Want to get my pc on tv


Computers have become all-out media centers, capable of playing movies, music, and video games and even of streaming live television. Modern computers also come with an assortment of ports and outlets that allow easy connectivity to other devices, including televisions. Today's HDTVs can display high-resolution images ideal for showing off the media available on your computer, and they're relatively easy to connect.

Determine which type of cable to use; it will depend on which ports both your computer and TV share. Older computers and TVs will only have S-Video or VGA ports. Ideally, your computer and TV will both have HDMI ports, which allows for high-definition video and audio transfer. Consult your owner's manuals for port identification before deciding on which cable to use. Connect the computer's video outlet, either HMDI, VGA, or S-Video, to the TVs corresponding video input. These will usually be on the back of the TV and will be clearly labeled. Turn on your TV and set it to the proper video channel, which will correspond with the type of cable you have used. Some TVs have multiple ports for the same connection. Just set the video channel to whichever port you have used--for example, "HDMI 1" or "HDMI 2." On your computer, right click on your desktop and highlight "Graphics Properties," prompting a submenu to pop up. Highlight and click "Output to TV." Your computer's images should now be displayed on the TV instead of the monitor.

It sounds like you are having a video card issue. Either that or the computer is running too many programs at once and causing it to run out of ram.

Description---- Problems with video cards show up as intermittent system lockups when playing 3D games, small dots of color spattered across the Window desktop, the inability to run certain 3D games, and the inability to open Windows normally. All of these issues can occur because of video hardware or driver problems. Find an item below that matches your video need: For integrated video memory that is adjustable, use the following steps to change the amount of video memory (RAM) from the PC BIOS Setup:
  1. Turn on the PC.
  2. When the blue HP screen appears, press the F1 key. Entering Setup should appear on the screen.
  3. When BIOS Setup screen appears, use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced screen.
  4. Use the down Arrow key to select the video memory setting; for example; VGA RAM Size, integrated video, or On-Board Video Memory.
  5. Press the Enter key.

My Girlfriends Compaq Presario sr1920nx has lots of problems... the one right now is the display. I replaced her monitor with another used one because it died. Now the one I just put on won't stay on, you...


Please check your cable, video settings, video card drivers and your monitor settings.

Also test the monitors on another computer. If they turn on while connected on another computer then your problem is your video card on your problem computer, that's if all else fails. This would mean that you would need to replace your video card.

So let's begin. It's obvious checking your video cable is pretty easy.
Ensure that both ends of the video cable are plugged in nice and tight and secure. Usually this video cable is blue at the ends.

Check your Video Card Driver

Go to your device manager in Windows.
Nagivate to Control Panels/System/Hardware Device Manager in Windows XP.
In Windows Vista and 7, Navigate to Control Panels, System, Device Manager
Look in Monitor and see if there is a yellow question mark or exclamation mark. If there are then right click on them and update the driver. Also while you're in here, go ahead and make sure there are no yellow question marks or exclamation marks. IF there are then go ahead and right click and update the drivers. You will need internet access for this. Follow the prompts to completion.

Let me know if this solves your problem.

Don't forget to give me a good rating and vote for me.

How do I disable the video componet on the motherboard of my Presario SR2032X so I can install a new video card in the PCI-Express slot?


You need to enter the BIOS utility. Depending on the age of your computer, this requires you to press the F10 key when the first splash screen appears after turning on the computer. (Some machines built prior to 2006 use F1.) Sometimes this can be difficult to time; be prepared to shut down and retry.

Once in that utility, press the right arrow key and go to the Advanced menu tab. Press the down arrow and go to the line Primary Video Display. You need to change this to the Slot Type (with the + or - keys).for your computer.

If you want to leave the setup and save, press F10. Alternatively, use the arrow keys and go to the Exit tab and go down to the first line and hit enter.

Turn off your computer, unplug everything and insert the new card following the directions for that device.

I hope this helps.

Find the video card you want, You must make sure that your new video card will fit into the system as some cards need the extended PCI slot that your computer does not have. The system should recognise the new vidxeo card, but if it doesn't you will need to go into your computer's BIOS with the f10 key on startup. Once in Setup, go to Advanced with the right arrow key, then down arrow to Primary Video Adapter. Pfress Enter, select PCI, then press Esc then F10 to save and exit.

Is it possible to connect my computer with a VGA output to my HDTV with HDMI inputs?


hi there, sure it is.
either check if the video card has two output interfaces(VGA and HDMI) so use the white HDMI-otlet with a cable and your TV, else do get an VGA-to- HDMI adaptor and try connecting the VGA outlet and your TV-set.

Good luck
