Laptop screen as tv monitor

I want to use the laptop as a tv monitor, I have a video adapter and video capturing software, but the screen options do not support tv/monitor mode. Is there any way to change this?

    Thank you all for trying to help. I am not trying to connect a second monitor, what I am trying to do is use only the laptop screen as a monitor. This is why I got the video capture software and a USB video adapter. All the drivers are up to date, all connections are right, the exact same setup is working on other people's laptops but not on mine. Changing the screen resolution did not make a difference, I tried that because someone suggested that my adapter won't give signal to an HD screen.
    I'll try to look into the chipset, as the laptop recognises the device (usb adapter), it just doesn't see what is being sent.

SOURCE: dual or mirror monitors

Their is a button located on the 1-9 keys, it looks like a little monitor. Maybe 2 monitors.

Hold down your FN key (Function) and press that button, that will turn on the svga connector. Also if you press it again it should keep both monitors on, and again will switch back to only the LCD.

SOURCE: Laptop monitor problem

sounds like the inverter has gone out or backlight of the laptop has gone out.

you would normally see a logo or something when you removed the TV from it, you can boot dual lcd with laptop on and TV. so i doubt something is turned off.

when hitting FN and F5 usually take about 3 sec to refresh the screen. but looks like the LCD screen on the laptop has failed and need to be replaced or the Backlight or Inverter has to be replaced.

SOURCE: Black screen- laptop only works with external monitor

The fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

If your Dell has a S-video output it could connect to a TV or a video device, which allows for a TV option.

How to connect dish tv to my laptop? It has inbuilt tv tuner.


Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV separately.

Things You'll Need

HDMI cable

USB-to-HDMI adapter

OR

S-video cable

Audio cables

HDMI Connection

Turn on your Lenovo laptop and HDMI-enabled TV.

Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has these ports. If you have a ThinkPad or other Lenovo model, connect a USB-to-HDMI adapter to your HDMI cable, then plug the USB end of the adapter into any USB port.

Press the "FN" and "F7" keys on your keyboard. This will switch the laptop's display to the TV. You can then use your TV screen as a monitor or use the laptop's DVD drive to watch movies on your TV.

S-Video Connection

Turn off your laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV on the other.

Plug audio cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of the audio cables into your TV.

Turn on the laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop screen, then select "Properties."

Click the "Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option, depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option in any version.

Click on the option that suits your system, such as "TV" or "LCD." Click "Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click "OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to the external screen.

Ho do i connect my laptop to my flat screen samsung tv


There are 3 ways ways to do this from the left side of the laptop.

1) S-Video-out jack [Connects an optional S-Video device such as a television, VCR, camcorder, overhead projector, or video capture card.]

2) External monitor port [Connects an external VGA monitor or projector.]

3) HDMI port (select models only) [Connects an optional video or audio device such as a high definition television, set-top box, DVD player, or any compatible digital or audio component.]

Your TV will have one of those interfaces. You just need to look at your user manuals for both the Laptop and TV

Can i connect my acer aspire 4730z to my television so i can watch dvds


Yes of course.
First of all you will need to identify the available input ports on your TV. An RCA port is generally standard nowadays and it consists of a red, a white and yellow coloured reception ports (the colours may differ between tvs, i.e black instead of red). The red and white are for stero sound and the yellow is for video.
Modern TV systems also have a VGA adapter which is small flat port like the ones on a computer screen. This is usually blue.
A third option is an S-Video port, which is round in shape.

To connect your laptop using the RCA port, you will need an S-Video to RCA converter. You connect the S-Video to the port on your latptop, and through the converter to the RCA yellow port on your TV. For sound you will use another cable that connects to the headphone jack on your laptop and then splits to a white and a red cable to connect to your TV.

If you have VGA port on your TV, then connect the VGA port on your laptop to the VGA port on your TV. No converters needed. For sound you will use the same approach as above.

To use the third option you will need to have an s-video out port on your laptop and you will connect it directly to your TV s-video port. For sound, again you will use the approach as the rca solution.

Then, using your remote control, select the AV mode or depending on your TV select the PC or VGA mode.

Finally, to transfer the video from your laptop to your TV press and hold the Fn key on your laptop's keyboard and then the F7 or F9 key. (It has s small TV icon on it).

That's it!

nicolasiac
