There's normally a key combination to turn on the vga output.
It's normally Fn + one of the F keys.

How to Hook Up a Laptop to a LCD TV by VGA cable?


First of all check out does both the LCD tv and laptop both have vga cable input socket This is the most important step, as it will allow you to buy the right equipment.
VGA cable is the standard 15-pin connection that you would use to connect a monitor to a PC or laptop. Use a VGA cable to connect your laptop's VGA output with the television's VGA input. Use separate audio connection with mini-jack (3.5 mm) to RCA adapter.
Turn on your devices. Once you've made the connections, turn devices on. Switch your TV to the input mode that corresponds with the input you used to connect your laptop, and you should now view your laptop on your LCD TV.
This will help.Good luck.

MY acer ZD1 screen has gone black how do i connect it to a pc screen blind


1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the Right/Rear of the laptop.
Example of a VGA connector (Port), and a VGA Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for an example of a VGA Cable.

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Yes. You can also connect an HDMI cable to it, and HDTV with this capability.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not;
There are at least 3 display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor.
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key. At the SAME time tap once on the F5 key. The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

I turn on my computer and i don't see anything


Guess what? I don't see it either.

Oh,....that's because you're there, and I'm here, and.............never mind.

(OH, I'm jus jokin'!)

Would be helpful to know the laptop manufacturer name, and model number, though. The name you know, the model number is on the bottom of the laptop.

Diagnose to see what the problem is;

A) Graphics chipset,
Or
B) Video Cable,
Or
C) In the Display Assembly

1) Suggest start with attaching a VGA monitor to the laptop.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable of a VGA monitor, to the VGA connector on the laptop.

Example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on. By factory default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
There are at least 3 display options available,

A) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
B) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
C) External VGA monitor ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
Which key is the Display Toggle-Over key?
Don't know. You didn't state the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.

It is one of the F keys at the top. F1 through F12.
Usually has a monitor symbol on it, and a side arrow.
(Most of the time the F4, F5, F7, or F8 key)

No display on the external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key.

Still no? Bad graphics chipset.

Display shows on external VGA monitor? Problem is the Video Cable, or in the Display Assembly.
Post back in a Comment after you have performed this procedure, and also post the manufacturer name, and model number.

If the graphics chipset is good, we'll go on with the diagnoses if you wish.

Msi tv out


If the TV has a VGA port, then you can connect the U100 directly to the TV. Otherwise, you will need a converter depending on the inputs of the TV.

In the case of a VGA port on the TV, turn off the TV and the netbook before connecting the two devices. Then turn on the TV and set it to the VGA input. Then turn on the computer. The monitor should be recognized when the OS boots up. You can press <Fn>+<F2> to force the communication. In the Display properties (right click on the desktop), you should be able to change the display mode.

For composite video, the converter option uses devices like these: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-composite-video/c10000-c11200-c11213-p1.html . Again turn off all devices before connecting them and turn on the computer last. If a TV has only an RF (antenna) input, you can connect the VGA to composite converter to an RF modulator. However, signal losses may degrade the video.

I hope this helps.

LG W2361V 23 Vga to HDMI Cable Not Working


You have a cable problem as no such thing as a VGA to HDMI cable exists.

HDMI is a didital signal and is thus not compatable with an anolog VGA signal. HDMI to DVI cables however do exist as both are digital signals.

Hope this helps.

Monitor turn dark frequently


it sounds like your PC trouble, you may try (it is better to make sure the monitor connect other PC ok)
1) check PC ram, change ram sticks position if there are two ram stick, or change a new ram if only one ram inside. not fix go next
2) check VGA cable connection, reseat the cable. still not fix go next
3) if you use AGP VGA card change VGA cable to onboard VGA interface (setup bios VGA to onboard),
