Windows 7: Dual Monitor Setup problems

Dual Monitor Setup problems

On my Windows 7 partition I am unable to use my laptop screen and my 27" LCD Samsung TV as a monitor simultaneously. This was not an issue on my XP partition. I have updated drivers on my video card to no avail. My TV is connected via a VGA cable. If this cable is connected when I turn my computer on, it will display on the monitor only (but at a much lower resolution than my XP partition allowed) and I am unable to switch back to my laptop monitor without restarting. My display settings wont even recognize that both are connected. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

737-27130: Cannot enable TV-Out in Catalyst Control Center

Also, I don't get it. I searched by your model number and found this page:

Seems there are either two different drivers OR two versions of the notebook pc.

As for Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS and 910GML Express Chipset Family Video Driver if that's correct,

...this is for only XP. On their site, they don't list a video driver for Vista or 7. So, I dunno further from here.

This is the Vista 32 bit page...nothing there as I said. *shrugs*...

Thanks torrentg, but I don't have an ATI card, I don't think. All my system info boxes say the Intel chipset and the HP website says I have a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 or Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I know normally a low-quality graphics card can't be expected to do much, but I was able to do it on my XP partition.
