Question about Televison & Video
I have a gateway 700 series with a FPD 1810 flat monitor. It has a NVDIA GeForce Ti4200 video card with 15 pin VGa and 24 pin DVI outputs to monitor.
I changed the monitor to a View Sonic N2635W TV with VGA input and HDMI input. View Sonic resolutions will support 1280x768 (WXGA). When using VGA input, I can only get a picture from the computer onto the view sonicTV using 800 x 600 resolution from computer.
When connection of DVI output from computer to HDMI input, I get "no signal" prompt on TV. When hooked up to VGA imput at anything above 800 x 600 resolution from computer, I get "not supported" prompt on TV.
When the computer reboots, it goes back to the highest resolution resulting in that I have to hook up my old monitor in order to change the resolution out of the computer to get a picture on the view sonic.
Obviously, I would like to have the very best resolution connection from computer to the TV. Also, I do not want to have to hook up my old monitor every time the computer has to reboot. What are your suggestions to solve my delima?
I have both DVI to HDMI and VGA connection cords.
Thanks for any help,

The best way is to buy a graphics card with HDMI output. This will dsplay your PCs desktop the way it's supposed to look, and will appear much sharper and clearer than using vga, as the output is digital to begin with. If you don't need to play the latest games, you get get one for around $30. Add a wireless mouse and keyboard and you'll be able to control everything from your armchair. You can also then use your PC to download and watch films etc from the internet..

Have you tried downloading the newest most up-to-date drivers availiable? If not I would try that first.
If that fails to work, I would check and see if there are any bios updates as the video card is part of the motherboard. However, I would think that since it works without the drivers, it would be a driver issue, not bios. When you have the drivers installed, does the video show up while booting and then fail in Windows?
You may also be hitting a range or resolution that is not supported by your TV. That being said, you could check your TVs owner manual for supported modes. If you do not have your owners manual, try setting the video card at some different resolutions with a monitor, shut down, plug back into the tv, and then restart the computer. If you find one that works, great!

For error code 0122, Don't play the movie or load your movie program until you have the resolution you want and have it set to display only on the hdtv . You do this by going to control panel, selecting "adjust common used mobility settings", and then clicking on "connect display. A pop-up will come up and give you the option to display only on the external display. Pick that. The thing that sucks is if you have the display set to 1920 x 1080, you can't see everything on your desktop when trying to view it on the tv.

I have same problem (power light is on, and I have sound, but no picture ) and found that a small capacitor on back of power supply is blown. Seems to be common problem. But viewsonic doesnt stock. Part number is b-00005352 and im trying to find one too

I have a different LCD TV and video card, but I have the same issue.
To work around it, I have to toggle to make it the primary output. It will not work if set to extended, or set to both screens.
