How you connect to your tv is not so much a matter of OS as it is dependent on what type of video connections are available on your laptop whether RGB, S-Video, mini-display port to DVI, or HDMI.
Once the tv is connected then you will need to right click your desktop and choose whether you want the tv to be a clone display (desktop to show on both your laptop screen and the tv, or use the extended desktop setting to have half the screen be on the laptop and the other half to be on flat screen tv.
It is usually a vertical deflection circuit problem. Here's the basic troubleshooting:
Make sure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.
Press MENU button. If a small horizontal line appears at the center of the screen, you have lost vertical sweep on your TV. The protection circuit shuts down the picture to protect the tubes from burning a line across them. The intermittent problem may indicate a loose solder. Try resoldering the vertical output IC. The IC along with the B+ feed resistor back in the sweep power supply is most probably bad or has a loose solder.
Press the DEVICE and MENU
buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold it for 5 seconds to
activate the Error Code Operational Check. The status LED indicator
will then flash denoting a two digit code.
Count the number of flashes then pauses for about a
half second then flashes again. The first number of flashes indicates
the first digit of the error code and the second number of flashes
indicates the second digit of the code. For example, if the error code
is "24", the LED will flash 2 times, pauses, then flashes 4 times. The
error code is repeated a total of 5 times. Error 24 indicates a vertical deflection circuit failure.
Please let me know the code you'll and I'll tell you where the problem lies and how to fix it.
The problem is the cable. Those converter cables rarely work. they can't translate the scan rates properly. You need a converter box for the video signal, and get a cable to plug into the headphone jack on the laptop to send sound to the audio input on the TV. Here's a link to an example of the type of box you need to get the video working.
Does this help A standard video signal is actually a series of still images, flashed on screen so quickly that we believe we are watching a moving image. The typical frame rate used in North America is 60 frames per second (60Hz) meaning that a TV would display 60 individual still images every second. Sub-field drive is the method used to flash the individual image elements (dots) on a plasma panel. For each frame displayed on the TV the Sub-field drive flashes the dots 8 times or more, meaning that the dots are flashing 480 times per second (480Hz) or more. (Example: 60 frames per second x 8 sub-fields = 480 flashes per second).
