Q: view photos from labtop to tv monitor

I bought a 7 pin cable and hooked this to my Toshiba laptop and put the other end in my flat screen tv, hoping to view my pictures from picassa on my lg screen. Did not work, What am I doing wrong?

A: view photos from labtop to tv monitor

You probably didn't enable external monitor support on your laptop.

Right-click your desktop (in any empty space...don't click on any icons), and choose "Properties" or "Personalize". Go to Display Settings, and click on the large black box with the number 2 in it. Check the box that says "Extend Windows onto this monitor", and as long as your TV is set to the correct input, your desktop should come up on your TV.

Hello, would you please help me!,

I once had an earlier version of NetZero internet service and had absolutley no problems with it. I moved out of the country for a few years and put the computer, along with the rest of my things, in storage.

When I returned to the States I was informed by NetZero to install their latest version, which I did. Soon after installing it, I started having problems with photos. They wouldn't appear; all I would get was black with a faint outline of the picture, usually purplish dots. By the way, I've tried turning off the "TuroCharge" function that alters how pictures load. It is completely "off."

Then, my computer began having problems shutting down fully. It would not reach the "It's Safe To Turn Off Your Computer" message. On re-starting it, as it would go through the scandisc program, it would always go through the NetZero program's files hesitatingly slow. This is another reason why I think the NetZero program has wreaked havoc with my computer.

I began calling NetZero about these problems and all they could recommend was to re-install the program. I've done this about six times now.

I've now reached the point where when I pull up "Yahoo!" the search box is completely black, and images like photos don't come in. If I go to the New York Times on-line, not only do photos not come up, but if I try to view an article, the screen is deep purple. Now if you can imagine ... Read more

A:I can't view photos or much of anything else lately.

is there any way you can get rid of netzero and go with something else? i know aol is crappy but its free and has never ruined any of my computers. hope this helps you.

Hello. Right, he's my problem. I've been using my parents computer for the last few months and decided to make my own user/log-in the other day. After doing so, I cut/pasted my photos folder into my new user directory (or whatever, I'm not very techie..). I have thousands of photos, my BF is a photographer, and I can view most of them. However, in one particular folder 90% of them aren't viewable! Says I don't have permission... When I log back into parents windows, I can see the photos in my directory (as they are no longer located in theirs) but there are little gold padlocks on the ones I cannot see on my log-in. I've tried changing permissions, ownership, you name it.. I've looked for help on line and tried everything. The only thing that seems to work is if I right click on each individual photo and change things that way.. but I do have a life and this will take AGES.. Can anyone help me?

If you need more information, please ask.

Anyone remember the old way Windows would show photos in folders, a ton of thumbnails?

How do I get that back so I don't have to hit preview 500 times to find a photo?

A:How do you view photos in a folder

First thing I would do is to right-click on the folder that contains the pictures and then select Properties. On the dialog that comes up, select the Customize tab. There is a dropdown box there that you can select to tell Windows what kinds of files are in that folder, in your case select Pictures.In addition, in any folder, you can change the view and select how you want to see the files listed. In the Upper right hand area of the Explorer window there is an icon that looks like boxes with lines next to them. If you hover over that icon it will show "Change your view". If you click on the icon, each click will cycle thru the available views. On the side of the icon is a down arrow. If you click on the arrow, it will bring up a list of the various views you can select from.

For some reason the photos on our pc view too dark. It's done that since we got it. It also prints the images too dark. The images/photos are fine if viewed/printed through the photoediting software that came free with the pc (Photo Impression). If I get a photo attached with an email it views too dark also.
I'm wondering if it's Vista as we didn't have this problem (with the same photos) on our old pc which was Windows XP and I've added some to our new laptop which is Windows 7 and they view normally there too.

We've just got Photoshop Elements and whether I transfer photos from the original file on the computer or upload them from the camera to PSE they view too dark there too. However that problem I think is besides the main point - I think if I can somehow sort the original problem then PSE will be ok too.

