Yes you can.

You will need the VGA cable to plug from your laptop to the converter then the converter to the tv that you want to send the signal to.

However, most laptops will have an svideo output for tv so you may not even need this converter unless you want to switch between pal and ntsc.

One thing to note is to switch your laptop to external output there should be a function button on your laptop and one of the F function with a logo of a small computer on it to switch between laptop screen or external vga. Alternatively you can go to display properties and select the external view. On a IBM laptop its F7.

good luck

Toshiba large screen - connected to my laptop with an Auvio USB to HDMI adapter.


First confirm that you do not have a VGA connection for a PC in the back of your TV. Many PC's connect directly into the TV's with VGA connection provided. If only HDMI then a converter can be a reliable alternative.

A VGA to HDMI converter may be a better solution. This particular device identified in the link has the power from the USB of the laptop to operate, the sound from the audio out of the laptop, and assuming you have a VGA out for a monitor the connection to the converter will give you choice of resolution.

There are many different units available and the one in the ink is just an example.
Hope this helps?

Want Connect to My Laptop HDMI Output


If your TV has no HDMI input to connect with your laptop's HDMI output, surely you need a converter. If the laptop have A/V output, and the TV too have an A/V input, you can connect in between, using an AV cord. google.com/+GopakumarGopalan

Element tv wont see laptop


Connecting laptop VGA port to HDMI port on a TV
VGA to HDMI converter is required to connect a laptop to a TV with HDMI input. The VGA signal does not have an audio component. You need to connect an audio cable from the audio/headphone port on your laptop to the audio connector on your TV. There are HDMI converters with Audio input so you do not need to connect an audio cable to the TV. The audio is connected to the HDMI converter and then passes the audio with the video data to the HDMI cable to HDMI port on the TV. Check out these WEB site for these HDMI converters. http://www.aten.com/products/productItem.php?model_no=vc180 http://www.sybausa.com/productInfo.php?iid=1174 http://www.topbuy.com.au/tbcart/pc/Audio-VGA-to-HDMI-Video-Converter-Box-HD-HDTV1080P-p164633.htm

Can not connect hdml wire to my philips led tv with my dell laptop. what to do


If your laptop does not have a HDMI port then you need a VGA to HDMI converter. Connect this converter to your laptop and then connect it to the TV using a HDMI cable. You also need to connect the audio out port on the laptop to the audio in on the TV. You can get a combined audio input with some HDMI converters.

Connect to tv but no hdmi socket on laptop


LOL, you're up the creek without a paddle unless you buy some type of Converter that goes between the laptop and the tv. They both have to have the same type of connection or you will need a converter to make it look like they have the same.

Does your Laptop have a VGA Connection, does the tv have a VGA connection, if so use it. Otherwise you're going to need some type of converter that will convert the vga signal/connection out of your laptop to a HDMI connection that the tv has.

My formac dvi monitor wont work as a 2nd monitor for my laptop


Try a monitor that has a vga output only, sometimes these laptops can't recognize the difference when there is a converter involved. It doesn't see the signal properly.

Try that and if a regular monitor works with vga then you know that monitor may not be compatible with that laptop because of the converter. You could also try another converter as well to see if that fixes the problem.

Attach HP PS2 Keyboard to Dell Laptop


hmm, Interesting
Because the Laptops mostly do not have the PS2 Port,
if you are using the converters connecting the USB to the PS2.
then It may be the junction related issue.
so find a USB mouse and connect it directly or try with another Converter.
that should work.

PC to TV connect


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.
