Hook up of Viewsonic TV to my computer

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,

Doug

SOURCE: Hook computer to ILO tv

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..

SOURCE: Intel 865G drivers

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!

SOURCE: problem connecting DVI input of TV to DVI-D output of video card

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.

SOURCE: Can't display 1440x900?

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.

If you have the appropriate cable to connect the output port of the computer to the input port of the Flat Panel TV every thing will be OK. For optimum performance you might have to install the drivers for the replacement flat panel.

What dose it mean when screen says out of frequency


This error indicates that your video card resolution is set igher than the monitor can display. Try booting into safemode and changing the resolution.

Here is a link to the Gateway site spec page for that monitor.

http://support.gateway.com/s/MONITOR/7003943/700394318.shtml

The maximum resolution it will display is 1024 X 768 which is very low for current video cards, your card may not go that low. Check it if it does not go then you will need to get a new monitor that supports the resolution that your computer can put out.

No signal


If it is connected to a working/running machine that machine may have a video card problem. Try hooking the monitor up to another computer and see if it works there.