Hey everyone, I hope this is the right area to post this.

I recently just upgraded to a new computer that's running Windows 8.1 and had all my media files (mostly photos and text documents) from the old XP computer saved on an external hard drive. I plug the external HD to my new computer and can access the drive itself, but I can't view nearly 90% of the content! Videos and music files seem to work fine, but none of the photos or document/text files will open, which are the most important to me.

The document files say "access is denied" and can't be opened and when I try to view the photos it says "Windows photo viewer can't open this picture because you don't have the correct permission to access the file location". Even when I try to move or copy&paste the files out of the external HD, it denies me.

How can I fix this problem? How do I get permission to my own files? I tried to "take ownership" of the drive...but I'm not so confident that I'm doing it right because I haven't been able to find any instructions on doing it with Windows 8.1 ... and what I'm doing still hasn't helped.

ANY help or suggestions that anyone can give me on how to get permission to view all my photos/documents again on my new computer would be awesome.

I have had issues viewing photos since upgrading to Windows 7. The message I was getting in Photoviewer was:cannot view photos in photo viewer because you do not have correct permissions. I followed the instructions in a 2007 string from TheOutcaste and ran the command: icacls *.* /reset /T /C in the folder where my photos was stored. This made it possible for me to see approximately 80 to 90 % of my photos which is GREAT. However, I still have a fairly large number of photos which are not accessible unless I go through the tedious manual task of assigning myself as the owner. I've run the command again and can see that on those photos which cannot be seen that there is a notation that access was denied. Any additional ideas on what I might be able to do in order to "release" these photos in mass...and not manually one at at time?? Thank you in advance. skyglover

Hi all,

Please help me choose tools - service provider(s) and/or application(s) - for my goals.

I'd like to start sharing privately videos and photos in some private cloud drive with a group of close people. It would be sort of electronic photo/video album. Most computers are 8" Tablet PCs, OS is Windows 8.1.

There is a question how can I view these photos/videos when one (or more) of these people is offline. The best thing would be an application which automatically caches the photos/videos which are viewed most often or "starred" or "liked" most or "rated" as best. The application would cache (for offline viewing too when there is no internet connection) those mostly viewed/starred/liked/rated photos/videos on each computer, depending on which photos/videos were watched on that particular computer.

What I plan is just keep putting all the photos/videos (probably from all the same computers) to some cloud drive, and - the best thing would be - just let the mostly watched photos/videos to sort naturally in each cache. Or maybe there is some feature to rate photos/videos (somewhat like in windows media player).

Is there a way to auto-cache some amount (let's say up to 2GB or 5GB) of the most often viewed files (for offline viewing) instead of having all of them on those devices? I'm asking this because those tablet PCs have a rather limited storage capacity (and are also limited on internet connection quite often too).

I just purchased a used Hanns-G 28" widescreen LCD monitor off eBay. Photos of the monitor before shipping show it to be in full working order. But when it arrived, it was producing a distorted screen (from BIOS to Desktop):

Bootup of WinXP (sp2)
XP Loading screen
XP startup
XP Desktop
The monitor is producing this same pattern at all times (even in BIOS), so it is not a Windows/driver issue. The pattern does not move or resize when changing resolutions. The screen image does fade in slowly (reaching the result seen in the photos), in the same zig-zag pattern, left-to-right, upon booting. The refresh rate is extremely slow (around 1fps) and the mouse pointer fades out as I move it to the right.

My video card card is a Radeon 3870 with two DVI ports. The monitor only has an HDMI port and a VGA/D-SUB, so I must use an adapter to use the monitor. I tried both a DVI-to-HDMI cable, and a DVI-to-VGA adapter, both with the exact same result. My video card is working perfectly with my 20.1" Dell (using it now), so I know it is in working order.

Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any help is appreciated.

PS: If it matters, the internal speakers also do not appear to be working, but I don't think it's related. I tried doing a "Reset" from the monitors OSD, which had no effect.

