To anyone willing to help me, here is my problem:

I have an Nvidia 8600gts and ive been using it with my samsung tv in clone mode for the past 6 months with no trouble. However i just updated the nvidia drivers and now im greeted with "no signal" on my samsung tv even though the nView control panel says im running in clone mode with my tv. wtf!?

Please help, Thanks

ok, an update already. it appears it is intermitent. it will work, then it wont work it will work then it wont. then ill change resolution for a game and it will work, then ill go back to desktop and it will stop, then ill load a game and it will work then ill go back to my desktop and that works again. anytime i change resolution or refresh rate it is hit or miss as to whether or not it is going to work. i dont get it, it was fine before. everything is plugged in just awesome as well, it a detection issue with the driver or something..... -_-

I would imagine the only person who can help you is the writer of those drivers. I am of course being a tad facetious. Unless you absolutely have to have these drivers then get shot of them, and either reinstall your older ones or get one of the beta ones on nvidia site. I also run my tv via clone and since switching from ati to nvidia and found their drivers on the tv front found wanting.
