Right click on your desktop and select display properties.click on the Settings tab, then on Identify - when another monitor is recognized, you can enable it in that window.

How can I hook my dell latitude e6400 lap top up to old sony Trinitron with one vga cable connected to laptop has rca and s-video also on same cable only one side thoe


If I understand your configuration correctly, you have a VGA cable that plugs into your laptop and you want the other end to connect to your TV? They make a VGA to S-video converter box that you can buy to make the connection http://www.bestbuy.com/site/agptek-vga-rca-s-video-to-vga-converter-box-adapter-switch-for-pc-lcd-monitor/1308798590.p?id=mp1308798590&skuId=1308798590

How do i connect my laptop to my dynex tv?


This depends on your hardware. If you have HDMI port on your laptop and on your TV it is the best and easyest option for your case. Just plug-in the hdmi cable, go to your computer Control Panel->Display and configure the second monitor as extended. Your TV must be monitor number 2 and you should use recommended settings for the picture resolution.
From your TV go to input source list and select the HDMI port.
Now you should see your desktop background without the taskbar and icons. So you can drag and drop the application you want to see on your Dynex TV(secondary monitor) and that's it. This method will bring video and audio just with one cable. Of course you can use VGA port on the Tv, but the quality of the picture will drop and you must have separate cable for the sound.

  • connect one end of the vga connector to the pc unit and the other end to the input port of splitter.
  • now the 2 remaining vga connector connect to the output of splitter either of the port, then the 2 end wire you must connect to the input port ( pc service port ) of the 2 tv monitor. make sure you set up the right input either with the remote or at the tv unit to recognized the pc source.

I want to change my 15 pin vga cable to my monitor


Hi,
There are two types of cable set up with VGA monitors. The newer ones have a cable that is detachable at both ends. In other words the cable can be unplugged from the monitor and the computer. These, of course are easily changed. They can be purchased at places like Best Buys,
CompUSA, TigerDirect.com. Below is a listing on Ebay for a replacement for about 8 dollars including shipping.
SVGA-VGA-HD15-/280624443642?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item41568530fa">
http://cgi.ebay.com/Male-to-Male-15ft-PC-Monitor-Cable-Cord-SVGA-VGA-HD15-/280624443642?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item41568530fa


If you have the type of cable that is permanantly mounted to the back of the monitor, then you would have an extensive operation to replace the cable and it would likely be more expensive than the monitor was in the first place to replace it.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

I recently purchased a ASUS K60 Notebook from best buy. I am using Windows 7. I am trying to hook it up to my 42" inch LCD tv via a VGA cable. My problem is that when I do all I am getting is my Desktop...


Since you are using a laptop to connect to an extended monitor, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that both the laptop and TV are on.
  2. Connect the VGA cable from the laptop to the TV.
  3. Then hold down the FN key and the function key with the TV/Monitor icon like the one below to switch to dual monitor display mode.
