Hey guys,

really sorry if this has already been posted, but I've been searching all day and still can't work this bastard out! :)

I have an asus c90s laptop with a nvidia 8600m GT (old I know haha)

I am trying to connect to my panasonic TV....but of course I'm having some issues.

I use the nvidia driver, and I can get it to work as a seperate monitor (not just showing the same thing as my laptop) but after about 5 minutes it just stops working....the wallpaper is still on my TV but the mouse or anything can no longer be dragged over.

I am using a HDMI cable by the way, dunno if this helps.


I'm really not all that tech savy, but I can follow instructions...all I use my laptop for these days is facebook and VLC, pain in the **** that I can't get this monitor **** working!


thanks so much in advance guys, I'm sure one of you smart blokes would be able to help me out haha
Matt
