    i work at a school and most of the computers are using dual video cards so the teachers can show computer sites on the tvs. my question is when you put a cd or dvd in the drive of the computer and it brings up windows media player all you get on the tv is a black media player and it doesn't play what is on the cd. you get the sound and it plays fine on the monitor. why would it not project on the tv when the desktop shows up just fine and websites show up fine. it is only if it is reading from the cd drive. is there a setting that needs to be changed to be able to view from the cd drive. most of the video cards are nvidia gforce and the settings are on clone. thanks again in advance.:confused:

    You mean, dual resolution right? If you meant dual video cards, you meant running in SLI mode/Crossfire..
    I'm not quite sure what your trying to ask us.

    Dual monitors, that is. Video cards with two display ports with a monitor in both of them. How big is the TV? Know the resolution, or their model?
