First, make sure the VGA cable is plugged into the AV6 slot on the back of the TV.

You will have to go into your computer, and click Start --> Control Panel --> Appearances and Themes --> Display --> Settings and change the screen resolution to 800 x 600 first.

Then go into the program for your Graphics Card and change the screen resolution to 800 x 600 with a 60Hz Refresh Rate - sinc ethis will most likely be a change for you, your computer screen will seem to "flash" a bit - your eyes will adjust as you become used to this.

The other resolutions that work will be the following, but the 60 Hz refresh rate is the key:
Supported Display Resolution•Computer formats: 640 x 48060Hz, 800 x 600 60Hz, 1024 x768 60Hz, 1280 x 720 60Hz•

Where do you watch movie on a computer


The DV10 lets you connect 3 types video cables. VGA, Component, or RCA composite. Look at your computer to see what video outputs it provides.

If you Google VGA cable, Component, or RCA composite, you'll see what these cables look like.

Want to put computer movie on tv


Sort of depends on the TV connections? Your laptop specs list a VGA prot and a HDMI port. What does the TV have? HDMI? VGA? Do you have the cables? Does your TV have a USB port? If so, you can put the Movie on USB. Does your TV have a Wireless Adapter? If so, you can add/share your videos from a Home Network. There are option but without the TV info, I can't give a informed solution.

I have a usb port and I want to watch nexflex can


Hi - No, that would not be how to set it up (It wouldn't work) You would plug a VGA cable like the one most likely plugged into your monitor (15 pin connector on each end) from your PC video card (this is with both machines powered off) into the VGA port which you have on the TV.
With the PC on turn on the TV and with the remote select your source (would be called VGA or PC) and there would be your PC display on the TV. Bring up your browser and login to Netflix. The sound would come through your PC speaker and you would be watching movies on your 42 inch display.
Enjoy, Mikeywaf

If your tv has a VGA socket suitable for a computer then all you require is to set your laptop resolution to suit your tv screen and a VGA plug to plug lead and you're watching video's.

Not to computer saavy so please keep it simple. I have a Sony Vaio VGC RA840G desktop with 5.1 surround sound. Also have a Samsung LN46A850 S1F HDTV. Also a home theater system. This is hooked up to cable...


From the looks of the TV manual you have everything right, so it's very odd you're running into this problem.

Have you tried swapping through the sources? I find with one of the TVs we have on display at work that any time I'm having some troubles with it I will change the source from PC to something else, then back to PC.

If that doesn't work then I'd suggest you try reseting the sound settings back to factory default. The instructions are on page 45 of the TV manual. From the TV menu select "Sound", then "Sound Reset", then either "Reset All" or "Reset Sound Mode". I would suggest reseting all.

Last option would be to try using the headphone jack in the side of the TV, though this is a last resort kind of thing since you would have to unplug it every time you wanted to use the cable box.

Hope this helps :)

Watch movies from computer to tv


look on the back or sides of the unit. it should have a hdmi cable hookup, it will look like a monitor input, then you have to make sure you set the tv input to that. then you have to set your laptop to add another monitor to be able to use it.
