Re: Connecting Toshiba Lap Top to NEC LCD TV
From user manual (page 68): Your computer comes with a built-in display panel, but you can also connect an external display device to an available video port, as follows: ❖ An external monitor or projector via the RGB (monitor) port ❖ A TV, VCR, or DVD recorder via the S-video (TV-out) port Before connecting an external monitor or video projector, configure your computer for the type of device you are connecting. To do this, refer to the documentation for your operating system and devices
So you have to use an RGB cable or a S-video cable : your cable should be plugged into 15 pin VGA port in your PC and plug it into a correspondent port in your TV. Try also S- video and select correponding input in your TV set (Both connection type DO NOT carry sound: use your audio connector from PC to TV audio input.) Configure your extended screen using your manual instruction: Once you have connected an external display device, you can choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or both simultaneously. The quickest way to change the display output settings is to use the display hot key (Fn + F5): 1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously. 2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5 key to allow time for the display to change. This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order: ❖ Built-in display only ❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously ❖ External monitor only ❖ Built-in display and TV ❖ TV only

You can connect a variety of devices to your Toshiba TV via its front, side or rear inputs. If you look at the back, you'll see a variety of audio and video inputs to connect virtually any kind of device. You should see a few kinds of video inputs: Composite and s-video (for connecting older technology like VCRs and cable boxes), component video (for connecting older DVD players) and HDMI (for connecting digital technology like receivers and Blu-Ray players). Audio inputs are analog (red and white) or digital (coaxial and optical). Use digital connections when possible to ensure the best quality.
To connect VCRs and DVD players, simply connect the proper cable to their audio and video outputs, then match the cable to the proper inputs on the back of the TV. Make sure everything is secure and take note of which input you connected it to. Now, tune your TV to the proper input by pressing "Video" on the remote.
