Step by step how to enable svideo / tv on your nvidia videocard

Preparing the graphics card for TV Output.

The first step in configuring your graphics card for TV output is to first identify what type of tv output connection is available on your NVIDIA based graphics card. The video output jacks are located on the backside of the video cards mounting bracket. Once you have identified the TV out jack on your graphics card, check that your TV features the same type of video input. If your graphics card only has an S-Video jack for TV out but your TV only has composite inputs, then you may still connect your graphics card to the TV using an S-Video to composite adaptor. Aftermarket S-Video to composite adaptors can be purchased from major electronics retail stores or online. To get the best quality picture on your TV, do not use a cable longer than 12ft. in between your graphics card and TV. Check that you have connected the graphics card directly to your TV. If there is another device in between your TV and the graphics card (such as a VCR, switch box, satellite dish, receiver etc.) it will interfere with the graphic card's ability to properly detect the presence of your TV. This will result in the inability to select your TV as an output device from within Windows. To prevent this, please ensure that the graphics card is connected directly to your TV. After you have connected the appropriate cable from graphics card’s TV output to your TV's video input, you may turn on your PC.

Enabling TV Out

Once you have verified all the connections are properly setup, you may then proceed to enable TV out through the NVIDIA display properties control panel. The panel will differ slightly in appearance depending on whether you have an NVIDIA based graphics card that supports a single display or an NVIDIA based graphics card that can support dual displays.

1) Right-click on the Desktop and select Properties


2) Left-click on the tab labeled Settings. Then left-click on the Advanced button.


3) This will bring up the Advanced Properties. Left-click on the tab corresponding to the graphics card that is installed in your PC. For example, if you have a GeforceFX 5800 Ultra graphics card, you will click on the tab labeled "GeforceFX 5800 Ultra". A window will pop up to the left of this panel. From this left side window, select nView Display Mode.


4) You should then see a panel similar to the one above. If you are using a single display video card, left-click the "Current Display" drop down menu and choose "TV". Then click on the "Apply button to confirm the change.


5) If you are using a dual display video card, left-click over the "nView Modes" drop down menu and then select "Clone Mode". Then left-click over the "Display Pair" drop down menu and choose your monitor configuration (i.e. if you are using an analog CRT monitor plus TV, select "Analog Display + TV"). Then select the "Apply button.


6) You should now see the display on your TV. A confirmation window will pop up prompting you to confirm the changes made. Select Yes to keep these settings. Otherwise, the display will revert back to your previous settings.

My computer is saying that the system is not fully installed and all I want to do is to resite it to its factory settings


Which operating system ?????.....
The HP Recovery Partition that comes pre-installed on most new HPs is like built-in insurance if your system becomes unstable or fails.
If the problem is severe enough, you may not be able to start the HP Desktop Recovery Manager from Windows but you can start it manually by following the steps below.

Disconnect all peripheral devices and power on the computer.
Press the F11 key after the computer first powers on to start the HP Recovery Manager.

Follow the on-screen instructions to back up recoverable files on the hard drive to an external drive or media.
Continue following the instructions to recover the hard drive to its original factory condition.
Click "Finish" when the recovery is complete.
Reconnect devices and reboot the computer.
Reinstall software and update Windows and HP to current settings.


Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows Vista)

HP Pavilion Recovery Partition
Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.
Using the recovery partition allows you to bypass the hassle of keeping track of recovery discs, which could be damaged in storage, rendering them useless when you need them.

Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."
The Recovery Manger program will open on your screen, and you can begin the recovery process.
Access Recovery Manager Within Windows
Click the "Start" icon or "Start" button in the lower left corner of your Windows home screen.
Click "All Programs" and then "Recovery Manager."

You need a Windows DVD -- Same version as you have -- Vista / Win 7, 32-bit / 64-bit.

Sony VAIO VGC-RB38G PC Desktop needs the media center re-installed


I would seriously doubt that your kids know how to remove Media Center. Maybe they just removed the icon from the desktop. Click Start/My Computer and open the Local Disk C. Look for the Programs File Folder. If you are using Windows 7 or Windows Vista there might be two Program File folders (Program Files and Program Files (x86). Look thru the program files folders for the Windows Media Player Folder or Windows Media Center Folder. Open the folder and look for the Media Player. When you see the Icon you can Right Click on it and select Properties. If the Type of File in the properties windows says Application, that is probably the program that runs. You can close the properties window and double click on the icon and see if it runs.

If it runs, you can close it and go back into the folder and Right Click on the icon and select the option Sent To then select Desktop (create Short Cut). Right Click on it again and select option to Pin To Start Menu.

If you just want to download and install it again.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Download Media Player" or "Download Media Center" (without the quotes). Select a site from Microsoft that will download and install it.

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

My HP M7260n doesn't recognize my new Video Card...


You might need to uninstall the old video card device, so Windows does not use the old drivers for the new card.
Another option is to try and boot in Safe Mode (press F8 during startup), so Windows uses the VGA mode (which all video cards support), and then install the proper driver.
Installing the latest ATI driver updates might also not be a bad step.

Media cenetr problems


First step to try is to install all windows updates. To do this, go to Control Panel, then select Windows Update on the left and follow the instructions from there.

I researched this a little, and this seems to have been a problem with Media Center that has been fixed in current updates. Please try to install the updates first, then try again. Let me know if this fixes the issue or not.
