T400 Type 6474 to Samsung TV UN40H5003

2016-10-23, 23:23 PM

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out how I can connect the T400 to the TV. I already know I won't get the sound.

Is there an option to work without a signal converter? What is the best option?

 

The laptop only has VGA out.

 

The TV has the following inputs:

Component In,

Composite In,

HDMI

 

The Component and Composite are combined, as shown in this picture: http://content.abt.com/image.php/5-UN24H4000.jpg?image=/images/products/BDP_Images/5-UN24H4000.jpg&canvas=1&quality=100&min_w=450&min_h=320&ck=409

 

Thanks for any tips

Not that I know of.    Your laptops VGA signal cannot be fed directly to your TV's HDMI ports, which is precisely why they make the VGA to HDMI signal converters to make that possible.    

 

This converter linked below states that it will convert over both your laptops VGA picture, and audio via USB, to your HDMI input on the TV.
