these simultaneously, which brings up monitor option there.
