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.

I just purchased a 52 inch phillips tv and the stand that the tv sits on adds 2 inches which doesn't allow the tv to fit in my entertainment center. What can I do?? I need a shorter stand...

Just take off the stand altogether if you can lay the TV close enough to a solid vertical support.

My 47'' Philips spent about a year without a stand sitting on a desk and leaning on a wall.

It's heavy enough and as you approach to completely vertical position its main force will be pointing down, not forward.

If you can't lean it on anything solid or if it doesn't sit well while in an entertainment center...not sure what I'd suggest....short of adjustable wall mount stands...

Dell Dimension 5150 Boot Problems!

You can probably try two things here.

1) Go to the BIOS and reset the defaults.
2) Clear NVRAM from your Dell computer. Here is how you do it.
