    PC to tv help

    supposed to do a live video presentation today at 11. got the camera running through my old dell. hooked up the video cable to the tv and computer but no image on tv. tv is on and set to proper source (pc).

    before this would always just work automatically, but now i have no idea what to do. i normally use a mac so troubleshooting PC's is not my bag.

    is there some obvious step i am missing?

    help!

    Do you have an HDMI output on your pc, and input on TV? If so, plug and play pretty much.

    Check your computer settings. I know I had a similar problem and I had to set the display to projector or something. I have a MAC now so I can't check.

    Did you hook up the connection between the TV and the computer before booting the computer up? Sometimes it doesn't recognize auxillary monitors after boot up. Try rebooting after it is all connected.

    If this is a laptop there should be a function key to switch between video outputs.
