You have to set the computer to emit the correct resolution for the monitor.

Try setting to 1020 x 768 and see if that works.

Do this in the "display" settings in the control panel of your computer. Also make sure the Sony is set to receive on the VGA port.

Does the Sony VGN SF790 support hdmi cables? I would like to connect to my Sony Bravia TV


Hi.

No I'm afraid not. It only supports VGA out. If your TV supports a PC input then a male to male VGA cable will do. VGA does not support audio so you will also need an audio lead to connect to the TV too.

Can you explain how can i view my advent 5421 laptop on my flatscreen tv - thanks - patrick


Hi Patrick,
If your tv has a VGA connector:

Once it's connected, you might have to change the video mode on the TV to see your computer screen.

Hope this helps!

Hi Guy's I have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop and a 32" Bush flatscreen TV. What cable do I need to connect the 2 to watch movies etc Cheers


Use a 15-pin, male-to-male VGA cable to connect your laptop to your TV. male-to-male means the pins are sticking out on both ends. Since both ends are male, you'll need to find the female VGA input on your laptop and on your TV. This is often called the PC input. Now, connect one end into the TV and one end into the PC. On a Mac, the VGA input is conveniently labeled with a "display" icon. It's recommended that you do this with everything powered off.

I'm interested in connecting my dell latitude d610 to a tv


You will then need to select the PC input on the TV Now on the laptop you need to select the VGA output - have a look at the F keys across the top of the keyboard - should be one with a screen symbol - often F4 or F5 - but can be any of the keys Now using the FN key and the F key together will toggle the output for the following - but not necessarily in this order <laptop Screen only><Laptop Screen and VGA output><VGA output only>

1.The standard resolution of laptop(any) which would support is 1024*768.
2. Toggle the display output from Laptop Fn Keys depending on Laptop Brand.
3. Connect the cable after settings made.
Also PC Settings will not be highlighted until connection is made.
