Windows 7: Component video output

06 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 x64
Component video output

I have a desktop running windows 7 x64 with a PCIe ATI 3850 graphics card. I want to hook up the component out (I have the dongle connected) to an infocus projector.
When the PC boots I see the bios data displayed by the projector but when Windows loads I lose the display. Windows detects it as a generic non-pnp monitor. I can't figure out how to get it to turn on the component output. I have catalyst 10.10 installed.

Have you tried pressing...

This will open up the multiple display config of Windows 7 allowing you to choose from Computer only thru to Projector/External only.

Also, when you right-click the desktop, choose 'Screen Resolution' then click 'Detect'. It could be that Windows needs a little nudge in the right direction
