Depending on the brand, you should hit function, then F7.
Then you can cycle through the modes. Normal (just the laptop screen) , TV (or video) out, and last mode is screen AND TV out.
I used to set up laptops for presentations, and I would hook up a video projector to the VGA out, then the presenter could look at his screen and use the mouse while folks followed him on the big screen behind him.

How do you get a pic to extend desktop to tv monitor using vha to vga cord? I had no problem when I used a s-video hook up. I plugged in the pc and tv using the s-video cable, Choose Display, extended the...


What is occurring is the TV monitor is extending your desktop, where what you were doing in the past is switching between the two. When you plugged the VGA cable in, what occurred is your desktop was increased to account for the size of the TV, and it is acting like a second monitor, If you go into the display properties on your computer you will see a monitor with a 1 and one with a 2. The monitor with a 2 on it is the television, and whatever side it is to the #1 monitor (most likely to the right) if you scroll your mouse to the right of the monitor on your computer you should see it appear on the TV, to play or have a window on your TV, simply click and drag the window into the TV screen Frame, and then maximize the window, this will allow you to continue to work on your computer monitor while the other program runs on the television. It's basically like having two monitors instead of switching between the two

I have msi model ms 6873d i try to connect with tv with vga cable in tv i can only see the backround of the pc why???i change the analysis but the same only backroung i saw in tv.


Your computer is set to extended display. That means that your desktop will extend to the other screen. I think what you want to achieve is to clone your display. That means that you are going to copy what ever you have on your portable system to the TV.
The path to the display settings differs from one OS to another but you have to get to the same option whether it is XP, Vista or Win7.
Right click on the desktop screen then go to Graphics option. Look for an option to clone your display. That should show the same thing on your TV as you have on your portable system

Computer will connect to tv useing push2tv but the only picture it will show is my destop screen and nothing else


I'm not sure there is a problem. Intel WiDi is suppose to send what ever is displayed on your desktop to your TV. Is there a difference between what is shown on your TV and laptop's screen? It could also be that your laptop is set for extended display and the TV is set to the secondary display. Right-click on the desktop and select the Screen Resolution setting. If it is set to Extend then drag a window from your desktop to the right and it should show on your TV.

How do I get my PC video signal to my TV. I s there a way with a wireless router and how will that be connected to my TV. Thank you.


Hi, you can use basic video cables to get your TV to act as a monitor. It depends on which ports your computer and TV have. You can use an S-video cable, a serial cable (with the blue connector that many monitors use), an HDMI cable, or a DVI cable. If both your computer and your TV both have any of these same ports, all you need is the cable and you can have your TV receive video signals from your computer.

Hope that helps!

No picture on tv


Move your mouse over to a empty part of the desktop and press the right mouse button. Select properties.

Make sure that your tv is connected to the computer, that it is turned on, and that it is set for line input on that device.

Select the settings tab. You should see this box appear.

Monitor one is your computer monitor. Monitor 2 is your tv. It should be greyed out. If you move the mouse over to 2 and press the right mouse button make sure the attached is checked off. If not do this right now.

You may have to click on monitor two as well and select the advanced button on this screen. Then look in the settings to turn the tv on (this happens with ATI cards, NVidia cards may have a similar setting as well). Once it is turned on and you hit apply the picture should come on the screen. If you check off extend windows desktop onto this monitor, you will only see the desktop without any icons. Make sure that feature is disabled when you use monitor 2 (by default it is).

This should keep you busy to get it to work. Let me know if you need anymore assistance on this.
