Question about iLO 2600 Television

1 Answer

Wrong resolution My manual says that the correct resolution for this "monitor" is 1025x768, but it will not accept this resolution at all. It will work with 800x600 and with 1280x768, but don't try to turn the tv off at 1280x768 because it will not come back at that resolution. It will say that it is an unsupported resloution. What gives?!!

Re: Wrong resolution

The Video card fitted in the computer may have different resolutions.They may not match with the resolutions suggested by the monitor manuel. So you get the closest resolution. Also the number you have mentioned is: 1025x768. Is it a typo error? It is probably 1024x768.
I don't think it should be taken as aproblem.

We have a bang and olufsen beovision 7 40 inch tv. when we try to connect our laptop through vga port the tv appears blank without any display, tried connecting the laptop through dvi port also. The...

First, try setting your monitor refresh rate at 60Hz using a known-working monitor. (The VGA input of the Beovision 7 is recommended for 60Hz refresh rate). If this fails to produce output from the Beovision 7, it is very likely, your video driver's resolution is set too high for the Beovision 7 to display signal. If you are using the Beovision 7 as your primary monitor, first connect a known-working monitor to the computer and reduce the resolution to 1024x768. Once you have changed the resolution, try connecting the Beovision 7. If you get video signal, increase the resolution incrementally until you find the maximum resolution the Beovision 7 will handle.

IF YOU ARE USING THE BEOVISION 7 AS A SECONDARY MONITOR USING EXTENDED DESKTOP, reduce the resolution on Monitor 2 output to 1024x768. If video appears on the Beovision 7 at that resolution, incrementally increase the Monitor 2 resolution until you find the maximum resolution the Beovision 7 will accept as a secondary monitor.

When i try to connect my laptop to my rca l40fhd41, it will show for a few seconds then a message comes up on the tv "unsupported" and it wont work as a monitor.

You need to reset the laptop video screen output resolution and refresh rate to something compatible with the HDTVs acceptable parameters. Consult the TVs owner's manual for a chart showing the acceptable screen resolutions and refresh rates. You are looking for numbers like 1024 X 768 or 600 X 800 for screen resolution. Your laptop will allow you to setup different screen resolutions for output. You just have to find one the TV likes.

Im trying to connect my laptop/pc with lg lcd 36 inch tv with vga cable, but its nt working......please help me out.

Assuming that the LCD TV accepts a computer, what resolution is it set to and what is the maximum resolution of the TV. They must equal.
Have you pressed the correct function button on your laptop to turn the VGA output socket on?
Check your laptop manual for instruction on the last item
Hope that helps.

I am using the tv as a computer monitor and I was wondering what the best resolution is to use?

Hi Dbroker
If you are using a lcd tv with the 16:9 format as monitor then the 1280X768 is the best resolution to use.
But if your monitor/tv cannot accept this resolution then 1024X768 would be the optimal.
Hope this helps Goodbye

I plugged in the VGA cord from my computer to my television

Most likely your current resolution isn't supported by the TV. Before you plug your TV up to your computer, set your desktop resolution to 1024 x 768. This is the standard and is supported by most if not all flat screens. If it doesn't work on this setting try 800 x 600 or 1280 x 768. One of those three should show up. If no resolutions work, then there is something wrong with the TV. If other monitors work on your computer then the computer is just fine.

Hello i have a 50 inch plasma tv and cannot hook my toshiba satellite laptop up to it via a D cable. Get message that mode is not supported. Help!


Please set the output resolution of the Laptop to something within the range of the TV.

On the laptop desktop, change the "settings" of the 2nd monitor to 1024 x 768.

You should then get a picture, once you have the picture you can increase the resolution to the one you want.

If you have the TV manual you can check and see what it will accept.

try to adjust to a compatible rate. the monitor manual will give you its compatible rates. the video card should have that rate available. if not, you may damage the monitor with the wrong rate.
stop and try another monitor that has a refresh rate available on your video card.

Resolution issue when connecting to a PC

if the tv accepts 640 x 480 via DVI lead in safe mode, then as long as the tv is set to work in conjunction with the same resolution as your pc by the pc to DVI setting, it must be your pc's graphics driver that is the problem, as in safe mode the graphics vga driver only is loaded and not the advanced graphics options and resolutions, so enabling you to view on an external monitor. You should be able to right click on your desktop, then graphics properties and select either clone/dual or monitor. If this option does not show then you need to go into your graphics cards properties and ensure that an external screen or multiple display; is enabled, depending on your graphics driver.
