Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

SOURCE: problem hdmi connection
Hello, I'm from the Netherlands and I had the exact same problem with my philips lcd...
So what I did, was upgrading the software of my videocard (nvidia.com),this resolved my problem of giving a error on my laptop and restarting.
Then I got the message on my tv: "video not supported' , this I don't know exactly how i resolved this, but i tried fn+f4 a couple times. If that doesn't work you have to do something with the nvidia control panel (right click on desktop).
So now i had picture, but no sound.
To enable sound from your laptop to your tv you have to go to control panel>sound> set the SPDIF to your standard sounddevice and tick the box with wma audio something, tick out the other boxes.
I hope this will resolve some of your problems and others who have the same problem.

adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a
small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video
connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV
