1. Get an RGB cable.
2. Plug one end of the cable to the laptop VGA/RGB port.
3. Plug the other end of the cable to the RGB/PC input port of the TV.
4. Select the output of the laptop to the VGA/RGB port.
5. Press the Video button (usually with a sign of an arrow inside a circle) and choose PC.
Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer
or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of
the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the
computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI
card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner
card supports component video.
Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you
want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you
have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the
DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your
computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV.
If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the
"Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the
computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end
of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your
computer in Step 2).
Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer
monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the
screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television
viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the
contents of the TV on your computer.
In order to connect your laptop to your TV using RGB, you need an RGB adapter. RGB is also known as component video; it breaks up a video signal into red, green and blue. laptops do not have RGB outputs. However, many laptops have VGA, DVI or HDMI outputs. An RGB adapter connects the single VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable to an RGB cable, which is actually three different cables tied together.
1. Connect either the VGA, DVI or HDMI (in the order of increasing video quality) cable to the VGA, DVI or HDMI port on your laptop, depending on what is available.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the side of the RGB adapter with the single input.
3. Connect the RGB cables to the red, green and blue ports on the other side of the RGB adapter.
4. Connect the other end of the RGB cables to an available component input on the back of the TV.
5. Tune the TV to the component video input you used through your television's menu.
6. Turn on your laptop. The laptop should now display on your TV screen.
If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.
However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for
you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a
digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also
if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you
can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...
Same problem!!! Inspiron E1505 connected to a year old LG 47" 1080p lcd. My rgb used to work fine, plug and play with my pc. No luck with my laptop though. I've tried setting up duel monitors, updating all(atleast I think all) of my drivers, and rechecking all connections!! Please Help.
