If you're laptop has a VGA port, then it is compatible to VGA devices. This is the general rule with just about everything VGA, whether it's a TV or laptop, if there's a VGA port then it's VGA compatible. Keep in mind that most TVs are not made to be computer monitors, so you may not get the resolution clarity you are expecting. Also, some VGA compatible TVs that can achieve the clarity need drivers in order to work properly. If you plug it in to find that the you don't have a good picture, search the manufacturer's site to see if the TV requires drivers. You can also do a Google search and read some of the forums, they can be very useful.

Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

I want to connect my sony tritron tv to my hp laptop


If you Sony TV has a VGA video input socket then connect a VGA video cable to the TV and the other end of the VGA cable to the VGA video connector on your laptop.
Power up the TV and go to the Input selection Menu and select PC connector then boot up your laptop and the Windows video data will automatically to the TV.
You can toggle between the TV the LCD or both by pressing Fn key plus F4 key.

Want to know how to connect acer 3680 to tv


It depends on your TV

If your tv has a Computer VGA connection you can directly connect the VGA connector from the left side of the laptop to the connector on the tv

If there isn't then you could go buy a S-Video to RCA cable at radioshack and connect the S-Video port on the laptop to a video in connection on the TV

For sound you can connect the speaker/headphone jack on the laptop to the tv using a cable either going direct from 8mm to 8mm or from 8mm to RCA...either can be found at radioshack

Let me know if you need anything else!!

I have a inspiron1300,and i wondered if it is possibe to connect it to my philips hdready tv.am sure which cable to use


You never mentioned what model Philips TV you have, however I've researched several and most seem to have a VGA video port in the back of them. If you have one of these (15 pin D connector) on the back of your TV you should be able to purchase a corresponding VGA cable (you'll want female pins on one side of the cable and male pins on the other side) and plug one side into the VGA port on your laptop and the other cable into the TV. Then use your TV remote to select that input. Should work fine!
See item 8 in the attached user guide link to see what I'm talking about. http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/4/42pfl3403_98/42pfl3403_98_qsg_eng.pdf
I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck! If I can help you further, please let me know.

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.

What type to cable should I buy to connect laptop to tv


Youre laptop would have to have a video card that has a TV-out port... And for that you would have to run a S-Video cable from the TV-out port of your laptop to the S-Video port on your TV... I assume your TV has a S-Video port?

Connecting my laptop to my new TV


Hi there.
Check on the back of the TV for a VGA input port, if it has what you will need is a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo to mini stereo audio lead to plug into the headphone port on the laptop to audio in on the TV.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Want to connect my Sony vaio VGN-A250 to Sharp 19'' LCD TV


Your laptop will have a VGA output or possibly a S-video out. For the VGA you'll need a standard VGA cable. Plug the cable in to your laptop and the PC input of your TV. If your TV does not have PC input it may have a DVI input. IF it does you can use a VGA/DVI adapter to plug it in. If it doesn't have a DVI input you can use the S-Video output on your laptop with a standard S-video cable. After the connection to your TV is made you will have to toggle alternate display by pressing and holding your [Fn] key and pressing F4, or F5, or another F# key. It's the one that looks like a TV screen. Press once to turn on output, press again to turn off your laptop screen, press again to go back to laptop screen only

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.
