Windows 7: External Display Black Screen Problem

External Display Black Screen Problem


A couple of days ago i set up my Windows 7 laptop as a media center, streaming movies from my Mac Mini.

Basically it connects over the LAN and displays the video onto my TV via VGA cable. It worked for a couple of days but now for some reason whenever i try to detect the external display both screens go blank and i have to restart the machine and disconnect the display.

The display was set up only to use the external when connected so i could close the laptop lid when watching a movie.

Any ideas?
