How to Connect a PC to an LG LCD by DVI


Computers can be connected to a variety of external monitors. LG is a company that produces LCD monitors and flat-panel televisions that can be connected to your PC. These monitors or televisions are especially desirable because of their DVI input. DVI was introduced in 1999 and has emerged as a standard digital display system that allows the display of high-definition content. Connecting your PC to an LG LCD display is not difficult if you have the right equipment.

Things You'll Need

  • PC
  • DVI cable
  • VGA to DVI converter (optional)
  • LG LCD display
  • Turn off your computer and LG LCD monitor before connecting any cables.

  • Determine whether your PC has a DVI output jack. Some newer PCs come equipped with this jack, but many do not. Typically, older PCs have a VGA output. If you have a VGA output, go to step 3. If you have a DVI output, skip to step 4.

  • Plug the VGA-to-DVI adapter into your PC's VGA output jack.

  • Connect the DVI cable from the computer into the LG LCD monitor's input jack.

  • Turn on your computer and LG monitor.

  • If you are using a laptop, select the LG LCD display as your monitor; if you are on a desktop, the monitor should automatically be recognized. To make this change on your laptop, right-click on the desktop and open "Properties." In the "Display Properties" menu, choose "Settings." Choose your external monitor, then click "Ok".
