      Problems with Dual Monitors

      in Forums > Problems with Dual Monitors | Follow this topic

      I have a XPS M1210 with Windows XP. My video card is a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400. I recently bought a LCD Samsung 42" LN40A530P1f and a VGA chord so I could use the TV as a 2nd monitor. I have done this before with my old PC monitor and everything went fine. When I get everything set up and switch my TV's source to PC there is nothing there, just black screen. My power button is blinking and it looks like it finds the source, but it stays black. I have tried to make it single view, duel view, and clone, but nothing changed the black screen. Anybody have any ideas what I can do to fix this? Thanks.

      Little it of this....little bit of that

      7 years ago

      Wow, I havnt been on here in a long long long time. I seem to have spurts of time that I avoid or just dont type on here or even visit the site. Even with me being a sponsor I have not checked back since the RvB series went to an end. Now I am approaching the final two semesters of my college career and real life is starting to kick in slowly.

      I am applying for a few internships with local businesses in the area and the hospital across from the TTU campus. It would be pretty kick ass if I was able to nail one of those jobs and actually be able to put job experience on my resume. Christmas time is coming around once again, the lights and tree have been put up in my dorm room and all is becoming merry. I need to start thinking of gifts to get all those special someones in my life.

      Flying back to Lubbock tomorrow to get back into the swing of things two weeks before finals. Should be a great rush, all I hope is that it goes by really quickly. Well to all those in the internet world of RvB, I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving.

      Oh, here is a picture of me rushing the field when we SMOKED #3 OKlahoma U this last weekend.

      The "Scarlet Axe"

      Epiphone Collegiate Electric Guitar

      This is one I found while doing what I usually do in my free time...surf guitar websites. There was an add for Collegiate guitars by Epiphone on the front page of Musicians Friend. I clicked on it just to check it out and found out they had my Scarlet and Black just sitting there waiting for me. For $99 this was hard not to pass up and once it got to me in the mail it was so worth the price. It is a great guitar for rhythm play and would be perfect to just strum around my room.

      Specs:
      -Laminated alder/maple body
      -Mahogany neck with dot inlays
      -1.6" nut width
      -24-3/4" scale
      -One USA-designed covered humbucker

      School blows...as usual. The only hopes is that a friend of mine decides to come up to Tech and join this crazy adventure we call "Colege." Four classes = six more weeks, three labs, three exams, and four finals...should be a grand ol time.

      On a brighter note I did purchase two new toys. Here are all of them together:

      Waiting....

      8 years ago

      Well, its 4PM on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. My flight leaves at 6:40PM bound for Houston and I have quite a bit of time to kill. I am not really used to flying just yet, buy I hope to go to Wal-Mart on the way to the airport to pick up a good movie to watch on the plane. Should only be a two hours flight so it wont be that bad, well at least not as bad as when I flew to California.

      Well, I also found out that my guitar amp had a built in over drive. I was like OH NO WAY! So I have been playing with that a lot now. Trying to learn some new songs, especially by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It is by far my favorite holiday band and one of my top favorite bands of all time. Their guitarists are just amazing, one plays a wicked double neck. Man I wish I could play like them.

      Well, its about that time. Time for me to head to the airport. Lata.

      Who would have thought...

      In Lubbock, Texas...of all places. We get stronger winds here than I ever experienced back home in Galveston. Today, we had 35 MPH winds...that is just insane. I was driving to the dentist to fix a chipped tooth today and the wind was pushing my car off the road. Not only is the wind bad, but when the wind gets bad in Lubbock we get something worse. One of two things will happen. If we are lucky a huge dust storm will roll through and blind us all. The other thing that can happen is the horrid smell of cow from the fields surrounding the city.

      Oh well, I love it here and wouldnt go to any other city for College. On a brighter note I finally caved in yesterday and bought Gears of War. Wow, I dont know why I was waiting. This game is the most kick ass thing since I picked up Halo 1 for the first time. If anybody reading this has Gears of War look me up so I can have some friends to play with smiley0.gif . If not GO BUY IT! Dont give me that "but but I dont have a 360" excuse...STEAL ONE! Well, again class is over, so I must run.

      Lata

      We beat SMU on Saturday 35-3. Not a bad game by the Red Raiders, but it was still a blow out.

      Settled In...

      8 years ago

      Well, I got into my new dormitory known as Murray (pronounced Murry) Hall. Moved in on thursday and have been making everything just right so it kinda sorta feels like home. Everything is set up quite nicly, I even bought a few anti-A&M shirts....stupid Faggies. Anyway, everything is going smoothly. Although it is quite a change from community college. Having to feed myself, go to bed when I think its a good time, and yada yada yada.

      Classes start tommorrow and I am actually really cool with it. First class is at 11 and I should probably get stuff ready.

      Now if i can find some friends.........
