If it is a CRT you need a scan converter. Some can cost you as little as $29.00 on ebay. Look for VGA to RCA. The low dollar devices are not great quality but do work.

If it is a tv with HDMI you can get a DVI to HDMI converter for $12 to $25 from best buy. If it is a computer with VGA out you can get a vga to hdmi out converter for $27 to $50.

If it is a tv with VGA in you can connect direct from the vga out on your computer directly to the tv. If your computer has DVI out you can get a converter for $12 or less to convert to VGA.

There are so many options that I can go on and on. You really didn't give me much information but I hope I helped you a little..

Gateway lx6200 plugged in vga and hdmi cables to various monitors and no video on startup

Is the video card any good? Chances that all three monitors are defective are slim.

My computer has VGA and my t.v. has HDMI, RCA and Y, Pb, Pr what is the best cheapest way to connect them?

It Depends, if you want to use your TV as a display for your computer the easiest and cheapest way to connect them is to buy a graphics card with HDMI and of course a HDMI cable.(i recommend a graphics card of at least 1024mb) But If you want to use your PC to record from your TV, that, its possible but we talking about more complicated tasks.

What kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?

Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

(A DVI port is a digital video out option with ~21 pins and is usually white.)

I received a Blue Ray as a gift but I don't know if I can connect it to the Emerson LCD LC195EM92. Can it be done? If so, how?

I couldn't find a picture of the inputs for your television model. Look at the inputs on your television and the outputs of your blu-ray. If your TV is high def you should be able to use a HDMI cable from the blu-ray to the television. There should also be other inputs on the television if you can't use HDMI but they won't have as good of a picture as HDMI. You will need to have cables for video, and cables for the audio in some cases.
This link should help you.

Where do I get a cable to connect my laptop pc to the DVI input jack on the Soyo 32" LCD TV?

You will need either a DVI-I to DVI-I cable or a DVI-I to HDMI cable. Your computer should have a DVI-I output or HDMI. You can not directly connect a VGA output to the TV. If needed, you can purchase a VGA to component (Y/Pb/Pr) converter.
