SOURCE: use bigscreen tv for computer moniter

You can order from the dealer the VGA cable adabtor to go between the computer and the TV. Make sure that the display card in the computer is complient to drive the TV monitor. You will have to look in the specs for both to see if this is so.

You will find that the pictures on a TV set will be very poor compared to a dedicated computer monitor. TV sets are really optimized for TV videos and not for computer applications.

SOURCE: VGA and Audio cables connected to PC but no audio through TV

if your tv has vga input there should be a "line in" input very near it. VGA can only get its audio source through a "line in" connecting to the coaxial audio inputs will apply the music stream to a different video input on your tv. your tv has video 1, video 2, vga, and so on, but the vga cannot show video and then audio from the video/audio coaxial inputs. you will need something like a dual male tipped 3.5mm audio connector.

Good luck and pls rate this post

SOURCE: Not to computer saavy so please keep it simple. I

From the looks of the TV manual you have everything right, so it's very odd you're running into this problem.

Have you tried swapping through the sources? I find with one of the TVs we have on display at work that any time I'm having some troubles with it I will change the source from PC to something else, then back to PC.

If that doesn't work then I'd suggest you try reseting the sound settings back to factory default. The instructions are on page 45 of the TV manual. From the TV menu select "Sound", then "Sound Reset", then either "Reset All" or "Reset Sound Mode". I would suggest reseting all.

Last option would be to try using the headphone jack in the side of the TV, though this is a last resort kind of thing since you would have to unplug it every time you wanted to use the cable box.

Hope this helps :)

What kind of cord do I need to connect my laptop so Netflix Movies can play on our T.V.?


Hi Candice,

First, without the model of your TV *and* laptop, no one will be able to give more than general information. It is much better to provide too much info than not enough - to get questions answered quickly here. With that said..

The short answer is that you need a cable that will connect to your note book (most likely either Video [yellow], S-Video, VGA, DVI, Display Port or HDMI) and the TV (most likely RF, Video, S-Video, PC / VGA, HDMI or RGB) Only the HDMI cable will provide sound with video. The others will require either an audio connection from the laptop (probably via a 3.5mm stereo headphone output jack) to the TV (most likely standard "RCA" jacks [red & white] - or settling for the laptop speakers or external amplified speakers plugged into the headphone jack.

If you are unable to locate a cable that has the connector supported by the laptop with a connector offered on the TV, it is likely because it is not possible to connect the two (HDMI to video, etc.) with only a cable. Additional hardware (probably expensive if available) will be needed to up or down convert & split audio to make it compatible.

Take a photo of the jacks offered by your laptop and those on your TV to a respected TV / Audio store / department for additional assistance. Some Radio Shack store employees are very good - and some are just plain horrible. Save your receipts in case it doesn't work to your liking.

Keep in mind that a $50 Roku box will stream Netflix (and a whole lot more) to most TV's "right out of the box" - or by buying $10 HDMI cable online to connect an HDTV. Don't spend 20, 30 or more dollars on an HDMI cable unless you want to pay too much!

I hope this helps and good luck!

Good luck!

How do I connect a laptop to this tv?


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.

Element tv wont see laptop


Connecting laptop VGA port to HDMI port on a TV
VGA to HDMI converter is required to connect a laptop to a TV with HDMI input. The VGA signal does not have an audio component. You need to connect an audio cable from the audio/headphone port on your laptop to the audio connector on your TV. There are HDMI converters with Audio input so you do not need to connect an audio cable to the TV. The audio is connected to the HDMI converter and then passes the audio with the video data to the HDMI cable to HDMI port on the TV. Check out these WEB site for these HDMI converters. http://www.aten.com/products/productItem.php?model_no=vc180 http://www.sybausa.com/productInfo.php?iid=1174 http://www.topbuy.com.au/tbcart/pc/Audio-VGA-to-HDMI-Video-Converter-Box-HD-HDTV1080P-p164633.htm

Can not connect hdml wire to my philips led tv with my dell laptop. what to do


If your laptop does not have a HDMI port then you need a VGA to HDMI converter. Connect this converter to your laptop and then connect it to the TV using a HDMI cable. You also need to connect the audio out port on the laptop to the audio in on the TV. You can get a combined audio input with some HDMI converters.

