Hey, I just got a new Sanyo 20" LCD T.V and I wanted to know what I would need to set up so I can use my new T.V as my laptop's monitor? First of all my laptop isent even a year old et but it dosent have many outputs and stuff on it, all it has is a slot for Monitor, 3 usb, wifi card, printer, and ethernet jack. So The only thing i can see to use is the Monitor port. So what would i need to connect the laptop to the t.v by using the laptops Monitor port. Thanks alot for any help q:)

You didn't give any info on the LCD TV. Dose it have DVI connector on it??? If so then get VGA to DVI cable and hook it to your laptop. John

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?
