Here goes...I have Windows7 installed on my Toshiba satellite L300D laptop (with ATI Radeon 3100 integrated graphics).
Until recently I could connect my Samsung 32" LCD TV by VGA to the laptop, and use it in PC mode as a second monitor, seamlessly, effectively and without any problems.
However, overnight, the TV stopped receiving the signal from the laptop, and no longer works, I just get the "No Signal" message on the screen.
I have multiple operating systems on the laptop, including Ubuntu and Vista. All of the systems identify the external monitor (although as a 19" rather than as the 32" that it actually is). However the TV will not receive the signal from any of them.
The laptop's own integrated monitor works fine, by the way.
I have tried PowerStrip, in the hope of determining what the problem might be. It reports that the TV's EDID is 1.3 (although I don't really understand what that is!), and that the TV is Samsung, however it reports it as a 16".
The info in the bios shows that the (analogue RGB) external monitor is detected too.
The TV works fine as a PC monitor when connected by VGA to an old laptop with Nvidia, and to a desktop PC with Intel graphics, , and I have tried with 3 different cables.
I feel I have tried everything, and have dedicated hours to this problem already!
I am hoping someone on this forum might be able to offer me some insight... please.
