Inspiron 1720 to HDTV hookup

by miboiler / March 21, 2009 5:03 AM PDT

Inspiron 1720 with a blue ray dvd drive and Vista Home. I am trying to hook to my Sony Bravia KDL26S2000 TV. I have a S Video connection but I understand it will not carry the HD signal.

Svideo will work

It will work fine. It might not be as super as on your computer screen, but you probably won't notice much of a difference. If you want a better HD experience, buy a Bluetooth DVD player for the tv.

S-Video doesn't support HD. You'd need either HDMI or component video cables.

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?
