“Just connecting the cable from the rear of laptop to the socket on the rear of the TV then find

the source on the TV configuration”

Once you have connected the VGA cable to the TV you now have to set up the laptop to access the external display

Using the “FN” key (Function) and the “CRT/LCD” key look at the top of keyboard “F” keys

Hold down the FN key and press the CRT/LCD key once

Display will change as follows: -

Press once laptop display only

Press again external display only

Press again both laptop and external display

You must hold down the FN key each time you press the CRT/LCD key

You have to set the laptop to show both laptop and external displays, if set to external

display only, the display will default back to the laptop display every time you power on

or reboot the laptop

Depending in the size of the TV you will have to adjust the screen resolution for the

display to fit the screen

Right click on the desktop-properties-setting and change the screen resolution to the

correct size
