Connect Laptop To Vizio / Hdmi Tv Monitor

How do i connect my laptop (acer) to vizio/hdmi tv monitor? I don't have a cable box. I bought the connector cable already. But i don't know how to switch from tv cable to laptop monitor. And because i bought the television in second hand, it doesn't come with the user's manual. But i know it has a duo function. Can someone please provide step by step instruction to help me set this up? I should be able to use the remote control to change the setting.

Connect Hp Pavilion Dv6000 To Vizio Lcd

How do i connect hp pavilion dv6000 to vizio lcd? I bought monster vga cable but it doesn't work. My laptop rgb input doesn't have the two holes to lock it in. Answer:- the holes don't matter as long as the cable sits in there and once it is in there, go to the control panel and adjust your settings in the graphics card settings. If it gives the option, select the monitor as the output instead of the notebook, good luck.

Connect Tv To Laptop

How would i connect my laptop to my tv? I have a studio 17 laptop with vga and hdmi outputs and a tv with standard yellow, white, and red rga inputs. Any help on what i would use to connect to tv? I have external speakers so audio is not a problem. Answer:- unfortunately, vga and hdmi are not compatible with the composite rca jacks on your old low-definition boob-tube tv. Don't even think of buying one of those vga-to-rca cables. That will never work. Those are intended for video cards with specially-built vga ports that can send out a composite signal, and will not work with just any vga port. The vga port on your studio 17 is not one of those specially-built ones. If you want to connect your studio 17 to an old boob-tube low-definition tv, you need a signal converter box that can translate vga to composite. I would strongly recommend against that though, because the picture you get on that low-definition boob-tube tv will be extremely poor. Old low-definition boob-tube tvs are utterly unsuitable for use as computer monitors. Vga and hdmi works best with high-definition flat-panel tvs.

How To Connect Tv To Laptop ?

How can i connect my tv to my laptop? Do i simply have to buy a cable to watch movies, (or listen to music) stored on an external hard drive, via my laptop into my tv. I'm under the impression that it's not difficult, but, if you don't know the name, or code, of the cable, it then makes it a tad more difficult. Answer:- if your television has a vga socket then you just need a vga-vga cable to connect the laptop. Note that vga does not carry sound, so you'll need a 3. 5mm stereo jack to 2x phono lead to connect the computer's headphone socket to the tv set audio input sockets. If the laptop has an hdmi socket then you just connect that to the tv set with an hdmi lead. This will also carry sound. Most tv sets have an s- video input and many laptops have an s-video output socket a standard s video lead will carry pictures to the tv, but you'll have to use the 3. 5mm to phono lead to carry the sound. The laptop will not have scart. It is possible, but expensive, to get a vga-scart adaptor (about 60 from maplin) and you'll still need a separate sound lead.

How To Connect My Laptop To Tv?

I have a problem hooking up my tv to my laptop. The lap. Is recognizing my tv as a monitor but the tv is still blank. If i change the setting to external monitor i cant see my screen on either tv. We have a vga cable with blue green and red ports and the same on our tv. We have tried all other channels and still cant find anything. Right now i have it set up to show things on both monitors but again nothing on the tv. I got it to flicker on when i restarted but after that it went to blank screens for both and i had to disconnect to get my normal comp screen back. Is there a genius in the house?

How Do I Connect My Laptop To Tv?

Well i do now how, but my old rca tv doesn't have a vga port. (This tv is really big. ) But the rest of my tvs do. So i was thinking i could just buy a male to male vga cable (so i can use it on other tvs too) and buy an adapter that converts s-video (which my old tv has) to vga (which the tv doesn't have) to plug the mm vga cable to the adapter, and then to the tv. Where can i find the darn cable?!?!? . (The s-video to vga cable. ) Oh, and i don't plan to buy one of those converter boxes. I believe just making the cable is easier than buying a converter that requires a 9v power supply. Lastly, i think vga is way better quality than s-video. Which is why i also don't plan to buy a mm s-video cable. I talked to a guy at best buy and he said vga is like the 2nd or 3rd best quality you can get from a cable. Oh, and my tv nor my laptop have hdmi. And lastly lastly, i already have the audio cable!

What I Need To Connect Laptop To Tv?

I would like to set up my old 32'' sony television as a monitor for my hp laptop. Seeing as though my laptop does not have a s-video port, (yet my tv does), yet it does have a hdmi port, (yet my tv lacks this). So i was wondering, do i need to buy one of those $80 hdmi converters to s-video or can i go with this:

**Note** i believe it is a 5 hdmi port. To tell you just count the holes right? Lol?

Do i need to buy something else? Links? Preferably amazon because i trust them so much.

Is It Possible To Connect A Laptop To A Tower ?

Okay i want to connect my laptop to my computer tower. I have the monitor cord to do so, but i keep getting a black screen. I was wondering whether or not it is possible to hook a tower up to a laptop and have that information from the tower be displayed on the laptop (like making the laptop into a monitor, more or less, with the capabilities of using the laptop's keyboard and mouse). I know it's possible to hook my laptop up to my computer monitor, but is it possible to hook my laptop up to my tower and have it work?

Answer:- it has nothing to do with your audio visual card, if you want to watch tv on your laptop, you will need a tv tuner, and if you just want to connect your tv to your laptop, what you need is a usb 2. 0 to hdmi/dvi/vga 1080p display adapter.

Xbox Only Connect To Laptop When It Is On

My xbox will only connect to the laptop when my laptop is on. Basically, i need to use my xbox to play music from my pc, but in order to do this it has to connect to the pc, and it can only connect to the pc if the pc is on. Surely there's something wrong with that? If there is, could you tell me how i could fix it? Or perhaps i'm just being thick?

How To Connect Monitor To Laptop ?

How do i connect a monitor to laptop?

Answer:- follow the below steps:

1. Check whether your monitor has a dvi (digital) or vga (analog) port, both of which are generally built in.contact your vendor if your laptop does not have either. In this case, you can use a special adapter to connect the external monitor. These adapters are model specific and should be bought directly from the vendor. 2.connect one end of the dvi or vga cord to the dvi or vga port of your laptop and the other end to the monitor. Your laptop should automatically identify the external monitor as a new hardware device. 3. Most laptops will show the desktop on both screens by default, which is known as the mirror view. You can use function keys with common combination such as fn + f5, fn + f3, fn + f8 and fn + f9 to toggle between the two screens. Refer to the laptop's user manual for the right key combination to toggle between the displays. Alternatively, with many laptops you can also switch to the extended desktop mode. This means your desktop screen will be stretched across both the monitors. Refer to your user manual to switch to this mode.
