Wii's aren't designed to be hooked to a computer monitor, but basically it's gonna boil down to your video card and software. Odds are, you're gonna have a lag no matter what you do when since it has to be processed by the cpu before it can be displayed.

700 g goes blank says input: analog


Hook a spare monitor to the pc computer, if picture okay! problem lies in the 700 g but if both show the same, it is the video graphics card in the computer that is defective. It would be a good idea to change the video cord from the computer to the monitor to rule it out.

After my computer updated and restarted my computer no longer recognizes the monitor attatched. still same cables and DVI connection, but why doesnt it work now? sayd no input?


If you have a VGA monitor, connect that to the computer - it is the default connection and should always work. There is a possibility that the update was for the video card and the settings went back to default. You may have to change the setting to get the DVI out, but in order to do so, you must hook-up a VGA monitor.

The picture appear black&white. I have HDTV.


I had this problem with a 'universal' console component video cable. Had a B&W Wii screen, and couldn't set the Wii to HDTV.

Spent most of an afternoon switching the Wii between LCD televisions, annoying Samsung tech support (who are a very, very good tech support system, by the way) and so on.

Took back the cable and the guy said, "Did you remember to turn the little TV/HDTV switch here?"

There IS a tiny little switch on these combo cables, right on the common point of the various console connector plugs. I switched it. It worked. All is good again. Hope so for you too.

ASUS MM17T lcd monitor switches off within 3 seconds after openin


If you have another monitor to plug in to your computer I would try that to verify your video card is good on your computer, most of the time your monitor will flicker off when there is no video signal detected. If your video card is good on your computer, then it could be an input cable, try another input source type, like if it is set up for HDMI and you have a spare SVGA cable hook that up to see if it work. The auto input control board in your monitor might also be going out too. Sounds like it might be time for a new monitor, they are repairable but a lot of work.

Wii Computer Hookup


you need a faster computer to fix this, the delay is caused by the computer coding the incomming signal.. any way why would you want to go via the computer anyway (unless you wish to capture what you are doing (the lag should not matter for this). If you are just trying to put the display of this onto the monitor, there are probably better ways of doing this directly to the monitor.(rather than going through the PC)
