Cfg Trident 3D Image 9750 for TV Out

I picked up a second hand trident 3d image 9750 AGP video card. I downloaded the drivers from the tridentmicro web site and it works - except that I can't figure out how to configure it to use the TV out.

It has a tab in the driver options called "display device" that has a box with a picture of a monitor in it, but there doesn't seem to be anything you can actually _do_ there to change the output from monitor to TV.

Anyone have any ideas?

Are you sure you got the drivers for the TV out version ?

Are there any seperate utilities that are included ?

TV out may simply be on at all times !

I hope this helps !

It may not detect the TV unless connected and powered on prior to booting up...T

SysExpert is right. If you got the wronf drivers the tab you need may not appear.

Try a search for trident 3d image 9750 AGP video card.

I have an NVidia, mine has an Output Device tab which allows you to change from Analog Monitor to TV by clicking the radio button.

It is definitely the right driver. The card identifies itself as a 3D Image 9750 on boot up - these are the drivers I installed.

IS it possible that there is a 9750 model with and without the TV out option ?

I made some progress overnight. I downloaded the dos drivers which come with a collection of utilities.

One of the utilities allows you to switch between crt and tv mode which I did successfully. It only works in dos mode though.

So I think this rules out some of the more obvious guesses at the problem. But still leaves the mystery of the windows driver "display device" tab.

1) Do a start -run- SFC.

2) Form a real DOS prompt do

scanreg /fix

I would uninstall the drivers.

cleanup the registry again, possibly deleting any Keys that pertain to the previous drivers, and re-install the drivers.

Maybe this will help.

I've given up on this one and pulled the card out. Thanks for at least providing some info on a similar card.
