Have you tried changing the computer's screen resolution to a lower level?

You can right-click on your Windows Desktop and then select "Screen Resolution" and adjust the bar lower than what it is set at.

I don't really understand what you are saying.
One thing that you could try, is to do a Windows System Restore to a period of about 2 days ago.
Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore

it must be a setting on the TV itself.


If you had a blueray or DVD player with wifi or network, you could use that to play Netflix on the tv too.

Yeah, what I meant was that the dvd player should have wireless or wired internet connection.

It sounds like an input problem to the TV, meaning a setting on the TV menu is at fault since it worked before. I'm a little confused myself, does the desktop show up on your TV still? If it does, their shouldn't be a problem and resolution wouldn't be a factor except the picture would look funky.

His DVD player may not have a wired or wireless connection.

Yes, that is what I said above also. It has to be a setting on the TV or cable/satalite box.

you said it was a desktop, otherwise I would have suggested that. It toggles through the various video outputs.

Glad to see that you got it to work finally.
