Connected a dell dimension 1100 to tv how do i get audio

Assuming you are using the integrated video card there should be a audio port on the tv near the VGA port. You will have to a cable with 1/8 mini stereo jacks to plug into the pc and the TV.

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....

Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA

  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

No video when powered on

try to check if the vga cable is properly set. if your using an expansion card try connecting the vga cable to the built-in video card if no go try to check if you have a beeping sound coming from your cpu. if you hear a beeping sound you can try and open the chassis and reset the memory module and also check the video card if it is set properly. if you need help in opening the chassis pls. refer to your user's manual or visit cautions applies

Dell pc to tv hook up

Most video cards on computers output progressive scan, and your flat screen tv may be interlaced. This would cause the horizontal hold to keep rolling.

Conncting pc to tv

You would need specfic hardware on your computer and your tv to do so. It really depends on what video card your computer has right now, and what inputs your tv has.

To explain it a bit further, most computers have 1 of the (3) following types of outputs in the back. It can be VGA, DVI, or SVIDEO. To see a picture of the connections for refrence, check out this PICTURE

Now lets say you have the S-VIDEO OUTPUT on your computer, then you would need to have an S-VIDEO INPUT on your TV. You would simply get an S-VIDEO cable, hook one end to the PC, the other to the TV.

The same would go for VGA and DVI.

At this point, the best thing to do is this...figure out what type of INPUT you have on your TV at this time. Next look at your computer and see which OUTPUT you have....if they do not match, you would have to buy a video card for the computer that matches the INPUT for your TV. A good place to buy video cards is here: Website

Sorry if this was a bit confusing, like I said it is very specfic to the hardware you have. If you have ANY question at all please feel free to ask further!

No 9 pin video socket

Most video cards use a 15 pin VGA connector.

There is also a 9 pin VGA connector, but they are a lot less common - I'm guessing this is what you have.

Is the video cable hard-wired into your monitor or is it connected via a plug? If it's a plug, is that a 15 or 9 pin? If it's a 15 pin, then all you need to do is buy a new 15-15pin VGA cable.

If it's hard-wired, you'll need to buy some sort of adapter. These are available and don't cost much either, but you might need to try a more specialist computer store to find one.

Hope this helps!
