Upgraded laptop monitor to 42inch Plasma!!
Finally i managed to link my Sony Vaio laptop with my 42inch Samsung Plasma screen.
It was a long journey through electronic shops and internet to find out what the best way was to connect my laptop with the tv.
There are 3 ways;
By using s-video cable
By using VGA cable
Or by using HDMI cable
So first i checked all my options on my laptop and tv and then went a for VGA connection as my laptop is not yet equiped with HDMI port.
Finally found a cable and plugged it in,but no actoion!
The icon for pc was not highlighted on my tv,so he didnt recognize any equipment as source.
Changed resolution etc,but stil no result.
Final ption,check google!
Found out that i was sharing this problem with thousands of people,so i search through blogs for a answer.More than 10 possible solutions i found and all didnt work!
Then i pulled out the plug and looked in the cable if i could find something out,and yes, i saw that my cable was equiped with 3 pins less.
So following day went to the electronic shop again and asked for a High Quality VGA cable.
Luckely the sales man came ,with a famous cabling brand (MONSTER-Cables) .
It was was offcourse 6 x more expensive as my previous non-working cable,but it thought,if this one isnt working,than nothing is workig!
Back home hooked it up and Voila!
The tv automaticly switched to pc mode and resized the screen,and there we go, a fully sharp 42inch computer screem is born!!
I finally can take the maximum out of my tv set ,internetting and watching downloaded movies is way more fun now!!!
