It is made to play computer media out, onto a TV not to record on the computer.

When watching You Tube it stops and starts again and again

Hi,

This problem, i.e, the videos keep stopping and starting is usually due to a slow internet connection.

To resolve this issue, kindly let the video download completely before playing the video.

To do this, click the "Pause" button (shown by red arrow in the attached image) on the video bar and let the pink colored bar (shown by green arrow) fill up entirely.

When the pink bar fills up completely, click the "Play" button. (See below image)

Now the video playback will be smooth and without any breaks.

Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.

How do I connect a presario CQ60-211ds to a Philips 42pfl3704d/f7

Hi, I don't know if you have sorted it out, but here goes.
I have a slightly different model to you, but mine has a HDMI output and my TV also has HDMI, just connect the 2 together whith a cheap HDMI cable, not need to spend a fortune and you should be sorted. There is another way and that is using the monitor ( VGA Connector ), but I don't think your TV has a pc input. I have just found this while typing.

Give it a read but basically the only connection you can use is hdmi unless you have a dvi connector on you laptop.

I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse and left the laptop near the TV so i can use it from my armchair.

Let me know if this has helped.

Description---- Problems with video cards show up as intermittent system lockups when playing 3D games, small dots of color spattered across the Window desktop, the inability to run certain 3D games, and the inability to open Windows normally. All of these issues can occur because of video hardware or driver problems. Find an item below that matches your video need: For integrated video memory that is adjustable, use the following steps to change the amount of video memory (RAM) from the PC BIOS Setup:
  1. Turn on the PC.
  2. When the blue HP screen appears, press the F1 key. Entering Setup should appear on the screen.
  3. When BIOS Setup screen appears, use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced screen.

Have no colour coded holes in my lcd t.v to connect my play station 2 and have no picture at all just normal chanles and the power indicator light is on ?????????????

Check for outlets marked video in, audio in l,r on the back, side or front of your tv. The yellow ps2 plug would go into the video in, red & white would plug into the l,r audio in. You would then need to set the tv to video 1 setting in order to play. Hope this helps.

Connections to tv

The tv must have a VGA port, and you need a VGA RGB video cable, then you can connect your computer with your tv, and then do the same you do when you conenct a projector to your tv and that's it.

How do I change the TV to AUX mode in order to play DVD's or VHS's?

GOOD DAY, CARL;

To change inputs on the TV, 90% of the time, it is done on the TV's remote control. Look for a marked button; 'video' or input. Press button to desired input. Other TV's have device/input buttons and will display on the TV's screen, scroll up or down, using the arrow buttons, once on desired input press the 'enter button.
GOOD LUCK, big IRISH. Come back with model number and I can be more particular, or e-mail me at [email protected].
Good Luck again.
