Connecting a Toshiba lcd tv to a Sony Vaio VGC-LA3

I have recently purchased a Sony Vaio VGC-LA3 and I was hoping to connect my Toshiba Regza 32WLT66s LCD TV to it as a second monitor. However, despite having a graphics card capable of accepting dual monitors it doesn't have any monitor connections. The only connections on the Sony are the red/white/yellow pin connectors and s-video all of which are labelled as input sockets. The TV has got a dedicated PC monitor socket. Has anyone got any suggestions?

    is this a laptop or pc. most laptops u can just plug vga cable on one of the sides and use one of the F keys for monitor options. if it is pc u might have to by vga spliter to be able to use both monitors because unless equiped it only has one vga output for main monitor.

You should have a (vga) tv-out socket usually blue with about 16 pins in it,if you have not which is unusual then refer to sony for the laptops specs and location of tv-out socket.
The Nvidia graphics card should have one I believe the Gforce go card is the one for your system unless upgraded and is advertised to support this function.

I am confused, what monitor connnections are on the Sony Vaio? What connections are on the TV. Normally you you would connect the grahics card to to the tv via a db9 connector. You can buy a tv card to output via rca to the tv. Good Luck

I have sony vaio all in one computer model no VGC-LS25E and its screen turned white and i can't figure out the problem. is it LCD? or something else.


Did you completely turned unit off? Hold power button without power cord connected. Then proceed to reconnect power. Press power button and IMMEDIATELY hold key for aprox 5 secs (while and if it shows VAIO). It should load the BIOS setup screen. If you dont see anything like this the problem may be Hardware related, otherwise its Windows related

I have lost all my freeview channels on my Sony Vaio VGC-VA1,I have tried numerous times to re scan the channels but with no luck,this happened this week end


After the recent retune that all Freeview customers had to do (which failed miserably) this can happen on TV tuners on your pc's aswell.

Try uninstalling the product, and reinstalling, then rescanning. There is a chance this could work.

Where is the vga connection on the vgc-rb34g


I am afraid to say that the Xbox does not have a VGA out connection on it. You would need a monitor with a component input or HDMI. Hope this helps :o)
