Question about Philips 20PF5120/01 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD Television

PC display problem

I'm using this TV as the display device for my PC. My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce 7500 LE. When I try to set the display resolution to 1366 x 768 (my preferred option) I lose the right hand side of my desktop. How can I resolve this issue? I don't mind too much if the aspect ratio is out, as long as I can see and use my whole desktop.

Hey,

ik'm glad that atleast you don't have troubles with the reso.
Anyways if you got the same TV, then just do this and it should work, i have sometimes lost a little side of the screen too, but this helped me:
Take your TV remote
PC Menu-->Factory Preset-->Reset-->Yes
OR same thing just not automatic
PC Menu-->Picture-->Horizontal/Vertical.

I hope it fixes it for you.

Where can I find a driver/adapter for Advent X19W LCD Monitor?

Goto device manager , uninstall the card. go into control panel and check that the driver is uninstalled from the programs list. Swich of the pc for a minute or two then reboot Windows updares does not download drivers for graphics cards so will not install or reinstall the driver that is causing the issue, 307? Users forget to uninstall from program manger in control panel which is why the card keeps reinstalling with the undesired driver.
Please let me know what happens

The latest driver 175.19 for geforce fx5500 not working have tried everything poss. i have other techs working on the prob too! they must have given up in frustration - like im about to.

sounds like yo had the same Probles that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding  to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card .  to make it rebind  just change the refresh rate in the nvidia  icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device  manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot  change the montior cord boot up check you direct x by typing  in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is runing with your card you can also see that fron the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped

No color Red, Dell XPS 400, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE video card

Mike,

I would recommend for you to try different monitor, so that you can isolate the problem.

If same problem occur, try to plug in your video card into another PCI slot in your computer. Cleaning the gold fingers of the video card with a clean cotton cloth might help.

Use a blower to remove some dust on the PCI slot.

Or try inserting the video card in another computer. If you get the same problem on another computer, you need to replace the card.

Good luck!

I have just installed my geforce fx5200 and used it to watch films on the tv, using tv out. when i tryed to use my pc monitor, my monitor says no signal after loading screen..But it still works on my tv,...

Try going into the Display properties in the control panel or right click on the desktop and go to properties. Go to the settings tab and choose advanced, you should then have an Nvidia tab. Go to that and see which device is showing for the default display, you should see your computer monitor and you tv as choices.

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter

so...
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.
