LG 22" TV with Geforce nVidia 5500 FX 256MB AGP card

I have Geforce nVidia 5500 FX 256MB AGP card and 22LG30R TV (used as monitor) from DVI link. Naive resolution of the TV is 1680*1050 while I am able to get 1280*1024 resolution only despite a week of google searching. If I try to use custom resolution of 1680*1050 in nVidia control panel, I get blank screen. I am using 93.71 forceware nVidia driver. Please help !

Try getting a new video driver. Foreware = motherboard drivers and such, not video.

I saw this driver on Nvidia.com

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html

Its the XP driver for those 5000 series FX cards like yours. Try installing that and checking out the Nvidia Panel after.

1680x1050 is an odd resolution for TV, that is what normal 22" monitors have but I guess it will do up to 1680x1050 only when hooked up to a PC.

Im trying to use my TV as my monitor for my pc?


What problem are you having? The connection should be fairly straight forward depending on your computer's video out. You can use a VGA cable, DVI to HDMI (check your graphics card manual for single link or dual link on the DVI side), or component video (even S-video). If you have HDMI out on the video card, use an HDMI cable. If you want to connect to the TV's speakers, you need at least an 3.5 mm audio cable (or 3.5 mm to RCA audio).

The DVI cable can be either a DVI to HDMI cable or DVI to DVI or HDMI to HDMI with a DVI to HDMI adapter at one or the other end.

I hope this helps.

(you will need to go through the input modes to find the signal. Some TVs need to be on (with no signal) before the computer is turned on.)

Connecting an LCD TV to a computer to use as TV and Comp. Monitor.


Im no expert on the subject, but I use my L37 for a monitor, and use just the vga adapter. It works good as a monitor, and both dvds and my hdtv wonder tuner card look great through the vga connection. They do make adapters for dvi to hdmi. Although, hdmi also carries sound, but you wont get that out of your dvi output from your card. So you might not have sound when using that connection, as your tv may not look to the headphone type jack used for sound imput from your computer when you select the hdmi source on it. If you have speakers already connected to your computer you may not care. Also if you have a 720 p Vizio, 1366x768 is the highest resolution you are going to get out of it anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'm Not sure why you would need 2 connectios to the same monitor either. I posted 1 link below because they had several dvi to hdmi adapters. Hope that helps.

Acer LCD Monitor AL2671W - screen too bright!


I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.

At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.

Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!

Fuzzy picture with DVI input from NVIDIA PC Card


I have the same TV and I found that increasing the DPI percentage (Dots Per Inch) you could reduce the fuzzy stuff, but in its still no where close to being the same quality as VGA. Hope that helps.
