Which wires do i use to connect my laptop to my TV ??

I am confused as to which wires i need to use my tv (Sony 42' HDTV) as a monitor. I don't know if i could use an S cable or just one of the usb cords that would connect to both because i bought this used laptop and i have 4 ports that i have no idea what they are used for???? So please if you know which wires that i could use and what these other ports ae used for please let me know. Thanks so much!!

    Well i don't know how to check what kind of video card there is, i went and i don't know if this is what i am looking for but it says ATI Radeon Xpress 200M. But i did check it has 640 mb of RAM and 1.60Ghz.

    Nope i have not that's why i didn't know what port to use on the laptop, but my husband did buy a S video wire last night that was a 4 and 4 but the tv is a 4 and the laptop is a 7 prong and the 4 and 4 didn't work so i am guessing it has to be the exact 4 and 7??

    are the s video wires the only wires that can be used for my laptop, since the tv is an hd?

  • MMladybug Apr 27, 2008

Well..you'll need more horsepower than that one has..and a special video card, unless it's already set up that way...can you look into control panel, and see what video attributes you have..the S Video would work fine, of course, if you can drive it that way from your compaq

    no..but those are the ones that will work best...high speed equals high resolution..even USB 2.0 can't touch S Video.

Connect g60 to sharp 42" hdtv via hdmi


They both will need to have hdmi ports so that you can run a hdmi to hdmi cable between them. If not, you will need some type of adapter that connects between them.

Once you have them connected turn the tv on and press Select Input from the Remote and Select HDMI as the input (If you have vga connections there might be a PC or Computer connection for it).

Reboot the laptop and the video should be on the tv.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Connected laptop to hdtv via rgb lead but no sound from 2nd monitor(tv)


Sadly, RGB cannot carry sound. In order to hear the laptop sound on the television, You'll need to get an 1/8" headphone connector to RCA (White and Red plug) cable and connect it to the same input as the video is plugged in.

I have a del latitude E6410 laptop and would like to know how to connect it to a pansonic 42 flatscreen hdtv to use it as a moniter


Dell Latitude E6410 does not offer HDMI or DV. Only VGA Port is available. Therefore in order to connect the laptop with the TV, you can use VGA cable.
But if the VGA input is not available on the TV, you need to get VGA-to-DVI or VGA-to-HDMI Adapter, depending upon the type of port available on the TV.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I want to connect my Thinkpad T30 laptop to HDTV


Depends on what connections are on your laptop and tv check them both. If you have a HDMI port on both you can use that. If not most recent TV's have a VGA port which you can use using a standard vga cable if not they will have a DVI or S-Video port and you will need one of those cables which are all availble from any computer shop. But check which one you need first

HP DV9700-L/side ports- which one will work for second display/TV


I do not know if this is the answer you are looking for, but I know that when I connected my S-video connection to some old crappy big screen TV, I had to set the laptop's second video output to specifically output to S-video. There were 3 or 4 different settings that had to be done. I dont remember the details, all I remember is that the 1. the second video monitor had to be set to the s-video connection. 2. the analog video setting had to be set to PAL or NTSC or whatever they are, I dont know what it is off the top of my head, then there was another setting, I dont remmeber, I think it was the setting to 'clone' the screen so that it just duplicated it. In this case, you might have to set the resolution to somthing smaller that would fit on a standard definition screen.

Samsung hdtv to compaq pc


There should be a setting within the comp. Is it connected to the comp monitor and the tv? Perhaps from the comp to the tv with the monitor from the comp as well? Well if so, you may need a certain setting within the comp. Check under (on xp) display properties, and then under the settings tab. Please rate!
