Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

Screen is white. connected to external monitor, still white. is problem lcd or video card? can i replace just card or does it require new mother board?


Problem is on the video card. You can check on your specs if your video card is pre-installed. Meaning , if your video card can be removed or it is embedded on the motherboard. If the latter is true, then you need to require a new motherboard.

I have a s-video output and hooked it up though a cable to the yellow rca on the back of the tv. how do i get that to work and watch the computer screen on tv


1. This depends on the ports on your laptop and tv - if you have a vga port on your laptop then connect a cable to that and go to either the RGB or VGA on your TV. You can also get RGB to scart conectors so ther eare a lot of options! try your local Maplins for the cable (or look on eBay). Do a google image search to identify the connectors you have.

2. High-definition TV sets have several options of input ports and cable connections available. It's even possible to connect a computer to most HDTVs to get its picture quality. If your laptop computer is designed so it can plug into a standard computer monitor, you can easily plug it into an HDTV set, and you may have a number of options to connect it with. You must connect the video and audio separately in most cases. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Laptop computer
  • HDTV set
  • Audio and video cables
  1. Step 1 Check the output ports on your laptop computer. There are three types of ports that can work with this connection: S-video (a circular port with pins in the middle), VGA (a square/trapezoid like port with pins in the middle and two screw pins on the sides) and DVI (a longer version of VGA).
  2. Step 2 Compare the ports on your computer with the input ports on your HDTV. DVI has the best quality, but not all TV sets will have these. Most HDTVs will have VGA and S-video (VGA has the best quality).
  3. Step 3 Connect the computer's output to the TV using the best cable connection that you have.
  4. Step 4 Connect the laptop's audio output to the TV's audio input that works with the video. In most cases, this requires a stereo-to-RCA cable, which has the single rounded plug with two black bands at one end and the red and white RCA plugs at the other.
  5. Step 5 Turn on the laptop and the computer and tune the TV to the correct input channel. Tune it to "Computer" only if you used the VGA connection; if you used S-video, tune the TV to that input channel.

What cable do I need to connect latitude D600 to a hdtv ?


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

What type to cable should I buy to connect laptop to tv


Youre laptop would have to have a video card that has a TV-out port... And for that you would have to run a S-Video cable from the TV-out port of your laptop to the S-Video port on your TV... I assume your TV has a S-Video port?
