Linking a laptop to a HD telelvision

I have a connection to the SVG socket on my laptop and I also have the correct extension lead that then connects via a HDMI connection into my television. Unfortunately I am unable to get a picture on my television and I wanted to know how

I have a gateway T1625. HDMI connection from the laptop to the TV HDMI port is not working. Do I need to do extra steps other than plain connecting the HDMI cable?

Battery not charging


The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty.
Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

How can i connect my advent qrc430 to a hd television


There are two options available with this laptop. Unfortunatley you will not be able to produce a High Definition picture, but nether the less it is possible to connect it to a HD TV.
The connections available are;
1x VGA - You will need a VGA Cable (as long as your HD TV has a VGA/PC input) cheapest found on Ebay. There is also a VGA to HDMI cable. Still wont be HD but an alternative to think about.

1x S-Video (TV-Out) - You will need a S-Video Cable (make sure HD TV has this input) also cheapest on Ebay.

Both of these options do not produce audio through them so for this you will need a 3.5mm audio jack to 3.5mm audio jack. Plug one end into your earphone socket on your laptop and the other end into your HD TV PC Audio in socket/Audio in socket. If you have a Cinema/surround system you will need a 3.5mm audio jack to stereo phono, as long as the surround system has an audio input.

Connecting my HP Pavillion DV9500 laptop to my Samsung PS-42Q96HD


Sound more like your problem is with the connection to the TV. Make sure the connection at the TV is to an 'input' connector and not 'output'. Also, from the TV menu, if you can select the output the laptop is using make sure the sound is stereo an not 5.1 or 7.1 or something to that effect. All other connections seem to be in good shape. Good luck.
