You need to set your system to output to the port the TV is on.
If it is a laptop, there is an F key to change from LCD to LCD+VIDEO to VIDEO.
If it is a desktop you need to go into your display settings (control panel or rt clk desktop/properties or whatever system you have).

You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz

Monitor problem

Hi, sandjkroll, this kind of problem could be because of ur monitor or even because of the on board display  card on ur motherboard. To check ur monitor, u unplg display cable which goes to ur cpu and the power cable which goes to ur cpu. 
Them connect the power plug to mains, so no cable from the monitor should go to the CPU. Then u swithch on the the poower suply, and on the monitor. I
If ur monitor displays elongated screen still, and shows signal not found,and no display comes that means ur monitor needs to be send for service. and if there are no elongated screen and says no signal found, ur monitors fine, ur motherboad has a problem

I turned on my computer and the monitor displayed this message on the screen "going to sleep no input received". I checked the power cord and unplugged it, nothing. No lights are flashing or beeping sounds. The CPU is working just fine, anyone have any idea what to do

Dell E171FPb monitor turns on, but that's it

Hi Letneper,

Hope this will give you hints. Some monitors have standby mode or screen saver feature and or self test feature when not connected to video input of your PC or CPU. Except this problem did not occur at first use. You can turn this off like other monitors manually at OSD (on-screen display) settings if available. No more no less if it works fine with PC or CPU on then there's nothing to worry.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
