I believe VGA converters require power. Is the VGA converter plugged in, and powered on?

    What is the make/model of the VGA converter?

    Note:Before place the bid, please be sure to check the manual of your system to make sure the Video Card of your system supports TV (RCA/S-Video) output through VGA port. Not every Video card will work with this adaptor. Only certain Video cards which have TV Output function built into VGA port will work through this adapter.

    It appears this card only works with certain Graphics Cards on a computer, and is not meant for PS3 video output. It will not work for your PS3, sorry.

How do I hook my wii up to my gateway monitor?


If you are trying to hook it to a pc monitor you will have to get a converter box for the specific type of input. for example VGA,DVI,HDMI, the red, green, blue, is video out. The red and white is audio. You will also need speakers for audio. Most monitor do not have speakers. The type of cable you have for your wii is a component cable. There are also different dvi standards they are

If the monitor is hdmi you will have to make sure it has speakers if not you wont have any audio. So a converter box will be needed.

How do I hook my tv up to my acer netbook? I dont have a tv port but do have a port for a second moniter and have the cord to hook it up but it will not work...


If the TV doesn't have a VGA input, you have two options. If the TV has component video inputs (3 RCA jacks color-coded red, green and blue, not just a single video jack coded yellow), you can use a simple adapter cable. Here is an example.

If your TV only has a single yellow video input jack (called composite video) you can't use the simple cable. But you can get a VGA to video converter. This device takes the VGA signals and converts them to the form the TV can use.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

How do you hook up ps3 to tv


What you need to do is make sure that your cables are indeed in the correct spot. Also make sure that your TV is turned to the correct channel. If you are connecting via Red, White, Yellow cables then you need to make sure your TV is turned to the video input. Also an FYI if you have cable that can interfere with your PS3 so to be safe make sure that your cable box is turned off.

How do i hook up a nintendo to my tv which cords go where and can someone walk me through it


Round peg into the round hole. Red peg on the red slot. etc. If the wire from the nintendo doesn't fit the slot on the tv then you're in the wrong slot. if the wire from the nintendo fits the slot on the tv (and is the same color if you are using red/white/yellow rca cables) then you're good. here's a hint on connection types (you will not mix): 1. RCA (red/white/yellow round connectors) Red=right audio sound White=left audio sound Yellow=video connect to the slots that look like they want some. 2. Coaxial (stiff cable with a pinner poking out of the end -- same cable that connects you to cable tv) just hook it up by itself; it carries audio and video. 3. Component (red/green/blue)(red/white) two 'bundles' red=red component of video green=green component of video blue=blue component of video red=right audio white=left audio 4. VGA + (red/white) VGA=video (computer monitor cable) red=right audio white=left audio 5. HDMI (flat hdmi cable. you spent $30 on this 3 foot ****) HDMI=audio and video 6. hugs and kisses hugs=video kisses=audio (both sides)

Problem hooking my macbook to the Powerlite 62c/82c the projector


For these types of projectors if you're planning to hook it up using you MacBook ;

You will need a converter ( from VGA to DVI )
Using the VGA cable that came with the unit when purchased ;

Connect the VGA cable on the back of the Projector and on the other of the cable you will connect the converter ( VGA TO DVI ) since for MAC systems it has DVI ports for monitors not VGA...

You can purchase the converter at any Mac store or any computer shop near you..

I want to hook up external speakers to my Acer H213H for when my PS3 is hooked up to it.


What method are you using to connect to the monitor?

If you are using the HDMI -> DVI adapter it does not support sound. HDMI does, but DVI does not.

If that's the way you are set up then all you need to do is use the HDMI -> DVI adapter for your video and use the regular RCA connections for audio.

You can set the video and audio settings in the PS3 with the "Display Settings" and "Sounds Settings"

That way you just use the red and white RCA ends to connect to a speaker system, the yellow won't be in use at all.

What you would need is a VGA to RCA converter cable. Something like this. Once hooked up, use your Fn key combination to switch the view from the internal monitor on the laptop to the external monitor, now your TV.
