Problems connecting computer to tv via dvi

I can't seem to use the tv as a computer monitor. I have dvi video output on my computer and I've connected the tv to the computer using a dvi-d cable. However, the tv shows no signal and computer (as well as another laptop w/dvi out) are not able to detect the tv.

Re: problems connecting computer to tv via dvi

Not sure if you have fixed your problem or not. When I hook up my pc to the ILO 32 HD...I ran DVI input for can also use HDMI if you like..I had a problem with sound and had to use a splitter and run sound into AV2 IN to get sound for some reason...your no picture...if you are getting a black screen, you need to set the resolution on your pc. VGA to 640x480 and SVGA should be 800x600 and XGA should set at 1024x768..most likely the last one is the one you need..and this is not a normal pc res....set your refresh rate to 60HZ. All this is done in the control panel/display/settings tab. Also remember that you need to change your source on the TV to the proper connection to see component, HDMI etc.

How do i get my westinghouse sk 26h730s monitor to work with my HP desktop computer with windows XP?

There should not be a driver required for this. As long as your HP desktop has a VGA video or HDMI video output, you can connect to the back panel of the TV from the video port of the PC. Then, on the remote, select the "PC" option for VGA input, or HDMI for the HDMI 1 or 2 input(s). If the PC only has DVI output, then it is important to know if the output is analog or digital. If it is digital (DVI-D or DVI-DD] then there is no available port on the TV to support it. Using a DVI-VGA adapter on a DVI digital output will not work as there must be a digital-to-analog conversion in order to work.

Link ASUS laptop to Sharp Aquos LCD TV

No, a DVI to VGA adapter will not work. (The TV is looking for the digital signal from a set top box. This is different from the analog signal on the VGA cable.) You need a converter. Your best bet would be a VGA to component video converter. (I am assuming that the Sharp TV has a component video input.) This page has some examples: . Note a VGA to component video cable will not work. The VGA to component cables are for projectors that read the RGB signal. The component video signal is YPbPr.

Connect the VGA cable to the converter and the component video cable to the TV and the converter with the computer and TV off. Turn on the TV first and set it to the component video input and then turn on the computer. Then (assuming the VGA port is enabled - adjust in the BIOS if needed) set the computer's video output to the VGA port. (On my Windows 7 laptop, this can be done by right-clicking on the desktop. Choose Graphics Properties and set the display to the external monitor or both. Click Apply and then confirm the change (on the external monitor if using the single monitor). (VGA to Composite video converters also exist if you do not have an available component video input on your TV.)

If your computer is fairly new, you may have an HDMI port. Your TV may be able to read the signal with a DVI to HDMI cable. (It depends on the TV. Not all of them will read the computer's signal on the DVI port. Check the documentation for your model. TVs without a VGA port are less likely to support this feature.)

I hope this helps.

How To Use My Olevia Television As A Computer Monitor

There are a number of ways this can be done. It will depend a lot on the graphics card you are using in your computer. All graphics cards released for the last few generations from both ATI and Nvidia (and all Intel IGPs labeled HD) have an HDMI output. This is the simplest option. You simple connect the TV via HDMI, set it to the right output, and power up the computer.

If you do not wish to use the speakers in the TV, then you can manually set the audio output to default to your other speakers.

If your graphics card/computer does not have an HDMI output, you will need to buy an adapter for one of the other outputs. DVI to HDMI would be the best second options. Then S-Video (which should look like a circle with dots a a line in it) to component (5 inputs, 3 video/2audio). The adapter will only have plugs for the video.

Any connections beyond this should be avoided as they will not be able to match the resolution of the TV. Forcing the TV or graphics card to upscale say a VGA connection to the proper resolution will create a lot of distortion and give you a terrible image.

How can I connect Panasonic TH-37PX60U Flat panel plasma tv to my computer?

