Question about Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop
I've been trying to connect my laptop to the Samsung TV using a VGA cable (male to male). I think I've determined its something to do with the tv because the cable works when I plug it into my monitor on my personal computer. I cannot get the tv to register that anything is plugged into the PC slot. When i press source it is only recognising the DVD player and Sky box plugged in through scart. Any suggestions? I hook my Gateway GM5442 PC to my Vizio 32" LCD using a VGA cable. I get picture but no sound. I also have tried to connect a 3.5mm male-male between the two devices. I've tried a pair of RCA-RCA cables from my PC to stereo. All my device drivers seem up to date. My speakers (that came with the desktop). work but they also have a USB cord configured in the setup.
The following connections available to connect ur computer to an TV:
S-Video output: If you have video card(external u will have this), you require an s-video cable and you connect s-video out of your computer to the s-video int of our TV.
TV-OUT: if you have video card(external u wil have this) you you require an coxial cable and you have to connect TV-out of your computer to TV-IN of our TV(it is place where cable connection goes from your cable operator)
DVI-D: if you have video card(external u will have this) you require an DVI-D cable you haveto connect DVI-D out of your computer(a white 15-pin port which looks like VGA port) ....
VGA: it is the port on your computer which is only used to connect to your computer but not to your TV or LCD(strictly)
