Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 PC Notebook

2 Answers

Connecting TV via cable.

I once have this notebook connected to my television. For some reason it no longer boots up via my PC connection for my television. I have checked the drivers and it gives me four plug and play monitors that are installed which seems odd. I have tried uninstalling them and reinstalling them but I get no response to my television. Any advice?

Hi,

Try lowering your laptop's screen resolution and refresh rates to the lowest possible.

Additionally, you need to press Fn + F? keys on the laptop to cycle on laptop display, laptop display + external display and external display. The F? key would be the one with the small 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.

How to connect laptop to my tv


The only output you have on this laptop is a VGA monitor connection.

See manual.

You need a TV with a PC connection to view the video.

You will also have to connect up the speaker sockets t the TV audio in via a cable, that depends on the TV.

Toshiba L355-S7905 does not want to connect to tv via vga port(no other ports available) The pc monitor goes dark after connecting vga cable to it. the TV says ''no signal'' is there anything that needs...


First without connecting the external Monitor/TV Go to display properties and Lower down resolution then when you connect the TV press and hold the Fn key on the left bottom of keyboard between Ctrl and Alt and while holding FN ket down press Change monitor button ( Normally F5)( must be having 2 monitor kind of image printed on any of the function key) once then twice or thrice to shift between different options like display output on one monitor, 2 monitor, extended display etc.

Connecting Toshiba Lap Top to NEC LCD TV


From user manual (page 68):
Your computer comes with a built-in display panel, but you can also
connect an external display device to an available video port, as
follows:
❖ An external monitor or projector via the RGB (monitor) port
❖ A TV, VCR, or DVD recorder via the S-video (TV-out) port
Before connecting an external monitor or video projector, configure
your computer for the type of device you are connecting. To do this,
refer to the documentation for your operating system and devices

So you have to use an RGB cable or a S-video cable : your cable should be plugged into 15 pin VGA port in your PC and plug it into a correspondent port in your TV.
Try also S- video and select correponding input in your TV set (Both connection type DO NOT carry sound: use your audio connector from PC to TV audio input.)
Configure your extended screen using your manual instruction:
Once you have connected an external display device, you can
choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or
both simultaneously. The quickest way to change the display output
settings is to use the display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order:
❖ Built-in display only
❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously
❖ External monitor only
❖ Built-in display and TV
❖ TV only

Connecting laptop to tv


1. If your tv has a PC input, use a vga cable, from any normal computer monitor.

2. If you use those HD connectors, match them to the correct colour coded inputs on the tv.

In each case, do all the connecting with the computer POWERED OFF. Then when connected, boot the computer, and allow Windows to auto-detect the 'new monitor', as it will 'see' it.

Then you shoud right click on your desktop, choose properties, and goto 'settings'. From there you will see monitors 1 and 2. click on the new monitor and 'enable' it.

You also have the option of 'extending' windows to the second monitor, as well as making this your 'default monitor'. Experiment to see what best suits your needs,

Erik.

Connecting my acer aspire 5100/5102 to my tv via cable


There are a number of possible ways to getbthe display up onto your television. Im not certain which colours to use with which but once its all plugged in you will need to hold down the FN (funtion) key and press one of the F1-F12 buttons. to work out which one you just need to look for a button that looks like a screen or two screens and that should make the display external. good luck
