Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Trying to get computer to display on my tv
\015 I'm trying to link my bush 32 inch lcd tv to my dell dimention 521 computer. they are situated 6 metres apart. there is a hdmi port on the tv but not on the dell. my local computer store advised me to use a vga to hdmi lead (2m) from the dell into a hdmi rotatable adapter then a further hdmi to hdmi lead (2m)into another adapter then the final hdmi to hdmi lead (2m) into the back of the tv thus basically creating a 6m vga to hdmi cable. using the source button i was still unable to pick up anything from the computer on any of the channels. i placed the tv next to the dell and just linked the vga to the hdmi slot in the tv to try to use the tv as a monitor but still no joy. friends said it's because i'm trying to send an analogue signal to a digital, any help would be greatfull thanks\015
You mean your tv doesnt recieve signals from your computer try using a monitor and a tv first at the same time then go to the graphic video to change it from monitor to lcd tv.
