I'd like to know how to connect my laptop to my tv (to watch movies and stuff). It's just that simple. I have a VGA cable, my laptop's a Dell, and I've tried hooking them up, but so far all I have is a dark screen on the TV and my laptop. Is there anything I'm missing here??
Once that you hookup the TV to you laptop you need to me sure that the second monitor is active, you can check it on the control pannel screen/config, also make sure of the resolution if this is ti high the sansui tv do not support it and jus get a black screen.
You probably need to tell your laptop to detect the second monitor, or somehow activate the video out function. How these things are done depends on your specific laptop model. Try looking in the user manual or on Dell's website page for your specific model of laptop.

Hello......Let's talk video....Your Tv has an S-video input and a VGA input....Chances are your computer's video card hay not have S-video output...It's small ,round...looks similar to a PS2 mouse or keyboard port.If it does...you can use the S-video(SuperVideo).If you computer is not equipped with this...You can use the VGA typacally used to connect the monitor to the pc...Depending how far apart the TV and the PC are..this can be easy...this determines the length of the cables you are to use...If you go with the S-video cable..It may be less expensive...if you go with the VGA cable..be sure to get one long enough...as far as the sound...since your tv has a VGA input...I may also have the sound input for your pc connection..This requires a cable with a 1/8" stereo plug on either end...You can connect one end to you tv and the other to the headphone jack on your pc....or you could just listen to the sound thru the pc fpr now....Let me know how this works out....I hope this was helpful....PEACE....
Hello Nvedia signals cannot be porcessed by Sansui Tv. You have tow options before you to connect your self assembled computer to this tV. The first one is try by reducing the resolution f VGA output. for that, go to Nvidea control [normally will be displayed at the right end of the taskbar] and chage relolution there. By default, the resolution will be 1024/768. Select it to the lowest; 800/600. If the TV display it, just advance it to the next highest; 960/600. If this does not help you, there is no other way than change the computer's video card to any other, which works on Windows Video Drive. Can be bought from local computer component market, insert it to one amoung the free PCI socket of the computer and do the next proceedings to change over video output from on board video out, and feed this video signal to yur TV. OK.
For making the physical connection between PC and TV first we need video cable. PC has S-Video port that should be connect to the S-Video input of your TV using S-Video cable. Connect the computer to the TV using VGA ports or via the DVI to HDMI cable. These Macs need Adapter for a VGA cable. RCA for audio, connect RCA to your PC and red and white colored sockets of RCA cable to TV (left audio-white, right audio-red). In your PC open the Display Settings and activate output to the TV screen. In your TV open the menu from that open the External inputs. And change the video to HDMI depends on the connection. You can also change the screen resolution of your TV using the Personalize and Display Settings options in your Control Panel on PC.
After giving the connections you can watch the movies and everything is running on laptop on TV.
if you want to set up a dual tv monitor system using via pc as a source you will need a VGA splitter usually 2 or more output. now how are you going to connect the 2 monitor and PC to the VGA splitter. first make sure your tv monitor is supported by service input for PC unit. then prepare the accessories needed. the VGA splitter and VGA cable. sample image for VGA splitter VGA cable or connector how are you going to hook up the splitter and VGA cable to the tv monitor and PC
you need 3 vga connector and 1 splitter to connect a dual monitor system.
connect one end of the vga connector to the pc unit and the other end to the input port of splitter.
now the 2 remaining vga connector connect to the output of splitter either of the port, then the 2 end wire you must connect to the input port ( pc service port ) of the 2 tv monitor. make sure you set up the right input either with the remote or at the tv unit to recognized the pc source.
you almost done the connections now at this point plug the tv monitors, plug the dc adapter supply of the vga splitter and lastly turn on the pc unit to view movies. i hope it will help you just ask me if you have further questions thanks for choosing the fixya.
sounds to me like a connection problem. If the compaqs output is vga, you need to convert the input (tv side ) to hdmi, component, s-vidio... what ever you can find. Typically when you hook up your computer to a flat screen or such, its best to try to use the hdmi ports or the rpg. But if thats not available you need to take the outout from your laptop ( whatever type that might be and input it into your flat screen tv. If you input laptop into tv under ( eg..HDMI) then when you VIEW it you need to select the correct source on your flat screen. Such as hdmi or pcmi or rpg.I know that the do sell alot of cables that adapt from one type of connection to another. Typically only one cable is required from the laptop to the flat screen. If you think about it you are only using the flat screen as a monitor.
yes sir..i think you must looking and buy VGA adapter 15 to HDMI complete with the HDMI cable set. you can find this adapter at the computer spare part store or electronic part store. not cheap but very usefull for you in the next day. is very easy to connecting...plug you adapter to the output VGA VAIO.. connect the HDMI cable to adapter (like USB) and the rest to the input at your samsung lcd...good luck..
