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?

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

Recently I purchased Toshiba REGZA 47 XL 700 E is LED. Is this TV LED ?


Yes and NO your tv is a LED. To be exact it is a LED Backlight LCD TV. An LED-backlight LCD television is an LCD TV that uses LED backlighting instead of the CCFLs used in traditional LCD televisions. It is not a true LED display but is called "LED TV" by some manufacturers.[1] The use of LED backlighting has a dramatic impact, resulting in a thinner panel, less power consumption and heat dissipation, and a brighter display with better contrast levels. You can go to http://www.regza-asia.com/pdf/LEDTV/XL700/47XL700SPEC.pdf and look at the complete specs for your tv

Problem connecting quite new macbook pro to the toshiba regza 57" Z3030 LCD TV... doesn't seem to work


You may find that as Mac uses a different standard for VGA output, the sync will be on a different pin not recognized by the TV.
You may need to purchase a Mac to IBM adapter from a computer store.
Hope this helps.

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)
