If you right click on the desktop and choose properties, this should bring up Display Properties. The settings tab should give you the option to change your video output device to TV.

No display upon turn on


Did you press and hold the FN function key plus the key that toggles the display? In your case it might be the FN+F8 if F8 is the key that toggles the display.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the video shows on the external monitor that proves your video card is ok, ,but your lcd screen is bad. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.


If your video card is bad you will not see anything on the laptop's lcd screen or the external monitor.

How to connect a laptop to tv


The laptop has an additional connection for some type of external display. The connection will be a VGA Port, S-Video Port or an HDMI Port. The tv will need the same type of port as the laptop so that you can connect a cable between the two of them. If the connections are not the same, you will need some type of converter that will go between them to make them think they are the same.

Once you connect the two with a cable, take the tv's remote and press Select Input, then select the Input Source where the tv is to receive the signal (PC, S-Video, HDMI). Reboot the laptop and the video should appear on the tv.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Usually one of the function buttons F5-F8 etc together with the FN button will toggle through from lcd to tv/external monitor to both.

Is the cable S-Video or does your tv accept a dvi or vga input?
Do you connect using the s-video output on the laptop or the standard external monitor port?
