Hey guys, this is quite a challenging question here.

I recently got a 47" LCD HDTV for my living room, and I have been wanting to plug in my laptop to it. Well i got an HDMI to DVI cable, but when i plugged it in, nothing came up on my screen, after doing all the proper screen setup in Vista. I have fiddled with refresh rates, resolution's, etc. Nothing will work. I have yet to check the settings on my tv itself though.

My laptop see's the TV when it's plugged in, it even recognizes that it's a philips. It's an nVidia GeForce GO 7300 in my laptop, and I can run Bioshock on it even.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Wolfie.

Hello Wolfie,

I have yet to check the settings on my tv itself though.

That'd be a good place to start. Find the options in your TV menu to change the input setting. Many times multiple connectors feed into a single input and you have to select the appropriate one.

Regards,

Ax

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'll post up if it doesn't seem to be the TV, or whatever...

Thanks
