Okay yesterday I spent a whole lot of time hooking my Wii console to my computer monitor. My video card had a video input where I attatched my Wii's video cable. I downloaded a free program called "Dscaler" and finally was able to see the Wii's screen. Although I there is a lag time of about 3 seconds for the wii video to be displayed.
Plz. Help me if u can.

Re: Hooking wii to computer
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.

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.
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.

I found a better way and it works fine. I have a new 32 inch Emerson, with only one composit hood up ( which won't work with the wii) 2 HDMI's ( again does not hook up to the wii, the monitor hook up for PC, red and white ( yellow plus is not there it's for a stereo they told me), and the usb hook up ( which is more for pictures I was told by the company).The answer was to hook my RCA plus to the red and white under the composite, then hook the yellow into the green plug of the composite, and behold- my will now works fine.
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.
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)
