Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Hello, i am trying to hookup my hp laptop to a sony trinitron tv. I have an
s-video cord hooked up to it right now and a the laptop said that it had to install something and when it tried said that there was a problem. what should i do now?
Let me explain on how to connect the TV to HP notebook.
There are two ways to connect the TV to the notebook. One is with the S-Video cable and another one is HDMI cable. (If you computer had HDMI port)
Connecting notebook and TV with S-video cable:
You need to get the Svideo cable and connect it to the notebook Svideo port to TV Svideo port and press Fn+ F4 to get the notebook display on the TV.
For the first time pressing the Fn+F4 keys, you will get the display on the TV and there will be no display on the Notebook.
If you press the Fn+F4 for second time, you will get display back to the notebook and Tv screen becomes blank.
By pressing the same keys again will show the display on both the screen.
Samething connecting with the HDMI cable, if your computer had HDMI port.
If you won't get the display on the external screen even after following the correct process, then once you need to reinstall the display driver.
If the issue persists, then you have to check with another cable.
Note: No need to install any software on the notebook to connect the TV to the notebook.

The FN button should be somewhere on your computer. It says FN and has a box around it. When you press it and another key that something on it inside a box it will activate that command.
