You may have left out a couple of steps.

Now, you need to configure the new display, by selecting "Control Panel" from the "Start" Menu. Then double-click the "Display" icon and click the "Settings" tab.

The manual for your HDMI TV will list the screen resolutions it supports, along with the refresh rates. Configure the resolution in the "Settings" tab, and then click the "Advanced" button to set the refresh rate.

If you are using the HDMI TV as the second monitor, you will also have to configure how it is used by Windows, according to the instructions pertaining to your video card. Most cards offer a "Clone" or "Mirror" mode, where both screens display the same content. Alternately, the "Extended Desktop" mode can be used, in which each monitor will operate independently.

Now, again, reboot your PC to apply the changes.

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

My computer starts up but the screen sa ys no signal


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty


If its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail.


Even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.


Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free.


Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


Check the VGA cable connection running from the computer to the monitor.

This cable must be completely inserted into both VGA connection ports, otherwise the video signal is not going to reach the display.


Disconnect the VGA cable from the computer and monitor, then look at the metal connectors on both ends.

If you are missing connection pins, the video signal is not going to transfer between hardware correctly.


To fix this problem, you must obtain a new VGA cable (at any computer or electronics store) to send the video signal.


Examine the power connection on the monitor.

If the monitor is not receiving power, it is not going to turn on.


Turn off the monitor for a few minutes, then power it back on.

Like other computer hardware, the monitor may not initially turn on correctly.


Move the mouse and press the "Enter" key on the computer keyboard.

If the computer is in sleep mode, the monitor is going to appear as if it does not have any display.



Hope this helps.

Unable to connect to samsung tv as monitor for hp laptop


Hi there
DSUB is VGA, has your TV got a VGA port on the back? if so and you know what the source the channel is then you will need a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo jack to left and right male phono jacks for the audio, the DSUB or VGA does not carry audio through it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

CHANGEING MONITORS


Hi Laura and welcome to FixYa!

Yes, you should be able to change your monitor. You will notice that if you unplug your monitor's cable from the back of your computer, you will see an adapter that looks like the one below (called VGA).

I can't seem to find the specs on the new monitor you mentioned, but most new LCDs (flat screens) have DVI cables, which look like the picture below.

0344565.jpg

Don't worry, its an easy fix. Go down to your local electronic store and ask for a "VGA to DVI converter". It will look like the one in the picture below. Mine cost me about $8 USD.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Happy Holidays,
