I suspect the TV is unable to use the Horizonal and Vertical scan frequencies put out by your computer.

How do i connect my computer to my rca tv


Hi, You will need to provide the TV model and Laptop model.
This will allow us to determine what type of input/output ports is available for the TV & laptop.

Commonly, today's devices simply connects together through a HDMI cable, which functions as both your audio and video connection.

Does your computer have an HDMI port?
It should look like the the middle port in the picture below.

What type of cable do I need to connect my HP desktop computer to my TV set so that I can watch web content on a bigger screen?


You can connect the video with an SVGA cable. If you want the sound to come through the TV easiest solution is to get an HDMI cable, assuming your laptop has the output for it and your tv has the input for it. It's a trapezoid port if you have it.

Connect my aspire 5332 to my digital tv


There are a few things that need to present or applicable for this to work.

First off you need to have either a HDMI cable that can be plugged into your TV( tv and laptop must have one for this option to work). And you'd need to have the channel on your TV set to which ever channel recieves HDMI input.

Second you could have a monotor cable with two ends to attach to your laptop and TV as well as an audio cable like you get for computer speakers to have a line in and a line out, you may need an adapter for the video, usually with newer tvs like my 25.5" LCD HDTV from Samsung they provided this cable and a adapter. After they are connected you'd still have to set the channel to the correct one for the input to receive a picture from your laptop for example my tv channel for my PC is called DVI and my HDMI connection is HDMI 1

If you dont have either of those then you would need an S video cord and a audio cord with it to connect your output (from laptop) to the input hole (into tv) for this to work. And the channel would have to correctly set again.

If none of these help please post in more detail.

I have an HDMI Cable how do I connect my computer to my Plasma TV


Your laptop has to have an HDMI output and the tv has to have an HDMI input. Put the tv on that HDMI source inpput, the laptop will sense the new device and install a driver for it, which is your video driver. Your video driver has to be capable of driving two monitors. The best bet here is to update the video drivers. When it senses the TV, the tv will show what the computer monitor shows and windows will ask you if you want to use the tv as the primary or leave the setting as they are and run both monitors. Whatever you choose, when you power down either the tv or the computer the computer will sense the change and revert back to the default settings.

Connecting my laptop to my tv via hdmi


The first step is to determine whether the computer, the HDMI cable or the TV is the faulty link in the chain. I know it's a tremendous hassle to try a different TV, different computer, etc. But it will at least narrow the problem down to one component. My guess is that it's something in the computer that needs reconfiguring; that would be the most likely scenario, assuming you have a new HDMI cable.
