You should have a little blue fn button near your shift key and if you hold the and one of your function keys (usualy F5) with a picture that kind of looks like a tv screen shape it should switch between display options

How to connect packard bell pc tower to my baird tv


If your tv has an RGB/VGA port on the back, you can use a VGA cable. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Male_VGA_connector.jpg
If not, you will need to upgrade the video card in your computer to one that has the same kind of output as your tv's input (HDMI, Component, Composite, ect..) and make sure you have the proper cable to connect them. Once you do that, and you have changed your tv to the proper input, you should your computer displayed on the tv. You may need to adjust the screen resolution on your computer to make it fit you tv correctly.

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.

I have a TJ68 packard bell Easynote laptop, it will power up, but display screen is black and flickers. I connect a vga cable to an external monitor and can see contents of laptop on external monitor.


The fact that you can see the desktop on the external monitor means your LCD Inverter on the laptop is bad. The video card in the laptop is good, otherwise you would not be able to see the desktop on either screen.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. 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 so that proves your video card is ok. 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.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.


The lcd inverter can be purchased on ebay for less than $15. It is located at the bottom of the lcd screen. You'll have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen by removing the plastic or rubber bumpers that have screws under them. Normally there will be bumpers at each corner and maybe along the insides on the plastic strip. Remove the bumpers, the screws and pry the plastic strip off with a little force with your fingers. You will then see the lcd inverter at the bottom of the lcd screen.

Just put your computer's name and model in the ebay search followed by lcd inverter.

Actually it looks like your laptop uses the LED screen instead of LCD so it will not have the LCD Inverter. You will have to purchase a new screen. I found the one below on ebay.

Your TV must have a VGA in port for your to be able to hook your computer to your TV. All you need is a regular VGA cord.

Why wot it let my packard bell easynote r4250 connect to a tv through a VGA ports


There is not enough info here. Many things could be wrong. Are you actually plugging the VGA cable into the VGA port on the tv or computer? Does your tv even have a VGA input? Is your tbs input switched to the tv? Please contact me with questions.
