This depends on the operating system you are using. If it's XP, right click on the desktop, select properties. Select the Settings tab. Select the box that represents your TV (will be either 1 or 2). You can press the identify button to find out too. Click advanced, the click the Monitor tab. This is where you change the refresh rate. Select it from the drop down, click apply and ok. Then you can ok out of the Display properties.

My son was on my computer and change my video mode and turn off my computer and now it say that it can not display the video mode optimum resolution 1024x768 60Hz

Please reboot the machine. After it beeps hit F8 repeatedly. You'll get
a menu. One menu item will be "vga mode". Choose that, and use
the control panel to A) set 800x600, boot normally
or B) try setting your normal mode. Hope this helps even a bit.

Dell optiplex gx 260 180w power supply. My hp monitor's best resolution is 1920 by 1200 at 60hz. The gx can only manage 1600 by 1200 at 60hz. Have you a solution to this problem?

Hi Trevarth,

The Optiplex GX 260 was outfitted with either Integrated Intel Extreme graphic or a 4x AGP video card. In either case if you try to change the resolution and 1920 X 1200 is not an option, the video card does not support that high of a resolution. If you want the higher resolution you will have to buy an AGP video card. When selecting a card, look at the specs and make sure that the higher resolution is supported. The good news is that AGP cards are not that expensive. Here are a couple site you can find video cards.

You can find very cheap used one here:,p_ord:p&prmd=ivns&fp=a9f29339130ebba7

but be careful to check the specs before you order.

Hope this helps

I have a Dell Desktop , bought a cable to hook it up with my tv, also using a hd15 vga splitter, when I hook the wire going to the tv my computer monitor says cannot display video mode 1280by1200...

You just need to lower the screen resolution thats all.

You don't need a TV tuner card but you do need to adjust settings for your graphics card.

If its NVIDIA then use the DUALVIEW For ATI there is a similar thing but I don't use ATI so you would have to figure that one out yourself.

I have a tv screen which i use for my computer.I have the hdmi cords going from the video card on the back to my tv.why is it not working

Make sure your t.v. screen supports your display card resolution. Try lowering your display card resolution in display settings. Make sure your t.v. is set to AVI.

Best wishes,

Need to know scan frequency of the computer

Most TV have interlaced 60, which is really 30 hz...

You can set your computer's scan frequency by right clicking on desktop, then going to the rightmost tab, under advanced, click on the monitor tab and select 60 from dropdown tab...

However, most videocards output Svideo to tv, not VGA so don't worry about it. if your TV has VGA in, you can select 60, but if it has VGA in, it probably has greater than 60 capabilities... but 60 is rock safe for everything.

How do i make my hp computer connect to my samsung tv

First you have to make sure your TV has the right video input like VGA or DVI.
Then Your computer has to have DVI if the TV has DVI connector.

If the TV has VGA and you know that all computers come with at least VGA, all you would need is a VGA video cable.

Hook the cable to the VGA port, then set your TV to the input that coincides with VGA.
then you can set the resolution in the control Panel > display to the best resolution that gives you a good picture on the TV.

Setting up a toshiba tecra 9100 to output with composite (av) out plug but on the tv the computer is plugged into only shows the top left quarter of the computers screen,, can this be solved by adjusting...

Your tv may not support resolutions greater than composit 640x480@60Hz

If you plan to use composit signaling set everything to 640x480@60Hz
