LG 37LC7D Connect to VGA from a PC

We have a LG 37LC7D that we would like to connect to a PC. The PC output is a VGA cable, but the TV input is an RGB-PC cable. We connected them via a VGA cable but the TV shows a message under the RGB-PC setting "Invalid input".

Any suggestions on how to hook up this TV to a PC?

Thanks.

Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.

Thanks for the help.

Guys, Recently i got LG 22" LCD TV. It has VGA port and HDMI port. When i connected my CPU cable toLCD via VGA port it didn't show anything, :"( i checked input MENU on remote then it shows only 4...


HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface]. VGA [Video Graphics Array]. AV [Audio Video]. By these definitions itself talk to you about the inputs your TV have; and it do not support VGA. Output from PC is VGA. Without a VGA input with the TV, you can't connect the PC to TV. I think I'm clear. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Hello......Let's talk video....Your Tv has an S-video input and a VGA input....Chances are your computer's video card hay not have S-video output...It's small ,round...looks similar to a PS2 mouse or keyboard port.If it does...you can use the S-video(SuperVideo).If you computer is not equipped with this...You can use the VGA typacally used to connect the monitor to the pc...Depending how far apart the TV and the PC are..this can be easy...this determines the length of the cables you are to use...If you go with the S-video cable..It may be less expensive...if you go with the VGA cable..be sure to get one long enough...as far as the sound...since your tv has a VGA input...I may also have the sound input for your pc connection..This requires a cable with a 1/8" stereo plug on either end...You can connect one end to you tv and the other to the headphone jack on your pc....or you could just listen to the sound thru the pc fpr now....Let me know how this works out....I hope this was helpful....PEACE....

How do i connect my pc to my LG 32LF77SO I CAN GET SOUND AND VISION


Most HDTVs today have a 15-pin VGA input so to hookup a PC, just connect a VGA monitor cable from the PC monitor output to the HDTV VGA input port. This gives you video. For audio, you can connect a stereo audio cable (3.5mm) from the PC soundcard speaker jack (usually green) to the HDTVs audio input port next to the VGA port. Next you need to adjust the settings for video resolution and refresh rate on the PC so that the HDTV is compatible. Look in the HDTVs owner's manual for a chart showing the acceptable video screen resolutions (1024 X 768) and refresh rates and adjust the PC accordingly. You should now have video and audio on the TV. For a laptop, it depends on what outputs it has, VGA, HDMI or S-Video but this can be done as well.

How do I hook up my hp computer to my lg flat screen tv


You can use the TV's VGA port which needs a VGA cable which you can get from a computer hardware store. It's called RGB in on your TV. This is also called PC input.The max resolution you will get is 1,366x768 off your PC.
