The problem probably lies in the fact that you have not told the computer to send the display to another device. This is done through a combo of keystrokes--using the Fn key with the special function key that shows a monitor (or two monitors) on it.
If you hit that combo, it will cycle through the attached displays.

I have horizontal lines in my compaq presario c508us notebook pc. i dont know how to fixed it.


First try connecting an external display to your computer using a cable and the VGA port and an appropriate cable (<$5)
If the display shows no problems it's the screen (most likely).
You can either have the screen replaced at a computer shop - this is likely to be in region of $100 ?) or buy a spare and do it yourself. However before you do that find out exactly what you need and how to do it. Search the internet. Some places are
the HP web page for this model, gives access to the service manual, http://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/Compaq-Presario-C500-Notebook-PC-series/3318986/model/3337791/product-info Also ask on the HP forum.

Can I take video from my digicam/burn it DVD w/my Presario C500?


As long as your computer supports the video format (probably .mp4) and you have the right cables to connect it to the computer (probably miniUSB-USB) and the proper software (probably Nero), and a DVD burner, then yes! You most certainly can. There are many guides available on the Internet for copying videos and burning DVDs.

Cant get compaq laptop to show screen on TV with cord


Well, my wife has an older Compaq Presario so I don't know if this solution will help...

After you connect the cabble from the laptop to the TV, you need to tell the laptop to send a TV signal...

On her laptop, there is a special "FN" key on the keyboard near the "Windows" key. You press that along with the display key at the same time. Her display key if the 'f4' key at the top of the keyboard.

It is likely that you'll need to do the same thing with your system.

The only other way would be through the display properties setting.
With ALL windows closed or minimized, right click on an empty area (no icons) of your desktop.
Select the Graphics Properties option and look for a multi-display option or an option to change display devices.

Should say something like TV, S-Video, Composite, or maybe HDMI.

Hope this helps,
vujsa
