Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Connecting Vostro 1400 to Sony Bravia BR6?

I've tried connecting an RGB cable to both (other option seems to be an s-video connection from Dell - 7 pin to 4 pin). The tv does not recognize the connection. The computer does not display on the tv. The tv gives a message that there is no connection I select the pc symbol on the tv menu and choose the cable connection. I have tried rebooting the computer to no avail. What am I doing wrong? What do I need to do? My computer is using an NVIDIA GeForce 8400M card. It's set for 1280x800 with a 60 HZ refresh rate. Will this match the 1280X768 listed for the tv? I want to be able to show photos (which tv says it can do and I can do from flash drive but it's slow) and to see how it looks as a secondary monitor - mostly photos are important right now. Thanks.

To properly drive your TV set, your computer will have to be able to supply 1366 x 768 with a 60 Hz refresh rate.

A resolution of 1280 X 800 is high. LCD and Plasma sets are very critical for the maximum resolution. You can go lower but not higher. If a lower than native resolution is used there may be some aspect ratio distortion, and the picture quality will be degraded.

There is a spec list at the link below:

    No signal sony bravia to dell laptop


    Most laptops have a combination of buttons you have to press on the keyboard to get it to output on the monitor output. Try pressing the FUNCTION KEY or FUNC/FN key usually found in the bottom left hand side of the keyboard. Keep that button held down while press one of the number keys. Usually the number key will have a picture of a TV screen on it. Might be number 8 or 9. Press both keys at the same time a you can switch between laptop screen, Sony LCD or you can have both..
