Question about Toshiba Satellite L505DS5983 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5983 Laptop with Windows 7 and a Philips HDTV flat screen TV. I want to run a cable from the laptop to the TV so I can watch online shows on my TV screen. My TV has an HDMI slot, and the laptop has an HDMI Out port. At Best Buy they said buy an HDMI cable, connect it both ways, and that's it. Is it? They have one Rocketfish HDMI cable for $80, and Dynex HDMI Cable for $30. Does anyone know how these 2 cables compare--and, before I buy one--is all I have to do is go online, find the online video, connect the cable, and it will automatically show up on the tv screen, or do I have to do anything else to the laptop--give it some other command, or something? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Also, do I have to put my TV on any certain channel, or will the video just show up on the screen?

The price difference in the cables are what type of metal wire that is in it. One might have copper or even gold plated and the lower price one might have some low end metal. I have not seen any difference. Yes, all you have to do is plug it in and Windows 7 will recognize your TV. You might want to go into the Control Panel and open Sounds and make sure you have the audio turned on for your HDMI connection. Your laptop screen and the TV will be displaying the same.

I connect my Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5983 to my Dynex flat screen tv and if so what cable do I need? Thanks


In order to connect your laptop to your tv's display you will need a VGA to component or composite cable. The VGA part is connected to your laptop on the left side next to the network jack and then the composite or component part to the corresponding inputs on your tv. Here's a site that sells them just to give you an idea of what you will need. http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10235&cs_id=1023503&p_id=2170&seq=1&format=2
You should be able to find a similar cable at your local electronics store.
