Does the laptop recognize that an external device is plugged in when you connect? you should hear a beep and be given options to adjust video settings. look at your keyboard and look for the picture on one of the keys (either number keys or fkeys) for the display change button. you usually have to hit the fn key and then the corresponding key.
iv had issues with this personally going from video out to svideo to rca video and ended up losing color...adapters are funny things. its possible that the adapter itself either doesnt work at all or just doesnt work with your laptop. wouldnt be the first time.

Laptop to old crt TV connection problems


Try going to your computer's display settings and setting up a second screen. There should be 2 pictures of screens. One with a 1 and one with a 2 on them. You can adjust these so that the TV mirrors your computer's screen or sets the TV as a continuation or makes the TV act as your monitor.

Laptop ibm t60 screen white, but works fine with external lcd screen connected by VGA cable


Hi,

Check your laptop's LCD connections. One of the below items may need replacement or you may need to just reinsert them, might be loose.

- LCD cable
- LCD inverter
- LCD itself

NOTE: Most often, the LCD inverter is the culprit.

Hope this helps.

Connect my laptop to tv with a sound


Your computer may have come with cables to do just that. If not, you have options:

For video, I would check your TV inputs to see if it has a VGA port, since that would be the easiest. You can also get VGA to RCA or S-Video converters online as well if your TV does not have a VGA port. Almost all TV's these days have RCA inputs.

For audio, you can get a headphone jack (3.5mm) to RCA converter.

If you can't find the converters at your local electronics store, just google VGA to RCA and headphone to RCA.

Once you have the necessary cables connected to your TV, your computer will recognize that it has been connected to an external video source. I'm not sure, but I think it is either key combination Fn+F6 or F7 to perform a monitor switch. You can also right-click on the desktop and select properties (or personalize in vista). Then switch to the settings tab (or Display settings in vista) and click on the alternate display.

IBM T60 to D-SUB on HD TV


The laptop has a blue 15 pin D-sub video port, connect a video cable from this port to the 15 pin D-sub on the HDTV.
Power up the TV first and then power up the laptop, the video signal will automatically switch to the external video output.
You can toggle between the LCD and TV or both on together by pressing the blue Fn key + the F7 function key several times.

IBM ThinkPad 380Z AV Hook up To Tv


From what I have been reading, the video card in the computer itself MUST support TV out. You can't just use a TV like a computer monitor...it won't work. Check the ads on eBay for those adapter cables and they will say: Check to make sure your video card supports TV out. Go back to eBay and search in the same general area for a computer video to TV adapter or converter box. DO NOT get it confused with the converter box for HDTV. They are about $25-$35 and you will still need the cable adapter you already have, plus another set of just the AV cables. Good luck. Please rate this if it was helpful.
