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

Posted by on

    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.

Can't view connected Dell Inspiron - 7c54a9b.gif


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
refresh

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
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/custom_reso...

    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.

Charging light is flashing


There are two possible causes for this issue:
1) Your dell 9400 charger is malfunction
2) Your laptop dc power jack is loose or dead

Possible troubleshooting step:
1) Borrow a compatible dell charger to plug in your laptop, if it works without any issue, it means your dell inspiron 9400 adapter need to be replaced.

2) If the compatible dell 9400 charger won't work normally, the problem may lie in your dc power jack.

Hope this will help.
