There isn't much you can do if you are using your laptop on your lap, or moving it around a lot in general. If it is stationary you could always try and prop something under the connection (wire) right at the back/side of the laptop. Just enough to add a little tension to the fitting... too much could ruin your motherboard so be careful.

How do I get my dell 20 insirpron to connect to my tv.


It depends what features your Dell 20 Inspiron has and it also depends what features your TV has.

In general there's usually a couple ways to connect your computer/laptop to the TV.
1. VGA cables - red/white/yellow connects to the corresponding red/white/yellow ports at the back or side of the TV while the serial port is connected to the computer.
2. HDMI cable - both sides are identical so as long as HDMI ports are available in both the laptop and TV then it will work.

Once it is connected, it will appear as a display when you go to Screen Resolution settings. (Right click anywhere on your desktop and select Screen Resolution).

Toshiba satellite C855D-S5105 HDMI


For the Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5105, HDMI is an option.

If present, believe it to be on the Left side, same as the VGA port.

[General example of VGA connector (Port), and VGA Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Note* Color is not always Blue. Scroll down a little for VGA Cable example ]

User Manual states plug external monitor device into laptop, then turn external monitor device on.
External monitor device should automatically be seen by laptop.

If not press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time, tap on the F4 key until the display option you want is shown. Then press the Enter key.

Touchscreen?
That requires a knowledge of Windows 8, which I do not have a full understanding of yet. The User Interface of Windows 8.

It isn't stated by Toshiba, (At least that I could find), as to if the HDMI port; is just that. An HDMI port, or a Mini-Port HDMI port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:HDMI_Connector.jpg

There are HDMI adapters, and HDMI cables; that adapt from regular HDMI to Mini-Port HDMI.

There are adapters that connect to a VGA port, and convert to an HDMI port.

Tv was connected via HDMI cable to my laptop and the TV turned off when the charger of the laptop was plugged in


Definately a short in one of the power sources. Maybe the laptop charger has a short putting to much voltage on the hdmi port and the tv has a safety feature to power off so no damage can be done to the tv. Also, maybe the sudden change in voltage could cause the tv to power down to avoid damage.

What type of cable do I get to connect presario 900 laptop to TV?the


Hi,

You can use either an HDMI cable or a VGA cable to connect your computer to your TV. Your computer has both HDMI and VGA ports. You can use either ports but you cannot use both or else your video card will crash.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! have a nice day!

How to connect blu ray player hdmi to my laptop


1) Look at your laptop computer to see if you have an HDMI cable port. This port is roughly half an inch wide and provides both the HD audio and video signal. If you don't, you are going to use a DVI port on the laptop. This is the same port you use to connect monitors to your computer.

2) Plug the DVI-to-HDMI adapter into the DVI port on the laptop with the Blu-ray player. If you have an HDMI port on your laptop, you can skip this step.

3) Connect an HDMI cable to the HDMI end of the adapter. If you have an HDMI port, plug the cable directly into the HDMI port.

4) Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the HD television. Power on your television, press the "Input" button and select "HDMI." You can now see the contents from your Blu-ray player on the TV.


Thanks for rating

Good luck

Do the HDMI ports support audio or do I need to go buy optical cables to use them on my STR-DG510


The STR-DG510 carries video only over the HDMI port. Technically, this is a "pass-thru" port. Most older receivers are engineered to operate this way. Why? I don't know. You MUST provide the audio connection using a separate TOSLINK or RCA cable from the program source to the receiver while your video is connected via the HDMI port.

Stick to IT work, MSOFT IT pro. I got smart and bailed out being an IT guru. I got better things to do than screw around with the idiotic nonsense of Microsoft operating systems and applications being a thing of fashion rather than being useful and practical.
