The Dell M1210 hos only a VGA output or s-video output, both being analog. If you are connecting the M1210 VGA to the DVI input on the monitor then this will not work. You need to connect to the VGA input on the monitor.

    The monitor has 2 DVI-I ports, no VGA.
    I connect the computer to the monitor with an VGA to DVI analog cable.
    It works fine on an 10 year old laptop but not on the Dell en on my wife's new dell netbook.

Look for a Function key with a picture of 2 monitors on it, use this key in conjunction with the Fn key (bottem left), to enable external sources, if this doesnt work, navigate to display settings in the control panel and look for adavnced options to tick the option for dual display

No. It is not going to work.
VGA is an Analog signal. HDMI is a digital signal, that is why you need the box, it converts analog to digital.
You can get VGA to DVI and DVI to HDMI convertors because DVI is capable of using both - depending on the type of DVI you have.

I need to connect a VGA dell monitor my Toshiba Laptop


HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.

Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.

I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.

YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).

How can i connect my laptop to my tv?


This will depend on exactly which model of laptop and TV. Look at the TV and determine what ports it has. Then look at the laptop for the same information. You may need to enable the external video ports in the BIOS. Turn off the computer and press F2 repeatedly after turning the unit on. (Some computers use Esc, F1 or F10. There will be a quick splash screen with the information.)

Then it still depends. If your TV and your laptop both have a VGA port, get a VGA M/M cable. (Often this is blue - it's a D-sub 15 pin connector.) This is the simplest option. Turn off the TV and the laptop and connect the cable. Then turn on the TV and set it to the VGA source (look for a button marked Input or Source on the TV or remote). Then turn on the computer; with most modern OS versions, it should set the correct resolution. You will need to enable the external monitor. This will depend on the OS. In Windows 7, right click on the display (where there are no running programs or icons) and select Graphics Properties. Then set the monitors to use the external monitor. Click Apply and then confirm the setting. Note: you'll need to also connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the laptop's headphone jack and the TV's VGA audio input if you want to use the TV speakers.

If your laptop and TV both have an HDMI port, you may be able to use that cable. You'll need to check the details on the TV. Not all TVs will read the computer's signal on the HDMI port. (The data isn't the same as from a set-top box like a Blue-ray player or cable box.)

If the laptop has a DVI port, depending on the TV, try either a VGA to DVI adapter or a DVI to HDMI adapter.

A few older laptops may have have an TV out (looks like S-video) port. In that case, you can connect to a similar port on the TV with a dongle and the cables.

For a TV with only composite or component input and a laptop without a TV out option, you'll need a VGA to composite or a VGA to component converter. These convert the RGB signal from the laptop to one that the TV will understand (component is YPbPr). See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-composite-video/c10000-c11200-c11213.html?sorter=productname-en-asc or http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc for examples.

Please add more information about your laptop and TV for additional help.

Link ASUS laptop to Sharp Aquos LCD TV


No, a DVI to VGA adapter will not work. (The TV is looking for the digital signal from a set top box. This is different from the analog signal on the VGA cable.) You need a converter. Your best bet would be a VGA to component video converter. (I am assuming that the Sharp TV has a component video input.) This page has some examples: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc . Note a VGA to component video cable will not work. The VGA to component cables are for projectors that read the RGB signal. The component video signal is YPbPr.

Connect the VGA cable to the converter and the component video cable to the TV and the converter with the computer and TV off. Turn on the TV first and set it to the component video input and then turn on the computer. Then (assuming the VGA port is enabled - adjust in the BIOS if needed) set the computer's video output to the VGA port. (On my Windows 7 laptop, this can be done by right-clicking on the desktop. Choose Graphics Properties and set the display to the external monitor or both. Click Apply and then confirm the change (on the external monitor if using the single monitor). (VGA to Composite video converters also exist if you do not have an available component video input on your TV.)

If your computer is fairly new, you may have an HDMI port. Your TV may be able to read the signal with a DVI to HDMI cable. (It depends on the TV. Not all of them will read the computer's signal on the DVI port. Check the documentation for your model. TVs without a VGA port are less likely to support this feature.)

I hope this helps.

Your either going to need VGA or DVI. You need to check the back of your computer and monitor to see which type of connection you have. Then plug in the appropriate cable.

How to turn on rgb from lap top to tv.


In order to connect your laptop to your TV using RGB, you need an RGB adapter. RGB is also known as component video; it breaks up a video signal into red, green and blue. laptops do not have RGB outputs. However, many laptops have VGA, DVI or HDMI outputs. An RGB adapter connects the single VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable to an RGB cable, which is actually three different cables tied together. INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Connect either the VGA, DVI or HDMI (in the order of increasing video quality) cable to the VGA, DVI or HDMI port on your laptop, depending on what is available. 2. Connect the other end of the cable to the side of the RGB adapter with the single input. 3. Connect the RGB cables to the red, green and blue ports on the other side of the RGB adapter. 4. Connect the other end of the RGB cables to an available component input on the back of the TV. 5. Tune the TV to the component video input you used through your television's menu. 6. Turn on your laptop. The laptop should now display on your TV screen.

How can I connect my Desktop computer to my Hitachi 57F500 TV? I have an emachines desktop, running MS Win 7 connected from Monitor VGA port to DVI port on TV via Dynex DVI-VGA cable, but not getting any...


Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

How do I connect my dell laptop to my LG LCD TV


1. S-Video – This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here’s a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Most of the Widescreen monitors come with DVI as well as VGA connector. A VGA connector and DVI connectors are different in many aspects. First of all the DVI connector would be white in color and VGA would be blue.
VGA connector has 15 pins and DVI has 24 +1 pin
