Samsung TVs are designed with computer connection jacks so that you can hook up your computer to the television and use it as you would use a monitor. The option of connecting a computer to a Samsung TV is great for people who use movie download services. Televisions are often larger than computer monitors, and many people prefer watching programming on a television as opposed to a computer monitor.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Look at the back of your computer for either a "PC Out" or "DVI Out" jack. If you find a "PC Out" jack, you need to use a D-Sub cable. If you find a "DVI Out" jack, you need to use a HDMI-to-DVI cable.

  2. 2

    Plug one end of your connecting cable into the jack on the back of your computer. If you are using a D-Sub cable, you can plug either end of the cable into the computer. If you are using an HDMI-to-DVI cable, plug the larger end into your computer.

  3. 3

    Plug the other end of the cable into the appropriate jack on the back of your Samsung television. If you are using a D-Sub cable, plug the cable into the "PC In" jack. If you have an HDMI-to-DVI cable, plug it into the "DVI" or "HDMI (DVI) In" jack.

  4. 4

    Connect the audio cable to the "Audio Out" jack on the back of your computer. Connect the other end of the cable to the "PC/DVI Audio In," "Audio" or "DVI Audio In" jack (depending on your model) on the back of your Samsung television.
