Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7?
Do you have a laptop or desktop?
First, so you plug in the VGA cable from the TV to the computer, and press the Input button on the remote (top left button), then select VGA, and press Enter.
Then you can turn on the computer if it is a desktop
If it's a laptop, turn it on. Then when it's logged in Windows, press at the same time the two keys Fn and the monitor key (usually located at either the F1 to F12 key) to switch the display.
Please let me know how it goes. Thank you.
Also, click here for the tv manual on page 10 if needed for how to connect to computer.
do we need thed remote to accomplish this?
No, we don't.
Can you try my suggestions above?

It's a laptop, so use the Fn and the monitor key.
after selecting VGA, do I press "enter" on the computer? Do we need to be on a certain TV channel?
do I need to be off the computer to press the Fn keys or can I do that while I am on-line with you?
You use the TV remote
and use the Input button and select VGA and press Enter on the remote
AFter this, you can use the Fn keys now
we don't have the remote; trying to fi nd it
you can see if you can use the buttons on the TV
there is not an enter button on the tv. we have tried all the buttons there are the volume, channel, menu , input and power buttons. we have tried them all; looking for reomote
found it. now, do Ineed to turn off my computer to do the first step?
don't turn off the computer
so did you select the VGA option?
Do I need to adjust the pixel size for the screen?

yes. all we needed it the remote and to know to press enter. the screen is working! :)
our laptop doesn't have a Fn key. this is an old laptop
