Connect vga to laptop and tv, then connect audio lead to headphones (laptop)
and pc audio in (tv - usually two red & white phono plugs). I forgot about
the audio lead and spent 5mins trying to figure out why no sound was comming
from the telly! Look for hot keys on the laptop, my Amilo uses Fn & F10 to
switch between displays, also check the tv instructions for its max
resolution, mine works best set to 1024 by 768. Then it should just be
switch on laptop, select tv pc source and away you go. One problem you
might get (depending on your make of tv) is a flicker on the tv screen, I
got this, and found it was the refresh rate from the laptop was to high for
the tv, just set it lower (60) using the screen res settings on your laptop.
Hope you get it sorted.
