There should be a couple keys you hit to toggle it to the external monitor (tv) look in the manual... if you don't have the manual you can download it here www.sony.com

How to connect to a sony tv


If your laptop has an HDMI port you can buy an HDMI cable and connect to your Sony TV. Most TVs now come with an HDMI cable
Once connected your TV should show the screen from your laptop if not
press Function and F5 buttons simultaneously! Alternatively you can restart your computer!
Still problem! Go to control panel and click on display and choose Sony TV good luck!

In all the laptops the HDMI sends only the video. If you want to send the sound you will have to use the analogue audio outputs - line out of your laptop has it (some allow the headphone jack to be configured as one) or just the headphone jack. You will need a cable like

I have a vga to hdmi cable for my acer aspire 3680, when I connect the laptop to the tv with the cable, nothing happens. neither device sees the other or even registers that the cables are connected. is...


VGA has only analog video signal. It is not digital and does not have any audio either.
HDMI is a digital connection standard with both digital video and digital audio signals.
A cable with a VGA connector on one end and a HDMI connector on the other still needs a converter box to convert the analog signals into the digital signals required for the TV's HDMI. Click on the following link to go to web page titled VGA to HDMI Cable - An Unfortunate Myth

I have a Panasonic TC-P50X1 and want to connect my laptop to it. What should I do?


If your laptop has a DVI or HDMI output, then the solution is as easy as buying a DVI to HDMI cable, or simply an HDMI cable, because your TV set uses HDMI as an input. If you have a Macbook, there are Displayport to HDMI cables/adapters available.

However, if your laptop only has VGA output, then you must buy a converter. Why? The VGA output available on almost any laptop is an analog signal. Buying simple cable adapters will not make your TV (which reads only digital signals) read the analog VGA signal.

Well, make sure your computer is compatible with your HDTV, also try using a different HDMI cable. Also, you may need to configure your HDTV with your computer, learn how here: http://www.ramelectronics.net/howto-av.ep Hope I helped :)

How do i connect my acer 5738 laptop to my tv


Hi,
First of all your TV should support both HDMI and VGA.
If it does lets start with HDMI as you will get audio through the HDMI cable.
Connect the HDMI cable to the TV and set the source on the TV to HDMI using your remote control, connect the other end to the laptop, hold down Fn and hit F5 to toggle between screens.
See if that helps and let me know how you get on.


Good luck
