Connect pc to tv


You will need a cable that connects the tv to the pc. If you pc has a vga connection and your tv has a vga connection, then you would purchase a vga cable and connect it. If the computer and the tv have 2 different types of connections you will need some type of adapter between the two of them.

Once you get them connected with a cable you just turn the tv on and Select Input (Select either PC, Computer, HDMI) of where the tv should receive the signal.

On the pc if you just reboot it most times the image will appear on the tv. if not you can Press and Hold your FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display.

I can`t use an external monitor connected by VGA port for my Toshiba Satellite M55 S331. I need to know if the port is damaged?


The M55 series does not output to external VGA automatically. You can either go into Setup (press F2 when computer is starting) or use FN F5 in Windows to toggle between LCD, monitor, or simultaneous output.

The monitor port should be standard, so as long as the plug on your monitor doesn't have any bent pins, it should work.

My toshiba M55 Satellite will not boot up. My


Take the hard drive out and see if anything comes up on the screen. If so, replace the hard drive.

Does the screen get any brighter when you turn on the laptop? If not, the lcd cable, or power inverter may have gone bad.

Did you have any blue screen of death errors, or any other kind of errors before the screen problem? If so, you may have bad memory. Do you hear any beeps?

What cables do I need to connect my toshiba satellite m55 laptop to my hi def tv?


This really depends on the connectsionon your hi def TV. The laptop doesn't have an HDMI port (these ports carry sound and video in one cable), but it does have a VGA out port as well as a s-video out.

You can connect an s-video cable from your laptop to your hi-def TV, if the TV has an s-video input port.

You can also purchase a VGA to Component converter if your hi-def TV has component inputs, these are the Red, Green, Blue inputs. Amazon sells these, here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Premium-VGA-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B000RJLSZU

If you have a DVI input you can purchase a VGA to DVI converter as well. These are very inexpensive and you can find a wide selection on Amazon, here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=vga+to+dvi

Finally, you can also purchase a VGA to HDMI converter. This would be the most expensive option, but you can use this box to put both sound and video from the laptop onto the HDMI cable. YOu would need both the converter and cable for this to work. Converter is here: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Audio-HDMI-Converter-Adapter/dp/B0015YWV1G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263068538&sr=1-3
Cable is here: http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-meter-foot-cable-1080P/dp/B0002L5R78/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_b

VGA connection from PC to TV --TV says "no signal"


On the remote control for your television, there should be a source or input button. Pressing the key repeatedly will switch from cable input to standard tv input, to s-video, or ypbr, or game, or various others. Try doing this and see if the image appears, this awlays works for me. If I am telling you something you have already tried, i am sorry!
