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

Connecting dell mini inspiron with LCD with HDMI cable on both si


You just need a HDMI cable to go from the laptop to the TV. It is refered to as a patch cable. You then go into the TV menu and set it to component or in some cases it will say computer. The VGA on the TV just allows both style interfaces to be connected.

When i hook my L455 to my sony hdtv the screen on the lap top turns black and the tv only says no signal in the pc mode. do i have to change some settings on my laptop


TV:- probably has a PC input - which is a VGA connector looks like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/SVGA_port.jpg and then you select PC input on the TV to display whats connected to that port Laptop: - Now on the laptop, you will need to select the VGA output to work - thee will be a picture of a screen on one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard, F4, F5 normally on laptops, My Toshiba its F5 ---- (assuming F5) use the FN key and the F5 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>
If you are not using a VGA cable and are connecting by HDMI cable - then there will be a F key to toggle the HDMI output - and you will need to select HDMI on the TV - NOTE: if this has a blue ray player and you are playing a blueray DVD, theres is copyright to protection to only allow one screen to be used, so you will need to toggle the laptop F key to just output from HDMI

What cables do I need to connect my toshiba satellite m55 laptop to my hi def tv?


This really depends on the connectsionon your hi def TV. The laptop doesn't have an HDMI port (these ports carry sound and video in one cable), but it does have a VGA out port as well as a s-video out.

You can connect an s-video cable from your laptop to your hi-def TV, if the TV has an s-video input port.

You can also purchase a VGA to Component converter if your hi-def TV has component inputs, these are the Red, Green, Blue inputs. Amazon sells these, here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Premium-VGA-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B000RJLSZU

If you have a DVI input you can purchase a VGA to DVI converter as well. These are very inexpensive and you can find a wide selection on Amazon, here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=vga+to+dvi

Finally, you can also purchase a VGA to HDMI converter. This would be the most expensive option, but you can use this box to put both sound and video from the laptop onto the HDMI cable. YOu would need both the converter and cable for this to work. Converter is here: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Audio-HDMI-Converter-Adapter/dp/B0015YWV1G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263068538&sr=1-3
Cable is here: http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-meter-foot-cable-1080P/dp/B0002L5R78/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_b

Hooking a laptop to a lcd tv


If your LCD TV has VGA input, then you can buy a cable that goes vga out of laptop to VGA in of TV... Also you can get an audio cable that goes from line out of your laptop to 2 rca jacks for your TV...

Radio Shack sells both types of cables - and you can also buy them from many online retailers if you look for video or audio video cables... I got a paired set from pcconnection.com
