How can I connect computer to tv


Most newer TVs have a VGA connector on the back with the rest of the connectors. This is generally the easiest connector to use. You can get a VGA cable from a local computer store to connect between your computer video connection and the TV. If you have an old VGA monitor you are no longer using, you may find that the old VGA cable is removable - as they are on some monitors.

Alternatively, you can connect to an HDMI connector on your laptop / PC to the TV's HDMI connector (they should be labeled) using a standard HDMI cable if you have such a connection available. This is the preferred method if you have this connector available on both devices.

Third alternative option is if your computer (or TV) have a DVI connector. This connector can be adapted to HDMI. As an example, if your computer uses a DVI connector, and your TV has an HDMI connector on the back you could buy a DVI -> HDMI cable, or just use a HDMI cable with a HDMI -> DVI adapter on one end.

Once you have connected to the TV in one of the above methods, you then have to use the TV remote and change the 'input source' until you see your computer.

Side note: If you are using a laptop, make sure that your external connector is enabled - for Windows users, right click on the desktop and choose properties then Display. (Windows 8 users, choose screen resolution in the same location).

Good luck!

Hi I have a TV TXP46GT30B and Dell Laptop Inspiron 1545. I want to be able to connect my laptop wirelessly to my TV and use my tv to connect to the Internet so that I can surf. Is this possible? I have...


Hi N Crompton,
The easiest way is to connect your laptop to your TV using a VGA connector and turning your TV into a 46" Monitor...Unfortunately, Your TV does not come with a VGA Connector.7bcde1b5-bf22-4c99-9a88-4237cf21dad1.pngIt does, however, come with HDMI inputs....and unfortunately, your laptop does not have any HDMI outputs.afb6a85f-8042-4829-bede-c59ba4561cfe.pngbc9e37d2-c4db-4a21-a789-75d8b2ea27ca.png
What i would suggest is to buy a VGA to HDMI convertor...6011e135-a84f-4ed2-8f15-2876c734f3c1.pngThe downside to this is that you're going to have a cable stretching from your laptop to your TV.

To remedy that, I would suggest getting a wireless keyboard and mouse, and setting the laptop somewhere near the TV, and kick back on the couch.
Now, to take care of the Audio part, Audio does not go through the VGA to HDMI adapter, and your TV doesn't seem to have an 1/8" Audio In...If it did, and you have a set of decent speakers (Wired or Wireless) you can connect them to your laptop and get sound that way.

Hope this helps a little.
Get back with me if you have anymore questions or if i missed something.

Thanks and please Rate:)

What type of cable do I need to connect my HP desktop computer to my TV set so that I can watch web content on a bigger screen?


You can connect the video with an SVGA cable. If you want the sound to come through the TV easiest solution is to get an HDMI cable, assuming your laptop has the output for it and your tv has the input for it. It's a trapezoid port if you have it.

What type of cable do I get to connect presario 900 laptop to TV?the


Hi,

You can use either an HDMI cable or a VGA cable to connect your computer to your TV. Your computer has both HDMI and VGA ports. You can use either ports but you cannot use both or else your video card will crash.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! have a nice day!

I wanted to connect hp dv 4 1275 laptop with sanyo tv with hdmi and 3 rca .but its not working .tried everything din work.


You MUST install HDM IDrivers for your Video Card & MotherBoard. You can only use HDMI, OR Component, but NOT BOTH. Sometimes HDMI, requires an AUDIO OUT Cable, this is the Red & White, AV Stereo input.
OR you use COMPOSITE which is YELLOW, Video, now AUDIO, is Red & White.
COMPONENT, you use, Red, Blue, Green, (ALL VIDEO) PLUS you need the Stereo AV AUDIO too, Red & White.
HDMI, should supply BOTH, but as related sometimes you need the Audio red & White AV, inputs & Outputs.
ALL Cables go color to color.

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

Sony KF50we60 hdmi-dvi sound cuts when plugging into a ht-sf2300


DVI = HDMI without the audio connectors. So basically you need to connect your audio in some different way, PS3s allow you to keep your video signal as HDMI and change the Audio signal to component, so that is one way or doing it, not sure if the blue ray players allow you to do this though.
