Try adjusting the screen resolution by right clicking on an open spot, going to properties and clicking on settings. Change the screen resolution to 1024x768 or better.

    the "gap" around the edge is what happens when you take a 'normal" video display and run it on a HD monitor or tv.

Connect aspire v5-552p to tv


It depends on the ports the computer and the TV have
If both have VGA (blue) use a VGA to VGA cable.
You can also use an S-Video-to-S-Video cable
If both have DVI, use a DVI-toDVI cable.
If both have HDMI use an HDMI-to-HDMI cable.

Other possibilities are combinations of the various modes above VGA-to-DVI, VGA-to-HDMI, VGA-to-S-Video, etc.
VGA-To-D

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

How do i set up multi screen on my 42" HDTV Insignia


You may use an HDMI / DVI cable to connect to your computer. Next if you have windows 7 hold your windows key and hit the letter "P" (for projector) this will allow you to bring on the multi-montior feature on your computer. Make sure to select the option that says EXTEND. Please note that when connecting a DVI device you must use the HDMI IN1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV. you cannot use HDMI In 2.

1. Turn off your TV and all connected equipment.
2. Connect an HDMI/DVI cable or DI-HDMI adapter between the HDMI in 1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV and DVI OUT jack on the DVI device.
3. Connect an audio cable between the DVI audio IN jacks on the back of your tv and the DVI audio jack on the dvi device.
turn on the tv then turn on the dvi device.

Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

I cant connect my acer aspire 5810 tg with my samsung lcd tv.the tv say "NO SIGNAL"


So here's a quick walk-through of all the methods that I know (if you know any more, please comment) to connect a laptop or PC to your TV:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You'll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC's are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won't find a VGA port on regular TV's though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with "digital" being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here's a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Hope this helps someone! If you have any other ideas or suggestions, please feel free to comment!!! Thanks!

Cant get hdmi to work


What device are you connecting to the TV? Are you using an HDMI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI cable (or another adapter in the cable or between the cables)?

Try using a different cable. Try connecting the source device to another TV. Basically, you want to see whether the TV's HDMI input is bad, the device output is not active, or if the cable is bad (or an adapter attached to the cable is bad). Adapters are likely failure points. If you are using a DVI to HDMI cable, check your cable and device specs. Single-link and dual-link DVI are different and not interchangeable when attached to an HDMI cable end.

I hope this helps.

(some computers (esp. laptops) will have external video ports turned off by default and you need to turn them on before you try to send the output to an external monitor (TV).)

Connecting to HD TV


This TV has no HDMI input socket. It Has a DVI input socket. Therefore you will require an HDMI to DVI converter adapter or an HDMI to DVI cable. The DVI is video only so you will require audio cables from your Sky box (Audio L and R ) which will connect to the back left of your TV (Audio L/R sockets next to the s-video and component video connectors)

Dell w3000 & PS3


This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.
