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?
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.
Chnage the resolution of your tv to a resolution that your tv holds .I had the same problem with this tv and vga to my xbox 360.I connected the xbox back to a computer monitor and had to reset the resolution.Now it works. Good luck

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....

you need 3 vga connector and 1 splitter to connect a dual monitor system.
connect one end of the vga connector to the pc unit and the other end to the input port of splitter.
now the 2 remaining vga connector connect to the output of splitter either of the port, then the 2 end wire you must connect to the input port ( pc service port ) of the 2 tv monitor. make sure you set up the right input either with the remote or at the tv unit to recognized the pc source.
you almost done the connections now at this point plug the tv monitors, plug the dc adapter supply of the vga splitter and lastly turn on the pc unit to view movies. i hope it will help you just ask me if you have further questions thanks for choosing the fixya.
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.
Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.
You need a VGA cable (15 pin) connected from PC (monitor out) to the PC input on the HDTV (15 pin) this is for the video. For the audio, connect from PC to HDTV, audio cable, either 3.5mm from earphone out on PC to HDTV 3.5mm audio input (next to PC VGA input) and also be sure to set PC screen resolution to compatible output for HDTV like 1024 X 768 or 600 x 800 etc.
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.
-get a vga cable(usually both ends are male)
- connect it to the vga port on the laptop then the other end to your tv
-press fn+f2 to switch the display to your tv( this is model/brand dependent, check your user's manual for more info)
if your laptop has vga output and your tv has vga input then connect vga output to vga input on the tv with a VGA cable that simple. With no real information onverning model numbers - i cant tell you what else you need to do.
