Hello, I have a brand new computer that has a ATI X1600 Pro Video Card and a 21" WS monitor set at 1680x1050:http://powerspec.com/systems/system_specs....?selection=9202http://powerspec.com/systems/system_compon...;selection=9202
I've had NVidia Ti Series in my previous PC and my laptop had the integrated Video Out. Both I was able to feed to my TV with little problems (except for an overlay setting set wrong). Yet for some reason I can't get anything to show up on my TV BUT the desktop background pic. I've tried all the resolution settings and still no start menu, windows, or anything is showing but the background.
I thought maybe I needed drivers because I couldn't even find an ATI configuration tool... so I installed some and that turned out to be a bad idea. It crashed my computer to the point of not even booting into windows. So I had to do a restore, etc to get back to normal. Now I'm back to square one. Any suggestions? I'm using the XP display settings to extend it to secondary device. I thought there would be a way to switch it completely over to the TV without the cloning. All I want to do is feed Windows Media Player to the TV to record video from my PC to my stand alone DVD recorder. I didn't think it would be so difficult. Am I missing something?
Thanks for any help... I'd really appreciate it!
