I have been trying on and off for nearly a year now and have had no success in being able to connect my tv to my laptop so have come here hoping that someone might know something that will help. I have a Panasonic TX36PL30 tv and a Viglen Futura laptop, The laptop doesn't have s-video. I bought a 15 pin VGA to component cable and connected it in the only places available on the tv and laptop so know they are okay but all I get on my tv is my wallpaper and that is incredibly garbled. Sometimes the image that is my wallpaper shows up very fuzzy in pink and purple x3 across and x4 down on the tv screenscreen and sometimes it is a multiplied flickery mess It doesn't matter what is on my laptop screen, the wallpaper is the only thing that will show up on the tv screen. I have tried changing the screen resolution, the maximum colours, the DPI settings and the screen refresh rate but have had no luck. Has anyone any idea what I might be doing wrong or if there is anything else I could buy that won't cost the earth that might allow me to connect? I can connect the laptop to PowerPoint projectors etc at work without any problems at all but just not my tv Thanks in advance!
