    Question Help - Linking Laptop to my TV

    My Toshiba TV has got a VGA input

    My Laptop has got a VGA output

    but when I plug them together with a monitor cable (which has all the pins in the plugs) - nothing comes up on the TV PC input screen

    does this mean the graphics card within the laptop isnt compatible with the TV?

    Is there anything I can do / buy to make them friends ??

    Many Thanks
    Ian

    using FN+F5 would toggle through the displays

    have a look on your laptops F keys (F1, F2...) for a monitor icon, press FN and tap that and you should get something on the screen.

    Also if you restart the laptop with the TV plugged in it should do it automatically

    thank you very much


    Fn + F12 (which has a monitor on) - worked a treat

    thanks again
