Any settings for resolution are fine but ideal setting are 1024x768 or 1024x800. To change the resolution just right-click on your desktop background>properties>settings and then use the slider under screen resolution to whatever you want and click on apply then ok

Hope This Helps

Playing a downloaded film with HDMI cable to my TV set Sony Bravia, after 10 minutes the colour on tv set disappear or change. Do I need a certain drive on my computer for HDMI


If it was playing the video fine initially, there should be no reason for that to change. Most likely the video card on the laptop is overheating or dying, which results in the change in colors. I fix laptops at my computer repair shop, and most are HP Pavilion DV6000 and DV9000, and they are notorious for having bad video chips on the motherboards. If it is still under warranty I would back up your data from the hard drive then send it in to HP to have fixed or replaced. If it isn't under warranty I would try to connect your tv using just a VGA cable, and see if the same thing happens. If it does, you have a bad video card. If it doesn't happen then you may still have a bad video card, it's just that the VGA signal isn't as high powered/high resolution so your card doesn't get pushed hard enough to malfunction. Try the VGA cable and let me know how it works.

Problem with tv and computer. No sound.


If you plug in headphones to the Laptop can you hear anything? If not check laptop settings
If you plug an ipod (or similar) into the TV using the same lead can you hear anything? What about with a different lead?

The method is to take "known good" parts and swap them into the system to find the failure point by replacing each part in turn until you confirm it is "known good" or faulty.

I suspect the lead but follow the procedure above.

I would like to connect my HP Pavillion dv9000 to my Sony Bravia HDTV... I do not have an HDMI port on my computer. What is the best way to connect them?


I dont believe your laptop has an S-Video port. You should be able to use a Monitor Cable. There should be a PC input on your TV that you can plug into.

Tried hooking the computer to an external monitor. Got the welcome screen ok, then it lost sync and went black. Tried it on another plasma; same result. SVGA cable connection.


Hi there. When you connect an external display, your laptop clones your desktop to the external display, including resolution settings. First you need to check what resolution settings the plasma can display. If your laptop is set to a resolution that the external monitor can't display, then you will lose the display once the resolution settings are loaded. You can change the laptop resolution in your Display Settings.

If you don't know what settings the external monitor can display, just open your Display Settings and set your laptop resolution to 1024x768. Almost all new monitor/tv's can display it. Connect your external display, and see what happens. If it works, but the resolution doesn't look right, then just move the resolution along one more, until you find one you're comfortable with.

N.B. Some monitors/tv's "jump" resolutions. i.e. the monitor can display 1024x768, 1300x768, but not 1280x800.

Another thing to remember is that if you are running Windows Vista, you may need to check that the Windows Mobility Center recognises the external display that you are trying to use. You can find Windows Mobility Center by clicking Control Panel, then Mobile PC. It should now be listed on the screen.

Let me know how it goes, and if it works, please rate.

Hi,
You need s-video cable or VGA cable (if VGA ports are available on your laptop and TV) to connect your laptop to the tv.Connect the one end of your cable to your laptop port and another end to the tv port.and then set your tv to s-video mode.


Thanks

Screen gone wild


If your external video is working, most likely your VGA controller is good. Your laptop is using the same controller to control internal and external video. It could be two things that would cause your problem:
1. LCD VGA cable that connect your LCD to the laptop
2. Bad LCD VGA connector on the board(cold soldered joints)
3. BAD LCD panel

Any of the following repairs will require disassembling of your laptop.
