Question about Computers & Internet
Hello and welcome to FixYa.
to get picture from your laptop to your tv, there are few things you need to do.
First obviously connect the cable to the computer and to the tv.
Then make sure the tv is turned on and is on the proper channel.
Then you need to enable the picture output to the tv.
On laptop computers this can be easily done by pressing one of the Fn+F keys, which are F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11 and F12. a Combination of FN and one of the above keys will change the laptops settings to show image on the LCD display, LCD and External or External only. This varies brand to brand.
On a Acer Laptop the combination is FN+F5, on hp the combination could be FN+F4 or FN+F6. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out from the small icons on the keys.
If this doesn't work for some reason, then you need to enable the 2nd display from the display settings on your computer.
Todo that press start, then control panel, then find Display or screen settings. and from there possibly screen resolution or similar page as below
1. click on the number 2 display
2. change the setting to either extend or duplicate
3. click apply
4. click keep changes
5. close the window.
On other versions of windows you would right click on the number 2 and select Attach.
Now you should have picture on the tv. Or maybe you just have a blue background or your wallpaper there? Well, you can take any program, movie, video, etc, make sure its not set to full screen, then grab the window from the top, and move it to the right side of your display, and then out from it, it then appears on the 2nd display. as shown on this video::
