You have not mention the model of lg 32"   what i suggest is lower the resolution of your hp pc tp 800 by 600  and gradualy increase the res to get the picture which matches the plasma hope this will solve your problem

HOW CAN I INSTALL A NVIDIA GEFORCE 7200GS ON A HP 500B DESKTOP PC. IT IS CONFLICTING WITH THE ON BOARD VGA, THIS IS PREVENTING ME FROM USING THE GEFORCE AS A SECONDARY DISPLAY WHICH THE REASON I BOUGHT IT


Hello,

It appears that you have spent real time and money to upgrade your system.

I understand your problem. You want dual output VGA's to have two monitors setup with your system. The computer, HP500 has an onboard VGA out, and your add-on PCI express will not give you a second out VGA.

More than likely, HP / Compaq might not support this configuration with thier CMOS>

Maybe better soloution would be since you already have a VGA and DVI video outputs from your new PCI express board would be to go into BOIS and disable your onboard VGA. The VGA should then revert to the new PCI express board. You then could connect the second monitor to have both on the PCI express board. If you have only VGA (blue type) connectors, you can get a DVI to VGA adapter.

At Newegg online or Tiger Direct should have them if needed for less than &10, plus S&H.

Good Luck

How to use rca entertainment series 32 inch as pc monitor


Assuming that your RCA 32 inch tv has an HDMI or VGA input, all you need is the proper cable to connect the two units. If your computer has a VGA out (blue female connector) and so does your TV, you would need a male to male VGA cable. If your computer has a DVI out (white connector), you would need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable. The combinations can me played around with depending on what connectors are on the back of the TV and what you have as an output for your PC.

I connect my sanyo 42 inch LCD tv via s-video, no signal on TV


Be sure you changed the source on the tv (i'm guessing you did this), be sure you switch the out-put on your computer to s-video. You can do this in the properties box. If you are running the nvidia video utility, you can set up hot keys to do this. I set up ALT, Z, 3 as my hot key combination. All I do is hook up to my tv, press the three buttons above, at the same time, and the video moves from my pc monitor to the tv.

Pc connect to plasma tv pioneer pdp hd5070


Depending on your graphics card you may want to try a digital lead hdmi/dvi.

Also remember you will have to change settings for your graphics card.

If it will do dual view or clone desktop then select it but set your resolution to 800x600 just to start.
If you go too high the tv or computer may not display or say out of range

vga to tc vga has been known to be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of results but for the most part they are good esp if you use a good quality cable and not one of the many cheap ones that are about..

GeForce 7200 GS 256MB won't work with tv


"the tv works and I can see my extended desktop, but ONLY in 800x600!!! Also when I tried to watch a movie on the tv, it only showed a black block"

1. Tv's only support max of 800x600 (technically less)

2. Windows has a built in ANTI theft BS protection that makes viewing video through an alternate output show up black boxed.

CONNECTIING COMPAQ LAPTOP TO MY NEW 42"LG LCD TV


If the cable from the laptop is connected to the TV, you've selected the VGA input and see no signal, you probably haven't enabled the laptop's VGA output connector. Somewhere on the keyboard will be a function key with a little monitor screen on it. Hold down the F or Fn key and press the monitor key and it will switch on the external monitor connector. On some monitors, the first press shuts off the laptop screen when it turns on the external connector. If yours does that, press the key a second time to turn the laptop screen back on.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS PCIE - Multi-Display does not work


This card does not allow you to Multi-Display with the VGA port and the S-video port. If you put a DVI to VGA port adaptor (not supplied) on the DVI port, you can Mulit-Display two VGA monitors and (presumably) a VGA (from the DVI port) and S-video monitor.

This is not explained anywhere and the card does not come with a DVI to VGA port adaptor, so I wa only able to work this out after I bought the DVI to VGA port adaptor.
