Hi all,
This may be a simple one but i am trying to use my tv as the monitor for my laptop using an s-video cable. Now i can get the image to appear on the tv but it's being used as a dual screen and i have to drag a box off of the end of one side of the screen to make it viewable on the TV. Is this right or is there a way that the image i see on the laptop can be produced as an exact copy on my TV?

http://www2.ati.com/..._user_guide.pdf there's a manual for the ati catalyst control center..which is what the radeon's usually use..

go here http://support.ati.c...=737&deptID=894 and run the tool to see if catalyst is compatable with your card

let's see if we can do this blind...(as my setup may be different than yours..though i have an ati radeon as well...just a 9000 not the 340 igp or whatever)

right click the desktop > properties > settings > right click the second monitor and untick "attached" > apply

now highlight monitor one...and choose advanced....go to the displays tab...

do you see four squares?
one that says monitor one that says tv one that says fpd and one that says panel?
does the one that says tv have a little red circle in the top corner? if so...click the little red circle and press apply

of course..all of this needs to have the tv hooked up correctly
