brokenOps Posted August 15, 2006 Report Share Posted August 15, 2006 Ok, after searching the forums for several hours and trying everything I could I turn to you guys for help. I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 with the GeForce FX go5200 running on WinXP. For a while when I tried the S-Video Out (using a Hot Key I had set up), everything worked great. Using an S-Video cable and an RF Switch I could use a TV to watch downloaded movies (legally). After a week or two I started to get the nView Hot Key Error stating "This hot key requires that both the TV output AND either a CRT or LCD is connected". After checking to make sure all the connections were properly made I tried over and over agin with the same results. I have tried installing various driver for my nVidia card (67.66 with Larry's INF, as well as others). After installing & rebooting everything worked beautifully... That is until I had to restart my system again. After XP loaded again every time I'd try to "Toggle to TV" I'd get the same error. So once again I re-installed the driver, rebooted and it worked! That is until I rebooted. To watch a movie from my PC to my TV I'd have to re-install the driver, reboot, re-configure the Hot Key and then "Toggle to TV" every time. That is until now... Now I can't even get anything but the error, I have reformatted the HD, installed a fresh version of XP (with all the updates), installed all the latest drivers for my system to no avail... My Question: Will throwing my laptop off a cliff at 200+ ft make me feel any better or should I try Thermite? :) I have included the log below. PS - Is it possible for the S-Video cable to be causing this? or perhaps the RF adapter? LaptopVideo2Go_LogFile.txt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
