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?

You can connect too your TV using the program on Windows. If you go to your control panel and click on Personalization. This will bring you to your appearence go to bottom of page and click on monitor settings. Once you are there you can select how you can see TV. Make sure you have the HDMI connected to bothe the computer and television.
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.
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
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
