VGA Connection To 61" DLP

by bjpomeroy / December 3, 2009 3:10 PM PST

I am trying to connect my desktop computer to my TV. During start up I can see it on the TV just fine. Once the computer boots and changes to the login screen the TV goes black and then says "Mode Not Supported". I have changed the resolution settings and the refresh rate to no avail. I know that the computer recognizes the TV because I have disconnected it after start up and connected to a monitor and it shows up as the default monitor. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate.

Please 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?
