TV driving me insane!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok. I found my older dell which runs a Nvidia 8800 GT, and have hooked it up to a TV.

Everything works when it boots. Shows boot screen, shows loading screen, I can change boot settings etc.

The second it loads Windows the screen goes blue. As if no computer or device is connected.

Why in the world is it doing this!? Why am I able to see everything at boot, but not once Windows 7 loads?

Might be the resolution. Try booting into safe mode and see if it loads.

There is one big thing I forgot to mention.

Windows is not completely installed. I went through the instillation process, up until the point where it boots into windows.

This is where it goes to the blue screen.

I can't boot into safe mode, since it says the instillation is not finished.

It did have something to do with the resolution. I had to use an old monitor to set the resolution low, so that I was able to get it to display on the TV.

Then switch over to usng the TV as the monitor.

I had tried doing so in safe mode, but also had gotten the blue screen

Guess the TV did not support safe modes resolution...

But I fixed the problem. Thank you for the tip.

The only problem now is that the top bottom and sides of the desktop are cut off.

Ex: I can only see a sliver of the right side of the start menu when opening it.
(If I didn't already have most of windows memorized, it would be almost impossible for me to even use the computer with the way it is now.)

Go into Nvidia control panel and adjust the desktop position. You generally have to do this with tvs

Will try that. I never knew that such an option even existed.
