Question about Televison & Video
There could be several ways that the laptop be hooked up to a TV. It could be through RCA composite video, S-Video, VGA (15pins) and/or DVI. You simply need to check which is available at your laptop and match that port/connector to that of what the TV has. Of course an appropriate cable is also required.
In most instances, it would require that the laptop's Screen Resolution and Screen Refresh Rate be lowered down to match the maximum capacity of the TV.
Additionally, it would be needed to press on the Fn + F? keys of the laptop to cycle through the different settings such as: laptop's display only, laptop & TV displays and TV display only. The F? key would be one in your laptop designated to engaged/enable external monitor (TV). Normally, it would have a monitor icon.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
