    I have my TV (westinghouse SK-26H730S) hooked up as a second monitor for my computer. I have an NVDIA GeForce GTX 260 graphics card and am using a DVI/VGA converter and using the vga plug in on the tv. I bought a DVI to HDMI cord and plugged it into the tv and the video shows up for a second then will cut out and make a loud screeching sound. I have tried both HDMI spots, same thing. I hooked up my 360 into it and it worked fine. Is there some setting I need to change on my computer to make this work? (I'm running windows 7 64 bit)
