You need an Video out, adapter cable, for your model Laptop, IF yours indeed does have the ability to TV out, the "output" is "Composite Video" and goes into the Composite Video "IN" on the TV. Audio is taken from Line Out in laptop & goes to AV audio in, via a Phono Jack to RCA converter plug. Also it must have correct drivers and be enabled and have desktop extended to the TV either Cloned or Spanned.
Usually one connects up to the TV, powers TV on & then Turn your laptop on.
You may have a Yellow RCA socket on the back/side of your laptop, otherwise you have to get a converter cable.

How do i hook my compaq preario cq56 laptop to my hitachi hd plasma tv


The laptop looks like it has an external VGA port only and without knowing what model of Hitachi tv it is. It is quite possible the tv may have a VGA input in which case a standard VGA cable will allow you to connect the laptop to the tv. Otherwise you will need one of the following depending on what connections the tv has:

1. VGA to HDMI cable: http://www.amazon.com/Video-Cable-Black-Support-Necessary/dp/B002TUC64W/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1355697785&sr=1-1&keywords=vga+to+hdmi+cable

2. VGA to RGB cable: http://www.amazon.com/eForCity-Premium-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B0012SPNII/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1355697879&sr=1-1&keywords=vga+to+rgb+cable

If you do not have an HDMI input, you will also need to get an audio cable as well. Standard mini-stereo audio cables should allow you to connect the laptop to the tv.

I need to connect acer aspire one to my technika tv can i do this through hdmi ? if so what cale do i need to buy


If your version of Aspire One has an HDMI slot then yes - it will work. Every HDMI cable, even the cheapest one, will work.
But regular Ones have just a VGA connector and only a VGA cable in a VGA slot of the tv will work. If your tv doesn't have that slot then you cannot connect it to the laptop.

I just hooked up my HP Pavilion 9000 Laptop to my Vizio TV and put the TV on correct setting. It is not working on the TV, any ideas? I went on Display setup and kept trying to connect but it says the...


If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.

How do i hook up a nintendo to my tv which cords go where and can someone walk me through it


Round peg into the round hole. Red peg on the red slot. etc. If the wire from the nintendo doesn't fit the slot on the tv then you're in the wrong slot. if the wire from the nintendo fits the slot on the tv (and is the same color if you are using red/white/yellow rca cables) then you're good. here's a hint on connection types (you will not mix): 1. RCA (red/white/yellow round connectors) Red=right audio sound White=left audio sound Yellow=video connect to the slots that look like they want some. 2. Coaxial (stiff cable with a pinner poking out of the end -- same cable that connects you to cable tv) just hook it up by itself; it carries audio and video. 3. Component (red/green/blue)(red/white) two 'bundles' red=red component of video green=green component of video blue=blue component of video red=right audio white=left audio 4. VGA + (red/white) VGA=video (computer monitor cable) red=right audio white=left audio 5. HDMI (flat hdmi cable. you spent $30 on this 3 foot ****) HDMI=audio and video 6. hugs and kisses hugs=video kisses=audio (both sides)
