You need to identify which audio input is active when you select the VGA input from the TV. Some TVs use RCA input jacks, and others use the standard headphone jack, so you may have to try an adapter.

SOURCE: vga audio in

VGA does not provide sound, only video signal.
to get sound, you need to run a signal from the audio output of the computer (1/8" mini) to the audio in of the TV (RCA).

I have exactly the same problem with my Sony Vaio. It seems to be a problem with the graphic board. Samsung needs a special signal over vga to unlock the PC-mode. There are only few Laptop graphic boards which send this signal on startup.

I haven't found a solution yet. But you may try to get a newer driver from:

Please tell me it worked out for you.

SOURCE: Akai 32LW7 _connection to Laptop

Hi,

I believe that you have connected it correctly since the Windows log-on is displayed. It may be that the Screen Resolution of your desktop is a bit high and therefore would have to be lowered to match the capacity of the Akai 32LW7. Pls try 1366 x 768 pixels or lower. You could also lower the laptop's screen refresh rate. Additionally, some laptops have to be toggled to activate external VGA by pressing Fn + F? keys to cycle through LCD, LCD + external, External only. The F? key would be the one with the monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Laptop to old crt TV connection problems


Try going to your computer's display settings and setting up a second screen. There should be 2 pictures of screens. One with a 1 and one with a 2 on them. You can adjust these so that the TV mirrors your computer's screen or sets the TV as a continuation or makes the TV act as your monitor.

How can i connect my Funai 32 HDTV to my home computer?


Depends entirely on the kind of video outputs on the PC and inputs on your Funai. From what I have gathered Funai does have PC (vga) input so connecting a VGA cable should not be difficult. If, like my pc, you do not have a vga output on your PC then you need an adapter from a place called dx.com. Further information like exact model of your motherboard or branded PC and exact model number of Funai TV would make for a perfect solution.

What cable do I need connect my Emerson EWL20D6 to my laptop?


This TV can't understand a laptop signal directly (for most laptops - there are some computers that have a TV out option). The EWL20D6 has S-video, component and composite video inputs. Your best picture will be to get a VGA (RGB) to Component Video (YPbPr) converter with a 3.5 mm to RCA L/R audio cable. See this page for some idea of the available converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . The VGA to component video cable is meant for projectors that can interpret the RGB signal, not TVs.

If your laptop has an HDMI port, you will need a different type of converter.

Once you have the correct hardware, you will need to make sure that the external video port is active on your laptop. For some machines, you may need to enable this in the BIOS first (press Esc, F1, F2 or F10 (depending on the computer) on bootup to get to the BIOS - it may take a few tries to time it correctly). Then turn off the TV and computer before connecting the cables. Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input before turning on the laptop. Then set the laptop to send the video signal to the external monitor. (On my Win7 laptop, I right-click on the Desktop and select Graphic Properties. Then set the desired display (laptop screen, external monitor, both) and click Apply. Then press OK when you see the confirmation box on the now active screen.)

The Emerson EWL20D6 was manufactured by Funai for the Emerson line. Thus the manual is available here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . Manuals are listed in alphabetical order. (If you use the search function, leave off the brand name.) The direct link to the manual is: http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/EWL20D6.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Hi I'm trying to connect my laptop to play photographs through the TV screen using windows XP. No success at the moment. How do I connect up please? And can i get a manual for the TV anywhere...


For making the physical connection between PC and TV first we need video cable.
PC has S-Video port that should be connect to the S-Video input of your TV using S-Video cable.
Connect the computer to the TV using VGA ports or via the DVI to HDMI cable. These Macs need Adapter for a VGA cable.
RCA for audio, connect RCA to your PC and red and white colored sockets of RCA cable to TV (left audio-white, right audio-red).
In your PC open the Display Settings and activate output to the TV screen.
In your TV open the menu from that open the External inputs. And change the video to HDMI depends on the connection.
You can also change the screen resolution of your TV using the Personalize and Display Settings options in your Control Panel on PC.

After giving the connections you can watch the movies and everything is running on laptop on TV.

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

How to connect my laptop to TV


Hello
To connect your TV with laptop, you have to buy one VGA to VGA connector cable. Connect this cable to computers' VGA out ot TVs VGA in. Now you have set the computer to TV, in case of video only. To get audio from your TV, you have to connect the audio out of the computer ot audio in of the TV, which can be located very near to the VGA socket on the back side of your TV,OK.

Hi, I am trying to connect my laptop to my TV using VGA (MALE) to VGA (MALE) cable. I am able to see black lines on the TV with noise.How can i correct this ?


You didn't say, is the TV HDTV??
From Windows help menu, press F1, type in "VGA connection" I found this:

Why can't I hear audio when I connect my computer to an HDTV?

VGA, DVI, and component video cables do not support audio signals. HDMI cables do support audio signals, but not all HDMI-enabled video cards support audio. If your HDTV has an audio input, you might be able to connect a separate audio cable from your computer's sound card directly to the TV. Otherwise, you'll need to connect the audio signal to a different output device, such as external computer speakers or your home stereo system. For more information about sound cards, see Sound cards: frequently asked questions.


From Wikipedia.org search VGA connection:
1.
Video Graphics Array (VGA) refers specifically to the display hardware first introduced with the IBM PS/2 line of computers in 1987,[1] but through its widespread adoption has also come to mean either an analog computer display standard, the 15-pin D-subminiature VGA connector or the 640×480 resolution itself. While this resolution was superseded in the personal computer market in the 1990s, it is becoming a popular resolution on mobile devices.[2]
VGA was the last graphical standard introduced by IBM that the majority of PC clone manufacturers conformed to, making it today (as of 2010[update]) the lowest common denominator that all PC graphics hardware can be expected to implement without device-specific driver software.[citation needed] For example, the Microsoft Windows splash screen appears while the machine is still operating in VGA mode, which is the reason that this screen always appears in reduced resolution and color depth.
VGA was officially superseded by IBM's Extended Graphics Array (XGA) standard, but in reality it was superseded by numerous slightly different extensions to VGA made by clone manufacturers that came to be known collectively as Super VGA.

2.
The same VGA cable can be used with a variety of supported VGA resolutions, ranging from 640x400px @70 Hz (24 MHz of signal bandwidth) to 1280x1024px @85 Hz (160 MHz) and up to 2048x1536px @85 Hz (388 MHz). There are no standards defining the quality required for each resolution, but higher-quality cables typically contain coaxial wiring and insulation which make them thicker. A quality cable should not suffer from signal crosstalk which occurs when the signals in one wire induce unwanted currents in adjacent wires, ghosting which occurs when impedance mismatches cause signals to be reflected (note that ghosting with long cables may not be the fault of the cable but may instead be caused by equipment with incorrect termination or by use of passive splitters), and other signal degradation effects; shorter VGA cables are less likely to introduce significant degradation. Some higher-end monitors and video cards featured 5 separate BNC connectors for RGBHV signal, allowing highest quality connection using five 75 Ohm coaxial cables.

I hope this helps, I find the sales reps at Best Buy very helpful.
