kwl Posted July 10, 2006 Report Share Posted July 10, 2006 Ok, so here's the deal, I have a DELL laptop (Latitude C840) with Geforce4 440 Go video card. Recently I decided to try to hook up my TV as a secondary display (sole purpose of which would be to display the full screen video overlay on TV, to watch Movies). So here's what I did - went out and bought Monitor to Video adapter (pic below): Then hooked it up to the laptop and TV, went to the card advanced settings, pressed clone and it displays a distorted white snow/noise on TV. So I went and checked the secondary display properties and it wouldn't let me switch (it says Analog Display and the checkmarks next to digital display and TV are not accessible) I spent over 2 hours trying to figure out the ###### thing and it doesn't seem to work... All I get on TV is distored white snow/noise. Another thing is I tried to update my drivers, but it wouldn't accept any other drivers than from DELL - BIOS 4.17.00.55.41 - nv4_disp.dll 188.8.131.5258 On my desktop have a Geforce 4200Ti with S video output, so that worked flawlessly hooking up to my bedroom TV, however I really need to get the laptop hooked up to the living room big screen, I already ran the RCA cables, set it up, I just need it to get to work. Any advice from techies out there? :) It's the first time I'm stumped on what to do in 4 years :) Thanks for any useful input in advance!
