I use my desktop computer as a media platform for my TV. I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 and since then I have not been able to get the TV to project the desktop. The TV says that there is "No Signal" form the VGA input. If it does show up, it will only last until the system gets rebooted and then nothing.

I have attempted to fix this trough the display settings with no luck.

Any suggestions out there??

Hi c00lbr33z3. See if you can find a newer driver for your graphics card.

I tried that and they are all up to date...

I can get it to work on a typical monitor, then once I connect it to the TV I get the same thing, No Signal.

Problem solved.. The automatic updates wanted to update a driver that was causing it not to recognize the TV.
