Hi, I have no idea if this is the right place for this, but hopefully you guys can help, haven't gotten any anywhere else =(


I have an nvidia 9800gt that i am trying to connect to a samsung led tv via dvi to hdmi cable. in my nvidia control panel it does NOT let me select what type of connector i am using, and has vga listed for both my tv, and the monitor i am using currently (an old lcd using a dvi to vga adapter). it may be as simple as finding drivers that lets me change this, but i have used the most recent, version 266.58 and ones from 2010 (when this was my main computer) and none would allow that.


the tv will work fine during booting, even loading windows screen, however as soon as it should go to the user account screen, the tv will lose signal. it also works fully when booted in safe mode, although there i believe it will not let me use full 1366x720 resolution and only a max of 1280x800


my comp is using w7 64 ult, 4gb ram, e4500 cpu. it may be as simple as a drivers issue as most recently i was trying different driver versions and had to restart mid install, came back with only 1 dvi port working from my comp, which my tv was hooked up to at the time. it booted fully into desktop and was running fine, but as above, was capped at 1280x8 res, and wouldn't let me use 2 monitors as there were no drivers. upon restarting again, the same issue came back up.


apologies if i left out any info, i'll be happy to add more. thanks

i dont believe any of the tvs in my house have dvi and the only monitor left here is only vga, using a dvi->vga adapter from the vid card


would that issue not happen immediately? i dont understand how it gets part way then stops, especially how safe mode/sans drivers will work but a higher res will not.


im using the comp now, so it boots fine. the cable is a dvi-d to hdmi, brand new so shouldnt be the issue itself i believe
