    I am facing the same problem with my Toshiba Laptop. I think the problem is with the Samsung LCD itself. Its not detecting. I have tried it to lower/higher the resolution (tried it with Sony (Vaio) and Toshiba) and it just doesnt work. The PC option is 'Grey' in the Setup.

    Would appreciate if anyone can help by giving step by step instruction (using VGA cable or S-Video Cable).

    I can't connect either of my laptops (ThinkPad or Acer Aspire One) to my Westinghouse lcd tv using VGA. I have the right cord....but the tv won't detect a signal. What do I need to do?

Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:

If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your TV and computer are off.
  2. Using a 15 pin D-sub (standard) video cable, connect the Video Out jack on your computer's video card to the PC In jack on the back of your TV.
  3. Using an audio cable with a min-stereo plug on one end and two RCA jacks on the other, connect the Audio Out jack on your computer to the left and right PC Audio In jacks on your TV. (Note: If you have your computer connected to separate speakers, you can skip this step)
  4. Switch on the Notebook and Adjust the Resolution (800 x 600 pixels would do). You can go to Control Panel and Adjust the screen resolution. (Keep ‘Screen Refresh rate’ at 60hz in the Monitor Settings)
  5. Switch on the TV and try to Select the Source as 'PC' (you can do this by either pressing the 'Source' button several times on your TV remote or go to the Menu - Setup and Select the 'PC' as source there).
  6. In most cases, after following the above steps, the TV would start to show 'Auto Adjusting' message and it will start showing your Desk top on the TV. But incase it doesn't work, you can do the following:
a. Mostly the problem lies with the VGA cable. Make sure you have the right one (15 pin) and its securely attached at both ends. If you are not using the right VGA Cable, it means that there is no connection between your TV and Notebook. Your TV will show 'PC' in Grey in the Source Input list (Go to ‘Menu’ from the TV remote).
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.

At my mom's at christmas:
1. turn samsung off.
2. enter service mode via remote: mute-1-8-2
3. turn on power
4. you are now in service mode. navigation is clumsy, but use the up/down/left/right/menu/exit buttons, etc.
5. find the field called "Option Byte"
6. Switch PC from "Auto" to "Enable"
7. Get a hug from your mom, you're awesome!

note: be careful messing around in that menu. This simple bit flip that gives you VGA input doesn't erase or delete anything, but many other options may.

My acer 5100 has acer empowering utility programs, you need to go there. the pathway is: Start - All Programs - acer empowering tecnology - acer epresentation management - click on "Projection: XGA (1024 x 768) icon" this should send the screen signal out the VGA jack in the back of the notebook to your TV. Hope this helps

Plug your laptop into the pc, if it doesnt register leave the tv on but change it to the relevent source channel e.g. ext. 1, PC, S-Video. Then restart the laptop. That should work.

Make sure TV is set to connecting input port, like VGA or S-Video. "New Display" should appear on laptop.

I HAVE CONNECTED MY ACER ASPIRE PC TO MY SAMSUNG LCDTV USING A VGA CABLE , THE PICTURE IS THERE , BUT I CANT GET ANY SOUND ?


The VGA cable only supplies video data to the LCD TV. Connect a sound cable from the audio out from the Acer PC to the audio input on the LCD TV to get sound from the LCD TV's speakers.

How to connect/configure my acer aspire 4736Z to my LCD TV using the HDMI port/cable of my laptop? i tried to connect the HDMI cable but my laptop hangs...please help


for HDMI, I guess you just connect it with HDMI cable to your LCD TV, and use the FN+F5 or F6 to switch display from laptop's LCD to external. I think it should be the same way as using projector.
