DVI TO HDMI, 640 GAME FORMAT

When I play my computer game Battlefield 2142, it goes to 640 resolution and the edges of the screen is cut off. This ocurs in may games.
The normal res (1216x676) looks ok in windows because I resized it in the NVDIA software.
Is this a problem with the TV, the Vidoe card, or something else?

    From personaly experience this television seems to get confused with the dvi to hdmi. I realize its in the manual and went to an authorized service center to get the technical aspect of the television and we did a an S-video cable to S-video from an NVIDIA vid card to the television and it was perfect. The guy gave me a good reason but it sucked that the depiction was shown in the manual.

My monitor(HPL1950) was working good until i unplugged it to play on PS3. When i connected the monitor to my PS3 with HDMI it showed black screen. There is photo showing the screen. Help please


If your cennecting using an hdmi to dvi then you might want to check that your ps3 is only sending video and not video and sound as not all screens have a dvi port that supports sound and dvi. Also it could just be a resolution issue. Try having the resolution of your ps3 to 720 or possibly lower and see what happens. Then if all good work your way up to find what your monitor can handle.

How do I get my PS4 to play via NEC NP310 Projector (it has no HDMI input)?


Remember, that a DVI and a DVI-D are different cords. DVI-D carries sound just like the HDMI. One possible solution is to try a HDMI-RCA adapter. You will see a reduction in resolution though.

Have Dell Dimension 2400 and wanting to connect to Emerson LD195EMX.. attach to PC Monitor connection but no scrren comes up/// WHat else can I do?


Is the PC monitor connection - a DVI or DVI-I connection a 15-pin VGA connection an RCA video connection?
Have you set the television input to match the connector used on the TV?
The display resolution on your computer may not be set to a resolution your TV can handle. There is no point trying to put a 1280 by 800 signal into a VGA connector. Start with 640 by 480. However, this will not give you the high resolution you have come to expect from your PC's monitor.
This set also has HDMI input. If your computer has a DVI or DVI-I output, you can buy an adapter that will connect to that HDMI input. Note that this will only handle the video portion of the output from your computer and you will have to use analog connections for the sound and figure out which TV menu input selections allow high definition video with analog sound (not all sets can do this).
Note that LED TVs are not like CRT TVs where an electron beam can put a dot anywhere on the screen. An LED TV has fixed resolution modes.
It might be necessary to use a software product like "PowerStrip" to create a custom resolution mode that will show a high resolution image that will fill the screen of your TV. I wound up using 1352 x 648 to give a full screen image on my LED TV using the HDMI input. ("Your mileage may vary.")
There is a lot more to connecting a high resolution computer display to an LED TV than just plugging it into the "PC Input".

Edge of the screen is cut off when using PS3/Xbox360/Computer


Well you did not included the gaming system so its impossable to diagnose but try to go into the game system video properties and set the resolution. if its a older gaming unit like beyond old like nintendo 64 then I am stunned you may have to set you TV to streach the sceen as its not to wide screen formats. If its like a Xbox360 you can order a special cable to go HD and this will summerized this problem do not use HD mode if you not using a HD cable set it for standard resoultion on your TV..

Computer restarts


the only time my computer kept restarting in gameplay i thought it was a directx issue or graphics card driver issue, it actually turned out to be an out of date soundcard driver that was causing mine to crash. Have you check every driver is up to date?

Cannot play video games downloaded


I was getting the same problem with my lcd tv. I was using a DVI to hdmi cable to connect the pc to the tv. I switched to a vga cable and I was able to finally get into the game. Once you get into the game make sure you change all the video settings to be compatible with your tv i.e. resolution for a 720p set should be 1366x768 on the game resolution, and you should also change the refresh rate to 60hz in the game if that is the max. on your tv.

Once you do this, you can then put your hdmi cable back in and get into the game. Every game I install I have to first run using the vga cable, and then switch to HDMI.

I think my video card wont dump its cache


Have you tried un-installing and re-installing the game? EA has posted instructions for doing so on their support website. I've pasted the website link and instructions for doing so below. I've had to un-install and re-install at least six times myself, and have seen exactly the error that you have described occur twice. I hate this game for the crashes that occur regularly. My system plays Crysis fine, with no crashes, but crashes regularly from 2142. I wish that for once and for all EA would fix this game. It is the best battle simulation in the world, IMHO.

High Ping When playing Battlefield 2142 Online


There are a lot of factors that can affect ping rates. Server location, server load, local internet load, and your computer and network setup. The server you access for Battlefield may be too far from you. Try typing "ping 69.147.114.210", at the command prompt,(usually found in "All Programs/Accessories") also without the quotes. You should get numbers in the 40-60ms range. (thats Yahoo.com by the way), then put in the IP number of the Battlefield server. Any returned numbers under 100ms are ok, if your getting higher numbers, check the Battlefield forums to see if there is a server closer to where your located. If your getting numbers over 250-300ms at both sites, then download Lavasofts Adaware SE which is free, and Spybot Search & Destroy, also free and run them both, (once a week after as well) they will remove spyware and adware from your computer. There is a possibility that spyware or adware is using network resources.
