How to connect Studio 15 to HDMI tv ?

This question is not answered

Please forgive me if this has been addressed in another area.

I have a Studio 15 and would like to hook it to my Sony Bravia. Hooked straight hdmi / hdmi  , then held down fn and F8 key but it doesn't acknowledge the tv. No coaxel on the laptop and I can insert the 15 pin RBC / (VGA ? ) but no way to secure with the screws to laptop.

I'm totally frustrated with this. Can't seem to find the right info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So you've hooked the laptop up to the TV via a direct HDMI - HDMI connection/cable?

    Did you then set the output option in your graphics card settings, to TV/external source?


    To activate TV Out:

    Connect whatever cable you're using, then reboot your system.

    Once it's rebooted, open your graphics card's display options, and click on the video card's TV (/Output Device) tab.
    Click Settings --> Advanced --> TV (/Output Device), and choose 'Enable output to TV'.
    Different brands of video cards may have slightly different wording of course - i.e. 'Output Device/TV'.

    (Restore the display back to your computer monitor by following the above steps, except choose to send the signal to the computer monitor instead of the TV.)

    Also double-check the audio output, by right-clicking on the small speaker icon in the taskbar, and making sure it's set for external output (/HDMI)?

    From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!
