The video port on a laptop is a 15 pin DSub connector. Connect the VGA cable from the projector to the 15 pin video connector on the laptop. power up the projector first then boot up the laptop and the video output from the laptop will automatically divert to the projector.

The 1525has a a hdmi port which you can plug a hdmi cord into. This may not support the audio. the tv and pc should detect the new monitor automatically or you may have to toggle it by hitting F4 key.

I WANT TO USE THE TV AS A MONITOR FOR MY LAPTOP THAT HAS A BUSTED SCREEN. I HAVE IT HOOKED THROUGH A CONVERTER BOX AND THE S VIDEO PLUG TO THE LAPTOP. ITS HOOKED UP BUT I CANT READ THE WRITING IT IS VERY...


The resolution for S video is low, 480i. This is going to be your limitation. You can try to change the resolution on the laptop, but this will more or less just resize it. Does your TV have VGA? A simple VGA cable would be all you need and the resolution would be much higher. If this is an older TV, they just make for good monitors.

I have an acer aspire 5100 laptop i need to hook up to my tv for a presentation tomorrow. there is no s-video output on it,. how do I hook it up to my tv?


If your TV has RCA jacks on the back or front. Input type. Then you can go to radio shack and get a vga cable to RCA jack converter. That is all you can do. Is the TV a flat screen if yes then you can hook up you pc with a monitor cable like your usine now in your house. Find out the type of TV.. Ask someone to check the tv for a computer port on the back.

Hooking a PC to your laptop's screen


Unfortunately you cannot use a laptop screen to view output from other computer sources. As you are surely aware, you may plug another monitor into the VGA plug on the laptop to view the laptop's output, but the plug is only for the laptop's output.

Nice thought, though.

I was able to watch movies i downloaded by hooking my laptop to my tv with a vga cable. now when i plug it in i cant see anything on my tv screen but a black screen?


There should be a "Fn' Button on your keyboard on your laptop, Try holding that button and pressing F4 which should have a 2 symbols separated by a "/".

If that doesn't work what kind of laptop do you have?
