SOURCE: LG 37LC7D Connect to VGA from a PC

Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.

Thanks for the help.

SOURCE: no picture when vga cable is connected

Most tvs can only handle a couple resolutions (ie 640x480) through the pc input. Even some HD tvs can only do 480. Check that your video is turned on and setup to the acceptable resolutions.

right click your desktop
go to properties
click settings tab
click on the 2nd monitor
make sure the box is clicked at the bottom
"extend my windows desktop onto this monitor"

SOURCE: pc connect to plasma tv pioneer pdp hd5070

(1) Have you selected VGA Output on the Laptop?
Usually there is a Function Key combination like Fn Plus F7 to send output to the external VGA Port, usually depicted by a monitor icon on the F7 Key
(2) If still no input to the TV, check the TV manual for the frequency of the VGA Input.
For Windows XP Sometimes you have to go into
Control Panel / Display / Settings /Advanced then Monitor Tab
& look at the Screen Refresh Rate.
Suggest you try lowering that value till it produces a signal.
Good Luck

Set the screen resolution, on the PC, to a low initial setting say 800x600 32bit, and also ensure your Video Out is set right either PAL or NTSC depending on what your TV receives. Make sure you have activated dual display "Extend windows desktop to here" under Video Properties, (Right Click Desktop)...and finally plug in to TV, turn on, and THEN boot up.

if you want to set up a dual tv monitor system using via pc as a source you will need a VGA splitter usually 2 or more output. now how are you going to connect the 2 monitor and PC to the VGA splitter. first make sure your tv monitor is supported by service input for PC unit. then prepare the accessories needed. the VGA splitter and VGA cable. vinceisaac_30.jpg vinceisaac_31.jpg sample image for VGA splitter VGA cable or connector how are you going to hook up the splitter and VGA cable to the tv monitor and PC
  • you need 3 vga connector and 1 splitter to connect a dual monitor system.
  • connect one end of the vga connector to the pc unit and the other end to the input port of splitter.
  • now the 2 remaining vga connector connect to the output of splitter either of the port, then the 2 end wire you must connect to the input port ( pc service port ) of the 2 tv monitor. make sure you set up the right input either with the remote or at the tv unit to recognized the pc source.

Connecting wire between pc to tv


Hi there,

Depending on what type of TV you have, connecting your PC to your TV shouldn't be very expensive. Most newer models of TVs come with a VGA input.

Your computer has a cable to go to the computer screen, this cable is known a s a VGA cable, it looks like this:

Your TV might have a VGA input which looks like this:

All you have to do is unplug your VGA cable from your computer screen and plug it in to your TV so your cable will go fro your computer to your TV instead of your computer to your screen.

If your TV doesn't have a VGA input, it will have an RCA input which looks like this:

You can buy a VGA to RCA cable which will allow you to connect your computer to your TV which looks like this:

PC TO TV


The TV will recognize any operating system. You can use a VGA cable to connect to the television if the TV has a vga port. Then select the PC input for the TV. If the connection is white and larger if may be a DVI connector. You will need a DVI cable in that case or a DVI to vga adapter.

Connecting Dell Inspiron 1501 to TV, Windows Vista


The PC card you have doesnt appear to work with that adaptor. Dell Has its own Svideo / Video output adaptors.

You need a converter not an adaptor. Try looking on Amazon for this: ITV-900 PC to TV Converter

Samsung LCD TV not receiving PC signal


Check your vga cable. Some cables have only 14 pins, some have all 15. The missing pin is pin 9, in the 15 pin cable it carries 5v from the graphics card to the screen. Without that 5v signal most LCD and Plasma television screens won't recognise a PC input. I had the same problem and only managed to fix it when my girlfriend swapped a cable over for me and as she did so glanced inside and said "it's got a bit missing" The cable that came with your PC most likely only has 14 ins as that is all a monitor screen needs.
You can buy a 15 pin cable at most PC or electronic shops, just check that isdoes have all 15 pins befiore you buy it. The cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones unless you are buying 20 foot cable. For 6 foot cable the cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones.
