PC link to Samsung LE32R73


Prominent Member
Hello People

I have just bought a VGA cable to link my Hewlett Packard Pavilion zv6000 laptop to my new Samsung LE32R73. The picture looks fantastic and it's great browsing the internet with PIP showing the news in the corner.

However, whenever I try to watch some video played from my PC via either windows media player or DIVX all that is seen is a black screen where the video should be. It appears on the laptop screen fine but for some reason it just won't appear on the Samsung. I have read the book and ensured the right resolution and frequency are being transmitted but I am out of ideas (I never had many to begin with!).

Can anyone help?
