I'm not sure how many people have managed to rectify this problem. But i'm
sure you're aware that you need manafacturer specific graphics drivers for
laptops. So the current drivers I have on my Presario R3000, using an ATI
Radeon Mobility 9000IGP are 6.14.10.6430. I'm not exactly sure whice ones
they are, but I don't have the ability to force detection settings to
display on an old TV properly. Now the question is this, can anyone point
me in the direction of a driver, or even a patch for my laptop to fix this
little problem.

TIA,

Daz.

I have the same series laptop with a higher end video card. (R3060 w/
mobility radeon 9200 dedicated 64mb.)

It's sort of confusing to get TV display to work, but it shouldn't need to
be "detected".

Once the TV is connected, reboot your computer...

1. Bring up Display properties
2. Choose the Settings tab
3. Click the Advanced button
4. Click the Displays button
5. Use the "TV" panel to turn TV-out on.

At this point, the desktop should appear on the TV tube..

You might have to go back to the main Desktop properties window, click the
"2" monitor icon in the diagram, and then click "extend my windows desktop
onto this monitor."

Ooops, my bad.

The main problem was the fact I couldn't get colour, that's why I was trying
to force it.
