Are you seeking drivers that are missing or Apps to create these? I've always found it easiest to Google the specific driver or app I'm after then look in the forums or support areas to make sure there is no problem with the downloads!

How do yu connect a desktop tower to this tv


First, we need to look at how to make your PC send the correct signal. As a general rule, I can say that you will likely need some sort of adapter in your PC in order to send a signal to the TV. This is typically referred to as a "tuner card." It converts PC output to the input that a TV can understand. I don't normally recommend Wikipedia, but this article does tell you the basics of how to get signals from a TV to a PC:
TV tuner card Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
Then, it would be helpful to know what brand, model #, etc. "this" TV is.

I have an Acer aspire m3200. I tried to connect it to my hdtv, i got picture but no sound using the VGA cord, and got nothing using the HDMI cord. Please help


Hello,
Using a vga cable to connect your laptop to a hdtv is very easy but the cable does not transfer the audio signal, you need another cable aswell. You need a 3.5mm jack to jack cable, one end plugs into your headphone socket on your laptop and the other end plugs into the pc audio socket at the back of your tv (usually next to where you plug in the vga plug).

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

We've hooked up a desktop PC to our Philips 40pfl5505d/f7, and we can get video but not sound. we have a stereo mini cable from the speaker (green) slot in the comp. to the PC audio in/ out slots...


if you have the video cable connect via the vga to vga lead then if you look next to where the vga cable is connected on the tv there is a pc audio input socket, what you need is a 3.5mm stereo jack to a 3.5mmjack you have it on the right connection on the pc you just need to connect it to the right input on the tv which as i have said is next to the vga plug

I have a toshiba satelite L505D-S5965 laptop. i cannot find my manual and i would like to connect my laptop to my tv. how do i do this and what will i need?


that depends on your tv. your laptop only has a vga part, so your tv will either need to have a vga input, or you will have to get some sort of vga to dvi converter.

I have a dell GX280 and I tried to connect it to a Olevia LCD TV but I have a problem to do so. I connect it via VGA cable. When I started the PC I could see TV display Windows logon and show PC is...


Lower you screen resoloution to 800x600 to start with. Also you must setup mutimonitor, correctly.
Right, well, IF your TV has a DB15 Female Plug on it then you CAN, connect it up and it will work, as a second "Monitor". OR If the laptop, has a "Composite Video" a Yellow RCA socket, then you can, connect to the TV's Composite IN. & it will be a second monitor. Otherwise you cannot, the VGA signal is NOT compatible with a TV's input. SOME cards have a connector that plugs into the DB15 and to the TV, but they are "Special". In saying that though you can "Micky Mouse" things together and get an output, but it real poor quality, and disappointing results, there are various posts on the net about doing this if you wish.
Remember DRIVERS, you also need the drivers installed & setup correctly in order for the hardware to work. As a tip, When connecting to a TV, always connect like this......First, plug all cables into TV's correct Video input(s). Connect up the Sound, plug all cables into laptop, turn TV ON. NOW, start the laptop, you should now soon see the an image.
NOTE: Some laptops & other devices, have HDMI out, sometimes, the AUDIO is not passed through, the HDMI cable, & the Audio must be run from Audio/Line OUT on laptop to AV IN on TV.Also some laptops have a socket that a multi-way 4/5/6/7 pins. A connector plugs into this, you then can connect to these connections, as you would normally.

Hook up for dell inspiron 6000 to panasonic th-50px80u


the TV supports resolutions as follows:-

VGA (640 × 480 pixels), WVGA (852 × 480 pixels),
XGA (1,024 × 768 pixels), WXGA (1,366 × 768 pixels)

You need to set the PC desktop res to one of these resolutions and then simply connect the VGA o/p on the laptop to the PC input on the TV. You can also connect the audio out of the PC to the TV if you wish by connecting the audio into AV2 audio input on the TV

The other option would be to use the S video o/p on the PC and connect into AV3 input (audio inc) but I suspect the picture quality will be better via the VGA

Please post back if you have other questions or problems.

Please tell me how to connect HP Compaq 6820S to TV. Notebook has only VGA, TV has S video


Hello Pabi24,
You can use a VGA to S-Video converter/adapter such as can be found here: http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=vga+to+s+video&category0=
This will work as long as your laptop's video out/VGA port is working, but won't get your audio to the TV (audio will still emit from your laptop).
Good luck.
