Guys, Recently i got LG 22" LCD TV. It has VGA port and HDMI port. When i connected my CPU cable toLCD via VGA port it didn't show anything, :"( i checked input MENU on remote then it shows only 4...


HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface]. VGA [Video Graphics Array]. AV [Audio Video]. By these definitions itself talk to you about the inputs your TV have; and it do not support VGA. Output from PC is VGA. Without a VGA input with the TV, you can't connect the PC to TV. I think I'm clear. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Unable to Connect Laptop to Samsung LED TV


VGA is analog - HDMI is digital
if u have a cable w/o a converter it won't work unless your video card supports digital signal output through VGA port function. Please consult with your laptop's user manual for more information.

Connecting laptop VGA port to HDMI port on a TV
VGA to HDMI converter is required to connect a laptop to a TV with HDMI input. The VGA signal does not have an audio component. You need to connect an audio cable from the audio/headphone port on your laptop to the audio connector on your TV. There are HDMI converters with Audio input so you do not need to connect an audio cable to the TV. The audio is connected to the HDMI converter and then passes the audio with the video data to the HDMI cable to HDMI port on the TV. Check out these WEB site for these HDMI converters. http://www.aten.com/products/productItem.php?model_no=vc180 http://www.sybausa.com/productInfo.php?iid=1174 http://www.topbuy.com.au/tbcart/pc/Audio-VGA-to-HDMI-Video-Converter-Box-HD-HDTV1080P-p164633.htm

Were are the hdmi ports on my toshiba c660d153


Your laptop does not have HDMI port only VGA, you have two choices check if your TV has a VGA port and if it does you can connect the laptop to the tv (you will need a vga cable.) if tv doesnt have VGA connector then you could try finding a USB to HDMI adaptor for example:

What kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?


Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

What do I need and how do I connect my Toshiba L305 model PSLB8 050302f to my hdtv to view online tv?


I dont believe that laptop has an HDMI port on it. If you have an LCD TV then your TV may have a VGA or DVI input on it. You can connect your laptop to the TV by using a VGA to VGA or VGA to DVI cable. If you your TV doesn't have one of these input ports, then you're not going to get your laptop connected to your TV.

How do I connect my laptop to tv to use as monitor


It depends on the laptop and the TV. If both have a VGA port, then use a VGA cable between them. Make sure the VGA port is enabled on the computer (possibly in the BIOS) and then set the monitor properties. You may need to reboot the computer to get the TV on.

If the TV has HDMI input and the laptop also has an HDMI port then you need to check the TV specs. Some HDMI ports can accept a signal from a computer (often labeled HDMI/DVI) and others don't. If the HDMI port is compatible with a computer source, then use an HDMI cable between the two. Again make sure the port is active. If TV's HDMI port is not compatible with the computer, you will need a converter.

If the TV doesn't have a VGA port (and the laptop doesn't have any video port other than VGA), then you will need a VGA to component video converter (or VGA to composite video) depending on the inputs of the TV. See http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for some converters.

Note: the converters are needed since computers output in a different format than the TV input understands. For analog, the computer is RGB and the component video is YPbPr.

A few media PCs might have a TV out port. This would eliminate the need for a converter. Check the specs for the cable you need.

I hope this helps.

How to conect my laptop to LCD


It depends on the laptop connections. First make sure that your computer is sending data to the port (particularly VGA); you may have to access the BIOS to change the setting (often F1 or F2 on restart). If you have a VGA port on the laptop, get a video cable (VGA-VGA) and connect the two together (this is usually a blue port and you need M/M ends). Then enable in the graphics properties (right click on the display where there are no icons or running program). You want the section that lets you choose sending to the external monitor, the laptop monitor or showing the same contents on both. The version of your OS may alter which command you need (you can also access this in the Control Panel (Display). You may need to restart the computer with the TV on to get the computer to recognize the TV. Set the TV to have the source the PC input. Also connect the speaker cable from the laptop to the TV if you want to use the TV's speakers (there is an audio port next to the VGA port that I believe is a 3.5 mm jack (would need a stereo 3.5 mm m/m cable between the two). Make sure you select the optimum resolution of 1360 x 768.

If you have an HDMI port on the laptop (newer laptops), get an HDMI cable (m/m) and connect the two. Set the TV to DVI or HDMI source (depending on if you need the audio cables separate) and reboot the computer. Then enable the display, as above. I believe you still need the audio cable as well (should use a 3.5 mm stereo to RCA R/L (red/white) cable) look for the DVI audio next to the HDMI/DVI port.

I hope this helps.

(my understanding is that computer HDMI ports do not send the audio but you should check your laptop manual.)
