GTX 260 to my Samsung DynaFlat HD

I'm attempting to display my desktop PC which has an nvidia GTX 260 on my Samsung DynaFlat HD TV by using a 7 Pin Mini Din to Component cable. The TV does not have any vga or hdmi inputs so my only choice for getting a high resolution image on my TV is by running through component. I've tried a handful of different resolutions and always with the same results; I get no picture on my TV save for some odd flickering when the PC is connected. I'm wondering if the adapter I have is the appropriate one as well as if I'm going to be able to pull this off at all. Currently I'm running a straight S-Video connection which works but doesn't look very good at all. For the record the reason I'm bothering with this at all is that my monitor recently died and I wont be able to afford a replacement for a month or so and am looking for a temporary setup that will allow me to continue gaming and web browsing.

  1. Well, your monitor doesn't have VGA or HDMI?
    How about DVI? You can try DVI connection since your card also has it...
  2. A DVI to component adapter may work better. I believe they are usually $5-10.
  3. Was the TV powered on before booting into Windows 7?

    Is the TV-Out feature under Device Selection of the Display Control Panel enabled?

    Is the TV properly detected by Windows 7?
