Trying to get picture from laptop on tv

Hello. We are not very computer savvy. We bought a cable that connects to our laptop and tv but the picture only comes through when the computer boots up and shows the windows logo, Is there a setting that needs to be changed. We have an acer laptop and a dynex monitor replacement cable? Thank you for taking the time to help

Sincerely, confused :(

First enter in the laptop setup, and find the video option, there you will have something like this:
onboard, extern, both (choose both)
turn off the tv.
boot up windows, right click desktop, properties, choose configuration tab, there wil be two screen, one for monitor the other for tv.
on tv side choose 640x480 (you can try higher resolutions later).
reboot and turn on tv.

worked here.

The first thing you can try is, connect the LCD Tv to another computer with the HDMI cable and verify it's working that way on the other pc. If it works, then the HDMI port on the Laptop might have a problem which will require Service. Troubleshooting and TIY will not fix the issue.

If the same LCD TV doesn't work on another computer, then double-check the cable and the connection. You'll be able to narrow down to the culprit and may need another LCT TV.
Is the LCD TV still working with other connections? like with your DVD Player or Cable.

Let me know the outcome.

Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

You will need a second cable from the headphone socket on the laptop to the audio in on the tv.if it doesn't have an audio in then you need a scart to 3.5mm stereo jack lead to hear sound.

Which cables have you attached to your TV (the video and audio)?
Does the TV has left & right audio inputs (RCA connectors)?

When you attach a headphone to the laptop, the speakers on the laptop switch off and the sounds divert to the headphones. Try and connect a cable (stereo) from the headphone outlet on the laptop to the audio stereo inputs on the TV.

Connecting Laptop to LCD



the following connections available to connect ur computer to an TV:

S-Video output: If you have video card(external u will have this), you require an s-video cable and you connect s-video out of your computer to the s-video int of our TV.

TV-OUT: if you have video card(external u wil have this) you you require an coxial cable and you have to connect TV-out of your computer to TV-IN of our TV(it is place where cable connection goes from your cable operator)

DVI-D: if you have video card(external u will have this) you require an DVI-D cable you haveto connect DVI-D out of your computer(a white 15-pin port which looks like VGA port) ....

VGA: it is the port on your computer which is only used to connect to your computer but not to your TV or LCD(strictly)

Thanking you,

Problems connecting my acer laptop with tv


Sound and picture are two seperate things unless you use an HDMI cable so lets just deal with the picture first
After you do the connection, you need to tell your laptop to present the picture to the TV.
1- On your keyboard, one of your function keys (F1, F2 etc.) will have a short cut for this as a secondary functionality. Check for the function key that has an icon on it that looks like a screen (usually it is f4 or f7). Then hit the key that activates  your secondary functions and the key you just identified. This should activate the VGA output and in most cases will also give you a configruation screen (where you can select it as a secondary display, dual display etc.)
If this short cut doesnt work, you can try this
2- Make sure VGA cable is connected on both ends. Right click your desktop on the computer and select "Properties". On the new dialog, select the last tab "Settings". Click the drop down box under "Display" and you should see the TV as the secon option, select it. Then select the check box that says "Extend my display...", click Apply and OK. This should expand your screen to the TV, you should now be able to drag windows from your laptop's screen to your TV's.
Good luck! (Instructions on option 2 are for XP, if you use Vista let me know and I will look up the terminology for that)