UPDATE: I connected the monitor to my cable box with the exact same result, so the fault definitely lies with the monitor and not the computer.

Hi all, I'm hoping you can help me figure this problem out.

I'm an amateur wildlife photographer and shoot photos in JPEG, RAW and TIFF. Since about 4 weeks ago, when I open a photo in Photoshop CS3, the photo appears oversaturated in green and a lot of artifacts are present. This also happens when I open photos using Windows Picture Viewer. Even photos taken a few years ago (and since processed) appear oversaturated in green. But if I open them using, for example, Faststone Image Viewer or Arcsoft Media Impression, they look fine. By the way, when viewing the photos as thumbnails in Windows Explorer or with Photoshop Bridge, they are also OK, but become green when I open them.

I've browsed the web looking for ideas / solutions but with no luck. I reinstalled Photoshop CS3 but with the same green result. So I don't know if this is a graphics card issue (ATI Radeon HD 5500) - if it was, wouldn't I see green with Faststone and Arcsoft?. Or a monitor issue? Or a hardware / software conflict.

I'm really bummed out about this because I do all my photo processing in CS3 - which I can't do now because of the oversaturation of green in the photos. Worthwhile to note that although my older (processed) photos look green on the screen, they still print out in their correct colours.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Dan

Hello, I bought a new pc yesterday, and it was running smoothly until an hour or so ago, I installed the drivers and everything was working fine until I tried to open a game (CoD WaW) and I could not play because of the spots ( they are all over the monitor), I tried to open an image with the windows's image viewer same problem, but images work fine in firefox, about an hour I started seeing the spots everywhere in windows after starting it ( the welcome screen does not have them) I fixed it by going to 16bit colors and a 800x600 screen resolution, I'm sure it's not the monitor because I tried on another monitor and same thing, I uninstalled the driver and re installed a new one from nvidia and nothing changed, but when I uninstall it it the spots disappear from windows until windows detects the graphic card and auto install it

Hello. i have a ps1 with an rca cable. id like to play it and view it on my lcd monitor, my monitor only has a dvi-d plug-in on the back. I've read that rca is analog and dvi-d is digital so an adapter doesn't exist.

Would this work?

If not please help me out.

A:Trying to play my PS1 and view it on my LCD monitor

Not sure if that's the right type of adapter since it's USB but I do know that you will need some kind of video converter box to use the game system. The PS1 doesn't support higher resolutions so it will probably look like garbage but I'm sure it's possible. Heck, the PS2 supported a max of 1080i and even that looked meh so good luck.

You could try using an RCA to VGA... something like this. Although a lot of those "converting" boxes/adapters are notorious for producing lousy output.

Once again, I am compelled to guess where to post my inquiry, as I don't know what this might be about. I'm rather in the dark, along with the monitor:

For the third time over the past few weeks, when I moved the mouse to wake the monitor a short while ago, what I got was a black screen with a blinking white cursor. I can find no way to get the video part of the monitor to appear; the keyboard is somewhat active, as things such as the Caps Lock work.

Shutting down the computer, then restarting and selecting the option to restart normally works fine; that is, the usual boot process proceeds, and then my usual programs all restart correctly.

[EDIT] I meant to run sfc /scannow before posting this missive; have now run it twice, which did not report any problem(s.)

The only thing I saw in the Event Viewer was that SABKUTIL failed to load; nor overly surprising, given that a search for this driver did not find one, not even in the Device Manger with "show hidden devices" selected. The only other entry in the Event Viewer has me quite puzzled, as it refers to an unexpected system shutdown at a time that the system did not shut down; had it done so, I'd have been presented with the usual log-in screen, which was not present today until I shut the computer down to fix the blank monitor problem, and that shutdown was well over an hour after Event Viewer appears to have logged the unexpected system shut down.

Good Afternoon dougppp, generally those monitors only require the lead to go from the machine's green connector to the monitor.

I don't believe any drivers are involved but that could be your problem.
The volume adjustment for the monitor audio amplifier could be involved.

