Trouble cloning display from computer

I am connecting to the tv using a VGA to Component cable from the computer output to the tv input. The display on the tv is just a black and white jumbled mess. Do I need to change the resolution seeting? I have played with the different resolution settings, but without success. I have tried to clone the display to the tv, no luck... I'm just asking if there are certain setting needed for this tv?

Link ASUS laptop to Sharp Aquos LCD TV


No, a DVI to VGA adapter will not work. (The TV is looking for the digital signal from a set top box. This is different from the analog signal on the VGA cable.) You need a converter. Your best bet would be a VGA to component video converter. (I am assuming that the Sharp TV has a component video input.) This page has some examples: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc . Note a VGA to component video cable will not work. The VGA to component cables are for projectors that read the RGB signal. The component video signal is YPbPr.

Connect the VGA cable to the converter and the component video cable to the TV and the converter with the computer and TV off. Turn on the TV first and set it to the component video input and then turn on the computer. Then (assuming the VGA port is enabled - adjust in the BIOS if needed) set the computer's video output to the VGA port. (On my Windows 7 laptop, this can be done by right-clicking on the desktop. Choose Graphics Properties and set the display to the external monitor or both. Click Apply and then confirm the change (on the external monitor if using the single monitor). (VGA to Composite video converters also exist if you do not have an available component video input on your TV.)

If your computer is fairly new, you may have an HDMI port. Your TV may be able to read the signal with a DVI to HDMI cable. (It depends on the TV. Not all of them will read the computer's signal on the DVI port. Check the documentation for your model. TVs without a VGA port are less likely to support this feature.)

I hope this helps.

How To Connect Flat Panel TV to Computer


Hello <br /> First identify your TV's input connections. Most TVs these days have three basic types of inputs. You have your coaxial cable input, the same as your cable box or satellite, an RCA composite input (the yellow, red and white inputs) and an S-video connector. Newer televisions might have Component Video, DVI, VGA or HDMI inputs but the ones listed above are more common. <br /> Identify your computer's outputs. These days computer manufacturers are adding TV compatible outputs on their products so it's easy to have a pc to tv connection when you hook it up. The S-video in particular seems to be popping up on more and more computers, so a PC to TV S video connector might be what you need. You can shop for S-video cables all over the place online. Mostly you will find the usual VGA output that the regular monitor hooks up to (see more later on VGA cables). The newer multimedia computers will probably have all high definition outputs that connect directly to your HDTV, but for now we will deal with what most people have for both computers and televisions. <br /> Find the appropriate adapter for your connections. You may need to get a computer to TV cable so you can hook up your computer to the TV. If you have an HDTV, you may need a VGA to component cable. This VGA to component cable connects your computer to a HDTV and acts as a converter. (And that computer could be either a Mac or a PC.) <br /> A PC to tv connector has a VGA adapter on one end and (usually) a selection of connectors on the other (S-video, RCA composite and Component). The good thing about these is that you can take it from TV to TV and you'll be able to hook up computer to TV for all of them. I highly recommend a wireless adapter. It costs a bit more but wireless is worth not having a big cable mess and not keeping your computer near your TV. <br /> or you can get help from this video <br /><br /><img src="utube.png" /><b><i> You-Tube video "ZCN-nN1orYE" placeholder (do not delete) </i></b><img src="utube.png" /><br /><br />Hope this helps, if so do rate the Tip.<br />

How to turn on rgb from lap top to tv.


In order to connect your laptop to your TV using RGB, you need an RGB adapter. RGB is also known as component video; it breaks up a video signal into red, green and blue. laptops do not have RGB outputs. However, many laptops have VGA, DVI or HDMI outputs. An RGB adapter connects the single VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable to an RGB cable, which is actually three different cables tied together. INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Connect either the VGA, DVI or HDMI (in the order of increasing video quality) cable to the VGA, DVI or HDMI port on your laptop, depending on what is available. 2. Connect the other end of the cable to the side of the RGB adapter with the single input. 3. Connect the RGB cables to the red, green and blue ports on the other side of the RGB adapter. 4. Connect the other end of the RGB cables to an available component input on the back of the TV. 5. Tune the TV to the component video input you used through your television's menu. 6. Turn on your laptop. The laptop should now display on your TV screen.

