Hello splackavellie_ca
One important thing to know is that the video quality displayed on the television will be determined by the connection method used to connect the computer. For the best video quality, try using a VGA, DVI, HDMI, or Component Video connection; S-Video and Composite Video can be used, but do not provide as high of a resolution. However, your connection options may be limited by the types of ports available on both devices.

You didn't provide any model numbers and that makes things more difficult. Is it a media center PC?
I'll take a stab at this TV
Model: KV42DRC800

So there's some info Sony Support, enter this(C81728 ) # in the Solution ID Number

Also look here Media center setup

Hi splackavellie_ca

I hooked up my Sony Bravia 40" widescreen LCD quite successfully with a 4metre "monster" VGA cable. I bought a 'plug to 2 socket' Y cable so I could keep all the original configuration and did the same for the audio.
As the TV was already connected to a 1000 Watt RMS DVD Home Theatre system, my PC music is now quite satisfying.
Good luck.
