It may be becouse of the change in signal format, as other channels use diffrent types of resolutions and quality. My tv does the same thing..

Have a toshiba a10 and a vizio hdtv, what cable do I need to connect the two


Hi.

You don't say what you intend to do once the 2 devices are connected. I am going to assume that you just want to use the vizio hdtv as a large external monitor.

The laptop's vga (15-pin blue or black D-shaped) port can connect direct to the hdtv via it's blue vga (15-pin blue D-shaped) port.

However, your toshiba a10 laptop is relatively old, discoontinued technology with (in original specification) low RAM (256mb ddr), a single, slow processor (2.2ghz celeron) and slow (4300rpm), small hard drive (30gb), with limited, low level vga graphics capability, running xp home edition operating system. VGA is a slow analogue video technology.

To get the full benefit of the hdtv, which is almost state-of-the-art, you need a laptop with a fast dual or quad core processor, 3-4gb ddr3 RAM, 320-500gb 5400-7200rpm or solid state HDD, running the latest windows 7 operating system. Such a laptop would have hdmi ports and powerful, fast, state-of-the-art graphics capability.

A new laptop would unlock the full spectrum of , high definition video, high speed audio-visual streaming, fast video-editing, multimedia functionality between the two devices.

For your current laptop you need a male-to-male 15-pin, D-Sub VGA cable.

For the recommended or a similar, modern laptop you would need an HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.

Internet fails every day and i have to unplug modem wait afew minutes and internet comes back


Try changing your wireless channel.
Home wireless networks based on the 802.11b or 802.11g standards transmit their signal in a narrow radio frequency range of 2.4 GHz. Various other electronic devices in a home, such as cordless phones, garage door openers, baby monitors, and microwave ovens, may use this same frequency range. Any such device can interfere with a Wi-FI home network, slowing down its performance and potentially breaking network connections.
The 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi signal range is divided into a number of smaller bands or "channels," similar to television channels.Many wireless products ship with a default Wi-Fi channel of 6. If encountering interference from other devices within the home, consider changing the channel up or down to avoid it. Some Wi-Fi channel numbers overlap with each other. Channel 1 uses the lowest frequency band and each subsequent channel increases the frequency slightly. Therefore, the further apart two channel numbers are, the less the degree of overlap and likelihood of interference.
If this won't work, Then consider buying a new wireless router as your current is deemed broken.
