Problem with setting up PC mode on my LE40S7 LCD TV

When I have try to call up PC setting mode on the menu button of the tv handset, following the owners instruction book. It does not stay on the sceen long enough to do anything. The screen goes blank after 1 or 2 seconds. Even if I manage to move to an option in the pc setup the screen goes blank.
Also the tv instruction book recommends 1360 x 768 resolution. Unfortunately my laptop does not have this setting is has 1024 x 768 does this mean I cannot connect to the tv?

    Hi - I have managed to solve my initial problem, many thanks for your help. To cut it short the problem was my pc monitor settings would not activate dual monitors until suddenly a popup screen asked me if I wanted to activate dual screens and everything fell into place then. My problem now is my tv screen shows a fantastic view of Packard Bell desktop. However by chance I noticed my curser would only appear on the tv if it moved it off the pc screen to the right. To test this I can move my Windows pages right over to the right of the pc screen and it just about shows up on the left hand side of the tv screen. Presumably there is another setting I cannot find to sync the two screens.
    Sorry about the delay but it has taken me some time to get to this point.
    You will certainly have my acceptance rating.
    Thanks. Patricia.

    The user manual for the tv says to choose resolution of 1360x768 but my laptop only goes up to 1024x768. When I drag over the windows pages there does not seem to be any definition problem. The tv's pc setup gives options for fine and course tuning (I have used the auto turning function)of picture quality, moving up down or side to side of the picture. This only fine tunes centralisation and is very small movement, auto tuning and reset to factory settings. On the advanced tab of the pc display settings I have reduced the picture size from 96 to 46 but this only makes the image size smaller it doesn't sync the images.
    Many thanks, Patricia

    Hi
    Thanks for all your help. I too have to go out and will be out for the evening (its 4.30pm here). I will pick up again tomorrow morning and feed back to you how I get on.
    Talk to you tomorrow if that's ok.

    Hi
    I have spent the a good part of this morning getting to grips with my problem and I believe I have cracked it. It appears in dual monitor mode in Windows XP one doubles the monitor size by placing two monitors side by side. I can manage the Windows pages from the laptop and video's etc played in full screen on the tv, or I can have one window on the laptop and a different window on the tv screen (working with two monitors). Now I have got my head round it I am a 'happy bunnie'.
    Many thanks for all your help, another problem solved and I will give my rating for you.
    Good luck for the future.
    Oh! I am in your part of the world, southern spain - an expat.

  • Calahonda Feb 12, 2008

    Thank you for you suggestion. My problem turned out to be a need to configure Windows to accept there was a second monitor. Once that was done there was no problem with pc setup on the tv.

Win Tyler,
Information on resolving your locked screen on your LCD is listed below.
