I had the TV connected to my PC when it broke, I restarted the computer and the TV kind of freaked out. Then, when I would turn the TV on, there would just be a blue screen... after a couple of hours of trying to get it to work the blue screen started turning black. I would try changing the input from PC to TV, but no buttons work on the remote or on the TV. I have to unplug the TV to get it to turn off.
Any clues? Someone told me the tuner. But I don't know how the tuner could make no buttons work, etc. I'm thinking the motherboard.

check to see if your TV remote has an "input" selection. Look for something like "line" or "PC" as a choice. Failing that, your computer might not be generating the signal on the cable yet. With the cable connected try the F8 key on your computer, or just restarting it.
Click on start. Then click on Run.
Type in MS config.
Uncheck load startup Items.
click on ok and then click on restart.
Any application which turns on and starts using your port when the computer turns on would stop loading on their own and you will have free ports to use.
The USB entry is mostly used for a foto slide show.
Please read the owners manual before plugging in any kind of USB sticks or other cable's in a TV set.
It can damage the set when there is a ground connection between some devices.
It really needs to get to a shop. It could be a failed hard drive, bad ram, or a motherboard issue. If it posts (you get a logo or some kind of screen), then it could be a software issue. There's not much way to tell without proper testing of the parts.
You need to first narrow down the problem to either your PC or the external hard drive. Do you have access to any other PCs you could try connecting your hard drive to? (think friends, family, public PCs, etc)
If the hard drive works on other PCs, we know it isn't a problem with the hard drive.
If it turns out that the hard drive is fine and the PC is the problem, I would suggest going in to Device Manager and uninstalling everything USB related. Once you have done this, either reboot your PC or right-click inside device manager and "scan for new hardware". All of your USB related devices should reload their drivers automatically. You may want to try this both with and without the usb drive connected.
try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.
give me more info
Turn the mouse over and find the small
rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it.
This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on
the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or
Hope this helps you. Bud
Hello Ruxi, The problem could be viral in nature. Are you running an Anti Virus application, and if so are it's virus definitions up to date? Do you hear any sounds (through your speakers, or the hard drive spinning) when you re boot the computer? And what do you mean by "it just broke down"? Have you tried to enter your BIOS or boot to "Safe Mode" on boot or do you not even see anything on the screen at all ever now? You can try the above if you haven't already, and let us know what you find. We'll be checking on this, and Good luck.
It actually sounds like you might have a hardware problem. If you're comfortable with opening the computer, remove any recently added hardware. If no hardware was added, then it may be necessary to remove each of the components in the following order and retest the boot process until it functions, and replace the last part removed.
Pressing F8 and/or reading the CDROM that early in the BOOT sequence is not possible, so it's in a hardware check.
Floppy, CDROM, SoundCard, Network Card, <any other cards>, extra RAM, except one or two to be able to boot.
It is also possible that either internally or externally, a cable may be loose. If you are able reseat all the cables, this may make it work. Stuff can come loose and the computer freaks out.
Lastly, if you feel like making sure that component is the problem, start plugging all pieces back in and all may work. This would mean that something was loose.
