    What video card are you using? I googled your model and your speak of the fn key is incorrect. You are using a desktop.

First of all do you have the right cables and output from your PC to connect to your HDTV? 2ndly does your PCs graphics card support HD?
If so Right click on your desktop, choose properties and then settings. depending on your video card you should be able to configure the output to your TV in here or in the Advanced section

How do i fix a split screen of my Toshiba c600d-t36b laptop


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
(the last two options are available if an external monitor is
connected):
? Built-in display only
? Built-in display and external monitor (simultaneously)
? External monitor only
? Built-in display and TV (or other external video device)
? TV (or other external video device)
? External monitor and TV
? Built-in display and external monitor (extended mode)
? Built-in display and TV (extended mode)
? External monitor and TV (extended mode)
? Swap-Switch primary display between internal display
and external monitor when using extended desktop

My HP Pavillion M70 monitor is saying "video cable connected?" when I try to use the monitor. I am trying to output my laptop to the monitor because my laptop screen is wearing out, but I cannot get it to...


go into the BIOS settings and tell it to use the LCD/Monitor as a display.

or

press fn key+(F5 or F7 or F8) 1x or 2x or 3x.....

Fn key combination. The Fn key is located at the lower left of the keyboard, normally between the CTRL and the ALT key. Toshiba uses Fn-F5 to toggle between the laptop LCD and an external display. IBM or Lenovo uses FN-F7, Acer varies with the model, using Fn-F5, Fn-F3, Fn-F8, Sony Fn-F7, Dell Fn-F8, HP or Compaq, Fn-F4. There are variations with the age of the laptop and not all manufacturers have standardized on a key combo across the whole range, but you can usually figure it out from the little graphics on the function keys that line the top of the keyboard.

I'm trying to connect my pc with the tv. I cant find the FN key


Most laptops have a 'FN' key on their keyboard, near the bottom-left corner.

Most desktop computers, especially those with a separate keyboard, do _NOT_ have a 'FN' key.

With your SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button, click anywhere on your "wallpaper".
Click Properties.
Click Desktop.
You should see two rectangles, representing the "standard" video-output, and the S-VIDEO output.
Click "extend my desktop" onto the second rectangle.

I have an IBM T40 Laptop and I wanted to display my video to the television screen via the SV output. When I hook everything up, all I see on the television is the Windows Desktop background, no icons etc....


You set it to Multiple Monitors (if you move the mouse, you will probably be able to see it on the TV once it "goes out" of the laptop desktop). You need to change output mode to external S-Video.

First of all try hitting Fn + F7 key to switch to Ext-S-Video. If it works, that's it, of course. If it doesn't, TV output is not enabled.

Right-click on the desktop to bring up the Properties, go to Settings. You'll see two monitor images there, 1 and 2.

Click Advanced, then go to Displays. You'll get CRT, TV and LCD. Turn on the TV button and tune your settings.

At this point, the hotkey Fn + F7 is enabled to cycle between LCD and TV.

If it still doesn't work and you see the blank desktop, go again in Display Properties, choose LCD as Primary Display, select Secondary, and verify that "Extend desktop on this display" is NOT checked.

How do send monitor signal to my tv


It depend on what input your TV has the what output the laptop has.
Ideally you would connect over VGA cable. Your Laptop is very likly to have a VGA out put but if your TV is old it may not have a VGA input.

If not you will need to connect Via S-Video cable which all TV's & laptops have. Note that neither VGA or S-Video will carry audio so you will need a seperate audio cable if you want the sound to come through the TV speakers. This is normall just a wire with mini stereo jack on each end.

Dont forget to rate me if this helps

How can I


Normally a laptop has an external video output in the form of S-Video, VGA, or HDMI. Once you have connected the laptop to the television through one of the available outputs. You will have to enable the external video out on the laptop. Normally this is done by pressing the FN and a labeled F key. Example: If the laptop was a HP you would press FN + F4 to enable the external monitor. Gateway, eMachines = FN + F4. Dell FN + F8. You will have to look at your keyboard close and look for what looks like a little monitor. That key + FN will most likely be how you enable the external monitor.

Once connected, you use the FN + F4(from example) to cycle through the video modes. The video modes are usually Laptop LCD and external monitor, external monitor only, Laptop LCD only,

If you would like to extend your desktop to the external monitor instead of clone the desktop than you will have to go into your display properties and click on the second monitor and check the box that states "extend the desktop onto this monitor". This will allow you to drag windows from the laptop LCD to the external monitor.
