Link Strife Posted September 14, 2009 Report Share Posted September 14, 2009 Hi, been here quite a few times, but this is my first post here^^ So, my problem is that when I connect my notebook to my 42" Full HD LCD TV via hdmi, can't get a fullscreen 1080p/60Hz picture output!!! I have recently switched OS from Vista Home Premium 32-bit to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I used to be able to watch Bluray's and other HD stuff in 1080p on the tv, with a smooth refresh rate. I'm guessing it used to give 60Hz, because I really noticed a difference with 25Hz. Now my notebook is working perfectly, except for this!! Tried a few different drivers, and so far when sending 1080p via HDMI, at best I can choose between fullscreen with 25Hz, or a 60Hz picture which does NOT use all 1920x1080 pixels! The TV still interprets it as 1080p though. So, I can choose to have (a)SLOW/Skipping fullscreen picture, or (b)Smooth, non-fullscreen picture. Really annoying:p My GPU is the nVidia 8600M GS. The old driver I used to use was 32-bit 175.80. This same driver for 64-bit gives fullscreen 1080p/25Hz, or a smaller 60Hz picture! (Also, my BD-playing program, Play Movie, gave the error message that it could not play the protectetd content (on both pc and tv), either because Aero was NOT enabled, or because screen capturing was not disabled. (Must be because of the screen capture)). Anyways, here are my findings so far with the different drivers: 175.80: FULL 1080p/25Hz, or SMALL 1080p/60Hz. 179.67 FULL 1080p/25Hz, no option for 60Hz. (CURRENTLY IN USE) 181.22: FULL 1080p/25Hz, or SMALL 1080p/60Hz. 190.40: I think this one would not even let me play BD Specs: GPU: nVidia 8600M GS NOTEBOOK: Acer Aspire 5920G OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit MEM: 4GB DDR2 Connection to TV: HDMI TV: Philips 42PFL3604D picture--> http://www.elkjop.no/product/lyd-bilde/tv/42PFL3604D/philips-42-lcd-tv?Selected=Specifications#tProductTabcontent ANY help would be much appreciated :) hope my only option in the end will not be switching back to vista! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
