If this doesn't work you may be able to simply right click on the desktop and select the source to display output. However this only works with select video cards. Good luck!

I would like to connect my PC to TV Grundig GU32DVD to wacth a movie from internet on a tv screen What should i do

Hi there,
Once you're TV is connected to the PC. Go to the display settings and check if the computer detects multiple monitors. Identify the monitors and set your TV as the main monitor. If this a laptop there is also a switch that will let you toggle from the PC display to the TV.
Check the TV output some TV's needs the channel to be set to the output where the PC is connected.
Some says PC some may say VGA or RGB. (depends on the brand of your TV)
Once that is the output channel is set and the cable is connected then you should be able to use your TV as the monitor and watch that movie.
Hope this helps!

What do I need and how do I connect my Toshiba L305 model PSLB8 050302f to my hdtv to view online tv?

I dont believe that laptop has an HDMI port on it. If you have an LCD TV then your TV may have a VGA or DVI input on it. You can connect your laptop to the TV by using a VGA to VGA or VGA to DVI cable. If you your TV doesn't have one of these input ports, then you're not going to get your laptop connected to your TV.

I don't know what kind of cable i need to connect my Toshiba satellite L305D laptop to my hdtv

depending on how old you laptop is because the L300 range has been going for a while will be either a HDMI cable or a VGA to HDMI cable but if you require sound and you have to use the latter you will need a headphone jack to auxhilary lead to go from the headphone port of your laptop to the line in on your tv

My laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 PC Notebook) Screen have wavy line. How to fix it?

I would plug the laptop into an external drive to rule out any mother board issue first. If it is still showing the wavy lines on an external drive then it is a motherboard issue. Otherwise, try reseating the cable connections from the motherboard to the display screen.
Hope that helps.

Can't connect to external monitor or to Sony bravia tv. When vga connected nothing happens at all on laptop but external monitor says " check cable" ( have tried another cable ). If connected in power off...

You need to:

- Connect everything with the laptop turned off
- Boot the laptop
- Use the Fn key plus F8 or F9 (I'm trying from a small picture of the keyboard!) to cycle through the external display options.

My toshiba satellite L300-the screen is black, have tried to switch off numerous, still no 'picture'. the lights showing power on etc r alight

Try pluging in a normal VGA monitor to the 15 pin HD D-type connector on the back if the screen is faulty this will spring into life at least then you will know if its your laptop internals that are at fault of just the screen.

If this laptop has no VGA plug it into an HDMI TV just to see if there is any life in it !!!

I am not able to connect my Toshiba Satellite pro to my Toshiba tv with a vga cable When I power up the laptop, I get the response 'out of range; on the tv screen. What can I do? Thank you

Have you used the keyboard toggle to switch between the laptop screen and the TV?
If you have no then the toggle is as follows>>>>
Hold down the Fn key and look across the F keys for a key that has an icon of a monitor on it and press that.
Make sure you have the VGA cable connected to the laptop and the TV or the switch won't work.

Good luck.
