I use a 32" LCD TV for my primary monitor


ive posted about this a couple of times (i think, cant find it anywhere) where i USED TO BE ABLE to use my 32" lcd as a monitor for watching movies. i used an S-video patch cord and then ran a set of speakers from the headphone jack on my laptop...

i had a friend do a clean install for me because the laptop was all infected and screwy and now i cant watch with the TV. i can get an output, i can see the PICTURE that i use for my desktop but there are no icons or mouse pointer or system tray/tool bar...

ive also tried to use a 2nd monitor (bigger screen) plugged into the 9-pin monitor Dshell to no avail...

can someone PLEASE help me figure this out?

Hello Sir,

Well as I read, you mentioned something about "a clean install" which if that were the case, I would ask you or the person who did it: if they re-installed the graphics card driver?

You see if the graphics driver is not re-installed back after a clean install your graphics card will not work appropriately. Therefore it can't go as high of a resolution as it normally did.
