For some time I have been playing music videos from my laptop thru my relatively modern TV. I don't have a USB connection, just the
multi-pin type (unsure of name.)

Recently it hasn't worked, as follows :

Having selected the PC option thru the TV AV settings, then selected the twin screen option via Function/F5 on the lappy, I get no TV picture reflecting what's on the computer.
If I restart the laptop, I get the usual POST start-up stuff showing on the TV then the Windows XP startup. Before it goes through to the Desktop stage the TV
picture disappears and that's it.

I have tried disabling the Avast Anti-virus but no difference.

The only thing I can think of that may have changed since the last time it worked was the installation of My Sky.

Any thoughts....

I seem to have fixed this matter and post this in case it may be useful to someone else....

Ran the operation thru another TV which indicated that the problem was one of resolution. I changed the resolution on the laptop and it now
runs again. Not sure why the screen resolution had changed but it's solved the problem.
