Okay, when i connect my laptop to my lcd tv, dunno what the cable is called, but its one of those with pins, not the round s-video. It works nice for about 10 mins after which i get blue screen which i dont have time to read before it reboots. Sometimes before the blue screen i get a popup informing that the graphic drivers has seized up. The problem started after the first time, when it worked fine. What happened the second time was that i connected the cable before the comp had booted, it acted weird and i rebooted before widows had started. The guide that came up the first time, giving me options like using the tv monitor instead of the ordinary did not start the second time, so the only option i have is to extend the screen to the other monitor. I play films and then crash.
What do i do?

You can find out the model of the laptop by hitting

Start > Control Panel > Classic View(LEFT hand corner) > SYSTEM (Not System Security)


Hope that helps!!

You will also find a sticker on the bottom (underside), with the model number and other details.
