Windows 7: TV Not Detecting Laptop From S-Video

TV Not Detecting Laptop From S-Video

When I was running windows vista, I could display my laptop on my TV with no issues. After installing windows 7, the TV does not detect any input. I tried pressing Fn F8, and windows P and the laptop says its switching dispays but the TV does not react. I just updated my NVidia drivers. Any ideas?

Thank you

Hi and welcome

If the hardware worked under vista its probably the driver. can you go into device manager and check the video tab to see that the driver is listed and doesn't have a yellow triangle on it. let us know if it is either not listed or has yellow. If there are any "unknown" deivices as well

thanks

I don't see any problems with any devices in the device manager.

Ya. NVIDIA has directed other users with same exact problem to get a new S-Video cable and it has fixed their issue.

Did you perform a "clean" install or an upgrade?
