Yeah you should be able to, but you may need to buy a VGA chord that is double sided. There should also be a headphone/audio out hook-up that will allow you to use the speakers on the TV. I so this during LAN's makes everything easier.

Want to use TV as monitor for laptop


There is no way to hook the TV to the laptop. You can hook the laptop to the TV but not the other way around. It is done with a VGA monitor cord. The same one that you connect to your regular monitor. Your TV will have a plug labeled VGA.

Can i hook my 47inch tv to the monitor


You can't hook you TV to the monitor itself, rather the computer.
If your PC has a wide white connector (DVI) that is supplying signal to the monitor, you could use a DVI to HDMI adapter cable to connect your PC to your TV. This is also possible if your PC uses a small blue connector with 15 pin holes (VGA) by using a VGA cable to connect your PC to your TV.

I just hooked up my HP Pavilion 9000 Laptop to my Vizio TV and put the TV on correct setting. It is not working on the TV, any ideas? I went on Display setup and kept trying to connect but it says the...


If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.
