Trying to get picture from laptop on tv

Hello. We are not very computer savvy. We bought a cable that connects to our laptop and tv but the picture only comes through when the computer boots up and shows the windows logo, Is there a setting that needs to be changed. We have an acer laptop and a dynex monitor replacement cable? Thank you for taking the time to help

Sincerely, confused :(

Re: trying to get picture from laptop on tv

First enter in the laptop setup, and find the video option, there you will have something like this:
onboard, extern, both (choose both)
turn off the tv.
boot up windows, right click desktop, properties, choose configuration tab, there wil be two screen, one for monitor the other for tv.
on tv side choose 640x480 (you can try higher resolutions later).
reboot and turn on tv.

worked here.

Honestly, sounds like theres either a connection problem between the monitor and the motherboard, or the video card died. On the rear of a laptop, theres a serial port (serial meaning a rectangular shape with a bunch of pin holes in it), its used to connect a laptop to an actual computer monitor. Attempt to do this. Its plug and play, meaning it should just work. If you still get no picture on the other monitor, its probably your video card, Look into getting a new one for your pcimia slot (which is the slot located on the side of your computer, which alot of the times, a wireless card is in it). If it DOES show up on the monitor, it may be a faulty connection with the monitor to montherboard...which honestly, I'd recommend letting someone who knows what they are doing, take it apart and make sure... Cus laptops are tricky and delicate to take apart and check yourself.

If its a laptop, odds are, the screen is an LCD, and MOST LCD screens have a half life of at least 20 years... So I'd check the connection before id call it the monitors problem >.< Hope this helps.

Installation for canon pixma ip 1500

Hey you again, you rated me yesterday Inappropriate. Actually, fixya expert afraid to give some solution because you will rated us Inappropriate even the problem is came from you where you was not clearly stated your problem.

Ok, but anyway I am still to help you, Is it the problem goes to the manual installation you need or the driver instead?

Printers used to be the bugbear of computer users. They were difficult to set up and ornery in operation. That's no longer the case and it's likely you'll have no problems getting your printer up and running. This is particularly the case if your printer comes packaged with your computer system or if you stick to well-known brands such as Hewlett-Packard, Epson, Lexmark and Canon.
Connecting a printer involves four steps:
  1. Unpacking your printer, removing any packaging material and installing the ink or toner cartridge. Refer to your printer's instructions to guide you.
  2. Connecting the printer cable to the printer and to the back of your computer.
  3. Connecting the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  4. Installing the printer driver and any additional software. The printer driver is a piece of software that tells your computer how to interact with your printer.
If your printer comes as part of your system, you may find that its driver is already installed. In that case, all you'll need to do is unpack it, connect the printer cable and power cord and switch on your computer.
geekgirl.tip: Get a cable One word of warning: Make sure you purchase a printer cable! Often, this is not included in your computer system, despite it being an essential item. You'll need the correct type of cable for your printer: If it's a USB-enabled printer, you need a USB cable (note, the new USB 2 cables work with older USB 1 printers, too; so if in doubt, get a USB 2 cable); if it's a parallel printer, you'll need a parallel cable.
Make sure you get a cable long enough to reach easily from your printer to your computer. However, you should avoid cables longer than 10', because long cables can cause problems with communication between printer and computer. Try to position your printer so a 6' (or shorter) cable can make the connection.
Follow the wizard If your printer's software has not been pre-installed, read any installation instructions that accompany your printer and follow those instructions. If no instructions are provided, follow this procedure:
(Note: This procedure applies to printers which use a parallel connection. If your printer uses a USB connection, you should connect it while Windows is running and it will be recognised.)
  1. Make sure you have your original Windows CD-ROM handy. You may need it.
  2. Switch the computer off.
  3. Connect the parallel printer cable to your computer.
  4. Connect the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  5. Switch on the printer and the computer.
  6. In most cases, Windows will detect that you've attached a new hardware device and it will launch the Add Hardware Wizard and attempt to search for the appropriate software. If the wizard doesn't launch and Windows appears to ignore your printer, you can launch the Add Printer wizard yourself by clicking the Start button, selecting Control Panel, clicking Printers And Other Hardware, and then clicking Add Printer.
  7. If the printer is directly connected to your computer, select the Local Printer Attached To This Computer option. If you will be connecting to the printer via a network connection, select the Network Printer option, then click Next.
  8. The wizard will first try to search for any Plug and Play devices (these are components that should, by rights, automatically notify Windows when they're first connected). If the wizard discovers your printer, it will display further instructions to complete the installation. You may need to restart your system to finish.
