I have a laptop that i am trying to connect to a 42" widescreen DLP Samsung HDTV. the tv only has s-video, component, rca inputs.
my laptop has a vga out with a max resolution of 2048x1536. which has been tested on a regular crt monitor. how can i get the best resolution- s-video is totally crappy.. as the laptop only outs a 800x600 resolution for s-video and it makes you want to bite your foot off. please help or i wont be able to drive for the lack of feet. and then i wont be able to go to work. and then ill have to sell the laptop to make rent, then i wont be able to come to cnet again cos i wont have a laptop...
I am trying to get the best possible quality picture out of my computer onto a large flat screen.
I have a Dell Dimension 9150 with a 256MB PCI Express ATI Radeon X600 S Hyper Memory video card. I am using a DVI-HDMI cable to go into a Philips 50PF9830A 50" Plasma Monitor. The image looks awful. I can get 800x600 resolution but then I get a green flickering line along the left side of the screen. If I try a higher resolution the text is so blurry it make you sick. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the best picture on the TV? Is it my video card? My cable? Price at this point is no object, if I need a $500 video card to make it work I will get it but what am I looking for in a video card to optimize the output to a large Plasma screen?
I have a Dell Dimension 9150 with a 256MB PCI Express ATI Radeon X600 S Hyper Memory video card. I am using an S-Video cable, because I must go 50', going into a Philips 42PF9830A 42" LCD Monitor. The image looks awful. I can get 800x600 resolution but it is very blurry. I understand that the cable is not ideal but if anyone else can tell me how to make he 50' gap I am all ears.
Both TV's lack a VGA or DVI input. They have RCA, Component, S-Video, HDMI, RJ-45 and USB inputs only.
Thanks for any suggestions.
