I am trying to hook up a 26 inch viZio to my hip desktop utilizing the VGA cord. It won't come up? I am on the comp screen on the tv also.


Once you plug the VGA cable from the computer to the VGA port on the tv, get the remote for the TV and go to the Select Input function so that you can select PC or Computer as the input source. Then Reboot the Computer.

Once the computer reboots it will probably display on the tv. If not, Press and Hold the FN function key on the computer then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The correct key (F1 thru F12) will have LCD/CRT on it or it might have the icon of a display.
Once it is pressed the video should toggle each time you hit it from showing on the Computer only, TV only, both the TV and Computer.

Cannot connect acer pc to tv


The PC and the TV need to have the same kind of connection such as VGA or HDMI. If not you will need some type of converter between the two to make them compatible. Once you have them connected set the TV's input to PC, Computer or HDMI if you use the HDMI connection. Reboot the computer and see if the image appears on the TV. If not you can hit the FN Function key on the computer + the F1 thru F12 key that corresponds to the External Display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit might have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that corresponds to the external display to toggle the display between the computer, the tv or show it on both the tv and the computer.

No signal message on my screen


That means your Monitor is not receiving a signal that it is connected to the computer. Make sure that the cable from the screen is in snuggly and tightened in the back of the computer. Also make sure that the other end of that cable is in tight on the back of the monitor.

If both are in good, then either your Monitor is bad or the Video Card in the computer is bad. If you have another monitor try it on the computer, if it works, that means the other monitor is bad. If you have another computer, plug the monitor that is getting the message into that computer and see what happens. If it works, that means the video card in the original computer is bad.

You can even plug the monitor into a laptop if it has a VGA cable and the laptop has a VGA Port. Some laptops will require you to hit the FN (function key) plus a (F1 thru F12) key to get the image to display. Press and HOLD the FN key then hit the appropriate (F1 thru F12) key to display the image. The appropriate key will normally have LCD/CRT written on it or it will have the icon of a display screen.

Go to Safe mode using the F8 key.

( Shut down the computer --> Now turn on the system and keep tapping the F8 key on the system.--> you will receive the windows Advance option--> choose the Safe mode option and hit enter--> choose the your operating system and hit enter..)

In safe mode if the computer prompts to enter the Administrator account --> Do not put any thing and hit enter --> that means use Blank Password and hit enter. If it works perfect follow the further steps. If it does not choose another account if exist.

In safe mode :-

steps 1:-

click on start--> run-->control userspasswords2 hit enter. Now the window which opens up--> uncheck the option which says :- Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer.
after unchecking it hit apply button at the botton and hit ok.

Now when you restart the computer will not ask you the Password and will take you directly to the Account.

once you are in you can remove the Password through the user accounts in control panel.

Try this and let me know if it works...!

PC keyboard is requiring 5 second pause between double strokes


Seems a driver issue to me.
İf you are using windows operation system than go "my computer" rigt click>properties>Hardware tab.
Click on the "device manager" find the "Keyboards" click on this and you will see the installed keyboard. Uninstall it and reboot the computer. Windows will be register it again with fresh drivers when your operation system is loaded during restart.

PS. If you keyboard has USB connection, plug it off before shut down and plug it on after your system is fully loaded. Wait for the informative pop up messages sayin " new hardware found" etc. You can use it after "your hardware installed and ready for use" message displayed.

Hi how do i get the screen to be brighter


Usually if you have a lcd or crt the brightness control will be on the monitor itself. If you have a lap then it's usually a "fn" key. Look on your keyboard for one or two keys that have a sun or light or something like that one them. You will most likely have to hit the function key (fn) first then the brightness keys.
