I've been using my laptop for months now, connected to my HDTV as a monitor via VGA cable, and it's been great. But as it's stuck with the crappy built-in graphics, I decided to switch to using my desktop PC to play games like Skyrim.
But for some reason, the desktop PC won't display on my TV. I use the exact same display settings as I used on the laptop(as well as trying others), but after the welcome screen all I get is a black screen with "Please change your computer screen's resolution". If I boot up in safe mode, it displays fine, if I go back to my old tiny monitor it displays fine, and if I go back to the laptop, it displays that fine. I'm not understanding why it's not displaying only in normal mode on my desktop. Is there somethign I'm missing, or am I required to utilize a second display of some sort just to set up my PC to display on my tv?
I'm running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and my processor is AMD A6-3620 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 2.20 GHz. The HDTV is a Hisense not sure the model but I was able to run the laptop just fine.
