Connect Dell Dimension 3000 to Sharp Aquos LC-42D64U

by ponty17 / November 28, 2009 11:05 AM PST


How do I connect my Dell Dimension 3000 to my 42inch Sharp Aquous (model LC-42D64U). The Sharp Manual says to use the Monitor input and add an audio cable connection. While I understand that, wouldn't I lose my desktop monitor and external speakers? What do I do?

Online, I've read about DVI / HTMI cables, and connectors, etc and all is not something I undertstand at all.

The computer is about 10-15 feet from the screen.

Please let me know what to do. I need your help!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
