Check the back of the tv to see if there is a VGA plug, it should look like and be the same connector as a computer monitor. If it has one plug the computer into it instead of the computer and select the appropriate input on the tv, on the remote or in the menu it may say VGA, some wont show a picture or go into standby until video is coming out of computer and there may be a VGA 1-2 (A-B) when selecting input.

It is perfectly possible. However it heavily depends on whether you have a graphics card installed on your computer. If your tv is HD ready then you can simply use a cable such as this one

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-Gold-DVI-male-to-HDMI-Cable-for-PC-HDTV-LCD-PS3-6ft_W0QQitemZ350242868274QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item518c1a0c32&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

then you can plug the HDMI cable into your tv and the DVI end into your computer. If you do not have any such ports  computer, but your television is HD ready then you will need a connector such as this for your computer.

and if you  have neither you will need a cable such as this

SOURCE: I want to connect my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6863 Laptop to TV

You have to configure yout laptop to output through the s-video (which does not carry sound, so you need to either use the laptop speakers for sound, or the line output (headphone jack) to the TV).
I don't know if all toshibas are the same, but with mine, if I hold Fn (near the windows key) and press F5, it will change the output, do it a few times until you see a picture on the TV, some settings make this your extended desktop, meaning you can drag a window from one screen to another.

SOURCE: Philips LCD TV "47, model PFL 8404H/12, NO SIGNAL on all 4 HDMI

This is quite tricky as it was working until last night and suddenly stopped receiving signals. What can happen wrong?
Do you have any other Player or other HDMI cables to try out. Sometimes the cables would be damaged or PC may fail to detect the HDMI.

Try this out from Philips helpdesk where there is new SW and FAQs are available.

Let me know if you are not able to upgrade the FW (if you do not get the support on ugprading)

No it is not possible this way. Look for a VGA port.

Unable 2 watch dishtv in Benq LCD SD3731 with DVD cbl plugged in


The S_Video connection has precedence (most likely named AV1) over the RCA/composite one (better image quality - usually named AV2) so it will be automatically selected. If you want to view thru AV2 input you will have to select it manually every time you want it.

Watch movies from computer to tv


look on the back or sides of the unit. it should have a hdmi cable hookup, it will look like a monitor input, then you have to make sure you set the tv input to that. then you have to set your laptop to add another monitor to be able to use it.
