Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
My TV out on the S-video port works great except when I want to watch any type of Movie file on the TV. In the past when I would play a movie (Any Format) on my laptop the TV would switch from displaying a mirror of the laptop screen to just displaying the video that was playing in Windows Media player recently the TV quit displaying videos is just displays what is on the laptop screen. Where the video window is for windows media player on the laptop is a black square on the TV screen. If I go full screen on the laptop and the whole screen is showing the video the TV just shows a black screen. The only exception is flash movies on like You tube or the CBS website. Any Ideas???
Its quite possible your laptop has lost its association with your TV as a "secondy monitor".
To check this, minimise everything and right click on the desktop and go to Properties. Then navigate to the settings tab. This will show you how many displays it considers itself to have.
Click on number 2 (if visable) and click on extend my windows desktop to this monitor.
You should now be able to go between screens
