Have you configured the laptop to external screen? F4 is the key I think.

    What a brilliantly quick response. I believe I have. I have set the output to 'Duplicate'; I have tried multiple resolutions; my laptop can detect my TV when I select 'Extend these displays' or 'Show desktop only on 1/2' but it has '1|2 Multiple Monitors' when I select 'Duplicate these displays' (no TV).

    Also, most of the time I am not able to set the resolution on my laptop to what my TV is (1366x768) but sometimes that option is there - I cannot work out why this changes. I have checked that I have the latest drivers (via Device Manager). My TV is LG 32LX2D LCD.

    If it is the wrong ressolution, you will get that as an error or "Out of range". Maybe a lead issue?

SOURCE: Acer notebook VGA problem

Not sure about your model as the header is Dell D600 and you mention Acer but the solution is probably the same. You need to enable the 2nd display - I'm assuming you are running XP. Go to display settings -easiest way is to Right click on the desktop, bringing the display menu and Left click on Properties (bottom entry). Then click on Settings and you should see 2 screens and you will need to enable the 2nd monitor and set up how to display on it. Additionally there is a setting in the BIOS that enables both display outputs.

SOURCE: problems connecting my acer laptop with tv

Sound and picture are two seperate things unless you use an HDMI cable so lets just deal with the picture first
After you do the connection, you need to tell your laptop to present the picture to the TV.
1- On your keyboard, one of your function keys (F1, F2 etc.) will have a short cut for this as a secondary functionality. Check for the function key that has an icon on it that looks like a screen (usually it is f4 or f7). Then hit the key that activates  your secondary functions and the key you just identified. This should activate the VGA output and in most cases will also give you a configruation screen (where you can select it as a secondary display, dual display etc.)
If this short cut doesnt work, you can try this
2- Make sure VGA cable is connected on both ends. Right click your desktop on the computer and select "Properties". On the new dialog, select the last tab "Settings". Click the drop down box under "Display" and you should see the TV as the secon option, select it. Then select the check box that says "Extend my display...", click Apply and OK. This should expand your screen to the TV, you should now be able to drag windows from your laptop's screen to your TV's.
Good luck! (Instructions on option 2 are for XP, if you use Vista let me know and I will look up the terminology for that)

Hi

Make sure your TV does indeed support the resolutions you are trying to use. Some low quality HDMI cables can also be troublesome in higher resolution so try one you are sure to work.

Regarding to the desktop only being extended when using the RGB cables, try bringing up the desktop properties window, select the TV as the primary monitor and select "Use this monitor as Primary monitor". You might have to drag the windows Taskbar over to the other monitor, just rightclick the taskbar, uncheck "Lock the Taskbar" and drag it over to the other monitor.



Hope you find this solution helpful, and please rate it if you do so..

best regards,


Karl

SOURCE: connect my Dell Vostro 1400 laptop to my HDTV via VGA

If the Vostro doesn't read the signal automatically try to switch the signal from internal to external using the Fn (function) key + one of the F keys above the number keys. This key is usually F4 but may be different for yours. Also, make sure the input is correct on the tv....

Can i connect my hp netbook to nec vt 460?


If your netbook has an external VGA port (blue 9-pin connector) you may use the integrated dual display/extended/or external features of your netbook using the necVT460 VGA port. The resolution max supported is 800x600, so make sure you setup ur display at this resolution before attempting to extend the video signal.

I want to use my television as a computer screen. How do I switch the television to proper mode?


Look for a button on the remote or the TV itself labeled Source or Input. This should let you change the input between TV, AV, HDMI (on some TVs), and PC. Just press the button repeatedly or use the up/down arrows.

Before setting the input to PC (VGA), turn off the TV and the computer. Then connect the VGA cable (M-M) and the audio cable (a 3.5 mm M/M cable, if you plan to use the TV speakers) between the two units. Next turn on the TV and set the input to VGA. Then turn on the computer. (This is if you are using the VGA or D Sub 15 connection.) For a desktop, if you do not have another monitor connected, the TV should automatically be detected and the resolution set with any Windows OS (XP and later). However, you may need to reset the resolution and the refresh rate. For Windows 7, right click on the display and choose Screen Resolution.

For a laptop, you may need to enable the video port in the BIOS. Accessing this depends on the manufacturer of the computer motherboard. (Often Esc, F1 or F2 is the key to press after turning on the computer but before the OS loads. This can be tricky to time correctly.)

With a laptop or a desktop with another monitor attached, you will need to tell the computer how to deal with the multiple monitors. (Extend, monitor 1 only (or laptop internal monitor), monitor 2 only (external monitor), or dual display.) For my HP laptop with Win7, I choose Graphics Properties instead of Screen Resolution. There may be a keyboard Fn shortcut to access this.

Some TVs will accept a PC signal on the HDMI port (directly from an HDMI port on the computer or via a DVI to HDMI cable). Not all TVs do this. (Without the model for your TV, I can't confirm if this will work. If it doesn't, it is because of the differences between the PC output signal and that of set top boxes (cable or blu-ray players).

I hope this helps.

My LG tv shows no signal with hdmi cable to hp


First you need to state Mac G5 model and MacOS 10.?,? and whether the connection is VGA or mini-DVI. (I'm at 10.5.8.) I would not be helped by LG model other than to know if it is HD 1080 or 720. I'm going to assume you have MacOS 10.4 or later but most should apply. Apple>>About This Mac>>More info...>>Hardware>>Graphics/Display and read more about the display. Digital connection will give you more info. Close the Info but even with VGA you should be able to go to Apple>>System Preferences...>>Displays and have 2 windows--1 for the built-in and 1 for the external. If the latter is off screen, press Gather Windows. On the external display Turn on Show Displays in Menu Bar. This will let you control Mirroring and Resolution. You will need to pick a resolution your TV can do 1920x1080 1280x720 or possibly less to get started. My MacBook has all of those. I usually do not use mirroring and 1920x1080 gives a good pixel match to my DLP. On the external, turn on overscan if you need to put the menu bar on the screen or off if showing maximum of photos. You need to sync first, then play with other things. -Ken

LG 37LC7D Connect to VGA from a PC


Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.

Thanks for the help.

Lg 42PX4dv PC connection


I think the problem is the screen resolution and size of your pc is not matching the resolution size of your tv or is not compatable at the size you have it on or you may have to change to 4:3 ratio from widescreen. In your manual it will tell you the resolution sizes that you tv uses. You would probably be better also using the VGA to DVI lead, thats if it came with the tv (it does in the UK) as it supports higher wide screen resolution, whereas VGA will only support 1024 x 768 or there abouts.
