The settings are in your Video card settings. The video settings can walk you through the process. You did not tell me anything about the video card or the computer.

My pc will not work with my 32" tv screen it says


Without knowing the brand / model of the TV, PC video card, or Windows Operating System, I can only offer a general suggestion of trying a different resolution of the display on the PC.

Right-click an black area on your desktop, and click on "Properties". Click on the Settings tab to display the options shown below:


10_5_2011_4_37_35_pm.jpg

Adjust the "Screen resolution" slide control in the "less" direction (in the red circle) and then attempt to send the screen to the TV again. Repeat as often as needed until a workable set of resolutions are found.

If unable to get a display, provide the info asked for above, and include the length of the VGA cable and any adapters used.

Good luck!

I have msi model ms 6873d i try to connect with tv with vga cable in tv i can only see the backround of the pc why???i change the analysis but the same only backroung i saw in tv.


Your computer is set to extended display. That means that your desktop will extend to the other screen. I think what you want to achieve is to clone your display. That means that you are going to copy what ever you have on your portable system to the TV.
The path to the display settings differs from one OS to another but you have to get to the same option whether it is XP, Vista or Win7.
Right click on the desktop screen then go to Graphics option. Look for an option to clone your display. That should show the same thing on your TV as you have on your portable system

I try to use my Norcent tv with computer with a vga cable, but I get a "no signal input" memo on the screen vhen I try to set the source. What do I need to do?


you need to set the computer to display on another monitor. You don't say what kind of compture you are trying to hook up, but generally if you right click on your screen and then click either "settings" if XP or "screen resolution" if Windows 7 you can find an option to use the tv as a monitor. most laptops will have the option to "display on projector" option. These alll vary with each computer model, but you have to tell the computer to display on your tv, most won't do it automatically

I am trying to hook my PC to my HDTV. I both a cable VGA/SVGA cable to do that. I am having problems trying to see my pc screen on the tv, what can I do to make it work.


First turn off TV+PC. Then switch on TV only.Press TV/AV on your remote to AV2 or .. Now switch on your PC. It will detect your TV as a new hardware & install the drivers automatically. You can use options from your graphic card later such as dual monitor or clone monitor..

No picture just different straight up colors


I had the same exact problem with my PC to TV only showing colored bars. I watched a lot of videos/read many forums to try to figure this out.

The solution was very simple.

I did two things wrong: 1) I was using a different VGA cable then the one that came with the unit. 2) My PC resolution was not set to 1024x768 so my tv couldnt read it.

MAKE SURE you use the VGA y-cable provided with the unit and MAKE SURE you plug the one labeled "PC" into your PC (as opposed to the other blue one labeled "monitor," which i dont use. it DOES make a difference)

Then i press fn+F7 (my particular hot key for external monitor display. every comp is different, so check yours online/in the manual) on my laptop. I had to enable the "XGA 1024x768" option under the "fn+F7 settings." (all i did was check off a box for this option and click OK. then i was able to use that option)

Once i did this, POOF!!!! Away went the annoying colored bars and up came my computer!! HOORAY!!!

So lets recap:
1) use the provided y-cable to connect PC to TVtoPC and plug them in according to its label.
2) make sure your hot key settings has the option for "Presentation on Projector and Notebok : XGA 1024x768" and enable it. (i assume xga=vga???)
3) once you click that resolution option, your picture should come up! (if not, then just reset the pc to tv and it should work!

I hope this helps you with your problem!!

PS: I read that the computer needs to have a screen refresh rate of 60 hz. This is accessable thru right click->preferences->display settings->advanced settings->monitor->refresh rate. I didnt need to mess with this cuz my PC already had that setting. the resolution was the actual problem.

PS #2: I saw many videos on youtube saying that you needed to switch to monitor 2 under the display settings. this is contrary to my setup. I am still using monitor 1. just with the 1024x768 res. instead of my normal 1400x1050 resolution.

Sorry if this is really wordy! Hope it helps you solve your problem and keep you from throwing your PC to TV out the window!!

Cant connect pc to tv monitor


Hello,

Do you have ans S-Video port on the computer and the TV?. Does your TV have a VGA port? You must open the AV option of your TV (with the remote controller) and select the input to TV as S-Video or PC depending on the Computer-TV connction. On your computer use the graphics option so as to send the screen output to the two devices or just to the TV.

If you configure your TV and connect it to the computer before turning the computer on, the output will probably go to the TV.

Hope it helps

Try right clicking on the desktop and selecting "Display Properties" and attempting to configure it there. Once it is properly configured here, F4 may start working again.

How do I get my TV to display my Dell Dimension 2400? I have the cables for the connection and I have connected other computers to to TV with no problems-- it seems this is more of a software/display...


Try this: right click on the desktop (wall paper picture) and select "Properties" (up to XP) or "Graphics Options" (Vista). You should be able to select you TV as a second display. The TV option may only show if it is connected.
