Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

To play DVD's on my PC and watch them on my TV.

I have a Dell Dimension 5150 PC and a 32 inch Philips Pixel Plus 2 TV, big, heavy, silver and on a silver stand (in other words, not a slim LCD or equivalent). I recently bought a cable with red, white and yellow jacks at each end and connected my PC to my TV using the appropriate sockets at the back of each. Oddly, my PC hasn't recognised the addition of these connections? I can't find the user manual for the TV, even on the net! I am at a loss as how to best proceed from here, unless I get someone in. But that could pose another problem, do I look for a TV or a PC expert? Regards, Peter.

Sound is to low

If you feel this is not right for the tv then you need to send it back for repair or replacement. If you feel that it gets as loud as it is supposed to and you would like more volume then you will have to amplify it through a stereo system.

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader

This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.

Picture problem

You need to replace the Ymain and the buffers. This is a very common problem with this set, and its magnavox and samsung counterparts. Look throught the other solved postings for a detailed description of how to dismantle and replace. Plan on spending at least $200 on this repair. Likely a bit more.
