Yes, there are converters that can take the VGA terminal on your laptop and convert them to RCA or S-Video. As for the black and whit, try using a different cable, otherwise the jack is bad, and you would have to open the case to fix it.

Tv to computer hookup


Dear Friend,

You should have an output that looks like in the picture below

12_22_2011_3_03_27_am.jpg

If not, should look like this
12_22_2011_3_05_08_am.jpg

Then, from there just find the right cable for it to connect with your TV. There should be a combination key such as Fn key plus the "F1 to F12" that will have a monitor symbol that will allow you to view on and external monitor or TV.

Good Luck!

Hello, i have a sanyo lcd tv & i want too connect my Advent Laptop to it, but i dont know what cable to use because my laptop doesnt not have the HDMI port or the VGA port.... help?


Does your TV have an S-VIdeo input? Does your TV have a DVI input?

What model of Advent laptop?

Does your laptop have a S-Video output socket (looks quite similar to a PS/2 mouse-socket) ?

Does your laptop have DVI-output?

Screen shattered want to connect to HDMI for HDTV. Boots up on TV then says no signal what should I do?


Press the FN+F5 key, this is the hotkey combination that switches your display from the LCD to the external output. If this does not work, make sure you are using the S-Video output on your laptop to connect to the TV, since your Toshiba model does not have an HDMI compatible output.

Change video output to s vedio connection


If the computer does not easily and automatically show the computer screen on the tv through the S-video output, make sure the tv is switched to S-Video and Hold down the Fn + F5 keys to toggle through the video output manually on the laptop. Just make sure that only one video source is connected at a time. Your laptop will not support two output sources at the same time. Below is the user manual in which it discusses the use of an external device on page 70.

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.

My Toshiba P305D S8836 won't connect to my TV


Have you pressed the Fn button and the associated F key to transfer the signal to the S-Video output? If so you may need to configure the display setting for monitor 2 in the display setting in control panel as it will differ from the monitors settings.
