No signal on HDTV

I have a quite old pc and i recently realized that my geforce fx 5200 has a dvi i bought a dvi-hdmi cable to connect my tv with my pc to watch movies.The tv recognizes that something is connected in the hdmi port but still has "no signal". At my Nvidia control panel i tried to choose connection type put it only allowed s-video..
Ps: since i changed my drivers(yesterday) there is no more a "choose connection menu" at my nvidia control menu

Your graphics card is probably too old to support HDTV signal (720p, 1080p)

    HD ready or full HD is completely irrelevant to your situation. If your tv has an hdmi input then it most definitly has the ability to support at least a 720p input signal. The problem is your graphics card is probably unable to output a 720p signal because it is too old, and it was manufactored before HDTV became widely released. I would definitly recommend buying a new graphics card. It doesn't need to have an hdmi output, dvi is fine so long as you use the dvi-hdmi cable. Almost every graphics card made nowadays will be able to send a 720p signal (HDTV) because it has become a universal standard.

  • shayahakohen Dec 04, 2008

    There are all kinds of graphics cards, ranging from 20 bucks to a few thousand. You would probably be able to get away with a 30 dollar card. You need to make sure that your motherboard has the right slot for the card you are buying. There are genarally 3 types: PCI express, PCI, and Agp. Agp is no longer used on motherboards and hasn't been in several years, but you can still buy the cards for them. PCI express is the main one used today. If you don't have either, you can just use a regular pci slot, but the graphics card will not be as good.

Hi, I have bought LG LCD ld310 . Can I connect my computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable Thanks Jatinder Kumar

Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...

Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

What do I need to hook it up to an hdtv...what type of cables..DVI-D to HDMI?

Your laptop will need a HDMI output or a DVI output for HD video. If your laptop only has a VGA out the your tv will need a VGA or DVI input. You could use a vga to dvi adapter if your tv does not have a vga connector. They do have a DVI to HDMI adapter but there are a couple of problems with that. One you will not get the sound and the TV will only obtain sound from HDMI cable when connected that way and Two the TV will have problems processing the signal from the computer due to the HDMI will only process the HD signals at certain formats and the computer video can send out many different signals. I tried and I could not get my tv to process the signal so I got a video card that has a HDMI out and my blu-ray player works great.

I don't think the FX 5200 supports DVI. If I remember right this card only supports VGA. Hope this helps.

Hdmi and audio

It may be the top of set box.. Most times the sound and picture are auto detected by the set when HDMI is used. Both sound and video are carried in a HDMI cable but not with a S video cable. Try another HDMI cable *** dont buy the expensive one the tv don't care if they cost $125 or $25.

Nvidia fx 5200

The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website. If you have already tried this my apologies.
