Question about Televison & Video
I have an Akai LCT 2070 TV, which works fine. I recently got a new computer and I want to use the tv for my computer monitor. There is a jack for a VGA cable on the tv, to run the monitor cable from the computer. The problem is, the tv doesn't have enough resolution for Windows 8 to run. The monitor has maximum 800 x 600 resolution, and Windows 8 needs something like 1024. Is there a way I can increase the resolution on the Akai so it will work with Windows 8?

Heres the dealyo.
Click start button
Click control panel
adjust screen resolution (probably have to go down) until the tv displays your computer
if this did not work, you will have to adjust bit rate from 32 to 16. Fiddle with the settings until the magic happens.
You will not get any sound unless you use an audio jack plugged into t.v.

Most failures on this TV are due to defective power supplies. If the TV does not turn ON, you should replace the power supply.
Check this website to buy the power supply adapter and hopefully that should fix the TV.

Press and hold Fn key, and then look at the F1-F10 keys.. Most likely it is F7, and has a picture like a computer screen.
So, press and hold Fn key, and then press F7 (or whatever key it is for your laptop). This will change your "presentation" settings, and thus switch back and forth from laptop screen, laptop screen + external screen (TV), just external screen (TV).
If this doesn't work as you expect, just try:
Instructions for Windows XP:
Open the Display Properties window by:
Start -> Run -> %windir%\system32\control.exe desk.cpl,@0,3
(this is the same window where you can change screen resolution).
There you will see two or more "screens", labeled: 1, 2, 3.
Click on "1", and you'll see:
[X] Use this device as the primary monitor
[X[ Extent Windows desktop onto this monitor
Click on "2", this is your TV.. Mark
[X] Extent Windows desktop onto this monitor
Then change the resolution to 800x600.
=> now your TV should start showing you a picture.
You can move your mouse between the laptop screen and the TV screen.
If you want just the TV, you can make "2" to be your primary monitor, by clicking on [X] Use this device as the primary monitor.
