Connecting latop to tv?

How do i connect my laptop to my tv without using hdmi?i have an asus laptop with hdmi output and it also has an output for a monitor. As my tv doesn't support hmdi but does support s-video, component and composite, i decided to purchase a vga to svideo/composite cord. I have plugged this into my monitor out put and tried connecting it to both s-video and composite inputs on my tv but neither works. My laptop does not even recognise that it is attached to the tv.
Does this mean my laptop doesn't have the correct video card for vga output? Or does it mean my vga to s-video converter is faulty? Or is there something else wrong.
Sorry if this doesn't make sense (not real great with computers) :p Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

*I have succesfully connected it a desktop pc monitor though.*

How to connect asus p1801-t to tv ?


This PC is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card. This means if your TV has an HDMI input connector you can directly connect the pc to the Tv with an HDMI cable and select the corresponding graphics monitor connection in the Display properties. Alternatively if your tv has only got a VGA input that can also be used from the PC and you can connect the speaker or headphone audio output to the audio input of the TV with a suitable 3.5 headphone to RCA adapter.

Want Connect to My Laptop HDMI Output


If your TV has no HDMI input to connect with your laptop's HDMI output, surely you need a converter. If the laptop have A/V output, and the TV too have an A/V input, you can connect in between, using an AV cord. google.com/+GopakumarGopalan

How to connect an asus transformer to a phillips picopix 2055 projector ?


you cant, directly at least... there are no drivers for android to run this projector. since it is only USB, you cannot convert the hdmi to usb...

you could use your computer as a middle man, without hdmi input on your pc there would be video lag and your better off just using your pc.

you could return the picopix you have and get the PPX2480 version, that is brighter and also has hdmi input which you could get a mini-hdmi to hdmi cable and use it directly.

hope that helps

What's your problem?can not hook up lap top to tv


Connecting your laptop to your TV will require a HDMI cable. Attach the cable to the HDMI ports on the latop and TV, then change the source input from your TV to HDMI and your TV will now display your laptop.

How do i connect my laptop to my dvd player using hdmi cable


The HDMI connector at your laptop is output. The HDMI connector at the DVD player is an output also. So it's out of the question to connect two outputs, you may want to use the HDMI output from the dvd player to be connected at a tv or screen with HDMI input.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
