An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.
You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html
. (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).
I hope this helps.
(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

I have an LG LCD TV...model #52LD550-UB.AUSMLFR. Was working fine last night, turned on this morning to a massive white screen. It still has sound, just on a white screen. I turned on the surround system and have picture on that using the AV1 component, but nothing when using the HDMI1 component. Tried changing the cable, thinking it was the HDMI cable that went bad, with no change. This TV is only one month old. Help!
