help!! geforce 7200 multi display problem!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all, i recently got a new laptop from HP with a Geforce 7200 graphics. I reformatted the HDD and installed Vista Home Premium and reinstalled all the drivers [to get rid of HP bloatware].

I am running a dual display with an external VGA LCD monitor as primary and notebook as secondary and tried opening video files [.avi .wmv .mpeg, etc] with multiple programs [VLC, Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player]. The video would not show up and would sometimes freeze the computer to where i would have to restart.

I put the display back to single [only the notebook, external monitor off] and found that the videos played no problem.

So i guess the issue is when i have dual display with the external monitor as primary the video does not play [sound works].

Anyone know how to resolve this issue? I have not had this issue on other notebooks before. Thanks!

With Nvidia cards ive only ever known video to play on the primary monitor. What happens if you make the notebook primary, the external monitor secondary?
