Cable To Connect Pc Audio Output To Monitor With Speaker

What kind of cable do i buy to connect pc audio output to monitor w/speaker? I have a "cool" monitor because it has speakers, but not so cool because now, instead of the relatively simple task of buying $8 speakers at walmart, i have to figure out how to connect the pc audio output, to the monitor speaker input, by cable. I was in walmart the other day, and i couldn't seem to find a cable that was obviously just a audio on both ends. What do i buy? Where? How much should i expect to pay for it? I expected it would be a very simple cable - where both ends looked basically like the end that you normally see plugged into the back of a pc. But no i found no such thing.

Laptop Resolution 1600x900 With 24" Monitor To Display 1920x1080

If my laptop has resolution up to 1600x900 and it connects to a 24" monitor, can i display 1920x1080 on it? The 1920 x1080 for the monitor, of course. Answer:- almost certainly you can. 1920x1080 isn't all that much more than 1600x900, and the limitation is ultimately in the screen. Most laptops have graphics cards that are capable of higher resolution than the laptop's built-in screen.

No Bootup And No Output To Monitor

When i hook everything up and try to boot, the hard disk won't even initialize and my monitor refuses to output. This immediately screams video card improperly seated to me, so i reseated the thing and got the same results on both headers. I opened the sucker up and had a look, and the small led display that usually displays a number was instead displaying "ff" on it. Also maybe to note: the video card only had digital outputs, an my monitor is a trusty old vga. So i am using a small adapter that came with the video card to hook it up. The thing was working earlier this afternoon. All i did was transport it to here. What could be the issue?

How To Connect Monitor To Laptop ?

How do i connect a monitor to laptop?

Answer:- follow the below steps:

1. Check whether your monitor has a dvi (digital) or vga (analog) port, both of which are generally built in.contact your vendor if your laptop does not have either. In this case, you can use a special adapter to connect the external monitor. These adapters are model specific and should be bought directly from the vendor. 2.connect one end of the dvi or vga cord to the dvi or vga port of your laptop and the other end to the monitor. Your laptop should automatically identify the external monitor as a new hardware device. 3. Most laptops will show the desktop on both screens by default, which is known as the mirror view. You can use function keys with common combination such as fn + f5, fn + f3, fn + f8 and fn + f9 to toggle between the two screens. Refer to the laptop's user manual for the right key combination to toggle between the displays. Alternatively, with many laptops you can also switch to the extended desktop mode. This means your desktop screen will be stretched across both the monitors. Refer to your user manual to switch to this mode.

Cannot Connect Laptop To External Monitor

I recently started having problems with my hp mini where the laptop itself would kick on but the screen wouldn't. The good people at hp told me that this is a hardware problem and that i have to send them my beloved baby. While awaiting the arrival of the box in which i was to send the aforementioned baby, i was using the computer by connecting it to an external monitor. Recently, this stopped working. I have tried hooking it up to three different monitors, and the monitor will blink at me, rudely informing me that the connection is there, it's just not working. Is this related to my confirmed hardware problem? Or is this a software problem?

Send Monitor Output To Tv With Svideo Input

I have a laptop which has a output where you would plug a monitor into it. I assume this is to use another monitor instead of the laptop monitor. What i want to do is take that monitor output and send it to my tv, which has a svideo input on it. I tried searching but i don't think the monitor connector has a name. I'm sure everyone knows what im talking about though. One of those trapezoid shaped analog monitor outputs? Does anyone know what this might be called so i can at least search for stuff like _ to svideo adapter etc

Computer Makes Clicking Noise - No Output To Monitor

I moved my computer in its original shipping box & styrofoam. It experienced freezing weather inside a moving truck along with everything else, and then spent a month in climate controlled storage upon arrival (from florida to nebraska). The pc was built by all american computers just before the company folded. It is a "purexs. "

I took it out and found the floppy drive was loose inside of it. Naturally, that concerned me. I had completely forgotten that when i installed it i didn't put screws in, just used the finger-tightness of the bay. It was secure enough to not move as i packed it, but apparently not secure enough for the long haul. I plugged everything in (dual dvi ports to the two ati x1900 xt's, power cable, mouse & keyboard) that it required to boot and powered it on. The fans all power on, and the 1st videocard fan cools down a bit as it's supposed to, but immediately there is a light clicking noise, quite rapid. The whole system lights up but the lcd monitor never registers any output - the light stays orange. The noise appears to be coming from the back of the motherboard near the power supply, which is actually inverted at the bottom of the case (due to the lian-li case's air circulation system). I slowed the back fan and tapped the cpu fan to see if that interrupted the noise at all, and it didn't. Yes, i know that's dangerous, but i've worked with plenty of computers - i don't hold the fan down a whole second, just slow it for less than a second - enough time to hear any change in the noise. While i'm a junior level pc & network technician (by trade i'm a web programmer and graphic designer - yes i draw freehand), at my old job i had tons of parts (not the caliber that is in this pc) and just swap out what's broken for what isn't, and in the worst case, repeat this several times until i find the offending part (usually i can tell).

Connect Laptop At Higher Resolution To Monitor Or 1080p Tv

Can a 15" laptop with 1280x768 connect at higher res to a big monitor or 1080p tv? I bought at 18" laptop with 1080p. It connects well to my 46" 1080p tv via hdmi (playing blu-ray disks). And it connects well with my 21" monitor at 1050. (It wont try to go above the native res of my monitor-as if my monitor is telling the laptop what its max resolution is. )

But the laptop is very heavy, and i would mostly use it hooked up to a monitor or tv. I'm thinking of returning it and getting a 15" laptop with the same specs, including the video card. But the laptop can only go to 768. But there is this 'projection only' mode that i'm guessing could go as high as either my tv or my monitor (even if it can display it on my laptop screen). What do you think? Will the 15" perform as well as the 18" when connected? Or will it constantly object to being driven at higher resolutions? (Like - what will happen when i disconnect from the monitor and its being driven at above its 'native' resolution. )

How Can I Connect To A Remote Display?

Ok, so i have two computers. A desktop with an lcd screen, and connected by hdmi to this computer i have a big lcd hd tv. Second i have my net-book. Both computers have wireless, are connected (lan), and both are running ubuntu 10. 04 lts. I often run a movie on my desktop using the tv screen as my display, and use the tv sound via hdmi. So my question is, would there be some way for me to open a movie on my netbook, and have the movie output to the tv, by using the tv as its secondary display. It would connect through wireless to my desktop which would share the tv display connected to it, and thus make it accessible to the netbook. I already worked out network sound, i have my desktops soundcard shared, so i can access it via the netbook and use it as my primary audio device, so i can get sound to play on the tv. I just want to do the same with video. Please dont give me answers such as streaming, or connecting my netbook to the tv directly. I want to use the tv as a remote display. I want to somehow share it on the network on my desktop as i did with my sound.
