* Original title: HDMI Signal

Thank you very much

Hi David,

Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum!

According to the description of the problem, it seems that you are unable to get the signal when you connect the TV to HDMI port.

I will certainly help you with this issue.

Here are some steps that you can try in order to solve the problem.

Step 1. First you need a video cable to make the physical connection. For a better image quality, you need to connect the computer to the TV using standard VGA ports or via DVI to HDMI Cable provided your TV supports these ports.

Step 2. Open thedisplay settings' ' in your Vista computer and Activate the output to the TV screen. You can reflect the content of your computer on the TV or extend the display as a double screen control.

Step 3 Pick up your TV remote and switch to "External inputs" in the menu. You need to change the value by default "Video 1" to a different selection which may be "HDMI 1" or "video 2" depending on how you made the connection. "

Important: Make sure you connect the cable to the TV before turning on the computer, because sometimes it may not recognize the external display.

You may also change the resolution of your TV screen using the display settings in your panel of control remains the image may appear distorted.

  • Sometimes see static on television when switching to the Apple TV HDMI port

Sometimes it clears if I press the home button or menu on Apple TV, sometimes I need to unplug the HDMI one cable and then reconnect again.

  • I used to get the Blue error screen when you connect to the wide I did the registry clean, but now, when you connect the computer stops with no error message.

    How can I fix it? or what is wrong now?

    Hi Stelana,

    If I understand correctly, the computer turns off when you want to disconnect.

    This behavior may be caused by this security software on the computer, or the computer might be infected with the virus.

    To refine the question, I suggest you try the following steps:

    Step 1: Disable the security software and test, follow the steps mentioned below

    Note: Activate security software once it's all done.

    Because this problem occurs after cleaning registry, critical registry keys may have been changed.

    Some programs available for free on the Internet may contain spyware, adware or virus. Only download and install programs from software publishers that you trust. Even if the website, that you download the program trust, you must also trust the Publisher of the program. For more information, see when to trust a software publisher.

  • Can not see the security headers when you connect the OSB header

    Hi all

    I have a proxy service which I enclose GOSA oracle/wss_username_token_service_policy policy

    I test the OSB project proxy service in the SOAP-ui and when I pass the user name and password in the security header, be invoked successfully. So far so good.

    the entrance of SOAP I'm passing to the proxy service is as below...

    < soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv = '' xmlns:bpel = "" >
    < soapenv:Header >
    < soapenv:mustUnderstand wsse: Security = "1" xmlns:wsse = "" >
    < wsse: UsernameToken WSU: ID = "UsernameToken-4" xmlns:wsu = "" >
    WebLogic < wsse:Username > < / wsse:Username >
    < wsse:Password Type = "" > eu1 < / wsse:Password >
    < / wsse: UsernameToken >
    < / wsse: Security >
    < / soapenv:Header >
    < soapenv:Body >
    < bpel:process >
    < bpel:input > String1gfhyg123 < / bpel:input >
    < / bpel:process >
    < / soapenv:Body >
    < / soapenv:Envelope >


    within the stream of messages of proxy service, I log the header as $header, but I don't see the username and password that I'm passing for a request in the log file, the header is seen empty element something like below...


    < soapenv:Header some names matter > < / soapenv:Header >


    In the PS transport configuration tab, I put 'Yes' to get all headers, even I can't see the user name and password.

    Help, please.

    Thank you.

    So I can't have the password in the message flow?

    Would you really? Will vulnerable OSB security and therefore only the user name and optional directors are included in $inbound.

    In addition, why the username and password are not observed in the $header?

    $header holds the SOAP headers, while the security headers are not part of the SOAP headers, and therefore, these are not included in $header.

  • Message: this device could better work with usb 2.0 when you connect the USB device.

    Original title: USB 2.0

    I get the message "this device could better work with usb 2.0", how do I change 1.0?

    I get the message "this device could better work with usb 2.0", how do I change 1.0?

    To answer your question directly: you replace with USB 1.0 (most likely USB 1.1) USB 2.0 by the purchase of new equipment.

    If you have a desktop computer, you can buy an internal with several Sockets USB 2.0 card.

    If you have a laptop, you can get a card with 2 ports USB PC Adapter 2.0

    Before you buy anything, however, if you have a desktop computer, it is possible that some (but not all) of your taken USB is 2.0.  Open the Device Manager (start > run > devmgmt.msc > OK), click on the + sign next to the category "Controllers of Bus USB" and watch the 'Host controllers' listed there.  If any host controller is 'enhanced' then you have at least one (and probably 2) USB 2.0 taken somewhere on the computer.

    Which driver in Windows 7 (64 bit) would be better if you have a Microsoft Basic optical mouse USB that connects to the PC via a PS/2 adapter?  Would you go with recommended Microsoft USB Driver or driver for this specific mouse PS/2?

    You should check with the software (s) itself.  PS/2 ports are being "gradually" and most advanced mouse drivers are declining the PS/2 ports.   The latest Microsoft Intellipoint drivers are "supposed" does not support PS/2 ports.

  • When you connect the USB cable on a HP Officejet 4500 desktop computer?

    OK, you will understand that I am technically challenged. I look around the back of this thing and not been able to find a usb port. It takes a different usb port. This diagram in the manual is very cute, it does not show what is what. Some of us don't know a * beep * thing about computers but can follow the detailed instructions.

    Is it possible that you can show what looks like this single cable or just go to the radio Shack, I hate this place.

    You must have a printer like this USB cable.

  • RH9 files don't get renamed when you rename the project

    I need to change the names of a few projects. I went to file > rename projectand changed one of their names. I chose the new name to display in the header and said Robohelp to create a new directory with the new name.

    As I'm looking in the project, I noticed that the default Index names and the table of contents by default have not changed.

    Where can I change these?

    I had to think about it for a minute because Peter does not specifically indicate I have to right click. I didn't do it in Windows Explorer to the file level, which was what I assumed he meant. I found it, for all those who come along later. You go to the project manager and expand the Index folder, then right-click on the name of the default Index file. Even with the table of contents.

    Thank you, Peter.
