Most Vaio users experience success after updating their BIOS, which can reassign the pin structure to send the video signal.

Hi, and thank you for any help that you can provide. I bought the LN40A500 during the Thanksgiving sales because it was a great deal! I am happy with the quality of the TV and bargain. I am having a problem, however, with connecting my laptop to the TV. We had a Vizio prior to owning this one, and it was an easy plug and play. I connected the RGB to RGB cable from the laptop to TV, adjusted my laptop's display settings, and the TV would display my computer's output. With the LN40A500, I connect the same cable to the D-SUB input from my laptop's output, adjust my display settings, and the TV doesn't detect the computer. I tried refreshing the TV, but it says that there are no devices detected. I've tried a number of things and I really want to use my Samsung with my laptop but it just doesn't want to detect the computer. My laptop detects the TV because it lists my option to have a dual display as 'Monitor + Samsung". I assume that the D-SUB is only for DVI? Or the LN40A500 can only work with computers that have a DVI output? I hope not because my laptop doesn't have a DVI output and you can't change a laptop's video card. Please help!
