    Intel 82852/82855 Extreme graphics  TV out problem

    lipscombe

      Folks

       

      I have an old Dell laptop running XP Pro connected to my TV via the s-video cable. Its  used to watch  films (movies).

      The extreme graphics driver allows me to clone the laptop screen to the TV. so far so good.

       

      The propblem comes when I close the laptop screen. The TV goes blank - the  extreme graphics  application shows that output has reverted to the notebook only. I have set the XP Power Options to "do nothing" when the laptop lid is closed nd I have installed the latest Intel driver (2006).

       

      I would love to be able to completely close the laptop and watch the film on the TV. But I have to leave the laptop open slightly to prevent the display reverting to "notebook only".

       

      How cn I do this?

       

       

      Thanks - Adam
