Green output from the dvi-b would mean the motherboard is bad cause the connector is directly connected to the motherboard. Motherboard would need to be replaced.

You already tried the cable on another computer and it worked and that would have been the other step to verify the cable. was working.

What adaptor do i need to be able to plug my laptop and internet to my PT-53TW53g panasonic color proj sys


You don't need an adapter if your laptop has a DVI port. Simply connect the laptop's DVI port to the TV's Digital In port and ensure the laptop is outputting a standard 720*480, 1280*720 or 1920*1080 resolution. If your laptop doesn't have a DVI output then you will need a DVI to HDMI converter cable. Connect the HDMI end to the laptop and the DVI end, of the adapter, to the DVI cable.

How to turn on rgb from lap top to tv.


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. INSTRUCTIONS:
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.

Why is the dvi connection not working wih the monitor or do i need a hdmi connection?


On the laptop, did you "enable" video-output to the DVI port?
Most laptops have 3 modes:
* output only to the internal LCD screen
* output only to the external VGA/DVI/HDMI port
* output to both internal and external ports.

What manufacturer of PC laptop?
What model-number?
The key-sequence for choosing the mode depends on which computer you have.

My laptop was one year old last december. my battery stopped charging the same week it became one year and the guarantee expired. having no exta time, i took the laptop to the store 5 days after...


I would strongly suggest the good old battery 'hard reset'...

1.) Turn off laptop
2.) Unplug it from power supply
3.) Hold down the power button for a minute
4.) Plug it back into the power supply
5.) Power it on and wait to see if the battery icon is showing up and charging

This has resolved a few of these ghost battery issues on some of my clients laptops! If that fails, please provide the exact model number of the Gateway laptop and which operating system you're using and we'll see if we can't find another fix.

Hope this helps,
Joe

Over last 3 years screen has become progressively darker, particularly on the left hand side. It's difficult to see. I was thinking about buying a separate monitor, but not sure what cables I would need to...


Sounds like a backlight problem. Backlights can be replaced but it all depends on the make/model of laptop you have. Connecting an external monitor to your laptop also depends on the type of connection you have on the laptop.

Most (if not all) will have a VGA output which requires a standard 15pin VGA cable. Newer laptops might have DVI or Mini-DVI. Some even have HDMI. So ultimately, the type of cable you need really depends on the type(s) of output your laptop is able to display and the types of inputs your monitor supports.

When I plug my lap top into my tv via hdmi cable I get a picture but I do not get any sound. I have a year old LG 52" LCD tv


My MacBook laptop and probably others do not output sound on its mini-DVI connector and thus not into the HDMI adaptor. I would have to use the wired sound output or the optical output--same hole--into the sound system. If you have a DVI-HDMI adaptor, then that is the problem, there is no sound wiring on the DVI side. Same for VGA, which does not have digital video only analog.

Gateway laptop to phillips tv


Hi, there, pleasy clarify the following:
What is your Gateway model? Is your TV an older tube type or a new HDTV? Does it have other input ports besides the standard cable input and the RCA you mentioned? You may be able to use S-Video if your laptop has the output port and so does your old TV. Or if you have a newer laptop that includes DVI and you have an HDTV, then you can use a DVI to HDMI cable which by the way will result in the best image quality.
