You could try changing the screen resolution on your laptop. start at the lowest 640x480 and work up-- toggling the FN+Fwhatever as you go.
The advanced video properties (button where you change your screen resolution MIGHT have a setting for external tv screen, depends on video chipset and driver... otherwise you do it the old way..

    I don't see a TV video card standard in your machine. Do you have an upgrade?

My tv wont work in dual monitor function, I have a compaq nc6230 laptop going into a 42" samsung plasma tv. I have tried changeing resolution and everything. Does a radeon x300 support a dual monitor


No

"2GHz Pentium M 760 Sonoma processor,
512MHz of average-speed 400MHz memory,
an ATI Mobility Radeon X300 graphics chip with a standard 64MB of VRAM,........."

http://www.cnet.com/laptops/hp-compaq-nc6230/4505-3121_7-31297917.html

A) Intel Pentium M, model 760; based on the Dothan Core,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_M_microprocessors#.22Dothan.22_.2890_nm.29

533MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (533MHz FSB)

Single-core processor. Mobile processor that is,...how shall we say?

Mediocre.

B) Ram Memory:
512MegaByte amount, at 400MHz, and is an average speed.

Which is DDR2 Sdram, that is SO-DIMM style for Notebook PC's; and operates up to a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 400MHz.
PC2-4200, or PC2-4300; depending on the ram memory manufacturer.

Which isn't anything to write home to Mom about.

C) ATI Radeon X300 graphics chipset, which has 64MB of graphics memory.

Definitely not going to do, what you are trying to do.

No, Johnny; it won't support a 42 inch HDTV, and your internal monitor of the laptop.

In fact, IMHO it won't support just using the HDTV.

What cable connects my netbook to my tv?


Most plasma/LCD's have a PC monitor plug on it. Most laptops will have one too. (or even DVI, which is usually a white plug, and wider than the VGA cable)

Either way, i'm confident that you'll probably have the BLUE 15-pin standard VGA on the monitor and the computer. If so, buy that. If you have the wider white (DVI), it'll be even better!

Connecting asus M51V to Panasonic TH-42PX8A plasma via HDMI


Hi

Make sure your TV does indeed support the resolutions you are trying to use. Some low quality HDMI cables can also be troublesome in higher resolution so try one you are sure to work.

Regarding to the desktop only being extended when using the RGB cables, try bringing up the desktop properties window, select the TV as the primary monitor and select "Use this monitor as Primary monitor". You might have to drag the windows Taskbar over to the other monitor, just rightclick the taskbar, uncheck "Lock the Taskbar" and drag it over to the other monitor.



Hope you find this solution helpful, and please rate it if you do so..

best regards,


Karl

Connect HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop to Panasonic Viera 42'' plasma


If you get your wallpaper to show on your TV, then you should be almost there.

  • Try to right-click somewhere in the desktop, choose "Properties" and go to the Settings tab. (Now you should be able to see both monitors.)
  • Click on the "Identify" tab to see which one is your TV.
  • See if "Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor" is checked.
  • Try to find a resolution that works with your TV by changing the values for the screen resolution.

Connecting Creative Gigaworks S750 computer speakers to panasonic plasma tv


This depends on the audio system setup designed on your television.

Most speakers can have adapters bought for them which will allow you to connect your speakers to a television. But not every TV will support the 7 speaker configuration with PC Speakers.

The good news is the adapters are fairly cheap at Radio Shack and should not set you back more then 10 bucks. Maybe even cheaper.
