This is actually a really commonly asked question to me by friends.
Short answer, yes.
Most TV's have what is known as a VGA input on the back and this looks like a small trapezoid with a bunch of holes in a three row pattern. If you have ever set up a cord from a monitor to a desktop, the process is identical. Getting a double sided VGA cord (Almost always colored blue" with two male sides (meaning that it has the pins inside the little metal piece) and plug it into the back of your television. Next, plug the other end into your laptop, assuming it has a VGA output, and power on both pieces of equipment. Make sure that your TV's input is set to VGA or computer and that your computer is set to transmit a signal, typically done by hitting "FN" F5. Now both screens which transmit the same image.
I am not very knowledgeable about your specific laptop, but you may even have an HDMI port, which means you can just buy an HDMI cord and plug it into both systems.
I hope this was helpful and apologize if it is not.

You don't really need the VGA part, but something like this would fix your problem.

What you're looking for is an HDMI to RCA adapter. The electronics store should know what to look for.

Good Luck,

I had my playstion 3 hooked up to an hd tv and then i hooked it up to a regular tv..the tv isnt reconizing the playstation at alll..i dont know what to do,


Hook the ps3 back up to the hd tv. From here you need to acces the settings resolution options. Set the resolution to 480 (standard tv). Once set for standard, turn off, disconnect, and set up to non hd tv. Problem solved.

Have xbox 360....got used,no instruct. book,was hooked to flat screen tv, no longer have flat screen tv, have regular tv hook up game comsole to tv, wont work.....why


If it was hooked to a flat screen it was most likely on high def. There is a switch on the connection to the tv to make it work on a regular defination tv. Just slide the switch over to regular and it should work. Hope this helps.

Monitor flickers sometimes when starting pc and won't come on.


if it is an older tube monitor - it seems it is at it's last breaths or the graphic adapter may be malfunctioning.

- please ensure all the cables( the internal ones, too) are attached properly,
-appropriate drivers fitting your OS are installed
- that there is no internal hardware conflict (IRQ conflict), please see: settings/hardware/device-manager for details

- try to hook up another monitor to double-check it is really the moni and not the graphics card!

if the issue occurs only in the original combinaton of old moni and PC, do consider to get a newer one.
another hint for an old moni is a slightly colour mismatch (maybe it has come to the red side?)
happy shopping

HD ready?


If it is HD ready it will have HD component cable hookups. They are the red, blue, and green color coded hook up. You may also have RGB hookups which will look like a usb port. If you have any of these hook ups located on the TV then it is HD ready. If not then you were told false information. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Connecting Dell speaker system to TV or console


Hello,

If you have a coaxial out on your TV and a coaxial in on your Speaker system that is the way to go to experience digital surround sound. Radio Shack, etc. has coaxial cables in the appropriate size. If you go to Radio Shack, etc. bring along your speaker system's model number as well as your TV's model number.

Hope this gets you going.

if the cable box is sending in 1080 signal the tv will not be able to format to a 480 (you can switch to either/or)
the problem you have is if your not sending 1080 to the tv your not really watching HD but you cant strech the 4:3 (non HD channels) to the 16:9
the only thing you can do is run analog signal and a digital signal then switch between the two sorces for your HD and non HD programs

It seems to me that you are watchin an analog signal on a digital HD TV, the analog signal is has a standard resolution of 720x576 for NTSC (American Signal) and 720x480 for PAL (European Signal).

It could be worth to go contact your cable company, they can hook you up with a digital receiver which gives a better signal and might even have a HD Signal (this means it has a HD-Ready 1280x720 of Full HD 1920x1080 resolution).

If you really want to use your LCD TV on his max this is really worth considering
