Sony VAIO VGN-NS230E vga

Look and see if it appears as a monitor in your display settings, if it doesn't, then another good first step would be to update your video card drivers (go to this page and select "Video" then download " Intel Graphics Driver"). If none of this fixes it try the VGA cable with a different PC and see if it works.

Not able to connect sony vaio to projector or LCD TV

The monitor switch on a Sony is usually done by holding down the Fn key and tapping one of the F keys that has the icon of a monitor on it, sometimes you have to tap that key a couple of time for the switch to activate.

How do I connect my sony vaio vgn-fs920 to a tv?

As far as I know I need:
1) to purchase that VGA - S-Video Adapter ?
2) to purchase S-Video Cable itself ?
3) to purchase something like audio AV cables as well ?

Does anybody know where I can buy VGA - S-Video Cable (without Adapters) if it's possible and DO I NEED TO BUY AUDIO CABLE IF I'M GOING TO CONNECT THRU S-VIDEO?

No picture on my Pioneer KUDO LCD TV using s-video

I think your set of wires (A.V cords) may be faulty try riggling them in the plug -you may have to buy new set(they are reasonably cheap) otherwise make the people you bought it off get you another set

Want to connect my Sony vaio VGN-A250 to Sharp 19'' LCD TV

Your laptop will have a VGA output or possibly a S-video out. For the VGA you'll need a standard VGA cable. Plug the cable in to your laptop and the PC input of your TV. If your TV does not have PC input it may have a DVI input. IF it does you can use a VGA/DVI adapter to plug it in. If it doesn't have a DVI input you can use the S-Video output on your laptop with a standard S-video cable. After the connection to your TV is made you will have to toggle alternate display by pressing and holding your [Fn] key and pressing F4, or F5, or another F# key. It's the one that looks like a TV screen. Press once to turn on output, press again to turn off your laptop screen, press again to go back to laptop screen only
