    Pc to TV via HDMI

    Thanks, Nigsy, for the response. The 2 suggestions you made are confusing to me as I've never had to do them before. The Lenevo worked fine a month to six weeks ago, (I seldom use it, only when visitors are here), but now it doesn't work. I have a 25' HDMI cable that I've used for a couple of years. Could HDMI cable end be bad? Or Lenovo input be bad? I have a 4 year old 42" Haier TV that is seldom used and only for the HDMI. No idea what to do next.

    Pc to TV via HDMI

    HDMI1, when chosen, Leads to a blue screen. PC is set on Netflix with a movie. HDMI2 does the same. These 2 are from the TV. Only one HDMI port on the Lenovo. F keys have no symbols. There was no option for "output device" in the properties graphic.

    Yes, there are four, but we have always used HDMI1. And there is only one on the Lenovo.

    Pc to TV via HDMI

    Years back the Pit helped me with my first HDMI setup. I've used in many times up to this last weekend. I plugged the HDMI cable into the TV, changed setup in TV from TV to HDMI1, Plugged HDMI cable into PC (Worked fine before), set PC for Netflix and started feature, but no picture on TV. Was there a setup on the pc that I should have changed. It's a Lenovo. Thanking you in advance fro any help. rgsmile
  5. Before I can do this I have to have the right install disk. I've kept many over the years and this is bad in my case as I cannot read the Product Key off of the label on the PC. If I use the product key listed on the install disk envelope I'm afraid Microsoft will not go for it. I can read a few letters but can't find any to match and on a disk. I've given away so many Win 7's that I probably gave away the wrong install disk with the right code. Before I wipe this pc's system and reinstall it, where can I find the product key in the internal pc. I seem to remember that years back someone asked this. Win 7 64 bit. I also have a Win 7 32 bit to re-install. Thanks in advance for your help. rgsmile <>

    connecting HDMI PC to TV

    It turned out to be a display setting. It was showing a 1 and a 2 and my friend had me click around in display and then the 1 and two were merged and that took care of it. Thanks for the help. It was the posts here that got my friend thinking about solutions.

    connecting HDMI PC to TV

  8. Try this. It worked for me, but not sure if same circumstance. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3135445 Direction: Method 2: Microsoft Download Center Select either: All supported x86-based versions of Windows 7 – If you are running 32-Bit Windows. All supported x64-based versions of Windows 7 – If you are running 64-Bit Windows. Click on Download the Package Now, when you find out what Bit Windows you are running. After downloading it, DO NOT run the package yet. Please reboot the computer, then the first thing you are going to do is then run the packaged you downloaded. Once you installed the packaged, it will ask you to reboot the Windows again. Once computer is rebooted then click start button. Click all programs Find Windows Updates Then select Check for Updates.

    Mouse('s) dead after start up.

    Thanks, Earl-in-Wa, for all the attempted help. The fix is way over my head. I'm going to pull the hard drive and retire the PC. Thanks everyone for trying to help. rgsmile <>

    Mouse('s) dead after start up.

    Tried it, no luck, in fact now my monitor will not light up. It's on as far as the on-light goes. but the screen is black. control/alt/del, enter, nothing makes it light up.

    I hit the Logo Key and nothing happens. No change to anything.

    Mouse('s) dead after start up.

    Without a mouse, how do I get to device mgr. and select anything? Unless there are key-shortcuts which I know nothing about. Thanks though.

    Thanks, Nigsy, for the response. Yes, USB connected. I'll have to see if one of my neighbors has a PS2. I plugged in a memory stick and a popup stated the drivers were not installed, or something like that.
  15. Hi All! Pc's have been behaving themselves until now. I have an older Compaq Presario with Win 7 Pro. I turned it on last night and again this afternoon and the number of mouse's I tried, none of them work at all. Cursor sits in the same spot as when PC booted. I don't use this pc very much but it has been getting different bugs as time goes on. It freezes a lot in the lst hour it's turned on, but then it pretty decent. Please help with the mouse problem if you can. Thanks in advance. Say a prayer for Florida, Haiti and Bahamas.
