Need to set resolution and refresh rate on the Mac before plugging in to the TV set - had this same problem with a WinVista machine. According to the documentation, the only supported resolutions are:

640x480 60Hz
800x600 56Hz
800x600 60Hz
1024x768 60Hz
1280x1024 60Hz
1280x768 60Hz
1366x768 60Hz

In all fairness, I cannot get the unit to run in 1366x768, though - get out of range. 1360x768 seems to work OK though. Only real problem with the VGA input is that regular text mode on a video card (more of an issue on Windows machines) does not work.

It means your PC video resolution setting is too high for this monitor to display.
You need to set the resolution to 1024 x 768 @60Hz. Bootup in safe mode (hit f8 during bootup) select VGA support, rest the resolution to 1024 x 768 @60Hz, reboot.

Akai 32LW7 _connection to Laptop


Hi,

I believe that you have connected it correctly since the Windows log-on is displayed. It may be that the Screen Resolution of your desktop is a bit high and therefore would have to be lowered to match the capacity of the Akai 32LW7. Pls try 1366 x 768 pixels or lower. You could also lower the laptop's screen refresh rate. Additionally, some laptops have to be toggled to activate external VGA by pressing Fn + F? keys to cycle through LCD, LCD + external, External only. The F? key would be the one with the monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Monitor outputs from PCs can be very fustrating. First of all, is the PC a laptop? If so most of them do not have a dual monitor capability for supporting an external monitor, or if they do it can be difficult to get it to use both monitors at the same time. Try updating the drivers for the video board. Most of them are sold with drivers that are outdated.
