Before you start ensure that you read the TV instruction manual to know which resolution supports it. Do not switch on the TV and your console

You can connect your Playstation 3 to your TV in three different methods:

  1. Connecting with an AV cable
  2. Connecting with an HDMI cable
  3. Connecting with an Optical Cable


Connecting with an AV Cable:


  1. You are supplied with a Composite AV cable which would typically look like the below image
  2. Connect the AV Multi Out Connector to the socket on the back of your PS3 Console.
  3. Match the colors of the Jacks with the connectors on the TV which says "Video in".




Connecting with an HDMI Cable:

HDMI cable is not supplied with the PS3. You need to purchase it seperately. This cable would enhance the audio-video quality of your TV.

  1. Just connect one end of the connector to the HDMI OUT connector socket on the back of the console
  2. Connect the other end to the socket on the back of your TV which says HDMI IN.



Connecting with an Optical cable:

You need to purchase an Optical cable if you wish to connect your PS3 console through a digital audio device (Home theater, AV receiver etc.,). You need to connect Video ouput seperately with a help of Video output cable (HDMI, AV Cable etc.,)

  1. Connect one end of the optical cable to "Audio Out" socket on the console
  2. Connect the other end to the audio receiver.


Note: You can also connect your console to the Internet to use the Playstation 3 internet capabilities. Here's how you do it:

The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type networks. It needs a High speed internet connection. Do not connect it to a standard telephone connection or cables that are not supported. It might cause a malfunction or damage to the system.

Building computer from scratch need to know where cords connect


Not a problem hicksdusty3

Post the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number.

In the meantime here is a Generic guide, (Which I despise posting),

Power cables;

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html

IDE (PATA) data cable information,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA

SATA data cable information,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_Data_Cable.jpg

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.
Known by many names, and abbreviations.

I CANNOT give you the Front Panel pinout, without knowing what Exact motherboard we are dealing with here.

Can't tell you where to attach what cable to where, on the motherboard, or any peripherals.
(Harddrive/Optical Drive {CD/DVD drive)

I also need to know if the Harddrive is an IDE (PATA) unit, or a SATA unit.
Same with the optical drive/s.

Post back in a Comment.

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.

Hi i want to instoal software but i have laptop windows vista so how to instoal


It depends on the laptop and the software. If the laptop does not have an optical drive, either download the software (many companies will let you buy the software as a download with an extra fee for either a CD/DVD sent in addition or an "download again if needed") or get an external optical drive (USB). Some of these drives use an external power brick; others are powered by USB and take 2 USB ports. The prices for the USB powered optical drives is ~$50.

If you downloaded the software, unzip the file(s) if needed then right click on the installer and select Run As Administrator. (With some software, do not let the program run when the install is finished. It can get locked to always launch the UAC to check if you are the administator.) With the external optical drive, you would install the software as you do with an internal optical drive (either auto-run or manually access the drive and find the executable file).

I hope this helps.

Acer optical drive device locked


without knowing which version of the program you got I can suggest for you to:

press start
select run

or

hold down windowskey and press r

type in services.msc

find the elock service, right click properties, disable the service, and stop the service.

you may need to set a new drive letter for the optical drives
(right click my computer - manage - left side disk management - find drives without letters, right click assing or change drive letter)

if you can't uninstall the program? its asking for a password? Its extremely easy to reset the password but would need to know what version of the software your running.

1. Make sure the two cables are installed in the back of the optical drive.
2. When you start your computer, press the key that it tells you to go into system setup or BIOS. From there, you need to find the boot device and/or boot order option and select the optical drive as the first boot device.
3. Press F10 to save and exit, making sure the first recovery disc is in the optical drive.
4. Save and exit; your computer should boot now from the optical drive.
