You are trying to run a VGA signal to your television? Usually you need a scan converter to do that so the signals will match. Does your laptop have S-Video out? That would be the ideal method.

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.

Screen stays black

Get a vga cable and connect it to the side of the laptop, or where you can see the vga connection then send signal to either a monitor/ tv (if they have a vga connection).

by doing this you will be able to find out if its the screen that is faulty or the graphics card.

if you cant see anything else on external screen then its either the graphics card or the laptop motherboard.

if you can view pic, then its the screen, then you can decide if its worth replacing?

Out of rangemy dell pc to tv vga connection out of range no signal

Most of the televisions use NTSC standard to receive video signals wherein the screen resolution is VGA - which is 640 x 480 pixels. If your computer screen resolution is set to a setting which is more than this, the resulting video signal will not be within the scan range of the TV; hence this error.

The simple fix is to reduce your screen resolution back to 640 x 480. To do this, right-click on an empty area on your desktop, select 'Properties'. On the resulting 'Display properties' screen, click on 'Settings' tab & reduce the slider to the setting described above.

Problems with Lenovo 3000N200 0769-EAG tv-out

My friend, the easiest and by far the best way I have seen is to set the advance timings on your laptop just right and use a vga to scart cable.

Restart your Laptop to recognize again your TV on the system.

I am trying to connect my acer PC to a tv but get

The inputs on a TV are normally via the ariel and go into a pre-amp

To get a signal in you, would again, normally connect to the RGB or Video in which bypasses the pre-amp.

The VGA cable will be outputting a digital signal which a monitor will understand but a TV will not as it prime supply is via an analog signal

You may be able to get a connection if you process the signal through a freeview box which changes the signal from analog to digital

VGA connection from PC to TV --TV says "no signal"

On the remote control for your television, there should be a source or input button. Pressing the key repeatedly will switch from cable input to standard tv input, to s-video, or ypbr, or game, or various others. Try doing this and see if the image appears, this awlays works for me. If I am telling you something you have already tried, i am sorry!

Connect Laptop to TV

It depends on what kind of TV you have. If you have a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, it may have a VGA connection already installed. If that is the case, all you need is a standard VGA cable to connect from your notebook to your TV.

If you have a TV without a VGA connection you will need a scan converter to convert your signal from VGA to RCA or composite video signal. These can be purchased online or from electronics stores like Radio Shack. You plug your VGA connection from the computer to the scan converter, then RCA or composite video cables from the converter to the TV.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Dell Vostro 1000 will not recognise television

Are you sure it's "F8" only? Usually most laptops use the FN+F5 to change video to external display.
