To connect your laptop to your tv you will require a connector wich would first convert your vga to svideo
you can get this converter at any good electronics store
this site will give you the type of connection required check your tv for the connections it will accept and choose the right cable

How do i hook lap top up


Most Laptops have a VGA output port. You would just hook this to the VGA input of the TV for video (picture).
You would then need to hook an audio cable from the laptops headphone jack to the TV's VGA's Audio Input jack.
Newer laptops have a HDMI output so that is easier and can hook directly to the TV's HDMI input for both video and audio.

HOW CAN I HOOK THE Panasonic TH-42PX75U TO THE VGA OUTPUT ON MY COMPUTER?


If your computer has an HDMI socket, all you need is an HDMI cable. If not you need a VGA cable (the blue cable that usually connects a computer to it's monitor. One end goes into the socket on your TV marked VGA or PC. the other end goes into the monitor output on your computer. if you have a laptop, there will be a vga socket (usually blue inlay in the socket) on the side or back. you will then need to set up the second screen in Control panel, display settings. If using the VGA cable, you will need to run an audio cable from the speaker/headphone socket of your computer to your tv (there will be a 3.5mm jack near the VGA socket) or to your audio receiver.
Good luck.

Trying to hook up laptop with haier tv using vga


Dod you use HOTKEYS on the laptop to tell it to send the signal the VGA outlet of the laptop? The hotkeys function can be set to turn off the laptop screen and only have external monitor to be the only display or it can be set to have both of them on.
