Most modern TVs and computers can be connected easily, but there are a few issues to be aware of.
Displays and Display Devices
Displays, monitors, screens … the output device on which your computer displays its activities and results, include LCD, CRT and whatever technologies they think of next.
It’s not difficult to shut down a machine if you can’t see its screen — as long as you plan ahead.

Adjusting the brightness of a monitor or display can often be done right on the display itself. Sometimes it’s also possible to adjust the brightness in software.

“No Signal” is a message coming not from your computer, but from your display device, indicating that it has nothing to display. I’ll review possible causes.

It is common to use an external screen, or even a projector with a laptop. More than likely you can set up your TV using the same connectors.

Computer monitors are smart devices these days but they too can fail. It’s not always your PC showing an error, and that message on your monitor might be from the monitor itself.
Screen resolution is a simple concept, but when combined with the myriad ways that Windows can be configured, it can quickly become confusing.
It usually means your desktop settings don’t match your video card’s or your monitor’s capabilities.
