Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FE550G Notebook ?

Connect my laptop to tv with a sound

\015 Hi, I have a sony laptop vgn-fe550g series and i want to connect it to TV with sound.I have VGA, S-Vidieo and s400 port in my laptop. What kind of cable i would be needing in case to view pictures as well as sound. And what are the other configurations need to be made in my laptop.Your help is highly appreciated. thanks!\015

Answers :

Your computer may have come with cables to do just that. If not, you have options:

For video, I would check your TV inputs to see if it has a VGA port, since that would be the easiest. You can also get VGA to RCA or S-Video converters online as well if your TV does not have a VGA port. Almost all TV's these days have RCA inputs.

For audio, you can get a headphone jack (3.5mm) to RCA converter.

If you can't find the converters at your local electronics store, just google VGA to RCA and headphone to RCA.

Once you have the necessary cables connected to your TV, your computer will recognize that it has been connected to an external video source. I'm not sure, but I think it is either key combination Fn+F6 or F7 to perform a monitor switch. You can also right-click on the desktop and select properties (or personalize in vista). Then switch to the settings tab (or Display settings in vista) and click on the alternate display.
I assume you have a total of 3 connections going into the TV. One\015\012yellow, one white, and one red. You should be using a headphone to RCA\015\012adapter for your sound and have that plugged into your headphone jack\015\012on your laptop. After you have got this part correct, you should have\015\012sound coming out of your tv.
\015\012Have a yellow RCA plug going from your laptop into the TV. If you DO\015\012NOT have such a cord or are not sure what I am talking about then I\015\012would suggest that is the problem.
\015\012If you do have the yellow rca cord and still do not see a picture then\015\012I suggest either closing the laptop screen (this may force it to TV out\015\012mode) or find the button on your laptop that toggles between internal\015\012monitor, external monitor, and TV out. Then push that button. Now check\015\012for picture on your TV again.
