I have a Vizio tv with rgb connection and want to connect to my dell e1505 laptop. I have connected the rgb and also the audio to my headphone jack on the computer. TV says no signal. Are there setting to change in the laptop. Tv says "no rgb signal" and turns off?
Same problem!!! Inspiron E1505 connected to a year old LG 47" 1080p lcd. My rgb used to work fine, plug and play with my pc. No luck with my laptop though. I've tried setting up duel monitors, updating all(atleast I think all) of my drivers, and rechecking all connections!! Please Help.

Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer
or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of
the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the
computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI
card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner
card supports component video.
Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you
want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you
have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the
DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your
computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV.
If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the
"Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the
computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end
of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your
computer in Step 2).
Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer
monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the
screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television
viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the
contents of the TV on your computer.
You need a 1/8" stereo jack to rca....can get on at walmart....hook it from your headphone jack on your pc to the input on the sound bar....input 1 or 2....make sure you have the right iput selected for the sound bar and you should be in business
Yes, all new TV's of 1080p specification will have a dedicated PC connection (and should have either a 3.5mm audio socket or 2 x RCA inputs for audio).
The most common way is to use a VGA lead (with 3.5mm audio lead) - VGA out of pc to VGA in of TV. 3.5mm audio output of pc (ie headphone socket) to 3.5mm audio input of TV.
You will just require the correct VGA lead long enough to connect to your pc.
The wireless keyboard and mouse will need to be connected to your pc, and must be within "line of sight" to the wireless receiver.
If you specifically want to use pc output to RGB input (and RCA audio in) of your TV, then you will need to obtain a long VGA to RGB conversion cable, plus 3.5mm audio lead. Have a look on Ebay for a coversion cable.

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and white) RCA jacks. 2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. 3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then, connect the adapter to an electrical outlet. Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a vertical or floor mount position.
As I type this, I am using my Vizio 50" plasma. All you need to do is ditch your current monitor you use for your internet service and use the same cord from the monitor to plug it into your RBG port on the back of your tv.
Next for sound there is a 1/4 jack next to the RGB port on your tv. Connect your tv to your audio out on your computer. (headphones or aud out)
Select RGB on your tv, and your good to go. I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse for my computer which makes it more convenient.
that audio jack is input only it is stereo jack to connect from the comptuer to the tv when using the RGB input. most headphone jacks if they are there would be on the side of flat panel tvs. otherwise the audio output may be digital(optical) or normal rca (red and white) that you can hookup to the headphone system.
You need a 1/8 in cord on both ends. Normally, its an 1/8 inch audio connection in your tv to work with PC (the same connection as when you plug it in your comp) So u would need a wire that both ends are 1/8 inch (Headphone jack sized)
