You should be ably to toggle the output between the LCD and the output jack by pressing the FN and F5 keys.

**note** check your F keys for a picture of a little monitor, as F5 may not be the correct one for your model.**

How do I connect my Laptop Acer 5735 to my TV Sony KDL-40NX700, what kind of connection cables do I require?

If Your TV and Laptop have HDMI Port then you just need a HDMI Cable.
But if you dont have HDMI port. then you need two cables one from video and one for audio.
For Video you either VGA Cable(if you have VGA Port in your TV) or VGA to RCA Cable (Yellow Pin will be for video)
For audio You Need 3.5mm pin to RCA (white and Red for audio).
This pic is of VGA to RCA Cable

Want to know how to connect acer 3680 to tv

It depends on your TV

If your tv has a Computer VGA connection you can directly connect the VGA connector from the left side of the laptop to the connector on the tv

If there isn't then you could go buy a S-Video to RCA cable at radioshack and connect the S-Video port on the laptop to a video in connection on the TV

For sound you can connect the speaker/headphone jack on the laptop to the tv using a cable either going direct from 8mm to 8mm or from 8mm to RCA...either can be found at radioshack

Let me know if you need anything else!!

What cable do I need to connect my Sony vaio VGN FS640 Laptop to my RCA TV and where does this cable connect to, on my laptop? My RCA TV has a SVideo connection.

To output video from your laptop you will need to use VGA out.

What you want to buy is a VGA to S-Video adapter, making sure that both the VGA and S-Video have male connectors.

This solution will not output audio.

How do i connect my laptop to my television

You need a VGA to TV cable. If your TV has a component input, you need a VGA to component cable, like the following one:

The VGA connector is for your laptop (you connect in on the side) and the RCA connector (3 plugs) is for your TV

Check your TV for a green, blue and red connector on back.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Thank you

How can I connect my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872 laptop to my TV?

Check your notebook for "S-Video / TV out" port that has a 7-pin jack instead of a standard 4-pin S-Video jack. Check your laptop before ordering this adapter.

The newer your computer is, the better chance that it comes with either a RCA Composite or SVIDEO connection. Some notebook computers also have video outputs on them. When buying a new computer always look for the words "TV out" or "video out" in the computer description. 

If you only have a VGA connector and don't have an HDTV then your best choice is to buy a newer video card with an S-Video connector. There are other third party solutions out there but the quality is very poor and we do not recommend it. 

The VGA port is the connector that's connected to your PC monitor (the TV like device that came with your computer). This connector is usually only usable for VGA Monitors or HDTV setups. If you have an HDTV this will give you the best image possible. 

If you have an RCA Composite connector on the back of your computer, then you can use that. You may also need to power down your computer and reboot to be able to get the signal. You need an RCA Composite cable that will be long enough to reach from your computer to your PC. Connect the cable to the back of the computer to the back of your TV SET. 

S-Video is superior to that of RCA Composite and will give you a clearer picture. If you have a fairly new TV you should have this connector in the back. You will need to buy an S-VIDEO cable, which you can buy just about anywhere you buy home video products. Connect the cable to your S-Video on the back of your computer and then connect it on the back of your TV

Connect my laptop to tv with a sound

Your computer may have come with cables to do just that. If not, you have options:

For video, I would check your TV inputs to see if it has a VGA port, since that would be the easiest. You can also get VGA to RCA or S-Video converters online as well if your TV does not have a VGA port. Almost all TV's these days have RCA inputs.

For audio, you can get a headphone jack (3.5mm) to RCA converter.

If you can't find the converters at your local electronics store, just google VGA to RCA and headphone to RCA.

Once you have the necessary cables connected to your TV, your computer will recognize that it has been connected to an external video source. I'm not sure, but I think it is either key combination Fn+F6 or F7 to perform a monitor switch. You can also right-click on the desktop and select properties (or personalize in vista). Then switch to the settings tab (or Display settings in vista) and click on the alternate display.

Connecting Dell Inspiron 1501 to TV, Windows Vista

The PC card you have doesnt appear to work with that adaptor. Dell Has its own Svideo / Video output adaptors.

You need a converter not an adaptor. Try looking on Amazon for this: ITV-900 PC to TV Converter
