Yes you can.
remember you have to set your PC display settings and select the input in your TV.
Audio must be transferred via separate cable.
Let me know if you know where to config your display settings.

    Linux is the reason because your video card is managed in a complete different way, but I do not see why yous shouldn`t be able to config it

How to Hook Up a Laptop to a LCD TV by VGA cable?


First of all check out does both the LCD tv and laptop both have vga cable input socket This is the most important step, as it will allow you to buy the right equipment.
VGA cable is the standard 15-pin connection that you would use to connect a monitor to a PC or laptop. Use a VGA cable to connect your laptop's VGA output with the television's VGA input. Use separate audio connection with mini-jack (3.5 mm) to RCA adapter.
Turn on your devices. Once you've made the connections, turn devices on. Switch your TV to the input mode that corresponds with the input you used to connect your laptop, and you should now view your laptop on your LCD TV.
This will help.Good luck.

Connecting laptop VGA port to HDMI port on a TV
VGA to HDMI converter is required to connect a laptop to a TV with HDMI input. The VGA signal does not have an audio component. You need to connect an audio cable from the audio/headphone port on your laptop to the audio connector on your TV. There are HDMI converters with Audio input so you do not need to connect an audio cable to the TV. The audio is connected to the HDMI converter and then passes the audio with the video data to the HDMI cable to HDMI port on the TV. Check out these WEB site for these HDMI converters. http://www.aten.com/products/productItem.php?model_no=vc180 http://www.sybausa.com/productInfo.php?iid=1174 http://www.topbuy.com.au/tbcart/pc/Audio-VGA-to-HDMI-Video-Converter-Box-HD-HDTV1080P-p164633.htm

How do i connect my pc to my hdtv


It is quite possible the tv may have a VGA input in which case a standard VGA cable will allow you to connect the laptop to the tv. Otherwise you will need one of the following depending on what connections the tv has:

1. VGA to HDMI cable: http://www.amazon.com/Video-Cable-Black-Support-Necessary/dp/B002TUC64W/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1355697785&sr=1-1&keywords=vga+to+hdmi+cable

2. VGA to RGB cable: http://www.amazon.com/eForCity-Premium-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B0012SPNII/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1355697879&sr=1-1&keywords=vga+to+rgb+cable

If you do not have an HDMI input, you will also need to get an audio cable as well. Standard mini-stereo audio cables should allow you to connect the laptop to the tv.

How do i hook my compaq preario cq56 laptop to my hitachi hd plasma tv


The laptop looks like it has an external VGA port only and without knowing what model of Hitachi tv it is. It is quite possible the tv may have a VGA input in which case a standard VGA cable will allow you to connect the laptop to the tv. Otherwise you will need one of the following depending on what connections the tv has:

1. VGA to HDMI cable: http://www.amazon.com/Video-Cable-Black-Support-Necessary/dp/B002TUC64W/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1355697785&sr=1-1&keywords=vga+to+hdmi+cable

What do I need and how do I connect my Toshiba L305 model PSLB8 050302f to my hdtv to view online tv?


I dont believe that laptop has an HDMI port on it. If you have an LCD TV then your TV may have a VGA or DVI input on it. You can connect your laptop to the TV by using a VGA to VGA or VGA to DVI cable. If you your TV doesn't have one of these input ports, then you're not going to get your laptop connected to your TV.

VGA and Audio cables connected to PC but no audio through TV


if your tv has vga input there should be a "line in" input very near it. VGA can only get its audio source through a "line in" connecting to the coaxial audio inputs will apply the music stream to a different video input on your tv. your tv has video 1, video 2, vga, and so on, but the vga cannot show video and then audio from the video/audio coaxial inputs. you will need something like a dual male tipped 3.5mm audio connector.

Good luck and pls rate this post
