Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My computer is hooked up to an HD flatscreen (Element) TV. When I'm watching a movie on my computer, every so often my monitor (Element TV) ''thinks'' theres no more signal and shuts off. This is a pain to have to get up and move the mouse like every 10 minutes or so to continue watching the movie. I thought this had to do with my screen saver so I changed the screen saver setting to every 120 minutes instead of every 5 or 10 minutes. Even with this change I still have the same problem. My Tv monitor automatically shuts off if theres no signal. Is there any way to change this setting on my TV or is it some setting in the computer I can change? Thanks. Please help

How do I hook up laptop to Toshiba TV to watch a movie on a USB flash drive?


If you have a movie on a USB, you might want to copy it to your computer first. The key to hooking a computer to any external monitor, in this case your TV, is connect them before turning on the computer with a VGA cable available at most box stores.

The problem may be the resolution. Your TV will run 1920x1080. You might try changing the resolution to that and then try connecting to TV again.

How to hook up rca 32in flatscreen to puter


The hookup is not hard just use the output from your PC VGA , Composite etc to the TV and make sure the right input is selected ont the TV . The tricky part is making sure your PC or laptop is 1 set to display to TV (goto your video settings on desktop) and 2 if you have a laptop most have a function button on top that switches from monitor to external monitor or to split to both.
