Using a badge TV as monitor in Windows 7

So, I got my computer in XP using my Insignia TV as a monitor using a VGA cable. I have a machine of windows 7 I would like to replace the XP machine with. The windows 7 machine works very well on my screen 19 '' little but when I try to use the TV as a monitor I get no a message of the TV signal as soon as I should get to the login screen. I updated my video card drivers (the last update has been less than a month) and changed my resolution 1024 x 768 and still no luck. If I start in safe mode and disable my graphics card it will work, but then I can't play games or enjoy my video card. Any suggestions?

I'm done with an HDMI instead of VGA cable and it worked. If you do not have an HDMI output on your graphics card seems as if you were out of luck.

  • PC HP 8560w: second monitor with Windows 10

    I have upgraded to Windows 10 and my second monitor will not work. On Windows 7, I was running my second monitor with a USB 3.0 port. Apparently, 10 Windows does not support this configuration. How can I feed my second monitor in Windows 10 using either a USB 3.0 or MIC port?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm running an additional monitor in Win10 to a USB connection, but it uses a USB adapter / VGA, and to make it work, I had to install the drivers that came with the card.  Before that I did, Win10 has not even seen the monitor.

    Good luck

  • Excel on two monitors, the window is uneven

    I use Excel like this for years and never had a problem. Received a new computer with Windows 7 and Office 2010. Now, when I minimize Excel and stretch it across my two monitors, the window of excel is more horiztonally even on both monitors. In the secondary monitor, the bottom edge is higher than the lower edge of the primary monitor of 2.5 inch.

    Help, please.

    Hello

    For several years I have seen the problem that shows your image.

    You can see in the picture the monitor of the number 2 is offset, vertically with respect to the number of monitor 1.

    You can move the monitor autour images using the mouse in the same way as you would move a shortcut on the desktop.

    Place the mouse cursor on Monitor 2, hold down the left mouse button and drag the image upwards slightly until it is aligned with the number of the monitor 1.

    Click apply/OK.

    Test and let us know the results.

  • Split-screen on one of the two monitor in Windows 8

    I know how to split the screen on a monitor. Now the problem is that I have two moniotrs, when I drag a window on the edge on the left, it automaticlly take half left of screen, however, when I drag another window at the right end, the window through the right end and jump to another monitor. So as to have a program takes half left screen monitor 1, a program takes half right screen monitor 1 and one program takes full screen on Monitor 2? I'm runnning on windows 8 pro.

    I know not 'technical' solution to this problem, but I use multiple monitors with windows for years and your best bet for now is this little trick.  Find an edge where the window will be 'snap' and autosize, then positioned manually on the "inside" edges of your dual display.

  • No signal on monitor after Windows 8 logo

    I have a Lenovo H430-2558-1ZU desktop computer running Windows 8 Pro with Media Center. I used it all of a sudden the video was cut, then I had no signal on the screen. I restarted and after Windows 8 logo, I get no Signal on the monitor. Windows 8 is running because I can hear sounds from the speakers. After using this method, I started in safe mode. I uninstalled the graphics card driver Intel HD of safe mode and restarted in normal mode. It was fine for a few minutes, but then I had no signal on the screen. So I started in new safe mode and uninstalled the driver. I installed a new Web site driver for intel, but I still have the same problem. I tried uninstalling the driver for the monitor, but still have the same question. The monitor is connected to the computer via a XtremeMac HDMI to DVIHDMI port. The monitor is aViewsonic VX1945wm I used for many years. I don't think that it is a hardware problem, because my Ubuntu install works fine. I am at a loss here, IDK what to do. Help, please!

    I solved the problem. I plugged the monitor into the computer via VGA and it works beautifully. So I disconnected the VGA cable and reconnected the cable hdmi to dvi, and it is worked over HDMI since. Even after rebooting. It's a weird solution, but I'm glad it worked.
