Won't detect TV

skeetley asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-08
I am trying to use the VGA out on my PC to clone my desktop to my TV.

The DVI out goes to my monitor.  The VGA goes to a VGA/S video adaptor and the S video cable is plugged into my Sharp Aquos TV.  My video driver is a GeForce 6150LE.

The problem seems to be that the computer is not detecting the TV.  I have tried expanding the desktop, I have tried clicking the "force television detection" in the nVidia manager and I have done pretty much everything else I could think.

Now it's time to turn to the experts for help!
