    I have a laptop with movies that I would like to watch on my television. My TV is a Sony Bravia KDL-46S2000. It has a VGA slot in the back of the TV and the TV's maximum resolution is 1080i.

    After I connect the VGA cable from the laptop to the television, what do I do? I dont see anything.

    -Thanks in advance
    -Sam

    on the laptop you need to send the signal to the VGA port
    to do that usually on laptops you need to press the FN key and then F4 {but the F key may be different - look for a figure like a TV}
    each time you press it it will toggle between three setting {not necessarily in this order}
    1) Laptop screen only
    2) laptop and VGA Port
    3) VGA port only

    you will also need to link the sound - so a jack plug 2.5mm or 3.5mm depends on what your headphone socket on laptop is - to what ever audio inputs you have TV - probably Phono RCA - coloured red and white for left and right channel

    The TV has the green sound thing that the computer has so sound isnt a problem. What I did is enable the secondary display but how can I make the secondary display the primary?
