You can't connect a standard TV to a computer using a VGA cable. If you have it, use the composite (yellow) RCA jack or S-Video from your laptop. As for turning off a laptop monitor, look on the function keys for LCD/CRT or icon for monitor (typically 3, 5, 7, or 8) hold down FN key and press the correct function key.

Try connecting the computer to a different monitor to make sure that it's not the computer that is the problem.

Then try using a different VGA cable as well.

Monitor hook up


You should be able to connect the LCD monitor providing your laptop has got a VGA connector to allow this, then you will need to change your display settings depending on whether you want the same desktop on both monitors or whether you want to extend your laptop desktop on to the second monitor.

There should be a VGA port on the side of your laptop so you can plug the monitors cable into your laptop.
But I can tell you more if you give me the model numbers of the laptop and monitor.

The monitor turns on and connects to my computer then turn off but the power stays on. any ideas?


Make sure the external VGA port on your laptop is enabled. Not all laptops automatically detect a monitor connected and turn on the port. There will be a function key somewhere on the keyboard to control the port. Location varies by manufacturer and model. The usual sequence when you press the key is: laptop display on and external VGA off, laptop off and VGA on, both on.

Check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged


This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...
