    Hi.

    In specification I can read that this model can be connected to the TV so I bought on eBay Scart to 15Pin S-VGA RGB Male HD TV LCD cable lead [http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280653117637&ssPageNam e=STRK:MEWNX:IT] .

    When I plug the cable in (laptop is swiched off) then I'm not able to switch my Toshiba on.
    I tryied to plug in the cable with laptop runing but can't figure out how to set it up.

    Any suggestions?

    Thx.

    Hi MusicInMe,

    If you have connected the cable to your notebook and TV, press FN+F5 key combination as mentioned in your user manual to switch between monitors. You can choose between internal monitor, external monitor or both (clone display).

    But I would recommend choosing the correct TV input channel first before you press FN+F5 key combination that notebook can detect the external monitor properly.

    Usually the notebook should be also able to start if the cable is connected.

    Do you notice the same behavior using a normal VGA cable (not VGA to Scart)?

    At first I must say that this cheap cable has nothing to do with HD. In the past I saw many times that some cheap cables donít work at all so if you have some problems it can be definitely due to cable.

    Generally speaking it should work. When you connect your notebook to the TV enable right channel (video-in) and use FN+F8 key combination to switch between LCD and TV.

    Has your TV s-video port too?
