What does the HDMI jack surrounded in orange on the gateway dx4720-01h do?


This is the HDMI interface on the Motherboard. You should be able to easily connect an HDMI cable between this jack on the PC and a display that offers and HDMI input to see and hear the content on the TV.

You *may* need to either remove the video expansion card (not likely) or select the On Board HDMI video and audio in the PC's setup or BIOS pages. Failing to switch the audio from analog to the digital HDMI output will have the audio play through your current speakers instead of the TV.

Linked below are spec on your machine, in it it says:

HDMI

I cant run my gateway GT5676 pc in normal mode with Samsung TV / Monitor


If I'm understand you correctly you said you have the HDMI Cable and the VGA Cable comming from the Computer to the TV. You should only have one cable. Either use the HDMI from the computer to the HDMI to the TV or use the VGA from the Computer to the VGA on the TV. Once you have the cable connect select your input on the TV. If you have the VGA Cable connected your input to select on the tv will probably be PC or Computer. If you use the HDMI Cable your input to select on the TV will be HDMI.

One you connect the cables and select the input try rebooting the computer and the video might show up automatically on the tv. If not you will have to hit the FN (Function key) + the correct (F1 thru F12) key that corresponds to the external display. The correct key will probably have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The display will toggle on 3 setups (Computer only, TV only, both the TV and Computer).

Now as for not being able to boot up normally that's another issue.

HDMI is digital and uncompressed signal while the above mentioned interfaces are analog. A digital source is translated into less precise analog signal in an analog interface. After that signal is sent to the television and then converted back into digital signal to display on screen. Due to this, some distortion of picture quality is caused at each translation. HDMI removes the analog conversion and preserves original signal and delivers richest, sharpest picture. Separate audio signals are required by other video interfaces. Due to large amount of bandwidth available in HDMI, it not only transmits video but audio channels up to eight digital audio channels can also be transmitted through HDMI. The entire process becomes simple because a number of wires are replaced by a single wire. It also delivers much better performance.
The HDMI “Type B” have 29 wires while standard HDMI or “Type A” has 19 wires. Motion picture industry and other professional applications use “Type B” HDMI wires. HDMI enabled components talk to each other via an interface that is why it is also called Intelligent HDMI. All-in-one functionality of remote and other interoperable features are provided by HDMI but not by other technologies.
High-Definition and enhanced video and other standard formats are supported by HDMI. Backward compatibility with DVI (Digital Video Interface) is also supported. DVI/HDMI cable can be used to connect HDMI interface in high-end graphic cards that have DVI port. DVI/HDMI cable has HDMI connector at one end and DVI connector at the other. Another point to note is that degradation of signal can occur if the length of the HDMI cable exceeds 5 meters (15 feet).
At least one HDMI interface was provided in many high-end televisions since 2005. Two HDMI interfaces provides more flexibility and three might be better in cases where one wants to connect a game console. As the TV industry installs HDMI interfaces into more peripheral components, multiple interfaces will become common on TVs.

It is good to have it.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

You need to set your system to output to the port the TV is on.
If it is a laptop, there is an F key to change from LCD to LCD+VIDEO to VIDEO.
If it is a desktop you need to go into your display settings (control panel or rt clk desktop/properties or whatever system you have).

How to hook my sony VAIO to TV via HDMI


Hi there Dream,

There is a toggle function for switching the display. It cycles from normal to external to both.

You are looking for one of the F-Keys (Normally F5) should have a little rectangle between two vertical lines. It's supposed to be a monitor.

To cycle the display, press the Fn key (near the space bar), then the F-key. Your standard display should go blank. To get it back, do the same thing.

If your TV still displays nothing, Check which input its using.

This should get you going.

My visonteck 1300 graphics card box states that it can be interfaced with my hdtv via dvi cord, where do i find a cord for it? what is it DVI to USB or DVI to PCmoniter cord?


Depending on the connections on your HDTV you'll have a few different options.

DVI on HDTV - Using a simple DVI to DVI cable will work. (DVI is the larger port on your video card - generally white in color)

VGA on HDTV - Use a standard VGA monitor cable to connect them. (VGA is the Blue 15pin connector on the video card)

HDMI on HDTV - This is the case for most new HDTVs - You'll need a DVI to HDMI cable - your local electronic store will have these in the tv section.

If all else fails you can use s-video (the circular connector) this is much lower quality though.
