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 :( !!

Re: Connect laptop to TV
The 3.5 mm-composite cable will go from your headphone jack on the left side of your laptop out to your TV. The S-Video will go from the back of your laptop to your TV. Unfortunately your samsung doesn't have an S-Video though there are converters you can get to downgrade from s-video to composite. Your toshiba though should definetly have an s-video. If you need anything else let me know. I hope you find this worth of a Fixya rating. Thanks, Lee

Hi there, unfortunately there can be a problem with power insufficiency... if you have two USB connectors side by side on the back of TV set , please use Y Usb cabel and connect both in TV set and the other end to HDD. Or if your HDD comes with external power supply ac adapter connect it first. Then try again.Tnx
You can use the VGA cable which has 15 pins at both ends. For sound, you will need mini stereo phone plug at both ends.
You will have to use the combo key Fn and either F5, 6, or 7 to select the internal, external, both.
Make sure to set the video resolution to the native resolution of this TV otherwise you will get 'Format nor supported' on the screen.
I assume you know how to connect the VGA cable and which function key is used to activate the second display. You will have problems if the laptop display size is not supported by the projector. Many older projectors will not work with wide screen laptops.
when you connect the projector, Just press the presentation mode on your keyboard, Fn + (Presentation Key), Sometimes F5 or F8!
Then you will see your desktop on the projector screen.hope this helps
The Dell Latitude D630 has a 15 pin VGA port that can connect to an external monitor or projector. For detailed information go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag"(serial number) of the laptop. Confirm this is the model you have and select “manuals” on the left side column. Select “Get manual” and select the language option. You can view or download the “User’s Guide” in different formats. After you choose the format you want, select “Using the Display” for info.

I have similar problem. I'm using the HDMI connection from my PC to the monitor and when I connect my audio out from the monitor I get hissing and popping sounds along with the audio. It sounds pathetic, I also hear the music and audio along with the hissing and popping.
If I connect the audio to the back of the PC the sound is crystal Clear. I am using Vista 64 bit with NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT video card. Trying to Google to see if others are are seeing the same problem. I just got my monitor on Oct 6.
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
