Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Can i use my hdtv as a moniter - Computer Monitors


Answers :

If your computer has composite or an hdmi connectors and you have the correct vga to either hdmi and or composite adapter and enough cable length then yes.
(note some fiddling with proper supported display modes on your computer and a video card capable of supporting those modes may be required.) see your adapters documentation for detailed specs on the exact modes supported.
Usually yes, as long as there is a VGA input on the HDTV. (Its a port that looks identical to the one u plug ur monitor to on your computer (and on your monitor)
