Trying to connect PC to Philips LCD HDTV

My husband has been trying for 3 hours to hook up our Sony Vaio desktop PC to our Philips LCD HDTV to use as a monitor and for all the different HDMI ports we try, etc, the TV still says "no signal" from the PC. How do we set it up? Why isn't it reading the signal?

While the tv is on the right input, and the computer is running, try unhooking the cable and hooking it back in. That's the only way I can get my Philips to detect the HDMI signal from my pc. I haven't found a fix for it though.

How do i connect my sony vaio to my Technika 42'' hdtv?


does your Technika 42" hdtv have a RGB connection, it will look like the same type of video connector on your computer, also if your sony vaio has a HDMI connection and your tv does as well, you might try hooking them up via an HDMI cable.

Im trying to get the software for linksys to hook two compters togeter


I agree with acqwerty, you don't need a router if all you want is connect two pc's, but if you already have a linksys router, just go on www.linksys.com and download the free software that will detect and setup your router.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.
