This quote is from lg ld450 forum...


If you have a PC or laptop near the tv you can just plug in via VGA, and set the resolution from the display settings in windows...(right click desktop - properties - settings)

You might need to enable "tv-out" if its a laptop (usually a function key near f2,f2,f3 etc) to get the laptop to output to the tv and not the laptop screen.



hopefully this will help.

yeah have a look on the tv for the port and on the laptop.or check both manuals.
the cable you will have to purchase i would guess
if you dont have the manuals try going to the manufacturers website for them.

Why not use HDMI out if your TV supports it?
