Dear sir/madam,

Your laptop will have a VGA output or possibly a S-video out. For the\015\012VGA you'll need a standard VGA cable. Plug the cable in to your laptop\015\012and the PC input of your TV. If your TV does not have PC input it may\015\012have a DVI input. IF it does you can use a VGA/DVI adapter to plug it\015\012in. If it doesn't have a DVI input you can use the S-Video output on\015\012your laptop with a standard S-video cable. After the connection to your\015\012TV is made you will have to toggle alternate display by pressing and\015\012holding your [Fn] key and pressing F4, or F5, or another F# key. It's\015\012the one that looks like a TV screen. Press once to turn on output,\015\012press again to turn off your laptop screen, press again to go back to\015\012laptop screen only. If you want to put the audio on your TV you'll need\015\012a headphone to RCA jack converter (Radioshack). Plug the cord in to\015\012your headphone jack and the RCA jacks in to the same input you used for\015\012the video

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try pressing Fn + F? keys to cycle the to the different display options: LCD only, LCD + external monitor, external monitor only. The F? key is any of the function keys with a small monitor icon on it. Additionally, not all TVs have the same Screen Resolution capacity as your monitor. it may be necessary to lower the computer's display Screen Resolution, Screen Refresh Rate and color quality. This could all be done in the Display Properties (right click on a clear area of the desktop), click on Properties, click on Settings tab. The Screen Refresh Rate is at the Monitor tab of the Advanced Button.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
