How can i add monitor with hdmi cable to an hP all in one computer


Hello Anon,

I believe your P.C. has a DVI socket on the back, if it is a DVI-D, it only carries digital signals. If it is a DVI-I socket, it carries both digital and analogue signals, either way, you need to get a DVI-to-HDMI adaptor, (Ebay or Amazon), connect it to the DVI socket on your P.C. then plug your HDMI lead into it and the monitor.


Regards,

Ron.

Having problem setting up hdmi on my gateway e1 tower


if you have a DVI port on your PC a DVi-HDMI converter is fairly cheap

DVI is one of the most common graphics card output formats for any PC. a VGA-HDMI adaptation is possible but usually very difficult

I can get picture with hdmi connected but no sound. Do i have to connect the optical digital audio cable from PC to TV to get sound? Actually the video and sound go to stereo receiver first, video passes...


If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.

I am looking to purchase a new Dell computer. In


HDMI is digital and uncompressed signal while the above mentioned interfaces are analog. A digital source is translated into less precise analog signal in an analog interface. After that signal is sent to the television and then converted back into digital signal to display on screen. Due to this, some distortion of picture quality is caused at each translation. HDMI removes the analog conversion and preserves original signal and delivers richest, sharpest picture. Separate audio signals are required by other video interfaces. Due to large amount of bandwidth available in HDMI, it not only transmits video but audio channels up to eight digital audio channels can also be transmitted through HDMI. The entire process becomes simple because a number of wires are replaced by a single wire. It also delivers much better performance.
The HDMI “Type B” have 29 wires while standard HDMI or “Type A” has 19 wires. Motion picture industry and other professional applications use “Type B” HDMI wires. HDMI enabled components talk to each other via an interface that is why it is also called Intelligent HDMI. All-in-one functionality of remote and other interoperable features are provided by HDMI but not by other technologies.
High-Definition and enhanced video and other standard formats are supported by HDMI. Backward compatibility with DVI (Digital Video Interface) is also supported. DVI/HDMI cable can be used to connect HDMI interface in high-end graphic cards that have DVI port. DVI/HDMI cable has HDMI connector at one end and DVI connector at the other. Another point to note is that degradation of signal can occur if the length of the HDMI cable exceeds 5 meters (15 feet).
At least one HDMI interface was provided in many high-end televisions since 2005. Two HDMI interfaces provides more flexibility and three might be better in cases where one wants to connect a game console. As the TV industry installs HDMI interfaces into more peripheral components, multiple interfaces will become common on TVs.

It is good to have it.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

How do I hook up the moniter to the CPU?


First figure out what output video the computer has. These days it can be VGA, DVI, or HDMI. Then determine what video inputs are on the monitor (same list). Then plug in the desired cable. Many monitors only come with the VGA cable. If you do not have a VGA port on the computer you would need a DVI to VGA adapter to use that cable. Otherwise buy the DVI or HDMI cable. (DVI to HDMI cables exist if you have HDMI but no DVI on the monitor and only DVI on the computer. However, you need to check your video specs closely. A Single link DVI is different than Dual-link DVI and the cables are not interchangeable.)

Once the data and power cords are plugged in, power up the monitor and then the computer. The computer should find the new hardware and install (or ask for a disc to install) the drivers.

I hope this helps.

Is it possible to connect my computer with a VGA output to my HDTV with HDMI inputs?


hi there, sure it is.
either check if the video card has two output interfaces(VGA and HDMI) so use the white HDMI-otlet with a cable and your TV, else do get an VGA-to- HDMI adaptor and try connecting the VGA outlet and your TV-set.

Good luck

Acer aspire 3610 can i use my laptop to connect to lcd tv i have vga output


So if there is not a vga input connection on your lcd tv which most do. You can get a vga to dvi cable adapter in conjunction with a dvi to hdmi conversion cable. Note that you may have to change your resolution settings in order to veiw computer images on your lcd t.v. If your laptop has an svideo output you can also connect this way but the image quality will be greatly reduced.

My visonteck 1300 graphics card box states that it can be interfaced with my hdtv via dvi cord, where do i find a cord for it? what is it DVI to USB or DVI to PCmoniter cord?


Depending on the connections on your HDTV you'll have a few different options.

DVI on HDTV - Using a simple DVI to DVI cable will work. (DVI is the larger port on your video card - generally white in color)

VGA on HDTV - Use a standard VGA monitor cable to connect them. (VGA is the Blue 15pin connector on the video card)

HDMI on HDTV - This is the case for most new HDTVs - You'll need a DVI to HDMI cable - your local electronic store will have these in the tv section.

If all else fails you can use s-video (the circular connector) this is much lower quality though.
