How do i connect my dell latitude D610 to my Ilo tv?


Computers have become all-out media centers, capable of playing movies, music, and video games and even of streaming live television. Modern computers also come with an assortment of ports and outlets that allow easy connectivity to other devices, including televisions. Today's HDTVs can display high-resolution images ideal for showing off the media available on your computer, and they're relatively easy to connect.

Determine which type of cable to use; it will depend on which ports both your computer and TV share. Older computers and TVs will only have S-Video or VGA ports. Ideally, your computer and TV will both have HDMI ports, which allows for high-definition video and audio transfer. Consult your owner's manuals for port identification before deciding on which cable to use. Connect the computer's video outlet, either HMDI, VGA, or S-Video, to the TVs corresponding video input. These will usually be on the back of the TV and will be clearly labeled. Turn on your TV and set it to the proper video channel, which will correspond with the type of cable you have used. Some TVs have multiple ports for the same connection. Just set the video channel to whichever port you have used--for example, "HDMI 1" or "HDMI 2." On your computer, right click on your desktop and highlight "Graphics Properties," prompting a submenu to pop up. Highlight and click "Output to TV." Your computer's images should now be displayed on the TV instead of the monitor.

Lenovo 3000 n200 built in camera not working in windows 7


Instructions

1

Identify why you need an HDMI connection from your computer. Because the 2764 does not have an HDMI port, you will need to obtain some sort of adapter to connect to an HDMI device. There are a number of different ways to achieve that connection.
2

Purchase an external USB video card with an HDMI output. These devices have a number of benefits, including the ability to display a different image on the HDMI output than that which is being displayed on the screen. One example of these devices is the Sabrent USB-2011 which can display a 1080p HD signal over its HDMI connector. Other devices will also include support for audio and send it along the HDMI wire with the video signal.
3

Use a DVI-to-HDMI adapter if you have a Lenovo ThinkPad USB Port Replicator with Digital Video. This device takes the computer's existing video card and displays its signal over DVI. DVI-to-HDMI adapters are both affordable and easy to obtain.
4

Convert the computer's VGA output directly to HDMI. Because VGA is an analog signal and HDMI digital, doing this requires a special piece of hardware such as the StarTech VGA to HDMI converter with audio. Simple VGA to HDMI cables will not work, due to the lack of digital output from the T400's VGA port.

Why is the dvi connection not working wih the monitor or do i need a hdmi connection?


On the laptop, did you "enable" video-output to the DVI port?
Most laptops have 3 modes:
* output only to the internal LCD screen
* output only to the external VGA/DVI/HDMI port
* output to both internal and external ports.

What manufacturer of PC laptop?
What model-number?
The key-sequence for choosing the mode depends on which computer you have.

How do I hook up my lap top to another monitor. pressing FN and F4 doesn't seem to work or I'm doing something wrong.


Most laptops have an auxilliary video output, usually a VGA port (usually the color is blue with 15 tiny holes) on the side or an HDMI port. You can connect a monitor through these ports, and the display that should show on the laptop's lcd will be also displayed on the monitor.

How to connect my Acer Aspire 5670 outgoing to my TV? I have an SV cable and I believe there is an sv output plug for it. I'm not very technical.


You laptop can connect to any television or display device with S-video input through the S-video/TV-out (NTSC/PAL) port, located on the right side of the laptop (this is the round whitish port located between the two USB ports and the ventilation slots.
The computer has also an external display (VGA) port by which the laptop can be connected to a display device (e.g., external monitor, LCD projector).This is the port on the right side nearest the end of the computer.

I am trying to connect my acer 5720z to my television. i have had it hooked up for about a year with no problems though the s-video port. just recently my apartment got struck by lighting and the svideo...


Lightning has damaged the S-video port on the TV and or the laptop. Take it to a repair shop, this is a hardware problem.
I would suggest getting a power board with a surge protection for the computer and for the TV.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.
