Question about Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook

No audio output to tv on my dell 1545

I am trying to connect my Dell 1545 to a TV for video ouput. I'm using a VGA > VGA connection and the picture is transferring perfectly. However, I can't get the audio to output to the TV. I'm using the Laptops 'Headphones' output socket and the TV's L&R Audio input sockets with a 3.5mm Jack 2 RCA Phono Audio Cable. The exact same setup used to work on my old laptop without any problems. When I listen to music on the laptop via headphones the sound outputs perfectly. Can anybody help?

That, & most, earphone sockets, simply doesn't have enough "Current" or signal voltage to drive your TV set's audio in Amplifier. You need to get a Pre-Amp, to amplify the signal, up to a level that can be used by the TV. So you need to purchase, or build from a kit, a small stereo pre-amp and insert it between your laptop & TV audio In.

How do i use my tv sa a monitur for my pc but has no VGA on the back just a HDMI plug and scart socket.


Chris, what happens when you plug the hdmi connector into the TV and your adapter, while your computer is running and connected to the adapter?
Are there drivers required for the adapter?

As an alternative, you could install a video board in your Dell that includes an HDMI output. I have a laptop with one, and connect it to my TV often; works fine.

frequenly asked questions- you will probably need to also use an aux sound input in conjunction with a video cable if you are not using an hdmi connection, read the article above for confirmation.

Can you help with my Dell inspiron 1545 VGA problem?


Laptops use shared RAM memory, it uses part of the main RAM.
If the RAM is faulty or not making proper electrical connection it affects the video.
Reseat the RAM module/s and if this does not fix the problem, remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM.

> I have bought a pig tail that goes from VGA(the lap top side) to s-video/audio-video cables(tv side)
A simple pigtail won't convert VGA to S-video. The VGA output consists of separate RGB lines and horizontal and vertical synchronization lines.
If you have an adapter that really converts VGA (this output has no audio path) to S-Video and audio lines, then you probably just need to re-select the input through the TV's menu system.

Taptop connect to TV audio preoblems


Hi there.
If your TV supports a VGA cable it should also support computer audio in. You need to purchase a mini stereo cable and plug it in to the headphone socket on the laptop and run it to the computer audio in on the TV,just using the VGA cable alone will not produce any sound.
Purchase something like this for the audio >>>>>>

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

Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?


you need to have the same connections on both my laptop has svideo or vga connector, some have Hdmi which is the newest, but the tv and laptop have to bot have the same connectors, it may be a dvi, or any that I mentioned, then you need a cable for your video, and another for your audio, both the audio and video cables are run to the tv, the only one that has both audio and video is the HDMI which tv's from the last hear or 2 usually do have. Then depending which input the laptop is using which it will tell you where the connection for the tv is, you set it to that input and that turns your tv into a giant monitor

Have you tried another monitor on the VGA output? If that still doesnt work may need to set up in CONTROL PANEL>DISPLAY>SETTINGS>DISPLAY- should show another monitor fool around with that and see if you can get it to work, if so then try your tv, But ive never seen a tv with a VGA input? Maybe its me? Good luck JLS
