Is TV source set to PC (vga) input?

Have you tried a different lead?

or to a different TV?

Have function keys been disabled in BIOS?

When you firats boot up there is a message "Press ?? to enter setup" or words to that effect.

?? can be del esc or one of the F keys depending on make of machine.

I had a look in the manual (via Asus click here), & it says this on page 29:

"LCD/Monitor Icons (F8): Toggles between the Notebook PC’s LCD dispexternal monitor in this series: Notebook PC LCD > External Monitor > Both. This function does not work in 256 Colors, select High Color in Display Property settings.
NOTE: Must connect an external monitor *before* booting up."

F8 refers to the function key.

I guess you're still having the display problem as mentioned in your other thread click here?

Does this ring a bell? G
