Unhappy Issue connecting laptop to hdtv

Hi, can anyone help me?

I'm having problems connecting my laptop that has vga output to my hdtv's hdmi input.

I am using a vga-dvi converter and a dvi-hdmi cable, but when I connect it and change my hdtv source to hdmi, it shows a message "No signal".

I try many attempts changing monitor's resolution, but it shows that error in all resolutions.

Dell Inspiron 1520
Intel Core 2 Duo T7600
2GB RAM
256 MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 8600M GT
15" 1680x1050 XBRITE Screen
23" Samsung LN-T2332H

I bought a new Element 26" HDTV on Black Friday. The native resolution for the TV is 1366 x 768 (16:9). I am trying to connect it to my Dell laptop which is Intel 945 chipset and does not allow me to choose above resolution. What should i do to set the above resolution? I tried PowerStrip but that does not work with Intel graphic cards. Thanks in advance.

Try 1024x768 or or 1280x768. They should be an option. See what looks/works best.

I recently ordered my Dell, and just learned that this compatibility issue exists with the nVidia 8600M GT card, also.

I'm hoping there is a driver update in the near future to correct the problem...

On the DELL and like most laptops you have LCD, Monitor and TV drivers that allow you to switch between the 3 settings plus S-Video out for direct TV or LCD Data Projector. I would first try 800x600 @ 60Hz and see if that works. If that okay then move up to 1024x768 @ 60Hz Check to see if you video onboard on a laptop can support the max resolution if you have one of those laptops that have widescreen format. 1440x900 or less.


Click on start
click on control panel
click on display
click on settings
click on advance

If you have the Intel intergrated graphics then your limited to the range the car can display. Powerstrip can't do anything more that your card and driver will allow.

I have a philips 32" HDTV and i can get it to display perfect only at 1024x768 any other resolution higher like 720p (1280x720) just makes the screen turn white then just go blank.

Any ideas? Im using a DVI to HDMI adapter and connecting the tv that way to my Radeon 9100 with the latest drivers.

Suggest making sure the refresh for your video card is set to 60hz not optimum. That should get you [email protected]

Second suggestion would be to get powerstrip and cut and paste the desired modeline from your moninfo.

ive tried both of your ideas with no success.

powerstrip didn't change a thing and i did paste the modeline in and same screen.

1024x768 is the only working one it seems but my xbox 360 has no problem giving my tv 1080 or 720p.


wish there were something else i could do.

I have my computer connected to my Insigna 37" LCD HDTV via the VGA port. The problem I have is that there is ghosting, a faint double image. My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200. Does anyone have any idea what can cause this, and what I can do about it? The resolution I am using is 1360x768.

Question PC VGA to HDTV DVI-I?

Here is my problem. I hope someone here can help me solve it.

I would like to use my 32 Sharp LCD HDTV with my HP Media Center TV PC, which is currently running Windows Media Center XP sp2, but soon to upgrade to Vista Home Premium, see specs below. Because the computer does not have a DVI output, and the TV does not have a VGA/RGB input, I am at a loss.

When I use a VGA cable with a VGA to DVI adapter at the TV side, I get only an intermittent flashing barely recognizable red and green computer screen picture on the set. The input indicator in the upper right corner of the screen says Analog PC Input. When I use a DVI cable with a VGA to DVI adapter at the PC side, I get nothing at all, just black, on the TV screen.

The computer refresh rate is set to 60 Hz and I have been able to use a 16:9 ratio Zenith LCD HDTV (with an RGB input) successfully for the last year.

What is the best solution for me? A new graphics card for the computer? A VGA to DVI converter? Or is there just a setting I am missing? Thanks so much for any help or suggestions!

Probably the easiest way to get your DVI output on the PC is to get a new video card. I just upgraded my HP media PC with a Nvidia 8500 PCIe card from newegg for about $80. It has both a DVI and a HDMI output on the card as well as adapters for VGA and component outputs. It is a low profile card. See: MSI NX8500GT-MTD256EH GeForce 8500GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Silent Heatsink Video Card - Retail The 8500 comes with all of the hardware accelerators for video to play even Blu-ray and HD DVD material. You might also want to check out a Blu-ray drive for your PC as well.
