Hi.  Trying to connect dell laptop to LG LCD 32" TV via VGA/Serial port.  The connection initially works for about 10 seconds (resolution is perfect on TV) however then the laptop screen keeps going blank every 5 or so seconds (no signal msg comes up on TV)and sometimes returns with different resolution then goes blank again etc.
It is the same when i connect with S Video cable.
I changed refresh rate and resolution on laptop but it is still the same. Cheers

have you tryed flicking though the differant screening types with fn f8 i think on dell laptops.
if you pres fn f8 untill it is showing the screen both on the laptop and the tv then it should be fine. if you are wanting to watch a dvd then it has to be only displaying on the tv.
also have you got the latest drivers for your graphics card.
