I have the same TV and i finally installed ubuntu. Use Terminal and put this "xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 800x600 --rate 56" then your Tv will be at 800x600 at 56hz. I'm trying to put it at 1080i but Tv not responds.
Sorry for my English :P

Hi,

To my knowledge your Philips 42PF9945 is capable of a maximum of 852 x 480screen resolution at 50Hz. It is TV standard but pretty low for PC work, that being the case, perhaps what is required is for you to lower the Screen Resolution as well as the Screen refresh Rate of the laptop. They may be found in the display properties (Control Panel) or right click on any clear area of your desktop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i connect compaq presario x1000 to external monitor


Hi Judy,

The Compaq Presario x1000 notebook offers connections for external displays at the rear below the screen hinge as show in the picture below:

steve_con_5.gif

Identifying the back from left to right: Ventilation slots, External VGA Port, S-Video Port, USB Port, USB Port, RJ-45 Network Jack, RJ-11 Telephone Jack, Parallel Printer Port, USB Port and 1394 (a.k.a. "Firewire") Port.

You can connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (blue colored jack) very easily. Any analog VGA monitor should readily connect to it. Additionally, the x1000 can output its display to TV or other monitor that accepts "S-Video" signals. An "S-Video" cable will be needed to connect between the "S-Video" jacks on the notebook (next to the VGA Port) and one on the TV. It is important to note that not all TVs support both or either "S-Video" or VGA inputs. When ever the there is a choice of using S-Video or VGA on a TV or monitor, the VGA will provide the best looking picture, and should be used.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

How to hook my ns230e to my hdtv


Looking at the spec for that model - you only have a VGA output On you HDTV do you have a VGA input for PC connection, often HD TV do - if not then we will need the make and model of the TV and type of connections available - also need to check the grahics driver on the laptop to see if it supports TV out via VGA if its to be connected to a different input on the TV anyway LETS ASSUME YOU HAVE A VGA input on the TV TV:- probably has a PC input - which is a VGA connector looks like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/SVGA_port.jpg and then you select PC input on the TV to display whats connected to that port Laptop: - Now on the laptop, you will need to select the VGA output to work - there will be a picture of a screen on one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard, F4, F5 normally on laptops, My Sony uses F7 ---- (assuming F7) use the FN key and the F7 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>

How to connect acer aspire mini laptop to digital lcd tv?


You get the audio from PC: you must use a separate audio cable to your TV audio input.
Configure your PC Display properties to a lower resolution until you reach a format your tv can display.
If you use a flat digital screen check the manual to know the resolution to be used with VGA input.
Use Dual screen option or swittch main screen/external/both using FN key + blue key showing screen on your keyboard. (F4 or F7? check manual.)

Lenovo T60 interfacing with Vizio HDTV using RGB cable


The X1400 supports Full-HD resolution. Full-HD/True-hd (1920x1080)
The best output would be via DVI but you are limited with the VGA port.
I would purchase a Grand Hi-Wire PC to HDTV converter from www.globalcomputer.com. Item # G126-1036 @ $139.99

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

Lg 42PX4dv PC connection


I think the problem is the screen resolution and size of your pc is not matching the resolution size of your tv or is not compatable at the size you have it on or you may have to change to 4:3 ratio from widescreen. In your manual it will tell you the resolution sizes that you tv uses. You would probably be better also using the VGA to DVI lead, thats if it came with the tv (it does in the UK) as it supports higher wide screen resolution, whereas VGA will only support 1024 x 768 or there abouts.
