*Yes you can: If your TV has either an S-Video input, or a VGA Input.

If it does not, then you wouldn't be able to without an S-Video-to-Component Converter. (very cheap though, if you buy one, you would use the same procedure For S-video below.

But if it does,

  • FOR S-Video Output: You would have to go into your control panel for your integrated graphics card, or graphics settings, and find where it enables you to use S-Video Output.
  • Then you would have to set the source of your TV to "S-Video" of course you also need an S-video cable to connect your TV to the input on the back of your computer, and an audio cable with a standard Stereo (3.5mm) headphone tip on one end, and standard Left/Right audio component tips on the other end. You'd Connect the stereo end of the cord into your headphone jack on the computer, and the other end with Left/right ends (usually white/red, or black/red) in to the input on the TV. (the audio input on the TV should be directly associated with, or by the s-video input jack).
  • FOR VGA Output: You would need to connect a VGA Cable to your computer, and to the VGA Input on the TV. For VGA
  • "To enable VGA out most laptops will have a keystroke such as Function-Key+F8 "Fn + F8" to enable the second display.. Look for a key that says "CRT/LCD" (the link is to an image of the key.)
  • So, [Fn + CRT/LCD]

    Most popular:
    Fn + F8
    Fn + F7
    Fn + F4
I Hope This Helps.

When streaming off the internet or watching movie computer glitches.Seems to be trying to keep up, but cant.Whats wrong with my laptop?


Could be several things but it sounds like you don't have a fast internet connection. Generally to watch movies you need 3MB or faster.
If you are watching via Wifi plug in your ethernet connection.

Whenever I try to watch video on my computer it keeps pausing then starting back up. It is very choppy with the constant starts and stops. What causes this and how can I fix it?


If you are watching online video this is normal for a slow internet connection. Live streaming needs alot of bandwidth. Its not your laptop.

Is it ok with a DVD movie or downloaded movie??

I have toshiba satellite L500D. I cant download any movies or tv shows and when i watch tv from yahoo 7 it stops and starts as does Youtube....PLEASE HELP!!


When downloading videos from sites such as You Tube, the download is known as "streaming video". It fills the buffers on your machine and then displays it on your screen. If your connection is not fast enough, the buffers will empty before the data stream can re-fill them. This produces the stop start situation. The best way to overcome this is to do something else while the video plays, then come back when it's finished and replay it...it will now play ok.
If your connection is slow, then it's likey its timing out during the download of movies or TV shows, stopping the data flow.

without wifi your going to need some sort of internet access to download anything, check the sides for an Ethernet port, plug it in, do your business.

Computer shuts down watching netflix.........1/2 way into a movie Dell Inspiron 1525mj


The most likely thing is that you need to adjust your power savings settings on the computer in Control Panel. Watching a movie doesn't register as "activity" to the system so if you are set to Sleep or Hibernate after an hour that would typically cut you off half way thorught the movie.

You can change the power savings settings or every 30-40 minutes move the mouse around or click the keyboard etc. to restart the timer.

Volume low when watching dvd


Not much you can do about this. The movie industry sets movies to low volume when recording for better sound. They expect you to have the equipment to boost the sound. This cuts down on their outside noise. Only solution for this is to install external speakers as I have done for my movie or TV playing (I installed a TV adapter so I could hook up a projector and display the BIG game outside) but as you say, we couldn't hear it until I hooked up external speakers.

Unable to watch full screen


While watching a video on YouTube, right click inside the video and remove the tick mark for enable hardware acceleration. That will solve your problem. Its a problem with Adobe Flash Player.
