Cables to connect laptop to tv

I want to connect my laptop to the TV so that I can see Youtube on TV instead. What kind of cables should I use? Does it mean I'll need to connect my laptop to the sound system as well if I want to get better sound? Thanks in advance for your advice!

    Thank you so much for your quick response! My laptop is Dell Latitude D610. My TVs are Samsung TXJ2566 and Toshiba Theaterwide HD. Do I connect the 3.5mm to RCA comp cble to the laptop directly? Or do I connect the s-video to the comp cable? Sorry for these questions. As you can tell, I'm clueless :( !!

Yes you will need a 3.5mm to RCA/composite cable and you should also most likely have an S-video out on your laptop so you will need an s-video cable.
If you need more help give me exact make/model of laptop. Also what connections your tv has.
Thanks,
Lee

What kind of laptop (make and model) and what kind of TV (make and model) plus, the age of each of them. You'll probably have the most problems with the TV. If it isn't setup to accept a HDMI, USB, or network cable you're out of luck. The connection types on the TV will tell you the most. And not all TV are the same. If the TV is over 7 years old, it's probably not going to work.

what kind of cable are you connecting with? If you are using a Composite or S-Video cable perhaps you may want to use the VGA cable instead and see if that corrects the issue.

I have a toshiba satellite p755, it use to be able to hook up to my HD TV with the HDMI chord but now its not connecting..whats the problem?


Make sure all connections Power ,HDMI and any other connecting leads have secure dust free connections also check each lead for any kinks / bends .
Connecting a Toshiba Satellite Laptop to a TV is an ideal way to enjoy videos, photos and other media on the laptop on a much larger screen.
Satellite Laptops can be connected to TVs using VGA, S-Video and even HDMI, though the TV has to have compatible inputs as well.

Connect the RGB cable or S-video cable to an open input on the TV.
Depending on the type of TV, it may or may not have a RGB input.
S-video may have to be used instead.
Connect the 1/4 inch to RCA Y-cable into the TV using the same input as the VGA or S-video cable.
Connect the other end of the VGA or S-video cable and the audio cable into the laptop.
The video ports are on the sides of the laptop.
The audio cable should go into the headphone jack of the laptop.

I have a LG 47 inch Smart TV Mod No 47LM6200 TV. I connect to the TV to my Wi-Fi. My router is a new Netgear R6300. I am able to stream movies and YouTube videos to two or more laptops at the same time and...


I would try connecting a network cable to the TV and router directly. Sometimes the WiFi connection can be limited by interference or the conversion process. I personally for fixed devices use a direct physical connection and WiFi only for true mobile devices.

  1. 1 Determine what kind of inputs your TV has. Many sets have the HDMI, DVI or even VGA inputs common on most newer PCs. If you have an older TV with only an analog signal, you will have to get a video card that supports your TV's connection. To determine what kind you need, take a look at the audio/video inputs on the side of your TV. S-video is circular with a bunch of pins; composite video is yellow; and component video is red, green and blue.
  2. Step 2 Find out what kind of video output you have on your computer by looking at your video card. DVI is pretty standard on most computers manufactured in the last four years. Multimedia PCs will have DVI and HDMI. Of course, if you swapped out your video card to accommodate an older TV, your machine will not have either of these connections any longer, but will instead have the one that matches your TV.
  3. Step 3 Purchase cables to run from the TV to the computer. The video cables you need will have the same name as the type of connection on your TV. (For example, if you have S-video, look for an S-video cable.) Note that you will need a stereo-mini-to-RCA cable for the audio as well. All cables are available at most electronics stores. If you shop online, try MonoPrice.com to save some money. (See the link in Resources.)
  4. Step 4 Connect the cables. No matter what type you have, one end will go in the TV and the other into your computer's port (the video cable in the video card and the audio cable in the audio card). It will be fairly obvious what goes where due to the shape and coloring of the ports. Once both cables are hooked up, make sure the picture and audio on the TV both work. If not, check your connections.
