The DVI cable provide higher resolution signals than a standard VGA cable. You can get a DVI to VGA converter at electronic stores such as Radio Shack or best buy etc. The monitor will work fine with the adapter connected to it.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF DVI-HDTV CABLE CONNECTIONS AND WHAT TYPE OF PICTURE DO I GET


The DVI cable was the early HDMI cable . all later sets have the HDMI port . when you had it hooked to a DVI source did you select that port with the remote ? if it did not function the port may be damaged . as to picture it should give you a HD quality picture that your cable box is broadcasting .

DVI to HDMI


HDMI and DVI use the same encoding scheme for video purposes- the only difference is HDMI can carry audio signals and therefore have different connectors- so it is not like the lack of a picture signal is because you are using two different cables (HDMI and DVI). In theory the DVI to HDMI adapter should work.
Is there a possibility that the adapter is defective? Any bent or missing pins?
How long are the cables? If they are of poor quality, a digital signal can be lost at 20 feet. Again, in theory.
The only other thing I can thing of, off the top of my head is to ask, did you change the input selection on your t.v.'s display screen to go from the input source that you get your t.v stations from... to the input source of the Play Station?

Plugged in my emachine LE1938 to my dell without the DVI cable, screen displays 'no signal'. Shouldn't the monitor work without the DVI cable?


The DVI cable transports the display signal from the video card to the monitor.

I think what Ron is asking is if you used a different cable to connect the monitor to the computer. (I'm assuming you used an old 15 pin monitor cable or whatever those old cables were?)

Without getting into your BIOS:

So on your computer, you probably have an onboard video card (a video card built into the motherboard itself), and a dedicated video card (probably where you're seeing the DVI out).

It may be possible that you have the on board video card (with the traditional connection) disabled, when the dedicated video card is plugged in.

This isn't rocket science, so don't worry. Phillips head screwdriver is all you need.

Pull the side panel off your computer (assuming it's a tower... if not, it's the top panel). Once you have it off, you'll see that video card plugged into a slot on the motherboard, with 1 phillips head screw holding it in place (inside, near the back, where the DVI port is).

Pull the screw, and the video card should come out. From there, the BIOS should recognize your card is missing, and thus revert to using the onboard video card.

Won't display 1920x1080


I think you could have loaded the driver for a different model with 16:10 aspect ratio. Uninstall that driver.

Can you connect using the DVI port - get a DVI cable if your computer has a DVI port. If your computer has HDMI get a HDMI-DVI cable. DVI port will display max resolution - even without driver.

Be patient. The alpha directories are slow to load.

DVI connectors can be adapted to HDMI or component video.

"Web search "dvi to component adapter" "dvi to hdmi adapter"

Your PC's video and display controls will determine how all that works.

I use attached the pc on tv but i didi not here any sound please tell me sound pin cable attached the tv?


Hi sahazada pak,
As i know, TV set not support sound from PC input.
If you want here sound and still working with PC, you should use HDMI or DVI input from your PC out. HDMI has support image and sound in one cable. DVI only image without sound. if you use DVI , sound pc should connected to audio in.
Good luck.

How do i connect my compaq pc to tv


Without the model number comptuer, I cannot verify what outputs your comptuer has. Without this, I will provide the various ways a PC can be connected to a TV.

1. Use a VGA to DVI adapter (HD-15 pin to DVI). Use either a standard VGA montor extension cable (cheaper) or a DVI extension cable (more expensive) to make the connection

2. If you computer has a DVI output, use a DVI extension cable only

3. If your computer has HDMI output - use a HDMI to DVI adapter and either a HDMI or DVI extension cable.

In all 3 cases, you will probably need to go to the comptuer's Display Properties and adjust the screen size so it looks OK on your TV (go to the Control Panel - find Display) and adjust the screen resolution to match the format of your TV.

One note - when purchasing DVI cables, understand that there are 3 types - DVI-D (digital), DVI-A (analog) and DVI-I (digital and analog) and that the pin outs are different. Be sure to check your the owners manual of your TV to find which connection it needs.

Here is a good reference for DVI types

Digital not working


The latter part of this post seems to confirm that the problem is inside the monitor, probably a failure on the signal / video board. You might also look for damage to one of the connectors. Otherwise, if your manual shows some settings or a rest, that might be the issue. But the fact that the self-test does not work leads me to believe that the unit needs a new a signal / video board.
