you should have a button that you have to press to get it to switch over, on mine i have to press and hold the Fn key then press the F4 key might not be the same on yours but you should have a f something key that has what looks like a little screen on it that is to switch the output if that does not work try hooking up your laptop just like before, and then restart it. good luck

You may need to set up the video card to see the TV so you can display the computer on it.Somewhere in the setting for your video card should be settings for that.

You need to change the resolution settings for the secondary display within Windows (control panel). Another problem could be that you need to make the laptop output video though the VGA port by using the FUNCTION key (usually somewhere on the lower left portion of the keyboard) and the EXTERNAL MONITOR key (usually one of the F* keys). The function key my be abbreviated "FN" and the ext monitor key will usually have a small picture of a monitor or something and the F* keys are F1-F12 located at the top of the keyboard. The function key needs to be held down while pushing the ext mon key. Kinda like holding down the SHIFT key to make CAPITAL LETTERS.
Sorry if I'm being too descriptive or if you already know how to do this.
As far as the resolution to use, I'd start by setting it to it's lowest possible value and then you can work your way up by trial and error. Once it starts working on the lowest (usually 800x600), select the next highest and press apply. If it's a resolution that your TV can handle, you'll continue to see a picture on it. Otherwise it will display the "No Signal" message. Just wait a few moments and the 15 second approval timer in windows will expire and it will set it back to the resolution that you had working last.
Another thing to try is rebooting your laptop (with the TV already connected to it). This might cause Windows to auto detect the required resolution required by your TV and set it by itself.
You'd think with all the super-smart gadgets and multiple versions of Windows that we have today that they would've conquered this kind of problem already. But many of us still deal with this sh*& everyday.
Maybe we should set up Mr Gates (Microsoft) and Mr Hounchooleemuhngow? (Samsung) on a date so they can work some bugs out. But that might go awry, two swollen-headed super-powers at the table....
Bill: "No, no, no, Mr. YungCheeMihn. You need to submit drivers to us for your TV's to be recognized by the Windows platform."
Samsung: "Noa! Yua buy Samsung ricense for yua windo to use ow TV!"

Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

Im trying to connect my laptop/pc with lg lcd 36 inch tv with vga cable, but its nt working......please help me out.


Assuming that the LCD TV accepts a computer, what resolution is it set to and what is the maximum resolution of the TV. They must equal.
Have you pressed the correct function button on your laptop to turn the VGA output socket on?
Check your laptop manual for instruction on the last item
Hope that helps.

Is it possible to connect the emachines E525 with an LG LCD tv if so how?


It is possible to connect your laptop to any LCD TV. For which you need to locate the external VGA port on your laptop. As your Laptop doesn't have S-Video port you would have to deal with the VGA port.
There are several adapters available in the market which can solve your problem:VGA to RCA orVGA to S-Video orDual VGA cable
Your LCD TV should be equipped with all the ports mentioned above that are:RCA (AV)S-VideoVGA In
But as I don't know the model Number of your TV I don't know whether your TV has S-Video or VGA ports but the RCA (AV) are the most common ones which I am pretty sure you would have.
Here are some pics of the cables.
^Dual VGA cable
^VGA to RCA or S-Video
You can buy these cables from the market and easily connect your system to the TV.
If you need further help, please feel free to contact me.

How do I connect my Laptop computer to my LCD TV?


Every laptop has at least a VGA (computer video connection) and s-video cable port. A VGA cable is preferred if you want to be able to read text on your LCD TV. Check to make sure that your LCD TV has a VGA connector. It's a port that accepts a 15-pin connection so it's pretty easy to spot if it's there. It's just like a computer monitor cable if that helps. Should be able to find it at any local retail store that carries computers. VGA or RGB cable.

Connecting to a P.C


It it really has 11 pins I'm not sure but then my guess is that this is the service port connector which normally should have 9 pins. A vga connector has 15 pins and LG (as far as I know) uses standard 9 pin serial ports for service and plain old dvi or vga ports for connecting a computer.

Please visit Hardware Book for more info on connectors and cables.
