Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

Hooking a laptop to a lcd tv

\015 How do i hook up a lap top to a tv\015

Answers :

The Toshiba Satellite a105 has an S-Video output (small circular port on the left of the laptop). You can use this output if you have a n S-Video input on your TV. To get it to work you have to be in TV mode or some combination with TV. Hit Fn-F5 until TV is displayed. At this point you should be able to see some sort of video on your TV. Sometimes the TV won't be listed as available. The setting is flaky. A reboot will solve this. I've also got it to switch over after playing with multiple settings. Too difficult to describe.

If the image is rolling and black and white then you may need to switch from PAL to NTSC TV mode. Go to the video driver advanced tool (Intel in my case) via the Display Advanced Properties.

I hope this helps.
If your LCD TV has VGA input, then you can buy a cable that goes vga out of laptop to VGA in of TV... Also you can get an audio cable that goes from line out of your laptop to 2 rca jacks for your TV...
