I've recently tried connecting my PC (uses Nvid 7800 GTX card) to my TV (Samsung 46" flat panel bought about a month ago. think the model # is T4669) via a DVI->VGA converter.
At first, the TV wouldn't even recognize the computer signal, and instead went into a black screen. No P&P! Finally, I was able to restart the pc by mashing F5, and got it to boot (barely) in safe mode. I assumed from this point that I'd be able to adjust the display properties, but was unable to get it to run in anything other than 640x480x4bit!!!
Has anyone here ever heard of this problem? At this point, I'm probably just going to take it back to FS and get a Sony as I've never had a problem with them, but I'll be out another $600 to get a Sony tv with the same specs as the Samsung I'm losing.
Please let me know!
