Windows 7: 2010 MBP - External Monitor Not Recognized?

2010 MBP - External Monitor Not Recognized?

So I am having this extremely frustrating problem. My bootcamp partition on my MacBook pro will not recognize my TV. I have a MiniDisplayPort to HDMI adapter, with the HDMI going into the TV. I have tried custom drivers, updating / rolling back the drivers, different HDMI cords, and different TVs (Samsung and LG). The TV is displayed fine when running OSX. I have posted this problem on about 6 different sites today, and no luck so far.

If nothing works, I will just buy a MDP to VGA adapter and do it that way without sound.

Specs:
Nvidia GT 330m 512mb
4 gigs ram
Intil i7 2.67 ghz
Windows 7 Pro x64

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

hey, welcome to seven forums!

first, try updating your graphics drivers, reboot.
try again, but if it doesn't work use the MDP alone, eg its only option for a display. also if you have more then one MDP try each of them.

I have upgraded my drivers to the most recent ones released today. I only have one MDP, asdly. What do you mean by "use the MDP alone?"

imagine you have a VGA cable, and an MDP plugged in at the same time. remove the VGA cable so only the MDP is plugged into your machine.
