Question about Televison & Video
I have connected my Laptop to the Akai 32LW7 via VGA. I can see the log on windows on the TV screen and once the computer logs on, the TV screen goes blank with " No Signal" sign. How to connect ?
I know this is an old thread, but I had a similar issue with a Protron PLTV-3250. I kept getting 'invalid mode' when trying to use it in a dual screen configuration on my PC. I found that this particular TV has an odd max resolution of 1368x769, but by default Windows was setting at the standard resolution of 1366x768, causing the 'invalid mode' message. Despite having defaulted to the wrong resolution for the TV, Windows still seemed to recognize the TV's native resolution and did have that option available in the display settings. So after setting the resolution up a notch to 1368x769, what do ya know, it works! This ****** is bright though! Way brighter than the 21 inch lcd sitting next to it.

I believe that you have connected it correctly since the Windows log-on is displayed. It may be that the Screen Resolution of your desktop is a bit high and therefore would have to be lowered to match the capacity of the Akai 32LW7. Pls try 1366 x 768 pixels or lower. You could also lower the laptop's screen refresh rate. Additionally, some laptops have to be toggled to activate external VGA by pressing Fn + F? keys to cycle through LCD, LCD + external, External only. The F? key would be the one with the monitor icon.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
