    I have a Toshiba 32 WLT66S LCD TV which has a socket which allows me to hook up my laptop to it.
    The trouble is its not displaying a picture from my laptop. I have the TV set on PC mode and the leads are in tightly.

    The funny thing is that the only time the TV shows a picture from my laptop is when I close down or put the laptop into hibernation, I then get the usual windows shutting down screen. Apart from that, I get nothing at all.

    I cant understand why the TV doesn't show my laptop desktop or anything for that matter but it does show when I am shutting down?

    Has anyone any ideas on what is going on or what I can do to get the TV to work with my laptop

    try changing the resolution on your laptop, and try FN F4

    Not knowning what OS or laptop you have, I can only guess.

    thanks limblee I forgot to say that I hooked the laptop up to a couple of old monitors and it work fine. So there is no problem with the laptop.

    I'm using 15way D connectors. What I cant understand is I get a picture on the Tosh from my laptop ONLY when I turn the laptop off or put it into hibernation !!( I get the normal shut down screen that also appears on the laptop)

    If I remember rightly the startup and shutdown/hibernate screens are in a lower than usual resolution (as the graphics card is startingup/shutting down)

    Please humour me and change the resolution on your laptop (try several) also try activating the dual screen mode (picture on laptop and tv at same time)

    Let us know how you get on.
