You don't have to activate them, you just plug leads in and connect the other end in to the correct device.

From the looks of the TV manual you have everything right, so it's very odd you're running into this problem.

Have you tried swapping through the sources? I find with one of the TVs we have on display at work that any time I'm having some troubles with it I will change the source from PC to something else, then back to PC.

If that doesn't work then I'd suggest you try reseting the sound settings back to factory default. The instructions are on page 45 of the TV manual. From the TV menu select "Sound", then "Sound Reset", then either "Reset All" or "Reset Sound Mode". I would suggest reseting all.

Last option would be to try using the headphone jack in the side of the TV, though this is a last resort kind of thing since you would have to unplug it every time you wanted to use the cable box.

Hope this helps :)

You cannot use the VGA port, AND a graphics card. It is either use the graphics card, or use the Integrated Graphics of the computer.

(The VGA port on the motherboard is Integrated Graphics)

Three monitors?
Use two off of the graphics card.

Advise Do Not use a splitter, to run two monitors off of the DVI or VGA port of a Radeon 9250. You'll get low quality graphics. (In case you're thinking of running one monitor off of one port, and two monitors off of the other port)

If you want to run three monitors, I advise getting a computer, (Motherboard), that has two PCI Express x16 slots.
Depending on the graphics cards used, Nvidia or ATI, you will be using SLI, or CrossFire.

Going back to using dual monitors.
Do you know how to set up your Display Properties to use dual monitors?
If not, hit me up in a Comment.

How do I get P2210 monitor to work with USB with Dell Inspiron 15R that doesn't have a VGA port


The Inspiron 15R should have an HDMI port. You should be able to connect the HDMI to the DVI-D port on the P2210 with a cable like this: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=102&cp_id=10231&cs_id=1023104&p_id=2661&seq=1&format=2 . Alternatively, you can get an HDMI to Display Port adapter. Connect either cable with the notebook and monitor both off. Then turn on the monitor before turning on the computer. Pressing F1 should send the signal to the monitor. However, if you right click on the desktop (anywhere there isn't a program or icon), you should see some links for DIsplay options. You can use those to select the monitor resolution and whether to use both screens (extended or mirrored) or one at a time.

The most expensive option would be a USB to video adapter, see http://www.startech.com/AV/USB-Video-Adapters/ , or docking station. These come with VGA or other video output ports depending on the model. The USB ports on the monitor are just an integrated hub to plug in an external devices. It doesn't communicate to the display.

I hope this helps.

(The DVI to HDMI cable doesn't supply audio but that doesn't matter in this case. However, you may need to go into the Manage Audio devices control panel and disable sound on the HDMI port. Open the Control Panel (Windows + X in Windows 8 or from the Start Menu with Windows 7). Go to Hardware and Sound and then look for Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the playback tab, adjust the default audio device by right-clicking on the appropriate device. Then click Apply.)

How torun a flat panel hd lcd tv on a dell 531s


Please check the input ports on the LCD TV and the output ports on the computer's video card. You need to have a proper cable (VGA, HDMI or DVI) to connect your computer with your LCD TV. Later you need to select your TV's input mode.

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

How do I connect my laptop to tv to use as monitor


It depends on the laptop and the TV. If both have a VGA port, then use a VGA cable between them. Make sure the VGA port is enabled on the computer (possibly in the BIOS) and then set the monitor properties. You may need to reboot the computer to get the TV on.

If the TV has HDMI input and the laptop also has an HDMI port then you need to check the TV specs. Some HDMI ports can accept a signal from a computer (often labeled HDMI/DVI) and others don't. If the HDMI port is compatible with a computer source, then use an HDMI cable between the two. Again make sure the port is active. If TV's HDMI port is not compatible with the computer, you will need a converter.

If the TV doesn't have a VGA port (and the laptop doesn't have any video port other than VGA), then you will need a VGA to component video converter (or VGA to composite video) depending on the inputs of the TV. See http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for some converters.

Note: the converters are needed since computers output in a different format than the TV input understands. For analog, the computer is RGB and the component video is YPbPr.

A few media PCs might have a TV out port. This would eliminate the need for a converter. Check the specs for the cable you need.

I hope this helps.

Connect Dell Mini with HDMI to VGA PC flat monitor


hi,
you would need an HDMI to VGA adapter. sometimes it would come in a form of a separate cable or just a regular adapter which would convert the HDMI end to VGA (the blue one that has 15 pins)
you can purchase these cables from your local computer store.
hope this helps

Connecting dell mini inspiron with LCD with HDMI cable on both si


You just need a HDMI cable to go from the laptop to the TV. It is refered to as a patch cable. You then go into the TV menu and set it to component or in some cases it will say computer. The VGA on the TV just allows both style interfaces to be connected.

Dell Inspiron 2200 to Phillips 47 " TV


check this out http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/762913.html *A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable. you will need a seperate audio cable unless you are going to use your laptop's speakers
