Hello Handsome Rob,

I have experienced this too. I believe the problem is your screen resolution setting. Drop the laptop to the the 640 x 480 resolution and reboot. Make sure you have the correct input selected on the TV and you should be set. Please let me know how it works out for you.

This is most likely the cable you have connected. I would try that first. If that doesn't work try connection your laptop to another TV. If the new TV gives you the same problem it might be a problem with your graphics card.

Here what is happen my sister law had a Belkin router that went bad she got a norther Belkin router not the same one but it a Belkin here what going on she try to hook it up and she Chang to use broadband...


The ISP modem connects to the wireless routers main port. Then connect the PC to any other port on the router.


Use the default wireless settings that Belkin provides. There is a small tag under the unit with the default information. Or, use custom settings in the web admin.

Not to computer saavy so please keep it simple. I have a Sony Vaio VGC RA840G desktop with 5.1 surround sound. Also have a Samsung LN46A850 S1F HDTV. Also a home theater system. This is hooked up to cable...


From the looks of the TV manual you have everything right, so it's very odd you're running into this problem.

Have you tried swapping through the sources? I find with one of the TVs we have on display at work that any time I'm having some troubles with it I will change the source from PC to something else, then back to PC.

If that doesn't work then I'd suggest you try reseting the sound settings back to factory default. The instructions are on page 45 of the TV manual. From the TV menu select "Sound", then "Sound Reset", then either "Reset All" or "Reset Sound Mode". I would suggest reseting all.

Last option would be to try using the headphone jack in the side of the TV, though this is a last resort kind of thing since you would have to unplug it every time you wanted to use the cable box.

Hope this helps :)

I have a us robotics wireless model 9108 router. I have just bought a dell inspiron laptop with vista home premium and am unable to connect to the internet. can you help?


ushally you will have to set up your connection being connected to the router via the lan cable once you do that you can configure your laptop to be allowed to run on the wireless setting.

so if you have another computer hooked upto it you can set the permissions on that you have to create a new network for the laptop.

if you have the manual you can find the configuration settings for your router, most you just open up Internet explorer and then type in home to access this menu.

but for your unit im not 100% sure of the configure setup for it.

I've bought a USB 3RCA data cable to project video from my Laptop to me TV/projector. However it doesn't work, and no signal appears to be received by either TV or Projectors... USB 3RCA Cable from PC...


i hope that is a USB driver issue when u plug your device does your computer detect any usb device and then its says unknown/unrecoginzed device. You have to check the cables first then you download USB2.0 driver install it inyour computer andl aslo try to connect the device in another port also put the the driver cd for the TV/projector
