Windows 7: nVidia Geforce 9400 GT - Can't make TV-Out work

nVidia Geforce 9400 GT - Can't make TV-Out work

Hello guys,

This is my first post and i hope you can help me out. I have a Geforce 9400GT videocard (i know, not the best one :P) and i used to have Windows Vista Ultimate as OS. The problem is, i've installed the RC version of Windows 7 and and since then, using the latest WHQL drivers (186.18), i can't make my TV-OUT to work. In fact, i can't even find my tv, even when i choose to hard detect.

I'm using a S-video cable to connect my videocard to my tv and it worked fine for ages. Any suggestions? I've tried to install an old driver version (163.75) but it says that it can't locate any drivers compatible with my hardware.

I like to watch my home movies on my tv but it's been one month, since the new OS that i can't.

Cheers from Brazil! :)

You could try this driver. You didn't mention 32 or 64 bit, but they're both here.

GeForce ForceWare 190.15 Win 7 | Vista | XP

Also, do you have a second S-Video cable to try? Doubtful, but it could have coincidentally went bad.

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

leolecal, welcome to the forums.

Where you using the same Windows 7 OS before or perhaps XP or Vista?

Was this a clean install?

Perhaps a little more info on your part would be best before we ask you more questions that you care to answer

Thank you guys for your replys. I'm using the 32bits version until i get myself a copy of the 64bits one. It's a clean install and i used to have the Vista Ultimate 32bits copy.

I've downloaded the recommended driver and tested my other S-Video cable. No luck so far. I'm using the NVIDIA control panel to try to detect my tv. As i said, it used to work fine on Vista.

Any directions? :)
