A lot of TVs only accept limite PC resolutions. Try 1028x768 60hz this normally works.

The Error message doesn't mean the TV or PC is not working, only that the signal is not compatible. try all resolutions until something works.

How to connect my dell inspiron 1501 laptop to my hdtv. am using a vga cable with rca out, to connect to the tv. i have tried everything but none works. if this can work please sent me step by step...


1 - the cable you are trying to use will not work - the RCA inputs in your tv can't accept the signal coming from the VGA. To connect the laptop to a tv the tv must have an VGA input, nothing else will work.
2 - When you start the laptop with an external device (such as an external monitor or tv) attached and turned on, the image may appear on either the laptop's display or the external device.
Press to switch the video image between the display only, the external device only, or the display and the external device simultaneously.

Make sure you have set the laptop's display properties to as low a resolution as possible (also make sure the screen refresh rate is 60 hertz) and turned it off before connecting it to the television. Turn the television on first and set to the correct input either hdmi 1 or 2. Then turn on the laptop. When it has booted up hold down the function key and the dual monitor key (either F5 or F8) for 15 seconds for an image to appear on the screen. When you have an image you can play around with increasing the laptop's resolution.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

Trying to connect my laptop to Hdtv with vga wire?


Ok, 14-pin is for really OLD VGA. Your cable will simply NOT work. Find a S-VGA cable (15-pin) and you are on your way to fame. By the way, make some room trashing that old cable.

Connect Laptop to TV


It depends on what kind of TV you have. If you have a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, it may have a VGA connection already installed. If that is the case, all you need is a standard VGA cable to connect from your notebook to your TV.

If you have a TV without a VGA connection you will need a scan converter to convert your signal from VGA to RCA or composite video signal. These can be purchased online or from electronics stores like Radio Shack. You plug your VGA connection from the computer to the scan converter, then RCA or composite video cables from the converter to the TV.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".

Unusable Signal


Hello Mike:

The issue that you are having is with your small signal board and it needs to be replaced, it sounds like the microprocessor on that board is getting locked up.
