Look for an S-Video Port on the side of your laptop.. if you have one.. and your TV has similar S-Video port.. you can connect this way...

Once cable is connected..Press the Function Key and F5 to go to External screen..then set TV to your Video or Secondary Output Channel...

note.. some laptops have RCA audio/video ports as well..plug these to the tv and do the same

LCD screen is cracked and computer has only 2.0 usb ports no HDMI or Bluetooth how can I connect to another moniter or LCD TV


No it is not possible this way. Look for a VGA port.

I have a new TCL 55 inch smart wiffi ROKU TV what do I have to do to connect laptop so tv will be monitor wirelessly


You cannot have the TV as a wireless monitor for a XP machine.
Your ROKU TV will have HDMI input, but XP dos not have the ability to produce HDMI.
Using the composite input via a converter from the VGA output is possible.
see such a device here.

Hi I have a TV TXP46GT30B and Dell Laptop Inspiron 1545. I want to be able to connect my laptop wirelessly to my TV and use my tv to connect to the Internet so that I can surf. Is this possible? I have...


Hi N Crompton,
The easiest way is to connect your laptop to your TV using a VGA connector and turning your TV into a 46" Monitor...Unfortunately, Your TV does not come with a VGA Connector.7bcde1b5-bf22-4c99-9a88-4237cf21dad1.pngIt does, however, come with HDMI inputs....and unfortunately, your laptop does not have any HDMI outputs.afb6a85f-8042-4829-bede-c59ba4561cfe.pngbc9e37d2-c4db-4a21-a789-75d8b2ea27ca.png
What i would suggest is to buy a VGA to HDMI convertor...6011e135-a84f-4ed2-8f15-2876c734f3c1.pngThe downside to this is that you're going to have a cable stretching from your laptop to your TV.

To remedy that, I would suggest getting a wireless keyboard and mouse, and setting the laptop somewhere near the TV, and kick back on the couch.
Now, to take care of the Audio part, Audio does not go through the VGA to HDMI adapter, and your TV doesn't seem to have an 1/8" Audio In...If it did, and you have a set of decent speakers (Wired or Wireless) you can connect them to your laptop and get sound that way.

Hope this helps a little.
Get back with me if you have anymore questions or if i missed something.

Thanks and please Rate:)

My acer laptop screen has broke and i would like to know if its possible to connect it up to my 42" samsung plasma ?


Most laptops have a 15pin D-sub connection that allows you to attach an external display. Most LCD and plasma TV's also have a 15pin D-sub connector to connect a PC to.

Look on the side of your laptop and the back of your TV for this connector and if both have it just find a standard monitor cable to connect them.

Your laptop will have a function key to enable or disable the external display.

Compag laptop connected to LG HD TV. TV screen just show blues and greens, no reds. What do I need to do


To troubleshoot this, you must first start with the obvious. Check your cable connections/try replacing the cable. If this does not work you should then check the color settings in the tv. If that still does not work you can try connecting your laptop to a different monitor/tv. If the color shows up with the same problem, you know the issue is contained within the computer itself. Possibly bad VGA/HDMI Port or color management settings.

Toshiba Satellite L25-S1194 attached to TV monitor can't get display on laptop at same time HELP!!


Hello,

Connect your TV to the computer with an S-Video cable. Turn the TV on and choose the AV option (of your TV) to S-Video. It will tell you that there is no signal on the TV.Press the Fn key on the keyboard. While keeping that key pressed, press the F5 key. A small rectangle appears on the screen showing different connection possibilities (LCD, LCD +TV, LCD+CRT, TV only, CRT only). You can cycle through the options by pressing F5 repeatedly. You select the output option (TV + LCD).Release the keys . You will then have your two screens.

Note: I assumed you connect the TV through the S-Video. If your TV can be used as a monitor (it has a VGA adaptor), then with the F5 key select option LCD and CRT

Hope it helps

Samsung TV can't detect connection to laptop


Make sure you set the laptop to display at a resolution the TV can display, it seems best to start with 1024x768 then work up.

If you are using a VGA - HDMI converter it is possible you will not get a picture.

You should be able to set the laptop to 1024 x 768, plug it into the TV, select PC input on the TV remote, and the picture should appear.

If not, then check you have the monitor output on the laptop switched on, test it with another monitor to be sure.

If all the above still fails to work, and you've checked the cable the TV has a fault.

I hope this helps.

Connect Laptop to TV


It depends on what kind of TV you have. If you have a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, it may have a VGA connection already installed. If that is the case, all you need is a standard VGA cable to connect from your notebook to your TV.

If you have a TV without a VGA connection you will need a scan converter to convert your signal from VGA to RCA or composite video signal. These can be purchased online or from electronics stores like Radio Shack. You plug your VGA connection from the computer to the scan converter, then RCA or composite video cables from the converter to the TV.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

How to connect my Sharp LC-26DA5U to my computer as a monitor


There are two possible problems: 1. You are connecting a 15-pin (on the laptop) to the 9-pin (on the TV) connection. This isn't the video-in connection for the TV. The TV has a DB-15 connection near its DVI input connector. You should be using a 15-pin to 15-pin cable. The DB-9 connector on the TV is a serial port for servicing the TV. 2. You aren't enabling the external video port for the laptop. Try hitting Fn+F5 on the laptop to cycle between the three display modes: laptop only, laptop + TV, TV only. Make sure to wait a few seconds after hitting Fn+F5 to let the displays sync up.
