Yes, you can. However, you need to have a TV tuner installed in your desktop and media center software.

Trying to hook up this Philips monitor to an HP Pavilion Slimline tower. Monitor on but show only a TV mode, without reception. How do I get it to be a computer monitor instead of a TV?

You probably must change the 'input' or 'source' of the Philips monitor to match the port the HP PC is plugged on. If the monitor is also a TV, it must have a remote with this button, else check the built in buttons.

Gateway 610 Media Center

I would then suspect the monitor.
Sounds like the video card is working.
Try another monitor to see for sure.

I am trying to hook up my dell xps all in one to my sony tv. the tv has a rgb pc hook up but my computer dosent

Judging by the TV with a RGB hookup, I'm sure that it has S-video. So does that motherboard...
Hook it up using S -video (cheap at WalMart), then go to Display properties.
Choose Advanced, then the Intel Chipset.
Choose the TV as the Primary and your TV will become your monitor

Have toshiba satellite a130/a135 laptop screen red then goes blank

Try hooking up a external monitor. If you get video on the monitor and not the LCD, then your LCD may be in trouble.
If you don't get video on the external monitor, then your video card is gone.
