laptop to tv

    need some help me old china's, the mother in law has a toshiba laptop with xp and a samsung LE40B530 tv with pc input, i connected both with a dvi cable and there is no signal, so had a look at the manual and it says set the resolution to something which the laptop does not have, tried a few different settings on laptop and still no joy. cable works fine with another laptop and 19" lcd tv. any suggestions cheers


    Function (Fn) key and F5?

    This may sound stupid but are you using windows directly to change the res? If so have you got an icon in the bottom right of your task bar for your video driver? (called Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile on mine). Reason i ask is that i have alot more options for the res in the intel settings than i do on windows where the options are limited.

    first enable dual screen/extended desktop, then set resolution that should be it.

    cheers guys, got it working today. i was kinda expecting it would be just a case of plugging it in and away you go, but all sorted now.
