Need help: cable to conect TV to computer screen
 
Hi, I'm new here. I want to know is there such a thing that you can buy to view what you see on your computer monitor to see it on your TV screen?Like is there such a cable to do this? I'm trying to view some movie files i have on my pc on my big screen 42 inches. Thanks :)

Beware it states your graphics card must have TV out for this to work...I didn't buy one, i'm looking now for a cheap graphics card with an S-Video connection

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, I am a total noob and I have no idea whatsoever what any of that means. To be more specific, the TV im trying to view this on is a plasma 42 inches. Can you explain to me what any of that means?

whats the model and manufacturer of the tv? A lot of flat screens come with vga ports on the back so you can use any computer to hook up to it

As most large screen LCD and Plasma TVs have a HDMI port, you will need a DVI to HDMI cable like this one: HDMI/DVI-D Cable.
Some even have a DVI input, so a standard DVI to DVI cable will work.
Remember that it will only transfer video, no sound.
