Why won't my tv display my computer screen

I hooked an S-VGA cord to my computer and then to my new tv. Is there a difference between S-VGA and just VGA? The tv screen just says "No Signal"

    Thank you Muchaco for you response. I'm not at home so I don't have my tv and computer info but I just bought this Proscan tv about a month ago. LCD/HDTV/DVD-Combo. My computer is about six months old and is a Toshiba. One of the reasons I wanted this tv is because I am supposed to hook my computer to it. But so far I just get a blank screen with a message that says No Signal.

    S-VGA or S-Video? What kind and model of computer? What kind and model of TV?


    As far as the difference, there really is none if you are dealing with newer tv's and computers. Newer tv's will support SVGA.  In the late 80's and Early 90s it meant something. If you had a monitor capable of SVGA it could display 800x600 resolution.VGA was 640x480.  Since SVGA was backward compatible it could also display the lower resolution. In Flat panel tv's of today that have a VGA or (computer) connection are more than capable of displaying SVGA resolution.

Just a thought. The "S Video" started out as S-VHS. It's not the same critter as Super VGA.

As they used to say PCMCIA - People Can't Memorize Computer Industry Acronyms.

Hi. The best way to hook your computers display to your LCD screen will be to use the VGA input socket. If your video card can support both S-video input and VGA, you can use either one but, the VGA is best for optimal resolution. This is the easy way to do this. Step one, connect the VGA cable to the computers video card and then, run the other end of this same cable to the VGA input slot on the LCD screen.Step 2, next you will make sure that the LCD's input selection is selected to show what is being transferred from the CPU video card by using the input button on the lcd remote control. The lcd(your tv) should be on VGA or PC input signal. Step 3, now, you Will have to also make sure that your video card is set to transfer this signal as well by pulling up your video cards software window and switch to the proper options. once this is done, you should get a signal. Be sure to use the VGA input/output ports on both the lcd television and your cpu for optimal transfer of the video stream. Here is a pic of your back panel. use the input port labeled I for good PC input quality.

How do i fix when i hook up hdmi cord and the screen wont display and when i hook up vga it does but i want hdmi for my ps3?


You must have to make setting in your ps3 and Display device. Set the display device at auto option for input source. It may be set at VGA. that why you get output of VGA but it does not display output from ps3

Vga hook up


may need to tell the laptop in the screen resolution settings to display the image on the tv instead of the laptop. Right click on the empty desktop of the laptop and go to either propertie or screen resolution and then make sure that the computer can see that the tv is hooked up and that the image is showing on the tv instead of the laptop. You may also need to change the mode on the tv to vga.

I am trying to hook up a 26 inch viZio to my hip desktop utilizing the VGA cord. It won't come up? I am on the comp screen on the tv also.


Once you plug the VGA cable from the computer to the VGA port on the tv, get the remote for the TV and go to the Select Input function so that you can select PC or Computer as the input source. Then Reboot the Computer.

Once the computer reboots it will probably display on the tv. If not, Press and Hold the FN function key on the computer then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The correct key (F1 thru F12) will have LCD/CRT on it or it might have the icon of a display.
Once it is pressed the video should toggle each time you hit it from showing on the Computer only, TV only, both the TV and Computer.

I JUST CONNECTED THE PC TO TV WITH VGA TO RCA CABLE BUT PICTURE WON'T COME ON THE TV SCREEN


Make sure that you have the correct display mode selected. While many connections like a VGA to VGA connection will automatically detect, I don't think a VGA to RCA adapter will. Go to control panel/display and see if your computer has detected the second display.
Also make sure the RGB or RCA is selected as the input source on your TV.
Once these are both set correctly you should be in business!

The 1525has a a hdmi port which you can plug a hdmi cord into. This may not support the audio. the tv and pc should detect the new monitor automatically or you may have to toggle it by hitting F4 key.

Hook vga cord to hdtv and optiplex desk top get


Try a different display setting, for example, 1280 x 800 or 1024 x 768. Once you can see (computer) display, then move onto the best resolution which your display card support for your HDTV. Good luck..

(btw, if your dell has two vga sockets, get another vga cable. Then set your computer to a dual display mode, one for your computer and the other for HDTV. this way you will never lose your display.)

VGA MODE NOT SUPPORTED, usually will meanthat the resolution your laptop was sending to the monitor wasnt supported.

this can be fixed with it plugged in and using the laptop display. you shoudl be able to chenge display properties and apply a different resolution to each screen.


system not fully installed is an interesting one. does it do this all teh time when you reboot now? with or without the monitor connected?

Cant use TV as Computer display


If you can disable the blue screen via the tv menu you might see something happening behind that blue ,you might be able to figure it out from there, also try to connect as directly as possible (tv/computer) even if you have to physically move one or the other, that way you can eliminate possible problems. good luck

Pc and lcd tv


that's really easy. just plug in a VGA or DVI cord from the PC to the Sova TV (those are both regular cables that normally would go the computer monitor). then press the source button on the remote (not too fast, it takes a second to detect the signal), until you see VGA or DVI, and your computer screen should show up. use the display settings on your computer to get the best resolution on the tv. depending on your computer, you may have a program that can save different screen resolution profiles for you (since the Sova TV resolution and the computer's optimized resolution using a different screen (such as the built in screen on a laptop -- or a different monitor with better resolution than the Sova TV), this way you can easily toggle between settings depending on what monitor you use.
