Solved Can't connect laptop to tv

Post by emzie on 31st December 2009, 10:11 am

I have broken the screen on my laptop so i bought a monitor cable and hooked it up to my tv. When i turn it on the windows xp booting up screen appears on the tv but when it goes to the xp welcome screen my tv goes blank and a message say there is no signal?? All i want to do is get my files from my old laptop and transfer them to the new one! Does anyone know of the best way of going about doing this??

Hello,

use the function keys on your laptop to switch the screen. For most laptop brands it's FN+F3 or FN+F11.
