    Hello pickee,

    I need a bit more information to help out here. What is the model of your computer, and is it a desktop or laptop? Do you only have a single VGA connector on your computer, or do you have more than one?

    As a second note, I found this note with a tiny bit of online searching:

    "There is also a VGA input for computers
    that is only compatible with 640x480 data at 60 Hertz.", fromhttp://www.laaudiofile.com/ws65908.html

    If you try setting your display to that, it may work. Let me know if you need assistance in doing that. Sadly, if it is only compatible with that resolution, I can't imagine it looking very good on your tv anyway.

Hello trying to connect dell lattitude d600 to TV not getting active screen


Make sure the external port you are trying to hook up to (I am assuming it's the vga port (blue one)) is hooked up and that you have selected the pc or vga input on the tv. Then go into display properties and select to enable that monitor on you dekstop (you can extend it or mirror it you will see options) There is also a hotkey combination that does this (FN + F8)

How do I hook up a flat panel tv w/hdmi to a dell d630 laptop. I tried vga cable from laptop to hdmi input in tv .no sgnal


You are going to suffer from quality issues because vga is the best connection for video out the D630 has. You should be able to hook the vga up directly. this gives around 480p i think. If you don't have that input, then look for vga converter boxes.Don't forget to change the display in graphics properties so that the video actually gets sent out.

How do I hook my tv up to my acer netbook? I dont have a tv port but do have a port for a second moniter and have the cord to hook it up but it will not work...


If the TV doesn't have a VGA input, you have two options. If the TV has component video inputs (3 RCA jacks color-coded red, green and blue, not just a single video jack coded yellow), you can use a simple adapter cable. Here is an example.

If your TV only has a single yellow video input jack (called composite video) you can't use the simple cable. But you can get a VGA to video converter. This device takes the VGA signals and converts them to the form the TV can use.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Cant use TV as Computer display


If you can disable the blue screen via the tv menu you might see something happening behind that blue ,you might be able to figure it out from there, also try to connect as directly as possible (tv/computer) even if you have to physically move one or the other, that way you can eliminate possible problems. good luck

Proscan 32'' VGA port; TV says not supported on VGA input


Sounds like your resolution on your computer is set too high for your tv to accept. Try putting your computer resolution down to 1024x768 or lower and see if that works.

Trying to hook compaq presario laptop to philips lcd digital tv


hey fox,
sounds to me like a connection problem. If the compaqs output is vga, you need to convert the input (tv side ) to hdmi, component, s-vidio... what ever you can find. Typically when you hook up your computer to a flat screen or such, its best to try to use the hdmi ports or the rpg. But if thats not available you need to take the outout from your laptop ( whatever type that might be and input it into your flat screen tv. If you input laptop into tv under ( eg..HDMI) then when you VIEW it you need to select the correct source on your flat screen. Such as hdmi or pcmi or rpg.I know that the do sell alot of cables that adapt from one type of connection to another. Typically only one cable is required from the laptop to the flat screen. If you think about it you are only using the flat screen as a monitor.

How to hook this monitor onto my computer


You would have got a CD with this moniter..
we ahve install that cd..
and its better to check the cables first which would be the
VGA CORD that is blue in colour which connects your moniter with the tower.
We can check the connections with the moniter for the Tower and then install the cd.
