I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

what is the make and model of your computer?

usually pressing the "Fn" key + the key marked with the monitor will toggle the display.  Do this before the Windows splash screen

I assume you want to watch TV on your PC
You will need a TV tuner card.  There are tons on the market.
Once that is installed you shold be fine.  You may need to adjust the screen resolution however

I just went through this, and the best box I found at the cheapest price was a new item on EBay, I can tell you for a fact that the output is great, and you only have to turn the box and the monitor on, nothing else is needed, no computer.   Here is their wesite, same price as on Ebay, best deal you  can find -

these comments are good, but many TV tuners (and DVDs with VGA out) use output with 50hz frequency but many LCD monitors will refuse to work with frequencies below 60hz (interlacing could be a problem too), so if you want to buy one check it's resolution and frequency and check if your LCD accepts that (i have an old cheap TV tuner that works that way, it works great with my old VGA monitor but if i connect it to a LCD it says "out of range")
