Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
Splicing a computer monitor output wire from my laptop to an A/V cable for a projector. I'm basically using a generic computer monitor cable/plug and splicing it to a generic A/V cable Red/Yellow/White. In doing so I want my laptop's screen to project on a broader projection screen. When I tried to do it myself the monitor's wires consisted of 3 BIG wires that were gray, blue, and red. There were also smaller ones that were green, white, black, yellow, orange, brown. The A/V cables consisted of 3 big wires that were red, white, and black. There were also present little ones that I disregarded and clipped in haste considering the fact that the red and white were the audio while the black was the only one left for video. Any help you could give me would really be awesome. Thanks again and hope you can give me a ''real'' solid with this job.
This cant be done.. You need a video card that has the yellow jack [video out]

'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:
Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!
Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.
Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.
If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)
