Question about Vizio 60" E601I-A3 Full HD LED-LCD TV
Dell Laptop Inspiron 6400 has ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 video card. The TV has VGA (PC) and HDMI inputs. The laptop only has VGA output (no HDMI or DVI). I can connect the laptop to Westinghouse 26" 720p LCD HDTV without. However, when I try to connect to the Vizio 60" 1080p LED TV, the resolution stays at 800 x 600 and the display stays at 8 bits only.
When you connect the vizio try changing the resolution settings on your laptop to see if that makes a difference. Could be that your video card output is not really compatible with the higher requirements of the Vizio.

Im no expert on the subject, but I use my L37 for a monitor, and use just the vga adapter. It works good as a monitor, and both dvds and my hdtv wonder tuner card look great through the vga connection. They do make adapters for dvi to hdmi. Although, hdmi also carries sound, but you wont get that out of your dvi output from your card. So you might not have sound when using that connection, as your tv may not look to the headphone type jack used for sound imput from your computer when you select the hdmi source on it. If you have speakers already connected to your computer you may not care. Also if you have a 720 p Vizio, 1366x768 is the highest resolution you are going to get out of it anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'm Not sure why you would need 2 connectios to the same monitor either. I posted 1 link below because they had several dvi to hdmi adapters. Hope that helps.
