you must match the model of your laptop and download the right version (widnow OS) for you laptop.

in my experience, if you install window xp sp2 or higher version, you don't have to install the Mass Storage Controller driver, becasue window include.

in face, if you don;t install , it is not a big deal, or your window also install for you.

SOURCE: Connecting Gateway 450 notebook to tv using vga to svideo convert

It is possible that the signal from the portable is not compatible with your convertor or device, however, if you are getting no image at all (not even lines etc.) then the laptop may not be set to send a signal through the VGA port at all.
To toggle the image to the VGA port do the following

  • Press and hold the FN key on your keyboard
  • While holding the FN key, press the F3 key one time
  • Let go of the FN key
  • Wait a few seconds to see if you get anything thing on your external device.
  • If you do not then press FN-F3 a couple more time waiting a few second in between each try.
the Fn-F3 toggle switched between the LCD only, LCD+CRT, and CRT only modes. You may find that it works on the CRT only mode but does not work correctlly with both. When this occurs it's a limitation between the compatibility of the settings requires for both screens, so you would only be able to use each by themselves not together.

Try updating Win 7. Go to Programs and find Windows Update.

Microsoft might be able to provide the drivers automatically.

Afterwards visit www.intel.com/support/detect.htm

And run their auto detect tool. It works best if you run in Internet Explorer ;)

If you're still missing stuff, let me know and I'll help you track down what's left.

No video at power up


See if the problem is the graphics chipset before going any further.

If it isn't then the problem lies with the Video Cable, (Gateway = LCD Cable), or the Display Assembly.

The heading states Gateway LT2104u Netbook PC. This is what I'll be basing the solution on. However the main part of the solution, will apply to all laptops/netbooks.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (Connector) on the Left side of the netbook.

[ External VGA display port.
This is an example of a VGA connector, (Port), and a VGA Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector ]

The external VGA monitor can be a CRT type, (Cathode Ray Tube. Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable.

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the netbook on.

By default the display should be shown on the external monitor.
IF not;

A) Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F5 key.
(The Fn key is at the Bottom/Left of the Keyboard. The F5 key is at the Top of the Keyboard)

No display still?
There are at least 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of the laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of the laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

You may have to hold down on the Fn key, and tap the F5 key more than once.

IF, NO display shows up on the external monitor, you have a bad graphics chipset.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The GPU is the graphics chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

The GPU for a Gateway LT2104u Netbook PC is an Intel GMA950 ]

IF, display does show up on the external VGA monitor, you have either problems with the Video Cable, (LCD Cable), or the Display Assembly.

LCD Cable:

1) Connections;
The LCD Cable connects TO the motherboard, and TO the back of the LCD screen, in the Display Assembly.

IF, either connection is loose, you will have display problems.

Check both connections.
This requires partial disassembly of the netbook to access the motherboard side of the LCD Cable.

Also requires partial disassembly of the Display Assembly (Gateway = LCD Module) to access the connection at the back of the LCD screen.

2) Damage;
Observe the LCD Cable on the motherboard side. See if there are any obvious signs of damage to the LCD Cable's sheath.
The most susceptible area to damage is the area under the left Hinge.

However, the LCD Cable should be removed, and a continuity check of the cable should be performed with a multimeter, set to Ohms.

(By checking the connections, you are at a point anyway, that removing the LCD Cable should be no problem)

LCD Cable checks out OK?
LCD Module problem; (Display Assembly)

The LCD Module consists of the;
1) LCD Bezel,
2) Camera Module,
3) LCD Module Brackets, (Includes Hinges)
4) Microphone Module,
5) Wireless 3G Antenna,
6) WLAN Antenna cables, (Wires),
7) LCD Screen Assembly,
8) LCD Module Cover.

Primer:
An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
(CCFL = Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses)

The Backlight for the Gateway LT21 series of Netbook PC's, is a series of LED lights.

There is no screen Inverter that is replaceable by the consumer.
The repair is to replace the entire LCD Module.

http://support.gateway.com/s/notebook/2009/gateway/lt/lt21/LT21sp4.shtml

To conclude:
If the problem isn't the graphics chipset, (Motherboard replacement), and it isn't the LCD Cable, the problem is the LCD Module.

Go to where it states Gateway 400. Drop down to the second line, (EC54), and scroll across to LT21 in blue.
Left-click on LT21.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (LT21) it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

{ You can save this Service Manual to your computer. This way you can burn it off to a CD disk, AND remove it from the computer to save harddrive space, and not have to temporarily download it again }

How to connect my acer D255E to the TV


According to the limited resources that I could find your only video output is a VGA port. Most newer televisions, predominantly LCD televisions will allow a direct connection via VGA. If your TV does not support VGA, can try using:
VGA to HMDI for HDTV's - Amazon search http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=vga+to+hdmi&x=0&y=0
With these I typically recommend a full force converter over a cable, but often times cables will work. Remember that with a VGA to HDMI cable only, this will only pass video and not audio. You will need separate cables for audio.
If you have a non-HDTV try this: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Adapter-S-Video-Cable-Video/dp/B000Y7T5UU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1315249911&sr=8-1
Use either S-video or RCA connectors to your TV.

I would like to use my Sylvania LC320ss8 Flat screen tv as a computer monitor but when I plug in the monitor plug the screen on the tv says format not supported. My operating system is Windows 7 and...


If you have connected the TV to the computer with a VGA cable, what resolution was your previous monitor using? You may need to change the resolution or refresh rate with your regular monitor attached. This TV has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 .

If you are connected via one of the HDMI ports, check the specifications for your TV. Then try using the VGA output. Not all TVs support a computer signal over HDMI. Unfortunately, I can't find the LC320ss8 at the Sylvania Support site: http://www.sylvaniaconsumerelectronics.com/ . If the model number has an error, click on Downloads and enter the correct model number.

I hope this helps.

I'm connecting to a tv with a VGA cable from my Acer netbook. My tv says No Signal. Windows makes the "ba dum" sound when I connect/disconect the cable, but under my display settings, it doesn't...


Don't forget that the TV source or input needs to be set to "PC". Once that is done turn the netbook OFF, then plug the VGA cable into the netbook and start the computer. The computer screen should automatically show up on the TV.

Connecting my netbook to my tv


Hi

You will need a male to male, 15 pin D-SUB VGA cable to connect the webbook to the TV. You also have to make sure that your television supports such a connection. If not and it has side AV then you can get a male to RCA VGA cable.

Then you will need an audio cable as VGA does not carry a an audio signal. You will need a male to male mini stereo jack.

Connect the VGA cable to your computer and then to the TV. Then plug the audio jack into the headphones socket of the webbook and to the PC IN or audio in on the TV.

Turn the webbook on and if you have to use the Fn key and one of the F keys to switch screens (it usually does it automatically but the keys are usually between F4 and F7)
