This is strange. I bought a VGA cable to connect my laptop to TV. Got home hooked it up and boom picture shows right up on TV. Now I go to get back on computer and picture will not show on TV. I change the source to PC on my TV and it says format not supported. I know my laptop still recognizes that its connected because when I right click on desktop it gives me option of NOTEBOOK or MONITOR. I put it on monitor setting and it switches over to the TV but the TV just sits there saying format not supported(even though it was working before). Do I need to download some sort of driver/software to get it to work?
UPDATE: Got it to show back up on TV. I actually had to disable the drivers that windows automatically installed.
Windows Vista on my Toshiba labtop
32" magnavox TV
Things I tried:
Restarted computer like 5 times with TV on and off.
Messed with settings on Computer.
disconnected, reconnected cable
Went to Device manager. Computer recognizes monitor/tv is connected. Updated drivers and still no luck.
