Neighbor called me, she had no picture on her monitor. Having no luck, I took the monitor home. Replaced the vga cable with one I use to hook my lap top to my television.

How do i hook lap top up


Most Laptops have a VGA output port. You would just hook this to the VGA input of the TV for video (picture).
You would then need to hook an audio cable from the laptops headphone jack to the TV's VGA's Audio Input jack.
Newer laptops have a HDMI output so that is easier and can hook directly to the TV's HDMI input for both video and audio.

Toshiba lap top half screen rainbow lines


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

How do I hook up my lap top to project onto my 42hdt79.


I got it to work using an HDMI output on my laptop. If you are using the VGA connection then you will need to buy a convertor to get it to work. The problem with this TV is that the resolution is 1024x1080 so the picture doesn't look quit right in a when using windows, but video playback looks good.
