Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I purchased a Dazzle DVDRecorder to convert our home 8mm tapes to DVD's. It seems simple enough. I plug the sound cables & video cable into our video camera and then into the Dazzle. I put the Dazzle USB cord into our computer and I also put the USB cable from my burner into the computer. You can see the video appear on the screen and it says that the DVD is burning but after over an hour of "burning", I suddenly get an error and it stops. This has happened 3 times. What am I doing wrong?

Your pc may be struggling memory and processor wise especially if you have under 1GB ram fitted, as other applications will be taking u your ram also.

So instead of burning direct to dvd drive burn the dvd image to your hard drive first,(remember about 1 hour of video takes about 10GB of hard drive space) then burn it to dvd, so as your pc is only doing one task at a time

Inow how to install a power supla for a compac cuputer


>Unplug computer from wall outlet.
>Open side panel on case.
>Unplug all cables from your hard drive(s), DVD drive(s), and cooling fans. Also, the main motherboard power cable plugged into the motherboard; it's a wide plug with numerous cables coming out of it and will be a bit hard to unplug. Do not pull on the cables themselves, grasp the plastic plug and work it off the motherboard socket. There may also be a snap catch that you have to press while pulling.
>There are 4 screws on the rear of the computer that hold the power supply in place. back those out. Make sure the power supply doesn't just fall. Usually there is a small ledge that it rests on but no guarantee on that.
>Remove the PS. Usually they just slide out, but sometimes it is a bit tricky to free it from the case if the PS hits the rear of the DVD drive; you just have to work with it.
>Slide in the new PS, mount it with the screws and replug all the cables. If you arent't sure, label the cable plugs and where they go with bits of masking tape, it will help you remember which cable goes to which socket. Check on the rear of the new PS, there may be an on/off switch. If there is, turn it on. Do not get confused with the 120/240 USA/European converter switch! Leave it on 120v for American power.

How do i connect to an hdtv ?


You're going to need to connect a cable supported by BOTH the PC and HDTV. Check your HDTV's jack panel or manual. List the types of Input jacks it offers. The HDTV will likely have Component, Composite, DVI, HDMI and maybe even VGA jacks. Do the same for your PC. It likely has one or two Video Output jacks. Typical Video Outputs are DVI and VGA. The VGA type has been standard for years. It consists of a total 15 pins in 3 rows. The DVI has a number of pins, but most noticeable is a wide tab at one end of the jack.

If your HDTV has a jack that matches one of those found on the PC, you're in luck. Purchase a cable that will connect them - this would be either a VGA cable or and DVI cable. Nearly any inexpensive VGA or DVI (Digital Video Interface) cable 6 ft or less will do, but the better cables cost a bit more and when the distance is increased, the quality (or lack thereof) really becomes visible - especially on the lager HDTV screens.

If you want the sound to go to the TV speakers or elsewhere, you'll need to get a cable with a 3.5mm stereo plug (or whichever type your PC has - but that's the most common) to RCA or whatever the audio input jack type is that is associated with the video input you chose. The audio input must be the one associated with the video input - other wise you will not hear the audio on input 4 while watching input 3. The PC audio out is analog, so do try to put the signal into a digital input.

If you don't have a matching video input jack, you'll have to purchase an adapter or new video card with jacks that match your TV. Do not buy simple adapters that change VGA to DVI as they will not convert the actual analog VGA signals to Digital Video signals expected by the HDTV's DVI jack. The best bet is to buy a modern video card supported by your computer's mother board and OS that has a fair amount of memory (512 MB is a good start). If your HDTV has HDMI jacks and you wish to play the sound from the HDTV's speakers, get a card with HDMI output and buy an HDMI cable. It will send both the sound and video to the HDTV for you.

You can read a nearly endless list of articles about HTPCs aka "Home Theater Personal Computers" for ideas and deep discussions about everything from soup to nuts to implement, design and set up on google.

I hope this helps - good luck!

LG Studioworks 552V monitor incompatibility problem.


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. Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

How do i use my computer and pc to tv at the same time


Hello,
Connect the computer to the TV
1. Through an S-Video cable or
2. A VGA cable,
depending on the input option of you TV, and the output options of your computer.
Then from Graphic properties, extend your desktop to a TV if S-Video, or to a second monitor if VGA cable. For older TVs resolution on computer screen may have to be set to 800x600.
Hope it helps.

No sound on my dell optiplex 330


Unless you have headphones, you need speakers, preferrably amplified speakers.
Another way the address the issue is to use a cable to connect your computer to your home stereo if it has an auxilery input (aux/cd/tape input) then all you need is a cable with two male RCA plugs on one end and an 1/8 inch stereo plug on the other end.
The 1/8th inch plug goes into your computers' sound "out" and the rca's go into the aux/cd/dvd "IN" on the stereo.
this cable can be purchased for under 10 dollars at walmart, though amplied speakers wont be much more expensive.
Hope this helps you decide which direction to go..
Regards..