How can i connect my laptop to my tv?


This will depend on exactly which model of laptop and TV. Look at the TV and determine what ports it has. Then look at the laptop for the same information. You may need to enable the external video ports in the BIOS. Turn off the computer and press F2 repeatedly after turning the unit on. (Some computers use Esc, F1 or F10. There will be a quick splash screen with the information.)

Then it still depends. If your TV and your laptop both have a VGA port, get a VGA M/M cable. (Often this is blue - it's a D-sub 15 pin connector.) This is the simplest option. Turn off the TV and the laptop and connect the cable. Then turn on the TV and set it to the VGA source (look for a button marked Input or Source on the TV or remote). Then turn on the computer; with most modern OS versions, it should set the correct resolution. You will need to enable the external monitor. This will depend on the OS. In Windows 7, right click on the display (where there are no running programs or icons) and select Graphics Properties. Then set the monitors to use the external monitor. Click Apply and then confirm the setting. Note: you'll need to also connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the laptop's headphone jack and the TV's VGA audio input if you want to use the TV speakers.

If your laptop and TV both have an HDMI port, you may be able to use that cable. You'll need to check the details on the TV. Not all TVs will read the computer's signal on the HDMI port. (The data isn't the same as from a set-top box like a Blue-ray player or cable box.)

If the laptop has a DVI port, depending on the TV, try either a VGA to DVI adapter or a DVI to HDMI adapter.

A few older laptops may have have an TV out (looks like S-video) port. In that case, you can connect to a similar port on the TV with a dongle and the cables.

For a TV with only composite or component input and a laptop without a TV out option, you'll need a VGA to composite or a VGA to component converter. These convert the RGB signal from the laptop to one that the TV will understand (component is YPbPr). See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-composite-video/c10000-c11200-c11213.html?sorter=productname-en-asc or http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc for examples.

Please add more information about your laptop and TV for additional help.

Cant get sound from laptop to tv


Just to verify...you've made sure that your headphones jack will play audio in lets say, some headphones, or a set of computer speakers?

However, your T.V. may not recognize audio when using VGA. I say this because if you look at the hook-ups on your T.V., you notice that most sections contain audio and video together, not seperate. If the port is available on your computer, trying using HDMI, the single cord for HDMI carries both sound and video. One last thing you can try with your current set up is find a set of the red and white rca hookups that are independent of any other grouping, in other words excluding the yellow video or any other connections. If you're T.V. wont play the sound in that, then either your headphones jack is messed up or the T.V. just wont recognize it while using VGA.

Does my HP dv9449us has HDMI port? Can I connect it with my tv using this cable or what cables do I need? We have LG LCD tv.


Your laptop does not have a HDMI port. You only have VGA, you have to purchase a VGA to VGA cable VGA is video only interface. So you will need it along with the stereo audio cable
http://pctvcables.com/vga-with-audio-pc-to-tv-cables.html
Note that the stereo audio cable shoulb be connected from the headphones jack on your laptop to the headphones jack on you home theater system if you have one or buy this adapter plug the stereo audio cable coming from the laptop into it and connect it to the stereo audio in (red and white audio)of your tv

What cord do I need to connect my acer notebook to the t.v for netflix


this is pretty easy. Since you're acer aspire doesn't have an HDMI out port, then you're gonna need a VGA cable to connect your acer's video signal to the TV.

This cable should do: http://www.amazon.com/10ft-Resolution-mo...

Now, since it's not HDMI, you won't get audio coming out the TV, only your laptop. But if you want audio out your tv, all you'll need is audio cable, which you can connect to the headphone jack (audio out) and then into the AUDIO IN jack on your tv.

the audio cable: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Unlimited-A...

After this, just hook it up while your tv is turned on, switch to the VGA channel on your tv, and a window should come up on your tv asking you to configure the settings. For audio go to the control panel while the audio cable is hooked up, go to sound settings, and switch the default audio to speakers, or headphones, im not so sure what it is on a netbook

What cable do I need to connect latitude D600 to a hdtv ?


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.
