Macbook to Samsung LED TV?

by bsts126sabre / June 16, 2009 2:44 AM PDT

I can not seem to find a hook up in the back of my Samsung TV for the Mini-DVI Converter cable I was told that I needed. I need a little help. Does it depend on the TV for what cable you need?

Digital Audio Out (Optical)
PC IN (Audio and PC)
HDMI IN (2 and 1)

That what you needed?

In reply to: this?

so you have a couple of choices there.
The Mini-DVI adapter either converts to a full sized DVI or
it converts to a VGA cable. (NOT both)

All you need is the correct cable that will go from the DVI or VGA end of the adapter and fit into the DVI or VGA connector on the TV.

The adapter is only a few inches long and needs a cable to go with it.

I'm guessing that the PC In is the VGA connection

How's that?

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?
