Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

Connecting my laptop to my new TV

\015 I have a Compaq Presario CQ50 with a VGA output. My new HDTV has HDMI inputs in the back so what cables do I need to purchase in order to show the computer screen on the TV? I have a VGA to DVI cable and a DVI to HDMI cable but was told that there are different types of DVI cables and I don't know which I need. Both of the DVI connectors I currently have look different. Please help!\015

To convert VGA format to HDMI format you need a piece of hardware, check this WEB site.

Hi there.
Check on the back of the TV for a VGA input port, if it has what you will need is a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo to mini stereo audio lead to plug into the headphone port on the laptop to audio in on the TV.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
