Video Cable Customized

Re: Video Cable Customized

I need a Video Cable Customized. From the PC to a 30" Flat Screen. The PC is in a conference room. The Flat Screen is mounted on the wall in the center. The PC Video Cable Customized needs to be at least 10' but better for it to be 25'.

What is the longest a Customized Video Cable can run from the back of a HP PC to a Monitor?

You prefer Radio Shack or another online store to order a Customized Video Cable?

Without knowing what connections are on the TV, how would one figure this out?

The TV has the standard VGA VIdeo cable connection. And I found the Video cable. Thanks.

Somewhere about 10 feet.

VGA starts to get wonky. If you don't like what you see try low settings like 640x480 then move to those VGA extenders you see.

Sorry I couldn't guess the connections.

<<Sorry I couldn't guess the connections>>

That is OK as I only needed the length INFO. All video cables in the back of the PC has standard Video Male / Female connections.

You'll soon find out if you try some 25 foot VGA cable.

Just trying to get you the right stuff.

The cable only needs to be about 10' so there is no need to test a 25' cable.

"Longest" is the key word.

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?
