There should be a "Fn' Button on your keyboard on your laptop, Try holding that button and pressing F4 which should have a 2 symbols separated by a "/".

If that doesn't work what kind of laptop do you have?

If your tv has a VGA socket suitable for a computer then all you require is to set your laptop resolution to suit your tv screen and a VGA plug to plug lead and you're watching video's.

I have a acer extensa 4230 and wanna watch download movies on tv


You should be able to connect using vga if the TV has a vga input. Once it is hooked up you can toggle the display using the key combination fn+f5.

How to play movies from computer on tv?


if your tv has vga in, then you need a vga to vga cable (like a screen wire) then change the resolution in the settings of windows (put 800X640 resolution before you plug tv so that you can know what is supported)

if it doesent then you cant do anything other than buying a video card with hdmi or dvi (with a dvi to hdmi) with a hdmi cable then plug it in (will auto detect)

Watch laptop movies on TV?


What you would need is a VGA to RCA converter cable. Something like this. Once hooked up, use your Fn key combination to switch the view from the internal monitor on the laptop to the external monitor, now your TV.
