VGA port problems G51-35 80M8

I have a Lenovo G51-35 80M8 and I have been trying to connect my pc to a monitor/tv via VGA, the tv is old and does not have HDMI and I dont want to buy a converter. I have looked up how to activate the VGA port but nothing works, does anyone have any idea on what I need to do?

Hi cxaiverb ,


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


You do have available VGA port to allow connection with a known good working VGA to VGA cable.

Going to the BIOS (FN + F2 or pressing the Novo key while off) would show under configuration tab the graphic device enabled ( pressing FN + F9 would load defaults FN + F10 to save and exit.


See if the cable is working of with another VGA monitor if available to isolate if the issue is the TV port , laptop port or the cable. Win + P allow toggle between screens and should show display.


Reconnecting cable should atleast show from no signal to display when done.


Update us how it goes.
