Question about Computers & Internet
I have a three year old gateway pc and i would like to connect it to my sharp aquos hdtv. i tried a s-video cable but there is no image on the tv.
You need to go into the display settings of your computer once the cable is connected and change it to a dual-monitor setup. I'm going to assume you have windows 98/xp, you can find the display settings in your control panel under the title of "display". it'll be under the last tab of the window called "settings".
Keep it in mind, in reality there are a ton of ways to run two monitors. Chances are the one that your going to find easily is to "extend" your desktop onto your tv, making them both run as one screen. Hopefully that doesn't happen to you (you'll probably find it extremely annoying). Also, some video players wont let you play videos on your TV because their worried that your going to copy the video onto vhs.
The display on your tv will be blurry with s-video, and you wont be able to read text easily (hd-tvs are different if your video card is new enough to use the hd-tvs features, and/or your hd-tv can run computer displays. You can purchase a computer monitor to hd-tv cable online or at computer stores) but videos and pictures will look good. And if you have problems and you accidentally switch your display to the tv and your monitor is off, turn off the computer and unplug the s-video, it should go back to normal although it may happen if you put the s-vid cable back into the pc.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I have lots of experience doing this.

I have a linux laptop connected to the TV via a vga cable (15 pin male to male) and it works, it's just like a bigger lcd. Only some videos don't work on the TV eventhough it's displaying on the laptop.

I have one.
DVI from TV to PC
On your tv remote, select input..it's usually something like
one through 5..TaDaaaaa..lol
Make sure your pc is on when you select input, but make
sure it's off when you connect it to everyhting, then power up, no need to cause a spark. ;)
