Salutations RandomDrone,

From reading your owners manual it appears the max resolution of the television would be 1280X1024 when using the VGA connection.

If you would like to review the manual it should be available at:

Sorry, I didn't have better news.

RESOLUTION IS STUCK TO 800X600 IN MY LAPTOP...IT WAS WORKING FINE FOR A WHILE, AND NOW IT DOESNT WORK ANYMORE...DRIVER ISSUE? VISTA ISSUE?


If you check under Display Settings, in the control panel, or right click on your desktop and if there is only one option for the resolution, then reinstall the driver. If there are more options for resolution, try them.

I own an insignia 42"


The TV resolution is set by the video sources, not at the TV, in this case, your Dish network box is the one that is sending out 480p so the TV will display what it is being fed with.
What does Dish TV say aboyt this problem? How about the setup menu on the Dish network box?
Your TV works the same as your PC monitor, except that your monitor does not have a tuner, you adjust the resolution at the PC not at the monitor. 480p in = 480p display.

I need to reset the screen resolution from 480 dpi to 1080 dpi


The TV does not have resolution setting adjustment, it works the same way as the PC monitor which the resolution is done on the PC, same for TV. If you feed it with 480p signal, it will display 480p, if you feed it with 1080I it will display 1080i. The video source dictates the TV display resolution.
What kind of video sources are you feeding the TV with?

How do i set it to 1080 from 420


You do not set the resolution at the TV, the TV will show what ever video resolution it is being fed with, up to the max resolution it can display, it works the same way as the PC moniotor, which you set it at your computer.

If my television is 780p how do i achieve this quality?


You do not adjust the resolution at the TV, the TV will display what ever the source resolution is as long as it is not higher than the TV can handle. Source determines the resolution, just like the computer monitor, which is controlled by the computer.

I plugged in the VGA cord from my computer to my television


Most likely your current resolution isn't supported by the TV. Before you plug your TV up to your computer, set your desktop resolution to 1024 x 768. This is the standard and is supported by most if not all flat screens. If it doesn't work on this setting try 800 x 600 or 1280 x 768. One of those three should show up. If no resolutions work, then there is something wrong with the TV. If other monitors work on your computer then the computer is just fine.

I am trying to usa a VGA cable to watch my mac book pro on my 42" Insignia 1080P hdtv. when I do I just keep getting the message not supported on teh TV... I have changed my screen ratio on my mac book pro...


Use a 60Hz refresh rate and a basic resolution (Like 1024x768), is it works, set the resolution to the native of the display (Maybe 1920x1080 @ 60Hz).
DON'T set a refresh rate higher than 60Hz for any LCD.

Insignia LCD TV won't recognize computer input...


Heres the dealyo.
Click start button
Click control panel
Click display
Click settings
adjust screen resolution (probably have to go down) until the tv displays your computer
if this did not work, you will have to adjust bit rate from 32 to 16. Fiddle with the settings until the magic happens.
You will not get any sound unless you use an audio jack plugged into t.v.
