Hooking up projector to laptop with only HDMI port


The PG-F320W has a DVI-I port between the VGA/Component input and the VGA output. You will need an HDMI to DVI cable or a HDMI to DVI adapter and either an HDMI or a DVI cable. If you use the audio input of the projector, you will also need the audio cable between the computer and the projector. (Make sure to disable the HDMI as the audio playback device. In Windows, go to the Hardware and Sound Control Panel. Then go down to Sound and Manage Audio Devices. Click on the Playback tab and check your output device. Click on Start for Windows 7 and earlier, Windows Key + X for Windows 8. Then select Control Panel.)

Monoprice.com has good prices for most cables. The HDMI to DVI cables are here: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10231 .

The manual for the PG-F320W is available here: http://www.sharp-world.com/products/data_projector/pgf320w/pdf/PGF320W_ex1_en.pdf . See page 21 for the DVI cable connection information. See page 61 for video resolutions that the projector can handle.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have bought LG LCD ld310 . Can I connect my computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable Thanks Jatinder Kumar


Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

I just hooked up my HP Pavilion 9000 Laptop to my Vizio TV and put the TV on correct setting. It is not working on the TV, any ideas? I went on Display setup and kept trying to connect but it says the...


If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.

I just bought a HDMI to DVI monster cable. I went


Hi there,

what has happened is normal and you don't need extra software. You have extended the desktop. If you move your mouse off your laptop screen, it will appear on the TV. If you want your TV to show the same as your laptop, go into your system prefs, click Displays, and there should be a new tab in the middle called Arrangement. At the bottom of this window there is a check box that says " Mirror Displays"

Hope this helps

NO SOUND WHEN USING HDMI FROM PC TO HDTV (RUNNING VISTA)


When using an HDMI to DVI cable their is no audio that comes through that cable. Even if you use HDMI to HDMI most computers only have video output from HDMI. You will have to use a seperate audio cable for you to be able to get the sound to work. Depending on the output you have on your laptop you may have to resort to hooking up a pair of speakers to the headphone jack.

Hope this helps.

How to hook up a hp pavilion laptop to a hdtv


if it worked fine at some point then it should work fine now... i use hdmi to hdmi from my laptop to tv all the time dvi would only cause quality loss.

the first thing i would try would be to change your resolution on your laptop to a couple different settings. a lot of times, if its not set to one thats compatible with your tv, you won't see anything.

if that doesn't work, go to personalization and open the tab that says "connect an external display" and toy around with it. but yeah it doesn't sound like you have any hardware problems there.

hope this helps

How to play movies from computer on tv?


if your tv has vga in, then you need a vga to vga cable (like a screen wire) then change the resolution in the settings of windows (put 800X640 resolution before you plug tv so that you can know what is supported)

if it doesent then you cant do anything other than buying a video card with hdmi or dvi (with a dvi to hdmi) with a hdmi cable then plug it in (will auto detect)

HDMI->DVI cable won't work


Are you using a HDMI to DVI cable or are you using a HDMI to DVI adapter? Sometimes, though not on all products you have to go into the menu and select which out put your using for each source and whats going through it. You might need to go into your dvd player menu and tell it not to try to run audio through the cable. That way it's not trying to force a signal through the cable that cant be accepted by the TV. That might possible solve your problem for the DVD player. Let me know if it works

Hdmi/dvi


Here is the link to the user manual for the TV if you need it; http://www.haier.com/admin/en/product/upload/42EP24S-UM.pdf Check page 7 - The DVI input has next to it an audio input - DVI does not carry audio as HDMI does - you need to plug a seperate mono audio cable from your cable box to the TV at the DVI Audio input (top of page 12). The Audio needs to be in the one next to the DVI socket in order to work at the same time as the picture from the same "source" selection. Check page 18 "CATV Type" and make sure this is set to the correct one for your cable box Check page 21 that all the audio settings are logical and nothing is turned right down or muted. If none of this helps then please post back. What make and model is Your Cable box? Hope this helps :)
