Answers :

You didnt say whaat your graphics card was but if you are using the ONBOARD you might have a couple of problems.
\015\012
\015\012It might also be useful to know what type of connection you are making.
\015\012DVI, S-VIDEO etc.
\015\012
\015\012First thing to do is to lower the resolution to say 800x600
\015\012
\015\012If you are using a proper video card esp an Nvidia then it is usually quite easy.
\015\012
\015\012call up the Nvidia control panel by right clicking on an empty part of the desktop and click the Nvidia CONTROL PANEL
\015\012
\015\012there are two methods one is the MULTIPLE DISPLAY WIZARD (Jus follow it through and it will do most of the work for you)
\015\012
\015\012OR
\015\012
\015\012Use the SET UP MULTIPLE DISPLAYS option. (my choice)
\015\012
\015\012it is better to select the "CONFIGURED INDEPENDANTLY" option often knows as dual view.
\015\012
\015\012Below that are two boxes the first sets the order of the display. Set it so your regular monitor is first on the list.
\015\012
\015\012the box below that selects the PRIMARY display normally leave this to your default monitor until you have finished setting up both displays.
\015\012
\015\012when you have two displays then go to the "CHANGE RESOLUTION" (still in the Nvidia panel not the regular display panel)
\015\012
\015\012click on the display you want to change and alter to suit your taste.
\015\012now do the same for the other display.
\015\012
\015\012If you get an "out of range" error drop the resolution as you are trying to do more than the display can handle
\015\012
\015\012There are similar procedures for other makes of graphic cards.
\015\012
\015\012Try avoid the VGA to component leads as they are hit and miss in this type of application.
\015\012
\015\012S-Video is quite good
\015\012
\015\012your best option is DVI and it the one I use to drive a 50" sony
\015\012

Hello,

Do you have ans S-Video port on the computer and the TV?. Does your TV have a VGA port? You must open the AV option of your TV (with the remote controller) and select the input to TV as S-Video or PC depending on the Computer-TV connction. On your computer use the graphics option so as to send the screen output to the two devices or just to the TV.

If you configure your TV and connect it to the computer before turning the computer on, the output will probably go to the TV.

Hope it helps
