Hello,

You need to make sure that your PC is capable of displaying video output other than a monitor. It sounds like your TV or PC isnt capable of doing this. You will need to check the manual for your PC and/or your video card to see if they both allow this feature.

If you can reply with the model numbers of your equipment, Ill try to assist you further.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

I can get picture with hdmi connected but no sound. Do i have to connect the optical digital audio cable from PC to TV to get sound? Actually the video and sound go to stereo receiver first, video passes...


If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.

Hooking up HD computer with HD TV


ye sounds like your pixles settings may be to high you said you had 2 dvi connections on your video card to clarify do you have another monitor on the other connection or do you just have one dvi hooked up on your Video card you can try and fix the resolution by booting up into safe mode to do that just restart your computer and simotanously pres the F8 Key until a menue comes up and select safe mode then try changing it to a lower setting that u know will work like 800x600 and then from there check you refresh rate also make sure it's around 60 hz and apply and reset and then you can change your settings a little higher from there to check the refresh rate just go to your display properties then click the advanced tab and go to monitor and select it there

HOW DO YOU HOOK UP TV TUNER ON THE COMPUTER TO


your video card (not tv tuner) has to connect to your tv. you would then use your tv as your computer monitor. If you dont have all the proper connections to connect your video card in your pc to your tv, then you may have to use a different video card. It just depends on what tv and video card you have

Go back to square 1. Unhook the wires from the switch box. Get the 300 ohm screws and hook up the wires the normal way. Try changing the sound card.

Connected pc to logik 32in lcd tv, getting picture but no sound


Need clarification. Do you have speakers hooked up to your computer? Or did you just plug in a VGA cable from your computer to the TV? The sound can't magically go from your computer to the TV, because VGA cables don't transmit sound. So if you are indeed using speakers, which I doubt, it's a computer problem.
Basically, describe exactly what components you have and how they are hooked up.

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 :)
