  1. Using TV as computer monitors


    Hello!!!


    I just bought 2 Insignia 24" TVs to be monitors. I use a Dell Inspirion 15 7000 I think Gaming Laptop and are using these as an extended display. The video quality is amazing, however, I cannot get it to be the right resolution to have the text and eveything else be more sharp and clear like my laptop. I attempted to custom scale as well as tried everything almost everything in the settings for the TVs itself and the resolutions in the display settings. Help?

    :)

    How to connect TV to computer?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    In order to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the details mentioned below:



    • When you say, “one works & the other doesn't” What happens when you connect the TV to the computer?
    • Do you see any error message/code? If yes, what is the error message/code?
    • What is the make and model of the TV and computer?


    If you are connecting the TV as an external monitor, you may refer the article

    Set up dual monitors on Windows 10
    .



    You may also refer the article on
    Troubleshoot external monitor connections in Windows 10
    .



    If you are connecting both the computers to the TV with different HDMI ports for switching, you may also want to check the HDMI port settings in your TV.



    Let us know the results, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,
