Turn the laptop off, the TV on

Start laptop

If the TV does not get a screen by the time desktop appears, open your graphic controls (usually on bottom right of menu bar) and select external monitor, then set parameters (size, PAL/NTSC, etc)

If this utility is not available there, look for a color-coded FN key, and a correlative same color icon on F keys (F1-F12) that resembles a monitor (rectangle),. Press both of these simultaneously, which brings up monitor option there.

    I left out the obvious,

    Between

    "Turn the laptop off, the TV on"
    and
    "Start laptop"
    We should remember to connect the TV properly to the laptop!

Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

Vga cable color array i want to connect a pc to analo tv i want to make my own cables


Unless your TV has a component (Red/Green/Blue) video connector, you are out of luck for connecting it using the VGA output. Honestly, it's more trouble than it's worth, and VGA to TV adapters are very expensive. A much easier solution would be to get a video card that has a composite or S-Video output and use that instead. A lot of video cards manufactured in the last 5-10 years already have S-Video outputs on them, so it's possible your video card already has it. There's a picture of the connector on this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Video

Even if your TV doesn't have an S-Video input, don't worry - you can get an S-Video to Composite adapter for under $10.

How to turn on s-video on lenovo 8922


The user manual for that model 3000-c200-8922 is here http://www.retrevo.com/support/Lenovo-C200-Laptops-manual/id/615dj197/t/2/
I have seen these instructions for Lenovo laptops - specifically that the laptop needs to be off when connected and then booted to enable the S-Video - no details available on the IBM site I can find
  • Make sure the laptop is off
  • connect S-Video lead to your tv
  • switch the TV to you S-Video AV input
  • Switch onlaptop
  • Now press the fn key + f7 key together - do this as the system is booting
If that does not work, try going into the display advanced features - not sure if you have vista or XP or windows - post back what you have , and look for a setting for TV out

S-Video Out Not Working?


some graphics cards have trouble with certain tv's refresh rate normally 50HZ ones and s- video more so than any other, if you have a vga or dvi connector on your tv i would use that preferably to s-video. I assume you have looked in the graphics card properties and not just on the desktop settings to identify your other screen, as there is not a lot more that can be done.
