✔ Best Answer
So then, there is a VGA port on the TV? You are using a VGA to VGA cable? If you have both integrated graphics (On:MBoard) and an add in card, be sure to connect to the add in card. Some MBoards will allow the use of both with some series of add in Graphics cards. Also verify the resolution you are sending is one that the TV can process.

Have you tried rebooting the computer with the TV connected.

Just to be clear, "reboot" means to simply restart the computer. For some reason, some people think "reboot" means to reinstall the operating system.

"what is a add in card and how do I get one"

No one is telling you to get an add-in graphics card, but if you already have one, the monitor cable needs to be connected to the card. Also, why are you using VGA? Is it because your computer doesn't have HDMI?

Are you hooking up the TV in place of the monitor or are you attempting to use both? What is the screen resolution of the TV - 720p, 1080p, or 4K? How about posting the make/model of the TV & computer so one of us can look up the specs.
