How can I force the Nvidia display to show up on the HDTV as default like I use to?
I have an Acer laptop with a broken screen. I removed the screen completely and set it to load up the HDTV as the default display, I did this by hooking up an old monitor that it recognized by default and changing the options with it. It has been working fine for over a year now....
One day... I went to switch on my laptop, everything went normal, got the Windows login screen, then it actually went to load the desktop (after the actual loading please wait screen), and then it goes black.
What I've Done:
I tried completely un-installing the NVIDIA drivers and re-installing making sure to check the clean install. Prior to this I tried to hook up the old monitor again and got treated with the same results. I've tried having them both hooked up at the same time.
I've tried murdering my registry manually and with CCleaner, Removed anything NVIDIA from my PC, including in AppData, system directories etc.. I've looked in almost every folder for traces of stuff from NVIDIA.
Nothing has worked. I tried using the Windows Update version of the driver. So many things I've tried. Been going at this for days now. Usually I can figure this stuff out or magically get it to work.. not this time..
The only way I can get into Windows is either keep the driver un-installed or just disable it in device manager.
Also, it's not the actual card. Again, it gets to the welcome screen / login screens fine and you can tell the NVIDIA driver has been loaded as things look pretty again.
Is there an ini file I can do this with or something?
