HP pavilion dv4000 hooking it up to a TV

Hello
I have an HP Pavilion dv4000 notebook! I tried to hook it up on my TV via S-video cable and did Fn + F4 combination. I also switched my tv’s channel to a video (Av). When I did Fn + F4, my notebook’s screen went black and blank for couple seconds then nothing changed. If I have to do it through BIOS how can I do it ? Would reducing the resolution and connecting it to a tv (before turning the notebook on) work ? I hooked it up then turned my laptop on but it didn’t work too ? What should I do

Unable to view pc on tv


With the dv4000, you have the option of using the VGA output (blue connector/port on the side of the laptop), or the S-video output (round connector/port next to the VGA port). Once you have the cable plugged in to the laptop and the TV, press Fn + F7to switch from the laptop screen to the external monitor.

I hope this helps you.

Hooking up my hp laptop to a sony trinitron tv


Hello,


Let me explain on how to connect the TV to HP notebook.

There are two ways to connect the TV to the notebook. One is with the S-Video cable and another one is HDMI cable. (If you computer had HDMI port)

Connecting notebook and TV with S-video cable:

You need to get the Svideo cable and connect it to the notebook Svideo port to TV Svideo port and press Fn+ F4 to get the notebook display on the TV.

For the first time pressing the Fn+F4 keys, you will get the display on the TV and there will be no display on the Notebook.

If you press the Fn+F4 for second time, you will get display back to the notebook and Tv screen becomes blank.

By pressing the same keys again will show the display on both the screen.

Samething connecting with the HDMI cable, if your computer had HDMI port.

If you won't get the display on the external screen even after following the correct process, then once you need to reinstall the display driver.

If the issue persists, then you have to check with another cable.

Note: No need to install any software on the notebook to connect the TV to the notebook.

Watch laptop movies on TV?


What you would need is a VGA to RCA converter cable. Something like this. Once hooked up, use your Fn key combination to switch the view from the internal monitor on the laptop to the external monitor, now your TV.
