It will depend on the laptop's available external video ports. You can connect a VGA cable from some laptops to the VGA port on the TV. Then plug in a 3.5 mm audio cable from the headphone jack to the PC audio in port. (The audio connection is optional. You could continue using the laptop's speakers.)

Make the connections with the TV and the laptop off. You may need to enter the BIOS to enable the external video port. (It can be turned off to save power. The BIOS is accessed on boot by pressing a key (Esc, F1, Del) noted on the splash screen. For Win8 machines, you'll need to do a special restart.) Then turn on the TV before turning on the computer. The TV monitor should be automatically recognized for resolution and refresh rate. Next, if you have a Windows system, right click on the desktop (pick a spot with no icons or running programs). Click on Screen Resolution (or perhaps Graphics Properties, depending on the OS). Set the monitor to duplicate the screens or send data only to the TV screen.

I'm not sure if the HDMI ports will understand a computer signal. (Not all TVs can interpret the computer's HDMI signal; it is different than that of other set top boxes.) You can try the following connections.
If your laptop has a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable (or adapter) to connect to the TV. Then connect the HDMI cable to HDMI 1 and use the PC audio connection as above.
For an HDMI output, use an HDMI cable. (You will still need the audio cable unless you can reset the audio signal to output on the HDMI port. Go to the Control Panel and then the Hardware and Sounds section. Under Sound, select Manage audio devices. Then in the Playback tab, make the HDMI audio the default.) For Display Port or Thunderbolt outputs on the laptop, you will need a DP to HDMI adapter.

If the HDMI port doesn't understand the computer signal, you'll need to use a converter to go from the computer's output to component video or to VGA. Then connect the converter's output to the appropriate port on the TV.

I hope this helps.

I need to connect pc to tv (digitech video) to watch a dvd from my laptop onto my tv????


Hi,
You can connect your Laptop with your TV in various methods which depends on the type of connectors available in your laptop as well as TV.
1. If your laptop as well as your TV is having HDMI ports, then buy a good HDMI cable and connect them. Simple :)
2. If your laptop as well as your TV is having VGA connect ( similar to that of monitor connector), then get a good quality VGA cable and connect them :) Again Simple.
3. If no matching port is not available as suggested in previous tips, then you have to go for appropriate convertors depending on the connecting ports available in your laptop and TV
I hope this is helpful to you :)

Laptop connected to TV via 23pin cable and setup


You have to connect the laptop to the TV by using the headphone jack on the laptop.
Only then, will the sound be sent over to the TV, and automatically the speakers on the laptop will stop working.

Get a cable to connect them from the headphone jack to an appropriate input on the TV.

Hope I helped,
Tom

Connecting to laptop.


You have two way to connect your laptop to your T.V. using VGA or S-video, Check your T.V. for VGA (which is standered on all Laptops) and S-video which is on most T.V., but not standard on laptops.
You also will need RCA audio to earphone jacks to get audio out of your T.V.


After you connect your laptop to your T.V. press FN and F5.

What type to cable should I buy to connect laptop to tv


Youre laptop would have to have a video card that has a TV-out port... And for that you would have to run a S-Video cable from the TV-out port of your laptop to the S-Video port on your TV... I assume your TV has a S-Video port?
