Howdy there. I've been hooking my Mini up to my TV in order to watch videos on a screen bigger than 11"-- Batman deserves to be viewed on the big screen. It's worked fine since I purchased the computer a year ago, but recently, it's just stopped working.
The problem's not with the TV or the monitor cable-- both work just fine with a different laptop. I've still got the factory defaults for my display and the Windows XP OS that came on the computer. To my knowledge, I don't believe I've changed any setting.
My computer still detects the monitor cable when it's plugged in, and it registers in Graphics Properties. I can even set the resolution I want the monitor to be. But when I press 'Apply,' the laptop screen goes black and no image appears on the TV (I use Single Display mode). It runs down its whole 'press OK in 15 seconds' thing and the display switches back to my laptop screen, but nothing happens on the TV.
Quite frankly, I'm stumped. Any ideas?
