So this happend to me yesterday
Since i don't have a decent monitor yet(17inch 1280x1024) I decided to hook my newly build PC to the TV in the living room.
I installed windows + drivers and did some testing.
Decided to load up battlefield 4 campaign to check if it was performing well (never had played BF4).
Then my mom entered the room and she was freaked out i connected my PC to the TV, she started shouting: "you will break our TV !" Playing that stupid game on my expensive TV ! That thing is not made for that !
Try to reason with her what didn't work out at all my ignorant brother said:"t the PC will blow up the TV"
So i gave up, just to avoid my mom damaging my PC ... (from her rage)
She didn't even know u could connect a PC to a TV at all.
Its sad that my parents don't support my computer hobby ... hope I'm sure that I'm not the only one out there
