I am hooking up my pc to 2 tv's + my monitor. Is there a graphics card out there that has 2 hdmi outputs (with audio) and a dvi/vga output for my monitor? -OR- Is it possible to just get a graphics card with a single hdmi, and use a splitter to go to the tv's? Both tvs are the same size, resolution, brand and model.

I am having a Problem with my video card not letting me run an addition monitor off the vga output on the motherboard. I know it works because I can go to the bios and change it and it works but they want...


When using a PCI or PCI-E graphics card, it will disable your standard VGA output port because the up-dated graphics card and your factory VGA port require different display drivers. Usually, the drivers are conflicting and will make your system unstable and cause it to crash. In short, you can't use both at the same time. I have a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card installed on my PC and it too has disabled my standard VGA port. If you are trying to use more than one monitor, you have to install a graphics card that supports a multiple display output. The graphics card will either have 2 VGA ports, 2 DVI-D ports or 2 HDMI ports or even any combination of the 3. My card, for example, has 1 VGA, 1 DVI-D & 1 HDMI. I can run up to 3 monitors at a time via my graphics card, but I cannot run a 4th monitor from my factory VGA port. My graphics card uses ATI/AMD drivers while my VGA port requires the use of Nvidia drivers.
I hope that you find this useful.

How to Connect PC to HDMI TV Step 1 Turn your...


How to Connect PC to HDMI TV
  1. Step 1 Turn your computer off, and turn it around to view the rear of the unit. Find the cable that comes from the computer's monitor, and follow it to the back of the PC. The cable will be plugged into the output of the video card, which will be either a 15-pin VGA port or a 29-pin DVI port. If you are fortunate, there will be a second port directly next to it, of either the DVI or VGA variety. On the newest machines, you may even find a regular HDMI port on the card.
  2. Step 2 Choose the connection for video output. If your computer has an HDMI port, you can simply connect an HDMI cord of the correct length between the computer and the TV. Otherwise, you will need to make a few decisions. If your computer has only a single video output, and it will not be used solely with the television, you may want to invest in a new video card. Purchase one with either a DVI or an HDMI output, and install it in an available slot, according the instructions included with it. If you intend to use the VGA output on a single-output or dual-output card to drive the HDMI display, then a special device will be needed to convert between the formats, and the price of the converter is actually about the same price as an entry-level video card that will be easier to use with your TV. In that case, it may be a wise idea to upgrade the card in order to obtain a DVI or HDMI port. However, if your chosen output port is of the DVI variety, an inexpensive DVI to HDMI cable can be purchased to convert your computer's output into the proper HDMI input for your TV.
  3. Step 3 Connect the HDMI cable from your television to your computer. Install the correct adapter or converter for your computer, if necessary. Unless your computer has HDMI output, cords will also need to be connected from the sound card output to the HDMI video cable or adapter, because HDMI carries both video and audio signals.
  4. Step 4 Boot your PC, and configure the new display, by selecting "Control Panel" from the "Start" Menu. Then double-click the "Display" icon and click the "Settings" tab. The manual for your HDMI TV will list the screen resolutions it supports, along with the refresh rates. Configure the resolution in the "Settings" tab, and then click the "Advanced" button to set the refresh rate. If you are using the HDMI TV as the second monitor, you will also have to configure how it is used by Windows, according to the instructions pertaining to your video card. Most cards offer a "Clone" or "Mirror" mode, where both screens display the same content. Alternately, the "Extended Desktop" mode can be used, in which each monitor will operate independently.
  5. Step 5 Reboot your PC to apply the changes, if necessary, and prepare to relax on your couch and watch your movies on the big-screen HDMI TV.

How to connect asus p1801-t to tv ?


This PC is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card. This means if your TV has an HDMI input connector you can directly connect the pc to the Tv with an HDMI cable and select the corresponding graphics monitor connection in the Display properties. Alternatively if your tv has only got a VGA input that can also be used from the PC and you can connect the speaker or headphone audio output to the audio input of the TV with a suitable 3.5 headphone to RCA adapter.

Dear civetscat,

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

I have research these converters/adapters before that can convert from the DVI port on the video card to an HDMI source. They are very exspensive for the type that truely work, and the cheap ones provide terrible graphics. Your best bet, is to research both the adapter and a replacement video card for your PC that will have the HDMI and VGA outputs you seek.
I have provided links to both below, from a site call newegg.com

Adapter/Converter: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=DVI+to+HDMI+converter

Replacement video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161308

Happy hunting and have a great day!

I have an Acer Monitor X223w - is it capable of hooking up as a douple monitor to one computer?


Any monitor can be used as the second monitor for a computer. However, your computer's graphics card must have two outputs. Some simpler graphics cards, most on-board video chipsets and all laptops *do not have* two outputs. Please check the back of your computer for two VGA outputs, or one VGA and one DVI output (you can use it by connecting a DVI cable to your monitor, or by plugging in a DVI to VGA adapter).
If your graphics card does not have two outputs, or if your computer uses an on-board video chipset, you can buy another graphics card to replace the one you're using.

Well i thinking about hooking my t.v. to computer with out unhooking computer screen. i need to know were to plug in the t.v.


This will only work if you have a graphics card with two outputs; if you do, they will be right next to eachother, and will be a s-video (small round) VGA (blue) DVI (white) or HDMI (trapezoid).

Hi,

You may have a couple of problems here, with you saying it`s a gaming PC it most likely has a graphics card installed which will likely only have outputs for DVI or HDMI, VGA is not usually supported on newer cards. What you need to look for is on the back of the PC where you are plugging in your monitor are you inserting the plug vertically, i.e. straight up and down? if so this means you are connecting to the motherboards onboard graphics which will be disabled if you have a graphics card. If you are using a VGA monitor then most likely it is a blue plug on the board you are plugging into, if you have a graphics card then the most common outputs are what is called DVI which is a slightely bigger white plug. You need to look slightly lower down from the plug you are connecting to and see if there are one or two DVI sockets which will be mounted horizontally. If this is the case then the motherboard socket will be disabled, there are a couple of solutions to this though, you can remove the graphics card which will re enable the onboard graphics and allow you to use your monitor, you can buy a monitor with a DVI input or you can buy from most PC stores a DVI to VGA converter which lets you use your existing monitor with your graphics card although the frame rates and refresh may not be so good, the latter is the method I would recommend to get going.

Hope this helps and thanks for using fixya

How can I connect Panasonic TH-37PX60U Flat panel plasma tv to my computer?


It will depend on your video output options on the computer. If you have HDMI output, just use an HDMI cable and an audio cable (this will need to be a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable). If you have a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable and the audio cable (or a DVI to HDMI adapter and either a DVI or HDMI cable depending on which side you want to put the adapter). If you only have VGA out from the computer, use a VGA to DVI adapter and the DVI to HDMI connection and the audio connection. (Theoretically this should work but each adapter will have some signal loss issues.)

Some graphics cards have a video output, S-video or Component video, which would also connect to your TV with the audio cable. (Read your cards manual for more information)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(For DVI to HDMI cables, you will need to check if you have a single link or dual link DVI output. The wrong cable may not work.)
