    Need to know lots more info What was done prior to this problem, Are you saying there is no video at all, not even the boot up bios check screen. If no video at all, try remove / replace ram chips (If you know how) if that fails, suspect video card fault.

First, you have to know if there's a missing device driver (sound, display, etc)from your laptop to view all of them: from your desktop (using Windows XP) right click on My Computer icon choose Properties, Go to Hardware tab click Device Manager, you'll find a ( ? ) mark for the missing device, the solution is to install your Display Adapter driver if you are looking for a video controller, so you should have your CD driver for your laptop. in HP Laptops you can download drivers from www.hp.com, from Dell Laptops www.dell.com/home/laptops,

Would appreciate any advice on connecting cable etc. to connect my Compter and TV to display video/film downloads.s


The easiest connection is converting to VGA and using a standard headphone port-to-audio in. Your video out from the laptop varies by model, which isn't included here.

It will most likely be mini-VGA or mini-DVI

My gateway says "Check cable connection!PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key". What should I do?


Sounds like the hard drive isn't getting power,the data cable to the drive isn't connected,or the drive controller on the motherboard is toast(I'm a novice tinkerer,not an expert).

My Acer Aspire 4730Z has a problem: the right hanh part of the lcd does display anything ...its black {thumb length horizontally from top to bottom is always black}...what should i do??


This is most likely an issue with the screen itself. If the laptop is under a year old or still covered by some kind of extended warranty, the only option would be to get it repaired. If it isn't, then you have two options: 1. You can take it apart and attempt to replug the video cable back in and ensure it's making a complete connection or 2. You can use an external monitor with the laptop. Sadly, there isn't any easy option.

Upgrade video card or increase video memory on a gateway NV53a


Unfortunately, there isn't any way to increase the video performance of this model. Only very few laptops have interchangeable video cards and this isn't one of them, sadly. Video RAM can sometimes be increased in the BIOS by hitting F2 when the computer is first starting up (during the Gateway screen) and fiddling around with that, but it's probably a long shot because usually only enthusiast laptops have that function.

Hi how can i connect from my pc's s-video socket to a projector which has a jack socket? I have all the right cables I've been told to press fn f4 but my pc doesn't have fn


If it's a laptop, they've usually got a vga connector on the rear panel which you can use to connect to an external monitor...or a projector if it's got the same (vga) connector. If your projector only has a jack socket, then that's not a standard connector for a video input and maybe you should consult your projector's user guide for clarification of the connectors (are you sure your jack socket isn't actually a phono or RCA socket? if it is, then your laptop video output signal probably isn't compatible with the projector as there's no way to make s-video output feed anything other than a s-video input (different signal levels and standards) Regards, nicam49

Want to know how to connect acer 3680 to tv


It depends on your TV

If your tv has a Computer VGA connection you can directly connect the VGA connector from the left side of the laptop to the connector on the tv

If there isn't then you could go buy a S-Video to RCA cable at radioshack and connect the S-Video port on the laptop to a video in connection on the TV

For sound you can connect the speaker/headphone jack on the laptop to the tv using a cable either going direct from 8mm to 8mm or from 8mm to RCA...either can be found at radioshack

Let me know if you need anything else!!

there is a socket in your laptop in a D shape with 15 pin. Connect a PC monitor in that terminal and turn on your laptop if you can see you desktop on that monitor then your video card isn't working or your lcd screen isn´t working anymore.

Playing a downloaded film with HDMI cable to my TV set Sony Bravia, after 10 minutes the colour on tv set disappear or change. Do I need a certain drive on my computer for HDMI


If it was playing the video fine initially, there should be no reason for that to change. Most likely the video card on the laptop is overheating or dying, which results in the change in colors. I fix laptops at my computer repair shop, and most are HP Pavilion DV6000 and DV9000, and they are notorious for having bad video chips on the motherboards. If it is still under warranty I would back up your data from the hard drive then send it in to HP to have fixed or replaced. If it isn't under warranty I would try to connect your tv using just a VGA cable, and see if the same thing happens. If it does, you have a bad video card. If it doesn't happen then you may still have a bad video card, it's just that the VGA signal isn't as high powered/high resolution so your card doesn't get pushed hard enough to malfunction. Try the VGA cable and let me know how it works.

Is it ok to charge my controller on laptop/pc


There isn;t a reason why you shouldn't charge using a laptop/pc, did a bit of resaearch and many people claim to be charging thier pads via a pc's usb,
I tried it on mine and it didn't work, it recognised the PS3 pad and installed it as a game controller, which was pretty cool but it wouldn't charge, haven't tried it on my mac yet . If it doesn't work first time try a diff. usb port on your laptop pc, as sometimes its certain usb ports on your system that carry enough juice to power a device