Have you googled your monitor model and type, there is a zipped driver package on that site that you may require.

I recently connected my spare monitor an LG E2342V (1920x1080) via the DVI-D to my GV-N760OC-2GD graphics card and connected my LG 27EA83R (2560x1440) via the display port.

I done this before but both monitors had the same screen resolution of 1920x1080. This time I used the display port and both monitors use their max resolution in dual view. When I go back to single view with my 27EA83R (main display) monitor, all the icons were mucked up. It happened every time going from dual view to single view.
Is this because the second monitor is a different screen resolution?

Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Would this happen if the second monitor is the same screen resolution?

I just accidentally changed my settings on my grapics card so that I can no longer see my desktop on the monitor connected to my HTPC. My HTPC has a monitor attached to it and it also has an HDMI out from the graphics card going to an LED TV in another room. I accidentally switched it so that the desktop can only be seen on the other TV in the other room.

All I can see on the monitor is the blank Windows 7 logo (no desktop icons) and I cannot navigate back to my AMD control page to undo this.

I tried rebooting but this does not work.

Please take into consideration that I'm translating terms from my language, so the actual Win7 options names can be different.

Post edited for recapitulation of the problem.
Sometimes my cursor goes out of view (to the right). I know that the cursor is almost invisible when it hits the right, but it's not that, it's actually going far off the screen and I have to move the mouse a lot back before seeing the cursor again.
This happens because windows detects a second nonexistent monitor.
If I go to "Screen resolution" and I click "Detect", another monitor appears on the right, near the first one; and it says: "another display not detected".
Clicking on it it says:
Screen: disponible output screen for: ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series.

When I first log in, the mouse stops where it's supposed to stop. I discovered that the "bug" happens when I logoff and log in with another user. When logging off and returning to my account, if I move the mouse at the right edge, it goes off the screen, on the ghost monitor to the right.
So I have to go to screen resolution, clicking "Detect" and "OK" and then everything gets ok.

This problem is annoying because sometimes you just happen to lose your pointer.
Also, closing a fully maximized window with the "X" is annoying because the cursor goes too far and don't hit the "X" button. You have to slowly point at it, you can't do fast moves.

Are you saying that Catalyst Control Center thinks you have two monitors connected but you only have one? Strange.

Incidentally, I too have a Sapphire dual-DVI HD5770 in my machine (ASUS P5Q3). But I actually DO have two monitors... both Eizo 24" LCD's running at 1920x1200 each.

Anyway, you can certainly get rid of the extended desktop, i.e. the phantom second monitor using CCC.

Right-click on desktop, select Catalyst Control Center. Then go into Desktop Management, Creating and Arranging Desktops.

If you really do see "1" and "2" then for some reason the HD5770 thinks you have two monitors connected! Very odd.

But you can certainly disable "2". Just right-click on the second monitor icon in the lower part of the display, and select "disable".

Does that help?

Rotating arrows never stop in the photos app.
Camera is using a continuous 30% of my battery usage, but says nothing is being used in the background (all is being used whilst being "managed by windows"), whatever that means.

Hi everyone,

I have an Android phone and a Windows 8 PC I built. I took a picture on my phone and went on my computer and the photo showed up in my Photos tile. I have no idea where the picture came from because my PC and my phone aren't linked up and the photo only shows on the tile not in the app itself. I had a similar problem with my iPhone and Android because of Google+ but there seems to be no reason for this.

My Photos app on Startscreen is still showing Facebook photos that were deleted from FB. How can I get rid of them? Where are they stored?
Switching Facebook off and on in Settings didn't make any difference.

A:How to Remove Facebook Photos in Photos app?

Ah the cache strikes again......

"Try this: go to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.windowsphoto_[random characters]\LocalState\

Once there you'll find cached copies LargeTile?.jpg and SmallTile?.jpg
Delete the images you don't want (or replace them with ones you do want) then go to the start screen, turn off the live tile then turn it back on again. Hope that helps."

(Thanks to Mathew Wong for these instructions)
