Hooking up your laptop to your T.V

Post by blahzing on Wed May 19, 2010 3:15 am

I've been trying and trying to play movies from my laptop on my LCD tv, but it just doesnt work. i've read countless suggestions from all over the internet, but i havent got any direct advice. i use Gom player to play all my movies, and i'm trying to hook up my laptop to my living room tv so that the whole family can enjoy together, but all when i go to display settings and connect the displays, the only working part is a small middle part of the tv screen. Full screen on the tv is just a big square that isn't even full size. ALSO, when i play a avi file, the Gom players' screen is just black! it's playing alright, but its just black.
I have a sony Vaio, and am trying to hook it up to a Sony LCD T.v using a VGA Cable. the tv is about 46 inches? please help! i don't know if i messed up the display properties because someone suggested changing the graphic card properties of something..

Try using VLC video player and see if the output is correct.
