Broken Laptop Screen

So i had a stoke of bad luck and my laptop fell off the table, the screen is cracked and needs to be replaced, it will cost me 500+ to get it repaired so i was wondering if anyone could tell me exactly how hard it would be to buy the lcd screen and repair it myself, i've built countless desktops in my day so i'm good with computer hardware but have never delt with laptops before as far as building, so if anyone knows what it would take to do this please let me know. I don't know if it makes a different but the laptop is an alienware area-51 m5550 15. 4" screen, also if anyone knows where i could get the parts needed for this as well it would be very much appreciated.

Connecting A Laptop To Tv

I am interested in connecting my laptop to my television. My tv has a 4 pin s-video input, but my laptop only has a vga input. I am looking into getting a vga to s-video adapter, but i don't know if it will work. My tv does not have hdmi, so that is out of the question. All of the websites i have looked on say i need to make sure my vga card will support tv out. So my questions are: will this vga to s-video adapter work? Should i just order it on e-bay? And how do i check that my vga card supports video out. *My tv is a toshiba and my laptop is an hp , it has windows 7 if that makes any difference

Connecting Laptop To Tv

Can i connect my laptop to my tv? What would i need? Where would i plug the cables?

Answer:- all you need is a certain cable to connect your laptop to your tv. There is a cable called an s-video. You can find these cables almost anywhere and they are pretty cheap. Most tv's have this plugin. But the image quality is not all that great. If you have a hdtv you are better off with the vga cable (if your laptop and tv has this pug-in).compared to the s-video cable, the image quality of the vga cable is way better.

Then i pressed input on my controller and went down to hdmi 1 and nothing appeared on the screen. Is there something im missing here?

Problem Connecting Laptop To Tv

Connecting Laptop To Lcd Tv

I am having a terrible time getting my laptop computer hooked up to my lcd tv. I want the contents of the computer's screen to appear on the tv (not vice versa). I was hoping someone could offer a solution. Here's the situation: the laptop has a female vga port. Simple enough. The tv is a sony kf-60we610 rear projection lcd, circa 2003. I have a few pictures of the ports on the back of the tv:

As you can see from the images, the tv has a female dvi port but i'm not sure what kind of dvi port it is. It is definitely not a dvi-d. I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures but the horizontal slot along the left side of the port is actually "fake". In other words, it's not really a slot that a male pin can fit into. A male version of this dvi port must not have the horizontal pin because the female (on the tv) does not have an opening for it. I know i can use a vga to component video (y/pb/pr) converter but i was hoping for a cheaper solution. I was also wondering if i am barking up the wrong tree: do i even need to connect to the tv's dvi port? As you can see from the images, the tv has an s-video port. Would it be possible (or better) to somehow connect the computer's vga to the tv's s-video? Is this even possible?

Connecting Laptop To Panasonic Tv

I would like to connect my laptop to my tv? My laptop is a toshiba satellite l350-203 (with windows vista home) to my panasonic tx-28ps12 television. I have a vga to scart cable, as per instructions from multiple websites. My monitor settings are to duplicate the monitor onto the crt (fn f5). I have checked with microsoft that the drivers are updated. The laptop seems to be doing what it's supposed to, the problem is the telly. All that i'm getting is buzzing, with diagonal white/grey lines on black. No duplicated monitor. It changes frequency of buzzing when i scroll with my mouse and change web pages, but i have no image at all on the telly. I have tried doing an auto tune (which can't be done to an av channel, only a normal channel, if you have an aerial connected. My sky box, dvd player, and vcr have all done the whole plug into the scart and play. It's only the laptop that isn't. I would like to watch my avi films on a proper screen.

Connecting Laptop To Tv Problem

I recently purchased a vga cable to connect my laptop to my tv, it's an older tv, but i have a converter for it so i plugged the red yellow and white cables into the corresponding ones on the converter which is attached to the tv, the vga end of the cable i inserted into my laptop. The screen on my tv remains static, and when i go into the the windows mobility center to add a monitor it can't detect it. What am i doing wrong? What can i do? Or is my tv just to old despite the converter?

Connecting Laptop To Tv Through Dvd Player

Ok so i have a little dilemma here im trying to figure out. I wanna plug my laptop to my tv and i wanna know if its possible to do this through a dvd player.

Hp Xp Laptop Not Connecting To Netgear N300

I recently bought a netgear n300 from best buy after having my 2nd linksys within 2 years die on me. I connected my gaming desktop computer(windows 7) *wired* and my laptop (windows xp)very easily *wireless* and fast. I then tried my wifes( hp 6515b amd turion 64 x2 tl-50" windows xp service pack 3. ) And it recognized my netgear n300 using hp wireless assistant, but then i get an ongoing message after entering the password. Which is correct i've checked and rechecked. The on-going message says " waiting for the network to be ready" or " waiting for the network" in general. Every other piece of equipment i have has picked it up no problem. I've utilized my n300's security for wpa2 at first, but once i started having problems i downgraded it too wpa. Thinking this would reslove the issue because my original linksys was wpa security, but theres been absolutley no change. I've heard rumors about windows xp sp3 not being so compatible with wpa2. I've searched and searched for drivers for this machine if anyone has any idea on what to do please give me a shout.

Connecting Laptop To Tv Flashes Colors

I am trying to connect my laptop to my tv so that i will have a bigger monitor. My laptop has vga out and my video card should support the tv out signal. The tv has rca-component. So, i ran the vga from my laptop and plugged the component cables into my tv. I know there is something you have to do on your computer to transfer so to speak the video onto your tv. I went in and changed it to "clone" monitor 1 and that didn't work. So then i chose to just use monitor 2(tv) that didn't work so well either. After adjusting the resolution, i could see a lil static and then i saw a flash on my computer screen on the tv then it started being flashes of colors and static with the computer screen showing every few seconds through all the static. Please help me be able to see this on my tv. And yes i know i need separate audio. I already have that cord too. Ready to go, if i can just figure it out.

Connecting Xbox 360 To Laptop For Internet

I have vista ultimate. I am using a d-link wireless router. So ive been looking around on the internet for a way to connect my xbox 360 to my laptop, my laptop has a wireless connection. Ive tried several different articles including ones from here and on other sites, but non seem to work. The main problem is, it says my xbox 360 connection, is unidentified and when i try to diagnose it just says try automatically getting new ip address. Also i cant bridge connections because it says i need to have 2 high-speed lan, that are not being used through internet connection sharing. Also every time i try and make sharing allowed for my wireless connection, it says an error occurred while trying to make this shared. I am getting so frustrated that i cant get this too work, so if anyone needs any more information that might help you solve this, ill update it right away. Any help would be greatly appreciated. *Update* i recently found that the problem might be my router conflicting with my setup so i have to change the address.

Connecting Laptop To Tv Monitor By Vga Cable

I have a laptop (with display at 1366x768) and i have a vga cable connecting to a tv monitor. When i have the settings at 1366x768, my laptop display is great, but the tv monitor displays the screen small and centered to the right, and doesn't show the full screen. If i put the settings at 1280x768, my laptop screen gets a little fuzzy, but shows good on my tv monitor. Is there a way i can have it so the tv monitor is in its best display setting while having my laptop at a different display setting? Or any other help fixing the problem? I want both laptop and tv monitor to show the full screen, i do not want it as one extended screen.
