    i am trying to set up a computer to be able to play movies on a TV screen through an RCA jack. the video card is an Nvidia GeForce 4 MX440 64mb. i plugged the RCA cable from the PC to the TV and i am able to see the desktop and everythiong else. but when i play a movie the screen where the movie is supposed to play is just black. i can see the movie on the PC monitor but not on the TV. i tried messing with the settings but cant seem to find the right one. i know how to do it on an ATI video card but not an Nvidia. Please Help. Thanks.

    right click on the desktop then go to properties, then settings. you should see two moniors. most likely the secondary one is selected and the checkbox says "extend desktop" or something like that. uncheck that box then click on the primary monitor and click 'advanced'
    i dont remember the nvidea properties design but there should be a 'monitors' or 'displays' tab which will show 2 monitors. the option you are looking for is 'clone' if you find the clone option, turn it on and that should solve your problem.
