VGA connection from PC to TV --TV says "no signal"

I have a Toshiba Satellite M-55 series laptop and an Element HDTV.
I'm trying to use the TV as a larger monitor and followed the directions from the TV manual. I'm using a VGA connector but get a "no signal" message from the TV. Is there a setting on the computer that needs to be changed regarding the monitor or display output?

On the remote control for your television, there should be a source or input button. Pressing the key repeatedly will switch from cable input to standard tv input, to s-video, or ypbr, or game, or various others. Try doing this and see if the image appears, this awlays works for me. If I am telling you something you have already tried, i am sorry!

What do I need to connect a laptop toshiba Satellite L675D-S7052 to a high definition tv


Assuming what you are trying to do is make your HDTV a giant monitor, your HDTV will need analog video input capability --either a standard d-type VGA connector or RGB composite RCA plugs. The laptop has a d-type VGA output. You will need a cable that has matching end for your laptop and TV....either VGA-to-VGA (d-type) or VGA-to-composite. This will handle the vcideo. You will also need a min stereo-to-mini-stereo cable to connect the audio from the headphone output of the laptop to the HDTV.

If you were using the computer at the time, it may be a cable/plug/socket failure. Try a different cable.

If you were watching a movie, you may want to check your screen saver settings. Try doing what you were doing and see if it disconnects after a specific time (so if your screensaver is set to 10 minutes, does your TV lose signal after 10 minutes?).

What do I need and how do I connect my Toshiba L305 model PSLB8 050302f to my hdtv to view online tv?


I dont believe that laptop has an HDMI port on it. If you have an LCD TV then your TV may have a VGA or DVI input on it. You can connect your laptop to the TV by using a VGA to VGA or VGA to DVI cable. If you your TV doesn't have one of these input ports, then you're not going to get your laptop connected to your TV.

Please double check that your VGA cable is working properly and you have installed the most updated version of video drivers.
Is the TV not even playing the sound? Are you on the right channel? Only try checking the sound on a AV channel by using a headphone jack to AV jack cable.
If you have a S-Video port try connecting with it you can get that cable for a buck in a dollar store.
Hope this helps.

Can i connect toshiba satellite a205 to tv?


Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...
