You need to toggle to the external display by holding the Fn key + F7 or F8. Look at your keyboard and you'll see little TV screen icons. You can also go to start/control panel/display settings or right click on your desktop and access the display properties.

There is usually two tabs with two displays and the active current display in from. Click the other and adjust the resolution and type using the drop down menus.

You might need to consult your TV manual as well to make sure your in the right input mode.

Ibm thinkpad wont connect to LG TV


Lower the screen resolution to 720 dpi.

Another issue is the reference to RGB. Is it the 3 cable (YPBPR) or the standard 15 pin VGA? You may need a converter.

Connected laptop to hdtv via rgb lead but no sound from 2nd monitor(tv)


Sadly, RGB cannot carry sound. In order to hear the laptop sound on the television, You'll need to get an 1/8" headphone connector to RCA (White and Red plug) cable and connect it to the same input as the video is plugged in.

I want to connect my Sony Vaio VGN-NR120E to my TV Samsung. But I have no idea how to do that. Could you give me advice ...


Hi,
Your Sony vaio does not have any TV-out port to output the display on any analog TV. You can use your VGA (by using VGA cable) port to output your laptop on LCD / Plasma / LED TV (with a VGA port also)). If you still want to project to analog TV via the VGA port, you need to find a VGA to RGB adaptor. But bare in mind, it's hard to find one.
VGA port is like the port on computer monitor. RBG consist of three colored port.
Good luck ;)

I have been connecting my Sony Vaio VGN-FE21M for several months with the LG LCD monitor to watch TV while online. Then yesterday all of the sudden the laptop shows blank screen, but the LG monitor is...


I need to know what operating system you're using (like windows vista). However, it seems like the control has moved to the LG screen, and not laptop. You can set several options when connecting a monitor to a laptop - both screens are available, one screen is off and the other screen is off.

Please post your operating system so that I guide you how to change these settings.

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

Connecting Toshiba Lap Top to NEC LCD TV


From user manual (page 68):
Your computer comes with a built-in display panel, but you can also
connect an external display device to an available video port, as
follows:
❖ An external monitor or projector via the RGB (monitor) port
❖ A TV, VCR, or DVD recorder via the S-video (TV-out) port
Before connecting an external monitor or video projector, configure
your computer for the type of device you are connecting. To do this,
refer to the documentation for your operating system and devices

So you have to use an RGB cable or a S-video cable : your cable should be plugged into 15 pin VGA port in your PC and plug it into a correspondent port in your TV.
Try also S- video and select correponding input in your TV set (Both connection type DO NOT carry sound: use your audio connector from PC to TV audio input.)
Configure your extended screen using your manual instruction:
Once you have connected an external display device, you can
choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or
both simultaneously. The quickest way to change the display output
settings is to use the display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order:
❖ Built-in display only
❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously
❖ External monitor only
❖ Built-in display and TV
❖ TV only

Can i connect toshiba satellite a205 to tv?


Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...

I want to use plasma tv as external monitor


Your laptop is not set to enable the external video output.

Most likely, your laptop has a key that says "RGB/LCD" or something similar on it. This key cycles through the various video output options, enabling the laptop's LCD, the external RGB output, or both simultaneously. Most laptops require you to hold down the function key ("FN") when pressing the "RGB/LCD" key to cycle through the options.
