Hi,

You have to enable extended display on your laptop. To do this, look for the "function" or "FN" key on your laptop keyboard - hold this down while pressing once on the key that looks like a monitor/screen on the keyboard.

How to connect to laptop or tv


You can go to The Source(radio shack) or Walmart and purchase a VGA with audio plug and plug it from your VGA out located on the side of your laptop and the audio(headphone jack).Then, the other end will plug into the matching VGA(PC) plug-in on your tv and the audio jack,which will be located next to the PC plug.Then you will go to your menu of the TV,select video or video source and choose PC.If it does`nt show a picture,you may need to reboot your laptop once for the drivers to be loaded into your windows operating system.Please let me know if successful...good luck :)

Have wireless internet need to connect tv to hp laptop


If its portability and convenience you're wanting to achieve you can connect your tv to your laptop via a hdmi or vga pc to tv device such as the one below.


wireless-internet-need-connect-tv-hp-h3kz2pmtsa0m5tqtbi05zsqk-5-0_1.jpg Or you could set your close lid settings to "do nothing" when lid is closed" and set it to "never sleep" when connected to AC power and use either an hdmi cable or male vga to male vga cable to connect to your tv. You will need a wireless keyboard and wireless mouse because u will no longer need to physically access your laptop. Make sure your tv input selection is correct. For example, hdmi 1, computer, vga, and etc.

My 65" samsung turns off when i connect my laptop


Hi Spence,
Is the TV set to "VGA"? If the TV does not detect a signal, it won't stay on, only go to a sleep mode. Make sure the cable is securely connected to the TV as well. You may go to the settings and check the power saver settings, but I don't think this has anything to do with it, I only offer it as another avenue to pursue.
Best luck

I have a inspiron1300,and i wondered if it is possibe to connect it to my philips hdready tv.am sure which cable to use


You never mentioned what model Philips TV you have, however I've researched several and most seem to have a VGA video port in the back of them. If you have one of these (15 pin D connector) on the back of your TV you should be able to purchase a corresponding VGA cable (you'll want female pins on one side of the cable and male pins on the other side) and plug one side into the VGA port on your laptop and the other cable into the TV. Then use your TV remote to select that input. Should work fine!
See item 8 in the attached user guide link to see what I'm talking about. http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/4/42pfl3403_98/42pfl3403_98_qsg_eng.pdf
I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck! If I can help you further, please let me know.

I am trying to connect an acer one notebook to a beko 32" flatscreen and everytime i plug the vga lead in the laptop screen goes black an the tv says no signal,,what am i doing wrong??


It could be a no. of things:

- Wrong input selected via the TV
- The VGA input on the TV is turned off
- Problem with the VGA cord
- Problem with either VGA port

there the basics, if there all great and it's still no working, try setting your Computer display to EXTEND rather then projector only, then play around with your graphic output settings.

UPDATE all your Drivers and check all your cables. PLUG IN YOUR LAPTOP, yes it will make a difference to the way the graphics card operates.

Hope this helps.

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.

Dell w2600 wont turn


Same problem, this is my solution. The system will start everytime if starting from power off one starts from sleep. Thus the trick is to use sleep mode to shut it down. I do not use the sleep function on the remote (it would be worth a try, let me know if you do that), but rather I have chose VGA as the entry signal ad have hooked the TV to my PC, and then I put the PC in sleep mode. The TV will do the same. When it is in sleep mode through the PC, the system cvomes back to life if the remote from the cable is used to change channels.

Polaroid flm-3232 locked or in sleep mode? Is that possible


Hi there!

I work in an electronics store and I've come across this problem before. The only solution that has ever worked for the people who call in or come to see us is pretty simple. You need to unplug your PC from the TV (if you haven't already done so), turn the TV on by using the "channel +" button. Some TV's when turned off at the wall will not turn back on again unless you press the channel + button. Give it a go and see what happens. Let me know if you need more help.

Also, it sounds like your laptop may not have been supported due to the wrong resolution being outputted through your VGA connection. When you get your TV turned on again I'll see if I can help you get them to work together,

Cheers and good luck!

Abby.

Monitor "Goes to sleep"


Have you tried to go in thru the control panel and select "display"? From here you can go to the screen saver section and adjust the time it takes for the screen to cut out. Of course you want to use a monitor that you can read before you set up both of your screens.. See if that helps....
