Yes you will need a vga lead this will attach to the vga outlet usually on the side of your laptop with 9 pins but you will have to change your computer settings to an extended desktop
click start control panel display adjust resolution another window will open with number 1 and 2 with a detect and an identify tab once you have identified the extended desktop click apply
hope this helps

Type of Cord to hook Laptop to TV


You need a standard VGA cable to go from the laptop to the TV. Keep in mind that the sound will still come from the laptop not the TV speakers. You can get a cable here if you need one.

I just purchased a vizio 37 in tv. I wanted to know about the best hook up for the tv to the direct tv box.


If your Direct TV box is HDTV compatible then the best connection would be HDMI, and Componant Cables (Red, Green, Blue, w/Red, White) would be the second choice.

If your Direct TV box is not HDTV compatible only SD compatible, the best connection would be S-Video (S-Video cable with audio cables), Composite Video (Yellow, w/Red, White), or Coax cable.

All of the above cables can be purchased at your local Radio Shack, Best Buy, Walmart etc..

I have a vizio vw32L40a and the screen is too wide. there are only wide and stretch settings, no normal setting. the screen is too wide for the tv.


6/09 I had the same problem when receiving the signal over the air with the input set to TV. Perhaps the signal strength or type was varying. At any rate, after I hooked up HD cable and watch from that input, the problem no longer occurs.

Trying to hook compaq presario laptop to philips lcd digital tv


hey fox,
sounds to me like a connection problem. If the compaqs output is vga, you need to convert the input (tv side ) to hdmi, component, s-vidio... what ever you can find. Typically when you hook up your computer to a flat screen or such, its best to try to use the hdmi ports or the rpg. But if thats not available you need to take the outout from your laptop ( whatever type that might be and input it into your flat screen tv. If you input laptop into tv under ( eg..HDMI) then when you VIEW it you need to select the correct source on your flat screen. Such as hdmi or pcmi or rpg.I know that the do sell alot of cables that adapt from one type of connection to another. Typically only one cable is required from the laptop to the flat screen. If you think about it you are only using the flat screen as a monitor.
