    If you are trying to use the Tv as a monitor, you need to enable it through windows. Go into the properties menu of your video and enable it through there. I would need the make of the video card and your Operating system to further help you.

Right click an empty spot on your desktop, select properties. Click the Settings tab. Right click the gray-ed out monitor, select enable.

To push the image to that screen, press the Function (FN) key and F4 normally.

Can I connect my fire hd 10 to my tv using a cable.


It seems as if it is possible to connect your Fire HD 10 to a TV via a HDMI cable. In order to do this you will either need:
  • Amazon HDMI adapter for fire tablets
  • Micro HDMI/ USB to HDMI cable
Here is a helpful article with ways to connect to a TV and links to the types of adapters on amazon.

How do i get the movies from my tablet to play on my tv?


Bluetooth if your television has it, or via your home network. You have to have the same app on the television as your phone. YouTube works really well.

Gateway M275 display scambles


I suspect it may be a problem with the video cable coming from the convertible tablet, up through the hinged support for the LCD screen, AND/OR the screen Inverter.

I would like you to connect a VGA monitor, to the VGA port on the back of the convertible tablet. The VGA monitor will now be an External Monitor.

[ Looking at the rear of the convertible tablet, start at the Left side.
Vent, USB port, Monitor port. The Monitor port is the VGA port ]

The VGA monitor can be a CRT type, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

Notebook OFF, monitor OFF, connect the VGA monitor to the M275's VGA connector. (Port)
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type, allow it to warm up.

Turn the notebook on.
By the factory default settings, whatever is shown on the convertible tablet's internal monitor, should now be shown on the external monitor.
(VGA monitor)

If not, press, and hold down on the Fn key (On the bottom row of the Keyboard, all the way to the Left), and tap once on the F3 key.
(Top row of Function keys. The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over Key )

No graphics shown on the external monitor? Hold down on the Fn key again, and tap the F3 key again.
There are at least three options available;

1) Convertible tablet's internal monitor - ONLY
2) Convertible tablet, AND external monitor
3) External monitor - ONLY

If graphics are fine on the external monitor, you have a problem with the video cable, and/or the screen Inverter. At this time we will bypass the LCD screen, and come back to it.

At the bottom/middle of the tablet's LCD screen, is the Hinge. The Hinge Cover is 'T shaped', and has one single Philips screw holding it on.
If you remove the screw, and the Hinge Cover, you will see two wire harnesses.
One Black, the other White.

See that these two cables are plugged in tightly to the connector.

After checking this step come back in a Comment, and state your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ Additionally;
Here is the Service Manual (Free) for the Gateway M275 Convertible Tablet,

Where it states - Gateway 400, go down to the second line, and across to M275. Left-click on M275.

Dear Sir/Madam, I have an Acer Aspire 5735-642G25Mn laptop and I don't know how to connect it to my TV (Sony KDL55NX810). Could you please advise me on how to do this. Thank you. Regards, Erik


The video output on your laptop uses a VGA port, and the video in on the tv uses HDMI. You cannot plug one directly into the other, you will need to buy a special VGA to HDMI converter (NOT just a plain VGA to HDMI cable, you need a converter to change the analogue VGA signal to a digital HDMI one). Something like this:

Naturally you will also need a VGA and an HDMI cable to connect everything up.

I wANT TO CONNET MY LAPTOP TO MY CRT TV


What you need:
This is hard to define initially as there are so many ways to achieve this depending on what type of television you have and what video outputs your computer offers. You may also find that you only want to attach the stereo, and leave the TV disconnected, or vice versa.

.HDMI - High Definition Multimedia Interface: Ideally we will all have an HDMI connection on both our television and video card, but most likely don’t have it on either. Many new LCD screen and Plasma displays offer this mother of connections. They are also becoming a little more popular on Video cards. This will give you the highest quality signal. This format can also carry audio. This is very easy to connect from one device to another. It offers the same video quality as a DVI.

here are some tips that will help
Computer has HDMI and TV has HDMI – Use HDMI
Computer has DVI and TV has DVI – Use DVI
Computer has DVI and TV has VGA – Use VGA + Adaptor
Computer has VGA and TV has VGA – Use VGA
Computer has S-Video and TV has S-Video – Use S-Video
Computer has RCA and TV has RCA – Use RCA
Computer has S-Video and TV has RCA – Use RCA with adaptor
Computer has RCA and TV has S-Video – Use RCA with adaptor
