Connecting PC to TV with VGA cable


Recommended Posts

I installed a graphic card for my dad in his desktop pc. I tested it on my tv(LG 32 inch tv) and it worked flawlessy. My dad took his computer home and hooked it up to his 50 inch LG tv and messed up a setting now his picture isnt "widescreen"(as in it doesnt take up the full screen) it has two black stripes on the left and right side of the screen.

I live pretty far from him so its not like i can go over and fix it for him. I tried helping him on the phone but my tips didnt seem to work.

How can he fix this?

the TV should have a "picture" button, this will toggle it between widescreen and 4:3.

The TV might only support up to a certain resolution, so you should definitely keep that in mind.

that's how my TV works, i keep it in the 4:3 instead of widescreen because the computer i have with my TV doesn't support it well (graphics go to hell).

best i can tell you without knowing the model TV he has.
