    NVIDIA GeForce2 Go

    I’m working on a Dell Inspiron 8100 (laptop). Was originally formatted and Windows 2k was put on. All drivers were installed from Dell website. It has the NVIDIA GeForce2 Go video card on it with tv-out. The Tv-out is not working at all. The cables are hooked up properly. The drivers are the newest and right ones. Not sure if there is a configuration problem. The tv flickers when you tell it to detect the tv. Please only reply if you are familiar with the video card and do not respond with a “check driver and cable” answer.

      TV out on video cards is still very primitive. With the exception of High Definition Television (HDTV), a standard television monitor will only recieve data at a resolution of 640×480 or less. If your resolution is too high, the TV will simply tweak (perhaps why it is flickering). Also, even if you have a HDTV, you will a component converter to get decent resolutions. Plz comment or email me when you find out what happened if this does not fix it. I have many customers who want to use TV-out as well.

        Does not solve the problem. Dell says that it doesn’t matter what the resolution is, it automatically sends the right resolution to the tv. Plus the quality is very good as I see from others that have the Inspiron 8000. Don’t know what else to do.

      I’m not sure this is going to help you but I experienced a similar problem with Win2K on an IBM T20 Thinkpad with a S3 video card.

      Like you, I updated to newest, supposedly correct drivers but unfortunately I never resolved the problem. The commonality we have is with Win2K.

      I’d start looking in Win2K for an obscure configuration setting…

      I know its really excessive, but you could confirm the hardware is ok by trying another OS? That at least would narrow it down to Win2K drivers or configurations.

      I couldn’t do these tests as it was a work machine…

      Cheers,
      Tim.
