do you have a little icon for your graphix card in the bottom right of your task bar? if so right click it and look for "display options" and see if there's a dual monitor kind of deal

other than that right click on your desktop > properties >settings tab and make sure the other monitor is showing as connected...then click the advanced button and look for the dual dispaly options

according to the manual...to CLONE your desktop to the tv you will need to #1 have the tv connected...and #2 have the tv set to the proper input (whatever connection you're using on the tv)

on the computer

right click your desktop > properties > settings > advanced > this should bring up the advanced settings for your card (should be an nvidia windows)

click the "geforce fx series tab" at the top
under "nview modes" tick "clone"
click apply then ok..

it should be displaying on the tv now

let's take a step back here for a second


how did you install this card? did you just let windows detect it or did you use the cd that came with it?

AH..there's the deal...right click on my computer > manage > device manager > find the video card > right click it and choose uninstall

once that's done

put the cd that came with the card in and install it that way...then you'll get the nvidia programs to configure your card correctly
