How do i go from my pc to my tv?


Your tv must have a VGA/DVI (-D) plugin for you to be able to do this directly. Otherwise, you will need a converter from VGA (which is an analog source) to RCA-type plug (generally yellow) or a converter from DVI (also analog) to RCA-type plug. If output is DVI-D (digital), there is also an adapter available (yet more expensive) to convert down to analog then to RCA-Type plug.

I have personally found these adapters at places like Best Buy, Walmart and Radio Shack.

This will ONLY convert the video. The audio will still have to be converted the same way.

If your TV will take an HDMI input, there are adapters to take in both the audio and video to create an HDMI input for television;

Good luck.

How can i connect my pc to my flatscreen


There are 2 ways I can think of:
1. Put a PCI TV / Video Card that has S-Video out in your computer. This can be connected directly to your TV if it has a S-Video (you can also buy S-Video to RCA/Video adapters if your flat screen doesn't have S-Video)
2. Buy a PC to Video Converter (also know as VGA to Video converter). This is usually a smallish box that you connect to your PC via cable, then connect to your TV via cable.

If you search the net for PCI Video / TV /Video capture cards and read the description for available functions or search for VGA to TV converters you should find what you are looking for.

I need to connect a Dell Optiplex GX520 PC Desktop to a TV that is non-HDMI Can you assist?


As I see you have two choices to connect your PC to TV.
1. Use VGA to RCA Component Cable

2. Use VGA to Scart Cable - It is hard to find that one.

So if you choose the first option, you have to connect VGA to your computer (it is marked with 9 in the picture below) and RCA end to the TV.
Before that, lower the resolution of the computer and set the frequency of the Video adapter to 50Hz.
Make sure your Video card software initializes the TV.

That's all. Simple as that.
Good luck!

Im trying to watch movies on my tv from my pc but my tv dont have vga, dvi,and hdmi ports it only has rca and s video.and my pc only has vga. how can i get it to watch movies from my pc to tv.


You would need to get a video card with an S-video or composite output. The sound comes from your speaker output jack (you can get a 3.5 mm stereo to dual RCA audio plug adapter cable for this).

Can i connect my all in one pc to my tv and if so how do i do it?


It depends on the PC and the television, but in most cases, yes you can. You will have to see what video out options your PC has (usually VGA and S-Video for older computers and HDMI and DisplayPort for newer models) If you TV has the same kind of input, then all you need to do is buy a cable and put one end in each device. If your TV does NOT have the same input, you will likely need to buy an adapter. For example, if your computer has a VGA output (the blue one) and your TV has RCA inputs (yellow, white and red), then you will need to search for a VGA to RCA adapter. I've found a site that should help you with this process.

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

Hook up a Sony VGC RA 840G desktop to a Samsung 46 inch TV


Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.

I want to connect my monitor which has a vga connection via a cat5e cable to my security camera which has a bnc connection on it


Hi,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008...

Not possible without a converter adapter at the same time signal losses, interference and noisy video if CAT5E cable used.

What I would suggest is to use coaxial cable (RG59) instead of the CAT5E. One end would be terminated with ta BNC male to connect to the camera. The other end would have to be terminated either with an RCA male. Before connecting to the VGA (15pin) input of the monitor, it would have to be processed by a converter/adapter. Here are some examples:
1. Composite Video to VGA adapter;
2. some high end adapters are shown here;
3. several shown here would also work.

In case you would like a DIY, this might interest you.

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.
