I want to connect my windows 7 laptop to panasonic tx 32lxd500 to watch youtube


If you laptop has a vga out and the tv has a vga in use that. Better yet some newer laptops have HDMI output . HDMI would be best if available. You may have to go into display setting on laptop to adjust screen size.

How do i resize the screen size when connecting to hdmi to the tv?


You should have a dedicated graphics control panel on your laptop. If you have nVidia graphics it's called NVIDIA Control Panel (right click on desktop). AMD/Radeon graphics is something similar. With HDMI you are quite restricted on resolution, but there will be the option to resize the visible display using the control panel. This is usually achieved by way of arrows in each of the 4 corners of the screen. You adjust the size until an arrow points into each corner respectively.

My screen goes blank whenever I try to watch a TV show online. How do I fix this?


Check the power options in control panel on the start menu and adjust settings. Sounds like the screen is set to go off after a certain time if there is no activity.

Laptop connected to tv. getting sound but no picture


The tv might be on the wrong channel. Some tv remotes have a PC button or source button so press one of those until you get to the right channel. It will depend on what port you plugged the cable into on the tv

HP Laptop to TV


You cannot connect VGA OUT to component IN on your TV without using a converter. However, You can connect VGA OUT from your laptop to VGA in on your TV using a VGA cable just as long as your TV has VGA in. You will need to hold the FUNCTION or FN key on your laptop while press the F4 or F10, whichever F key has the picture of the monitor on it. This will switch your laptop from LCD to external display or both.

Laptop to TV


firstly, you should be getting your connection by going to the control panel and going to display and going to advanced and then the video card tab of your video card. The window asks you to find any external monitors. If this is how you got this far then you have to change your video resolution manually by going back to the first window in display and lowering your resolution to 320 by 240 ( 640 by 480 if that is as low as it goes. Good luck