It will depend on your video output options on the computer. If you have HDMI output, just use an HDMI cable and an audio cable (this will need to be a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable). If you have a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable and the audio cable (or a DVI to HDMI adapter and either a DVI or HDMI cable depending on which side you want to put the adapter). If you only have VGA out from the computer, use a VGA to DVI adapter and the DVI to HDMI connection and the audio connection. (Theoretically this should work but each adapter will have some signal loss issues.)

Some graphics cards have a video output, S-video or Component video, which would also connect to your TV with the audio cable. (Read your cards manual for more information)

I hope this helps.

(For DVI to HDMI cables, you will need to check if you have a single link or dual link DVI output. The wrong cable may not work.)

Have Dell Dimension 2400 and wanting to connect to Emerson LD195EMX.. attach to PC Monitor connection but no scrren comes up/// WHat else can I do?

Is the PC monitor connection - a DVI or DVI-I connection a 15-pin VGA connection an RCA video connection?
Have you set the television input to match the connector used on the TV?
The display resolution on your computer may not be set to a resolution your TV can handle. There is no point trying to put a 1280 by 800 signal into a VGA connector. Start with 640 by 480. However, this will not give you the high resolution you have come to expect from your PC's monitor.
This set also has HDMI input. If your computer has a DVI or DVI-I output, you can buy an adapter that will connect to that HDMI input. Note that this will only handle the video portion of the output from your computer and you will have to use analog connections for the sound and figure out which TV menu input selections allow high definition video with analog sound (not all sets can do this).
Note that LED TVs are not like CRT TVs where an electron beam can put a dot anywhere on the screen. An LED TV has fixed resolution modes.
It might be necessary to use a software product like "PowerStrip" to create a custom resolution mode that will show a high resolution image that will fill the screen of your TV. I wound up using 1352 x 648 to give a full screen image on my LED TV using the HDMI input. ("Your mileage may vary.")
There is a lot more to connecting a high resolution computer display to an LED TV than just plugging it into the "PC Input".

Connecting an LCD TV to a computer to use as TV and Comp. Monitor.

Im no expert on the subject, but I use my L37 for a monitor, and use just the vga adapter. It works good as a monitor, and both dvds and my hdtv wonder tuner card look great through the vga connection. They do make adapters for dvi to hdmi. Although, hdmi also carries sound, but you wont get that out of your dvi output from your card. So you might not have sound when using that connection, as your tv may not look to the headphone type jack used for sound imput from your computer when you select the hdmi source on it. If you have speakers already connected to your computer you may not care. Also if you have a 720 p Vizio, 1366x768 is the highest resolution you are going to get out of it anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'm Not sure why you would need 2 connectios to the same monitor either. I posted 1 link below because they had several dvi to hdmi adapters. Hope that helps.

Using a Sony Bravia HDTV as a monitor for a Macbook Air

Hey RHSully,

In addition to connecting your Macbook to the TV, you may also need to adjust the video output signal coming from the computer itself. Several of the TV's in Sony's Bravia model line should include a list of the optimal settings for each screen resolution within the owner's manual, but you may need to search through Sony's online support site if you can't find this list for your specific model.

Hope this helps you out.

Video Input Selection Problem

That is due to the fact that you can only connect 1 desktop to the HP LP2465 as most monitors.

For one the LP2465 does not have the picture in picture technology and for another the two ports you are connecting your Macs into are DVI (Digital Video Interface) connections. One is the Single DVI and the other is a Dual DVI.

It does not mean you can connect two Mac computers to the same display and both work. That is not practical because there is only one video input interaction possible with a computer and a monitor.

The DVI connections are determined by their ability to use either Analog and Digital signal transmissions through one connector.

So in order to effectively use your HP LP2465, you can only use 1 computer with the monitor because it is not designed to work with two computer graphics cards at once. Most LCDs have only one DVI or VGA connector to connect to a computer- your just happens to host two types of DVI connections is all..

That is the reason one computer is on with your display and the other is not displaying any video.

Take a look at this great explanation of the differences between Single DVI and Dual DVI connectors via this link:

No signal

Weegee, Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out for info on DVI interfaces.
