Connecting my HP Pavillion DV9500 laptop to my Samsung PS-42Q96HD

Hi there can anyone please help me? I have just bought some VGA 15pin male leads to wire up my laptop to the plasma TV. In addition i bought stereo phono leads in order to get the sound. I have managed to get a crystal clear image on the TV BUT there is no sound. The system on my laptop is VISTA. At the moment i have my XBOX (HD set up) and surround sound set up to the TV at the back but i have spare audio in sockets on the left side of the TV. I have connected the phono lead to the laptop in the headphone socket (tried both) at the front of the laptop and the white and red leads to the side of the TV. I have also tried other variations but still no sound. Might there be a problem because of the XBOX or surround sound set up? Or do i have to tinker with the Vista settings on my laptop? Can anyone please help me...really appreciate any help i can get on this...many thanks. Steve

    Hi Info2u...i have the white and red leads plugged into the audio in. I have just tried what you have suggested on the TV menu but unfortunately to no avail, there wasn't an option to change it to stereo. Would it be anything about to do with the Vista settings on my sound control panel?? Thanks again....

Sound more like your problem is with the connection to the TV. Make sure the connection at the TV is to an 'input' connector and not 'output'. Also, from the TV menu, if you can select the output the laptop is using make sure the sound is stereo an not 5.1 or 7.1 or something to that effect. All other connections seem to be in good shape. Good luck.

    OK, try the sound options within Vista. Check to make sure the sound is set for stereo and not headphones or notebook speakers. Also, check your media mixer and make sure none of the mute boxes are checked and the sliders are adjusted to a higher volume setting.

Please check whether the inverter is working and giving voltage to the display board. If not, this might require attention of a qualified service technician.

Lead from external harddrive to tv- to show films,--usb connection from harddrive to 15pin to tv


Dear ragalgey,
As far As I can remember, most TV design to receive the signal to watch whatever you want limited to available TV station in your local broadcaster.
If you think you connect your harddrive to TV USB or 15pin (VGA cable) then you can watch the movie file from harddrive is a totally wrong!
You need a drive or a player for those file that capable to configure your TV to play them. Or at least you need a PC or Laptop Computer that played your harddrive then send the images/video via Video Out Jack (Yellow) from your laptop, or connect the 15pin VGA jack from Laptop PC out then plug in to your TV. In this case you'll need the Jack/adapter to convert from 15pin VGA from laptop to available Video jack on your TV.
Good Luck!

Best Regards,

Webcam not working on HP Pavillion dv9500


The trick to the HP web cams is the fact that they work with one piece of software only. Go to the HP support site...here...

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01415015&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3985345

scroll to the bottom of the page to the "see also" header. Choosethe download youcam file. It is a binary file that can be saved to your hard drive and then installed.

How to connect samsung pasma tv to pc?model number is PS42B450B1XUM


Hello,

That does depend on the PC, but I'll assume it's a pretty standard PC.

You ideally need a Male 15Pin VGA cable to Male 15Pin VGA cable. (aka A normal Monitor Cable) The same as you probably have connected between your PC and Monitor.

Your TV has a 15Pin VGA Female socket on the back, this cable plugs into here.

For Sound the TV has what looks like a headphone socket next to the VGA Plug. You need to use a Stereo Jack Plug to Stereo Jack Plug Cable. 3.5mm. This goes from your PC's Audio Line Out (rear of the PC) to the Plug on the rear of the TV. It is usually marked Aux In or PC Sound.

Enjoy, The PC will look great on the Tv.

Connecting my laptop to my new TV


Hi there.
Check on the back of the TV for a VGA input port, if it has what you will need is a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo to mini stereo audio lead to plug into the headphone port on the laptop to audio in on the TV.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Unable to connect to samsung tv as monitor for hp laptop


Hi there
DSUB is VGA, has your TV got a VGA port on the back? if so and you know what the source the channel is then you will need a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo jack to left and right male phono jacks for the audio, the DSUB or VGA does not carry audio through it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