How do I hook up my hp computer to my lg flat screen tv


You can use the TV's VGA port which needs a VGA cable which you can get from a computer hardware store. It's called RGB in on your TV. This is also called PC input.The max resolution you will get is 1,366x768 off your PC.

Can I connect an acer aspire one to a samsung TV


Yes, but it depends what outputs on the laptop, and inputs on the tv.
If they both have HDMI, then just link them up with a HDMI cable, go to the display settings in control panel and adjust the multi display settings ( clone or extend the desktop)
You may have to use a VGA d sub cable, this is ok, but you wont get any sound transfered with the picture.
I also found this advice.....

The Acer Aspire One doesn't have a TV output, but if your TV is modern, it may have component inputs.

If you have component inputs, then you can use a VGA to component convertor to output to the TV. You will need to set the video mode to something that will work on the TV, probably 640x480 at 60Hz If it is not an HDTV. Amazon sells a number of converters to go form a computer's VGA output to the component in use by most TVs today:
http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-VGA2CPNT-Component-Video-Converter/dp/B000G6Y0S6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1230836819&sr=1-1



If your TV only has S-Video, odds are that even if you use a converter, the quality on the TV will be poor - my experience using S-Video outputs from PCs is that the TV is just a blurry mess, you can't really even read text very well, and media looks like ****. Maybe the converter box will work better than the direct outputs I have experience with, but I honestly don't think that would be the case.

Here's a converter box that will make it easy, but the quality will be limited by the TV and S-Video input:
http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-VGA2NTSCPRO-High-Resolution-Converter-Control/dp/B00006B8EH/ref=pd_cp_e_2?pf_rd_p=413863501&pf_rd_s=center-41&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000G6Y0S6&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1D0SNBQSS0D1XTBY3K4N

So, you do have some options, but no guarantees on the quality level that you will get unless you have an HDTV.

Pc connect to plasma tv pioneer pdp hd5070


Depending on your graphics card you may want to try a digital lead hdmi/dvi.

Also remember you will have to change settings for your graphics card.

If it will do dual view or clone desktop then select it but set your resolution to 800x600 just to start.
If you go too high the tv or computer may not display or say out of range

vga to tc vga has been known to be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of results but for the most part they are good esp if you use a good quality cable and not one of the many cheap ones that are about..

*Yes you can: If your TV has either an S-Video input, or a VGA Input.

If it does not, then you wouldn't be able to without an S-Video-to-Component Converter. (very cheap though, if you buy one, you would use the same procedure For S-video below.

But if it does,

  • FOR S-Video Output: You would have to go into your control panel for your integrated graphics card, or graphics settings, and find where it enables you to use S-Video Output.
  • Then you would have to set the source of your TV to "S-Video" of course you also need an S-video cable to connect your TV to the input on the back of your computer, and an audio cable with a standard Stereo (3.5mm) headphone tip on one end, and standard Left/Right audio component tips on the other end. You'd Connect the stereo end of the cord into your headphone jack on the computer, and the other end with Left/right ends (usually white/red, or black/red) in to the input on the TV. (the audio input on the TV should be directly associated with, or by the s-video input jack).
  • FOR VGA Output: You would need to connect a VGA Cable to your computer, and to the VGA Input on the TV. For VGA
  • "To enable VGA out most laptops will have a keystroke such as Function-Key+F8 "Fn + F8" to enable the second display.. Look for a key that says "CRT/LCD" (the link is to an image of the key.)
  • So, [Fn + CRT/LCD]

    Most popular:
    Fn + F8
    Fn + F7
    Fn + F4
I Hope This Helps.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.
