Cant connect my laptop to my LG32LC45 tv


Hi there
Below is a link which takes you to a page that shows how to cable the PC (laptop) and the TV together, with a brief explanation of resolutions etc.
http://www.lg.com/uk/support/product-help/CT00008333-CT00008334-2132861
If the above doesn't get you any further then the link below takes you to an LG support page from which you can download the full manual for your TV, which gives the supported connection methods and the supported resolutions.
http://www.lg.com/uk/support-product/lg-32LC45#
I would strongly suspect that if correctly cabled then either the laptop external resolution is set to a level that the TV can't cope with, or the external monitor function is turned off. If the external monitor function is turned off then pressing and holding the Fn button whilst pressing a function button once and releasing both should turn the external monitor on. On a Toshiba Tecra the top line functon button you need is F5, on an MSI U130 its F3, on a Dell Inspiron 1525 its F8, on a different Dell model its F1, so you need to check your laptop and its manual to find out which button is relevant to your machine.
Sorry to have been longwinded - Good luck

I have connected my hp Pavilion dv6 to my panasonic p46v20z but no picture shows on tv. Is my pc not compatible?


Usually there is a key on the keyboard that must be pressed with the function key to alternate the video outputs. Usually it is Function F7 or F8. This key set must be pressed more than once to get the preferred setting. Each time it is pressed you will get one of the following. Out VGA, Out VGA and Monitor Screen, and only Monitor Screen.
Monitor Screen being the laptops display screen. Out VGA being the rear port on the laptop.
This is usually the reason for the issue you are having.

I have a packard bell netbook and i just purchased a VGA to S-video cable. i want to connect my netbook to my tv. i have managed to do this on my old dell laptop via a s-video cable just fine but i cant...


you should have a little blue fn button near your shift key and if you hold the and one of your function keys (usualy F5) with a picture that kind of looks like a tv screen shape it should switch between display options

Want to connect Laptop to LG LCD TV. Can not get picture on TV Screen only sound. What 'F' key needs to be used to activate VGA output ?


The "F" key you need is different depending on the laptop you have. Some have a plain box with a vertical line either side of it, others have a box with "LCD" in it then a / and another, plain, box with an arrow coming out of it. Any other designs for the F key logo will be varients of these two.
Remember to hold the function key when pressing the screen key, the monitor on the laptop will usually go blank (depending on the model) then the tv will start a few seconds later.
You may need to change desktop resolution to make the picture the correct size on your TV.
Good luck!

How can i connect a wireless internet connection with a compaq armada E500


Get a PCMCIA to USB2 adapter that has an external 5 Volt connection to it to supply the higher current for the wireless adapter. The power can come from the USB via USB adapter cable
After installing the adapter, the USB wireless device should be installed just like in any later notebook. The wireless device requires USB2 and high power. and won't work off a powered hub.

Cannot succefully connect my hp compaq nc6000 to tv


Hold the fn key and look for something that looks like this ‘I[]I’ on your keyboard with the TV connected. The key is usually on the numbers across the top.

CONNECTING MY LAPTOP TO THE HOME THEATRE VIA HDMI


You need to press the FUNCTION key or FN key. While holding down that key, Press one of the F keys on top. The F key will have a picture of a monitor on it. Usually F4 or F10 key. So hold down the FUNCTION key and press that F key. That will display your laptop on the TV. You can press it a few time to switch between your laptop display or both.

How do I use s-video output to s-video input on the tv


Once they are connected via a S-video cable, you need to hold down the Function button on the keyboard (near the lower left corner, beside the Windows key) and press the key along the top that has the picture of the external monitor. These function buttons are used in conjunction with the function key (hence the writing is the same colour) much the same as a control key or a shift key.
The button will toggle through 3 modes - internal display only, external display only, and both displays.
