The video graphics array (VGA) cord on the back panel of an LG television is a video input connection point typically used to hook up a computer to the TV set. This connection enables the user to view content from a PC or laptop on the bigger LG screen. Because VGA is a common video output port on computers and laptops, the cable from the LG TV offers a quick and simple way to hook up the components in about a minute.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn off the LG TV and the computer.

  2. 2

    Connect the VGA cord from the VGA input jack on the rear of the LG TV to the matching port on the back of the computer tower.

  3. 3

    Twist the thumbscrews on the sides of each plug clockwise to lock the VGA cord to the components.

  4. 4

    Turn on the PC and the LG TV. A desktop computer should immediately output a video signal to the TV.

  5. 5

    Press the "Fn" key on a laptop computer along with one of the numbered F keys along the top row. The F key varies with the laptop model but should be printed either with a screen icon or the label "LCD/CRT." Pressing the keys together switches the video from the laptop screen to the LG TV.
