The Samsung TXS3079WH is a high-definition TV with a 30-inch screen and two types of ports for using the component as a monitor with a computer. Older computers with an S-video port can connect directly to the Samsung TV's S-video port. Newer PCs with a high definition media interface (HDMI) port can connect with the Samsung's HDMI port. Either connection takes less than a minute

Turn off the Samsung HDTV and the PC or laptop.
Plug in one end of either an HDMI or S-video cable into the corresponding port on the PC or laptop, usually on the rear of the tower on a desktop or back edge of a laptop.
Connect the plug on the other end of the cable to the corresponding port on the Samsung TV. The single HDMI port is on the back connection panel. The S-video port on a TXS3079WH is on the left side of the cabinet.
Turn on the equipment.
Press the "Fn" key along with the "F" key printed with a screen icon on the computer keyboard to change the video output. The combination varies depending on the computer model and brand. If the "F" key does not have a screen icon, look instead for the label "LCD/CRT" and press that "F" key.
Press the Samsung remote control "Source" button in the upper right corner repeatedly until the computer desktop appears on the HDTV display.
