The laptop should connect to the tv through the vga port. Just get a cable that is the correct gender on both ends and make sure the mode in the computer is set so that it outputs the vga signal from the graphics card. Maybe look in the control panel for settings.

Can not connect hdml wire to my philips led tv with my dell laptop. what to do


If your laptop does not have a HDMI port then you need a VGA to HDMI converter. Connect this converter to your laptop and then connect it to the TV using a HDMI cable. You also need to connect the audio out port on the laptop to the audio in on the TV. You can get a combined audio input with some HDMI converters.
Check out this WEB site.

Can you help with connecting a laptop VGA to a philips hdtv lcd (model #32pf7421d) with a component cable? The laptop recognizes that it is connected, but nothing comes up on the TV except for...


Check your laptop with the same VGA cord on some projector or a monitor. If it works there, then there is a problem with your TV's VGA switching circuit. If it does not work, then there is problem with either the VGA cord or laptop's VGA port. To rule out the possibility VGA cord , replace it with new one. Please give the feedback for this so that further diagnosis can be done, if you are comfortable with the TV's electronics.

I can't connect my pc to my philips tv


If you are connecting it via HDMI or VGA try pressing Windows Key + P and select Duplicate.
If this doesn't work, make sure you are on the right channel on your tv to actually do this.
Additionally check the manual on what it supports... My old Philips had a DVI input, but this did not work with my DVI out, but by putting two VGA adapters on the connection, I got it to work.
Hope this helped you out
- Cheers

I have a inspiron1300,and i wondered if it is possibe to connect it to my philips hdready tv.am sure which cable to use


You never mentioned what model Philips TV you have, however I've researched several and most seem to have a VGA video port in the back of them. If you have one of these (15 pin D connector) on the back of your TV you should be able to purchase a corresponding VGA cable (you'll want female pins on one side of the cable and male pins on the other side) and plug one side into the VGA port on your laptop and the other cable into the TV. Then use your TV remote to select that input. Should work fine!
See item 8 in the attached user guide link to see what I'm talking about. http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/4/42pfl3403_98/42pfl3403_98_qsg_eng.pdf
I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck! If I can help you further, please let me know.

Connecting a pc to a TV is quite simple. Your PC has either a vga out or HDMI port. Just get the right cable and connect to your vga port on the TV or HDMI port on your TV.

This way you can even have the two screens running, alternatively press Fn and the appropriate F key to switch off the laptop screen.

Your sound will still be thru your PC speakers.

How to connect acer laptop to philips tv to use tv as monitor


If your TV has a VGA input you can connect the laptop using a standard monitor cable. If the TV has component video inputs, you can get an adapter cable with a VGA plug on one end and the appropriate RCA plugs on the other.

Without these inputs, you can't connect the laptop directly. You will need a converter to switch from the computer's VGA output to a standard video signal to feed to the TV. Here is a website with a sample converter. (I don't know this site. It's just one I picked from a Google search as an example.)

Connect to the VGA port on the laptop, using a standard video cable.

Here is how VGA port looks like on your TV:
