How to connect lenovo g575 to tv

I looked up the specs on your computer and it appears that it does not have any AV or HDMI ports. It does however have a VGA or standard monitor port. Some TVs have this port as well. If your TV supports this then all you need is to hook up a standard monitor cable between your laptop and the TV then treat the TV as you would a projector. It is very likely that your laptop will notice the TV immediately and project your screen onto it. If not you can switch screens using on of the function keys across the top of your keyboard. Example FN + F5 on some models.

How do you get laptop screen to show on the tv by a hdmi cord

Connect the HDMI cord to both. Switch to the HDMI input on the TV. Boot the laptop. If you're using Windows and the TV doesn't show the laptop's screen, right click anywhere on the desktop that doesn't have an icon, then select properties. In the tab to the right of the resulting window, you should be able to enable screen mirroring, expansion, or switching.

Some laptops also have a function key set that you press to switch monitor outputs. Look for keys with secondary, alternate color commands on them. It will normally take a set of key presses.

I have Dell Inspiron 2650 and AverMedia AverkeyPlus and Philips 100Hz tv, but I cant get the picture on tv.When pc starts well, but after only on compjute.

There is usually a software control for the VGA port. Look for something that looks like a monitor on the function keys at the top of the keyboard. You will have to hold the "Fn" key down while pressing the F7 or which ever function key has the monitor on it. These take a couple seconds to work, so toggle slowly through the modes. There is usually a mode for monitor only (which is what you have now), one for both VGA port and monitor, and one mode for VGA port only.

Tried projector no work

Connect your projector to your laptop using a VGA cable. Now turn ON your projector and your laptop.

To make your screen projected, look at your function keys (F1 to F12). Look for the icon which looks like a laptop LCD and a TV. It should appear like LCD icon/TV icon. In some model it is in F4 while F3 in Lenovo. Example, you found the icon in F4, just press and hold down the FN key and press F4 to send your desktop image to the projector. This combination is called the "dual monitor" setup which in your case, the second monitor is a digital projector.

Look at the function keys (F1 to F12) in your computer since there is a shortcut key in it. Look for a key with an icon resembling like a TV and a PC Screen with a slash. It's like TV/Monitor icon.

Now with the PC (laptop?) hooked with the TV, (the tv showing no signal), hold down the FN key and press that function key with the TV/Monitor icon.

I have used 15 point vga to connect laptop to my tv so can use tv screen as a monitor, tv screen just stays blank. how do i switch to external monitor?

Look at your functions keys. most common is F3 but sometimes another key, it will have a little monitor on it, or two screens with a slash.
Press your function (fn) button and this key, it should toggle between Laptop monitor, External, both.
(this is assuming you want to clone your monitor, which is what you described).

Pc connected to tv, but only a blue screen shows

Up on your F KEYS is a SYMBOL that looks like a small TV Monitor... HOLD DOWN THE FN (function) key and tap the F key with the monitor.

1. On one click the screen on the computer will go black and you will see the screen now on the TV,

2. On a second click the computer monitor will come back on, and you will also have the TV screen.

4. On a third click you will kill the TV display and end up where you started, with the display on the Computer Monitor only..

Wanting to use tv as monitor with benq a52 v03 joybook

Yes, you need to press the key combination for your laptop to direct the video output through the external VGA port. It varies by laptop, but it usually involves the use of the Function (Fn) key and another key like F4...look for a picture of a screen in the same color as your function key.

Display my laptop on my tv

You can't connect a standard TV to a computer using a VGA cable. If you have it, use the composite (yellow) RCA jack or S-Video from your laptop. As for turning off a laptop monitor, look on the function keys for LCD/CRT or icon for monitor (typically 3, 5, 7, or 8) hold down FN key and press the correct function key.

Hooking up a laptop

You must enable the monitor output. This is a function combination. Look for the key with the diagram of a screen on it. Usually the first pressing turns on the monitor as well as the screen, the second leaves the monitor on and turns off the screen, the third brings it back to standard (screen only).
