Here are some questions. Are you using two monitors or only the flat screen? Also, what type of cable are you using, RGB, DVI, HDMI, S-Video? It should say on the back of the TV where it is plugged in if you're not sure. Another thing is if you are using the video coming from the motherboard of the PC or do you have an independent video card. The TV should act just like a normal monitor depending on your connections. If you have any questions let me know and I'll help as much as I can. Good luck!

Good afternoon. I have an LCD . When I turn it


Sometimes LCD screens can flicker if kept in cold environments. Make sure that it's not too cold in the area of the LCD. Also, make sure the cable to the monitor is connected properly, as a loose cable can also cause the screen to flicker.

looking at you laptop keyboard, you should be able to find a key that has a small picture of a monitor on it... normally will be one of the F or numeric keys... find this key first, then activate the external display function using that key (maybe by pushing the F key and the Key we found) typically for each time you click to activate that function, your computer will switch between three modes: internal + external, internal only or external only... good luck

No signal


Weegee, Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi for info on DVI interfaces.
