One workaround might be tried as noted at the WMP MINI FAQ. Read http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html#screencap
I have a S-video out on my laptop. When I hook up to my TV and play anything with Media Player or WinDVD, the video is blank. Anybody know how to fix this?
Go to the control panel of your video card or video device -- it should allow you to indicate whether you want the notebook LCD to show the display or the external monitor (TV through S-VHS) or both.
Also, some notebooks allow you to toggle this function using Function/F4 (but check your specific notebook for the correct keys).
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
