Can't view connected Dell Inspiron 9400 computer on Toshiba 37 AV52U TV

    Still nothing and the TV reads unsupported video signal.

  • tobneden Mar 08, 2009

    Both the Dell computer and the Toshiba TV have 15 pin, VGA cable ends (both male). My menu with PC setting is still gray indicating not a proper connection. Some folks talked about hitting Fn and another to fix it?

You need to change your computer display settings following your TV user manual.

Here follow the compatible display settings as on page 57-chapter 9 on manual.

Put resolution 640x480 and frequency 59,940Htz.

Here the user manual where you can find the same information on chapter 9.

See How to change display settings: screen resolution, screen

Do not forget to evaluate the solution.

Many thanks.

The resolution on the 2nd monitor is too high for the television please lower it.

    The refresh rate may also be too high, I will have to check the spesifications of your tv.

  • Ekse Mar 08, 2009

    The max resolution seems to be 1280x720. you may have a resolution that has higher height, for example 768. You need to use a resolution that is either under 720 or exactly 720. you can create custom resolutions on computer video card settings.

    I need to know how you are hooking this up to the tv.

    here is a guide for Nvidia on how to create a custom resolution, note that it will most likely look diffrent on your computer. To get to nvidia control panel, right click on your desktop and select nvidia control panel or properties, and from properties go to settings and from settings advanced. and from there nvidia.

    here is the guide

    it will look diffrent as nvidia has updated their control panel. but it will be basicly the same process.

    humm, maybe you are hooking TV with wrong cable.
    Please check TV Menu options to select auto or multiple computer signal.

How do I connect my dell inspiron 3847 running windows 10 to my tv


Wayne Vernon,
Since you do not mention the tv you are connecting to I cannot be sure about it. With that said you may need to go into the TV Controls and set the TV to HDMI 1 OR 2 and then see if that will correct itself.
Thank You,

You can try connecting an external monitor to see if you get a display on the external monitor. If so then you have a problem with Inspiron LCD screen or video circuit on the motherboard. Here is a link to the setup guide which has the location of external VGA connector on the back view:

Dell inspiron 1520 how do i connect to my tv


The Dell has a VGA port 15 pin DSub connector and if your TV has a 15 pin viseo connector the you need a 15 pin video cable. Check the connectors on the Dell and TV so you get the correct connectors. You will need to select the computer input on your TV so it can display the Dell computer video images.

Upgrade hardrive


This could be due to the fact that Dell places an image on the original HD to enable restore/recovery functions. Cloning is possible but you risk the ability to restore to factory condition afterward. Seagate has DiscWizard to do this and Maxtor has Maxblast.

EVGA 9400 GTvideo card problem only 1x mode


Sounds like the processor is not enough GHz to run the video card. If I am not mistaken the 9400 GT needs a 2.3GHz or higher processor and needs a 400 watt powersupply to run properly so if your computer is not set up to those specs the card will not work properly

How to play movies from computer on tv?


if your tv has vga in, then you need a vga to vga cable (like a screen wire) then change the resolution in the settings of windows (put 800X640 resolution before you plug tv so that you can know what is supported)

if it doesent then you cant do anything other than buying a video card with hdmi or dvi (with a dvi to hdmi) with a hdmi cable then plug it in (will auto detect)
