Question about Samsung LE40R74BDX 40 in. LCD Television
Hello.. I have been on about 4 forums now, and read all the similar / exact same problems and not one of them has come to a conclusion. No one, to my knowledge, actually got this working..
I have a new 40" Samsung LCD TV.. and a standard Dell laptop.. when I plug the VGA cable in both ends, and press Fn + F8 (to output to the tele), the PC option on the Source list on my TV is still greyed out.
However, I recently used the same laptop with a VGA cable to output to an older, Sony TV. It was just a big boxy one (i.e. not flat screen), 32".. and it worked fine! As soon as I pressed Fn + F8 it just appeared on the TV!
So this is puzzling me as this new Samsung TV is brand new and the VGA cable is brand new....
Any sensible suggestions would be greatly appreciated..
The problem is located in the CABLE, the SAMSUNG LCD need the higher quality cable than others vendors.
Please try it.

The greyed out option indicates that no signal has been detected. Page 30 of the operations manual lists the supported display settings. Make sure that the laptop "screen" is within this range. Also, try making sure that the laptop is connected BEFORE you power on the set. There may be a glitch there.
Keep us posted.
