The port you're looking for looks like this:

It's called an SVHS or stereo VHS output port, and with an SVHS cable should be able to be plugged into a cable box.

Note that this is a ONE WAY PORT - it takes a signal FROM the notebook, not TO the notebook. If you want to view television pictures on your notebook you will need further hardware. This port is only for viewing your computer output through a television or other device.

Hp pavilion a1710n doesn't send to printer. Goes through every step,doesnt send. My laptop workds with the printer.


A few things come to mind. Are you sure the printer isn't a D4160??? The C4160 was sold in England. Anyways...

First, when you hit print a box opens up. On the top of that box make sure your printer is the one selected. It will have a green checkmark by it.

Second. Make sure the USB cable is connected between computer and printer. The Hp pavilion a1710n doesn't have a wireless network chip so it will need the USB cable connected for it to print.

I assume your laptop prints wirelessly and that is why it works and the HP does not.

Good Luck

Have knocked the cd drawer out of the drive when I fell over it after leaving it open. Can I put the drawer back into the drive?


you need to check if there are cables unplugged inside the box. there are two cables plugged in the cd rom (power and data) if there are 2 cables plugged in at the cd rom and the other end of it then its ok for you to screw the cd drive in the cpu.

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

I want to know if I can hook up a second monitor to this system?


The HP Pavilion a450n video card does not support 2 monitors. You can hook up a monitor and a TV at the same with the current video card it has. If you wanted 2 monitors you can replace the AGP video card with a new one that has 2 monitor outputs. You will need to get an AGP video card with 2 monitor outputs (DVI or VGA), open up the case, remove the current video card and replace it.
See the HP website for more technical information on this computer:

I hope this helps.

I have a philips tv model 47pfl5704d. what cable


IF, your PC indeed supports TV out, then the Cable usually is SVGA or RCA, connectors. The PC must be configured to activate BOTH screens, ie: enable desktop, to be spanned or mirrored, , the Resolution on TV should only generally be set to 800x600. The correct Drivers must be installed. Must connect to TV before ya start PC too.

How can i connct a HP Pavilion a6700f PC to a sony KDL 52xbr9 TV, no HDMI, no DVI, has USB 2 and 1394


It looks like your TV does have an analog VGA input. Depending on your video card, you can use a VGA cable to connect your computer to your TV.

Connect tv to computer


Be sure to enable the second screen through the windows display settings. Right click on the desktop background and select personalize (VIsta) or Properties (XP). Click on the settings menu (lower down on Vista, a tab on the right for XP) and look at the monitor setup. After you are connected via cable to the TV, go there, click on the second screen and select "enable this monitor", "extend desktop onto this monitor" or something of the like. Oftentimes it will not do it if you are not already physically plugged in so ensure that you do that first.
