Looks like you use a VGA cable.

The specs were clear on the TV but the PC only noted VGA so get a VGA cable and hook it up.

I didn't think that an HD signal would work well over VGA. I thought it would only work through DVI or HDMI. Also, what about sound? How can I get that to the Tv?

Odd. Think about VGA.

It's usually some 1280x1024 pixels. HD is 1080i or 1080p. Are you telling me that less pixels is better?

Sorry but I don't see any DVI or HDMI on that PC so I offered what could work. As to sound, a few more cables and that's done.

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
