hooking up pc to tv

by AshleyWilde / June 20, 2012 4:47 PM PDT

I recently purchased a Haier 1080p Television, with PC access. Well, I can get video access, but wit using and connection the PC audio as shown, I cannot get any audio. I even tried adding coloured cables, but that was not help. I would love and appreciate any help you could give me or forward me to someone who can.

Thank you,
Ashley Wilde

Depends on both the PC and the TV. If you use HDMI, you don't use separate audio.

And, sorry, we can't see here what "as shown" means, nor what cables you used. So please tell much more details.

The TV (Cable) is on one HDMI, the BD Player is on the other and the PC is on the VGA. When I referred to 'as shown' for the PC audio, I'm referring to the round slot on the back of the TV labelled, 'PC audio'.

Without a manual I can't check out what is needed.

If the seller and maker won't support you, I'll give it a try but I can't find the model or where you shared where we can read the product manual.

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?
