Playing a downloaded film with HDMI cable to my TV set Sony Bravia, after 10 minutes the colour on tv set disappear or change. Do I need a certain drive on my computer for HDMI


If it was playing the video fine initially, there should be no reason for that to change. Most likely the video card on the laptop is overheating or dying, which results in the change in colors. I fix laptops at my computer repair shop, and most are HP Pavilion DV6000 and DV9000, and they are notorious for having bad video chips on the motherboards. If it is still under warranty I would back up your data from the hard drive then send it in to HP to have fixed or replaced. If it isn't under warranty I would try to connect your tv using just a VGA cable, and see if the same thing happens. If it does, you have a bad video card. If it doesn't happen then you may still have a bad video card, it's just that the VGA signal isn't as high powered/high resolution so your card doesn't get pushed hard enough to malfunction. Try the VGA cable and let me know how it works.

I can't display my laptop onto my tv.


Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.

With laptops you haver to tell the laptop to use other displays This is usually FN + F5 or FN + F6

For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.

If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.

For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer

If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. Remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that

NVIDIA graphics cards seem to work best in this area.

If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.

Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.

Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.

Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%

Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.

Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.

I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture.

How do i use my computer and pc to tv at the same time


Hello,
Connect the computer to the TV
1. Through an S-Video cable or
2. A VGA cable,
depending on the input option of you TV, and the output options of your computer.
Then from Graphic properties, extend your desktop to a TV if S-Video, or to a second monitor if VGA cable. For older TVs resolution on computer screen may have to be set to 800x600.
Hope it helps.

Problems with Lenovo 3000N200 0769-EAG tv-out


My friend, the easiest and by far the best way I have seen is to set the advance timings on your laptop just right and use a vga to scart cable.

Restart your Laptop to recognize again your TV on the system.

Connecting laptop to lcd


You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).

I'd like to connect my HP laptop to Yamaha 663 receiver


Connect your S-video output from the computer to an empty S-video input on the receiver. Connect your speaker output from computer to analog audio input on the receiver using a 1/8" stereo connector to RCA patch cable. You may have to set your computer to output video to the S-video jack, consult your HP documentation for instructions.
