Depending on your laptop connections, they will decide what adapters you need. Just take the laptop to a Radio Shack or similar store and they can get you the right connections. You will need an adapter for the video and the audio separately most likely. My laptop, I use the headphone jack for audio and I have the two adapters connecting to an RGB jack. You also want to buy some extra RGB cables for more length between the laptop and tv. You may need some double ended female connectors for those too.

Then in order to get the tv to be a second screen, you need to go into your video driver. I use nvidia. You can access it from a right click on the desktop>properties>settings. Depending on your driver, you can extend the image on a second screen which is what I do or you can also have the same image on both screens.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and I would be glad to help you out.

If your TV has a VGA input or the laptop and TV have HDMI run the cable over choose the correct input on the TV "pc or hdmi" my asus auto detects the hdmi stream you may have to right click on the desktop go into video setting and choose the TV.

"No Signal" Message when using HDMI Inputs on 26" Proscan LCD TV


You MUST get HDMI Driver for your Video Card, it is NOT standard. You need to go to PC makers web site and download latest Video Divers for your PC, then you must set up Multiple Desktops, To do that you must first connect the TV, but leave OFF, connect up to PC, reboot, setup Video Card, turn ON TV, TV will have already been detected, On PC, Share the desktop, or Clone, whatever you wish, now reboot after saving settings. Now you set the TV for HDMI already and it should show you a desktop when chosen. You must select and setup TV, FIRST, then connect the PC. From then on, Turn the TV ON, then turn the PC ON, that way it will Always detect the HDMI port.
