Hello,


I can not find a similar thread, but I am having difficulties eliminating this subtle, weird visual wave effect that happens when I plug my computer into my LCD tv via VGA. It happened with my Sharp Aquos, and now it is happening with my Westinghouse.


I am using a Macbook Pro and a standard VGA cable. I do not know how else to describe it other than a static/wave/noise effect that seems to be a problem with grounding. It's not too noticeable, but I'd like to eliminate it.


I was wondering, can anyone help me with this problem?


Thank you for your time.

Have you tried another cable? and have you tried a computer monitor? You might also need to reconfigure your video card but I'm no expert in that area. Tom's Hardware is also a good source for computer related issues and they have a forum.

I have yet to try another cable. That will be next on my list. However, my mind goes more towards the idea that there is too much voltage going through my appliances.

If possible you might try a different outlet and especially one that's on a different circuit.

I'm pretty sure it's because I'm using VGA. I'm going to try an HDMI solution instead.
