Connect my msi all in one computer to tv with vga/svga video cable


Assuming your TV is HDMI input only you'll need a converter.

Once you've installed the converter it will be very easy just plug them together set your TV's input to what ever HDMI port you've plugged in. on your PC desktop rightclick go to properties and enable the second display.

On my asus Eee Pc 1201HAB the display shifted to the left so the left side is partially cut off, how do i fix it?


1) Looking at the User Manual right now, and do not see a Hot Key on the Keyboard, that shifts the display.

[ Hot Key is also known as Special Key. The F1 through F12 keys at the top of the keyboard, and also for your model, colored keys on the keyboard ]

It could be the Screen Resolution is messed up. Not set at the correct settings.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
At the bottom of the drop down list, click on Properties.

In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

The screen pixel resolution should be set at 1366 X 768,

http://www.screentekinc.com/Asus_EEE_PC_1201HAB--12.1-inch--1366x768-wxga_hd-laptop-lcd-screen.shtml

In the middle of the Display Properties window, you see the blue subheading - Screen resolution

Right under this small subheading is a Slider.
The Pointed 'arrow' with the green tip, and top, slides back, and forth on the 'line'.

It should state 1366 X 768.
If it does not;

A) Left-click on that green tipped Slider. Hold the left mouse button down. Move your mouse, and move the Slider. (Drag)
Move it to the Left to Decrease the screen resolution, or to the Right to Increase the screen resolution.

Can't set it to 1366 X 768? Post back in a Comment.
ALSO, the Color Quality should be set to -
Highest (32 bit)

If not click on the blue down arrow to the right of this box.
In the list left-click on Highest (32 bit)

Now go below to the right, and click on Apply.
After go below to the Left, and click on OK.

Still no joy?
Believe the problem is hardware related.

Could be something as simple (?) as a bad Video Cable.
(Goes from the motherboard, up under the left Hinge, and then up into the Display Assembly)

Could be the screen Inverter.

However the Eee PC 1201HAB is supposed to use an LCD panel, that has qa series of LED's for backlighting.
Newer backlighting that uses a series of LED's for the Backlight, doesn't require a screen Inverter.

There were some LED backlit LCD screen, that DID use a screen Inverter. Mostly the older models of laptops.
This is what makes me think your LCD screen's Backlight, (And LED), may use a screen Inverter,

http://www.batterystyle.com/asus-eee-pc-1201hab-screen-p-168219.html

Scroll down,
"5. Disconnect the power cable and video cable from the Asus EEE PC 1201HAB Lcd panel. The power cable connects the screen's power source, the lcd inverter, to the backlight lamp attached to a side of the panel."

Probably just a generic form, and didn't take in consideration that the Eee PC 1201HAB netbook, uses a series of LED's, as a Backlight.

May not have a screen Inverter.

To explain;
Primer:

An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NA_Optical/Systems/BehindTheScenes/Optics101/

(Click on the window with the computer monitor in it )

It needs an additional light source. A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.

[ LED = Light Emitting Diode.
CCFL stands for Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

{Average thickness of a CCFL bulb is 2mm. That is a a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
The average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height]

A screen Inverter is used to CONVERT the power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

Do not see any listings for an Asus Eee PC 1201HAB netbook, for a screen Inverter. Believe the LCD screen uses LED's for a Backlight, and does NOT use a screen Inverter.

Which means if the problem is in the Display Assembly, the LCD screen itself will need to be replaced.
The LED backlighting is built-in.

[Hmmmm, I see a trend going on here that I do not care for, and just woke up to it. Have to replace the entire LCD screen, and cannot just replace the Backlight, or screen Inverter? Sounds like Ka-ching $$$$$ for somebody!

A screen Inverter usually averages from $20 to $40+.
A Backlight ( CCFL) usually ranges from $10 to $15.
An average LCD screen can range from $80 to $300+.]

How to know if the problem is in the Display Assembly?
Use a VGA monitor, and connect it to your laptop.

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF. Connect a VGA monitor's cable to the VGA port on the laptop.
(Left side rear. This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector { Port on a computer },

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector )

You can use an older CRT type of VGA monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable attached.

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should automatically show, on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least three display options:
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press the Fn key down, and hold it down. At the same time tap once on the F8 key.
The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
(Give it a few seconds. Sometimes it doesn't happen right away)

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F8 key.

Is the display off to one side on the external VGA monitor?

I am trying to hook up a 26 inch viZio to my hip desktop utilizing the VGA cord. It won't come up? I am on the comp screen on the tv also.


Once you plug the VGA cable from the computer to the VGA port on the tv, get the remote for the TV and go to the Select Input function so that you can select PC or Computer as the input source. Then Reboot the Computer.

Once the computer reboots it will probably display on the tv. If not, Press and Hold the FN function key on the computer then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The correct key (F1 thru F12) will have LCD/CRT on it or it might have the icon of a display.
Once it is pressed the video should toggle each time you hit it from showing on the Computer only, TV only, both the TV and Computer.

What cables do i need to set my toshiba regza 46fx355 as a pc monitor i can get pic with vga but no sound


VGA is for carrying the video signal only. You will needa 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo plug to get sound output through the tv. Connect one end of the plug to the audio output port of the pc and the other end into the headphones jack on your tv and walla!
Here's the plug I am referring to. You can probably get one at your local computer store.

I have a dell GX280 and I tried to connect it to a Olevia LCD TV but I have a problem to do so. I connect it via VGA cable. When I started the PC I could see TV display Windows logon and show PC is...


Lower you screen resoloution to 800x600 to start with. Also you must setup mutimonitor, correctly.
Right, well, IF your TV has a DB15 Female Plug on it then you CAN, connect it up and it will work, as a second "Monitor". OR If the laptop, has a "Composite Video" a Yellow RCA socket, then you can, connect to the TV's Composite IN. & it will be a second monitor. Otherwise you cannot, the VGA signal is NOT compatible with a TV's input. SOME cards have a connector that plugs into the DB15 and to the TV, but they are "Special". In saying that though you can "Micky Mouse" things together and get an output, but it real poor quality, and disappointing results, there are various posts on the net about doing this if you wish.
Remember DRIVERS, you also need the drivers installed & setup correctly in order for the hardware to work. As a tip, When connecting to a TV, always connect like this......First, plug all cables into TV's correct Video input(s). Connect up the Sound, plug all cables into laptop, turn TV ON. NOW, start the laptop, you should now soon see the an image.
NOTE: Some laptops & other devices, have HDMI out, sometimes, the AUDIO is not passed through, the HDMI cable, & the Audio must be run from Audio/Line OUT on laptop to AV IN on TV.Also some laptops have a socket that a multi-way 4/5/6/7 pins. A connector plugs into this, you then can connect to these connections, as you would normally.

Lap top is on but totally black no pictures


I've seen this on a couple of laptops before. On those, just unplugging AC power, then removing the battery and then reinserting it and reapplying AC got the video restored on the laptop. Hope this will work for you too!

Your toshiba m115, like my m105, is probably set at settings 1280X800. Once the LCD is hooked up to your laptop
  1. Right mouse click on empty spot on desktop
  2. left click on properties
  3. left click on settings tab
  4. left click on advanced
  5. left click on INTEL MEDIA GRAPHICS tab at top
  6. left click on graphics properties
