This is an old-school question.

I've got my Windows XP SP3 laptop hooked up to my Philips 7000 series 42" hd tv via an s-video cable (the Dell Latitude d810 has vga and s-video out).

How do I get Windows XP drivers for my 42" Philips? Philips.com - under 'software' - only has firmware upgrades for the tv itself. Doing a search at MS reveals that my tv is compatible with Windows 7 and Vista - but with no option to download a la carte drivers.

Anyone have luck with this? Advise please.
Thanks - in advance -

and welcome to the Forum

You should not need drivers for the TV . . you might need new drivers for the video card in order for it to work with the TV.

What happens now when you connect the TV?

Hmmm. Good point. With the s-video cable established between the Dell laptop and the HD TV, Windows XP finds the TV and through the display properties 'settings' tab asks if I want to extend my desktop to it. Upon checking that box - the desktop appears on the HD TV - my display options are 1024x768 and highest color quality.

When I go to Advanced>Monitor>Driver>Update to try to load a driver for the Philips - even one of the standard ones (flat screen 1600x1200 or whatever) Windows ignores whatever I choose, leaving the monitor driver generic.

As I type this, I'm thinking upgrading the video card driver might be the best route. Thanks for that tip. Will report back.

you do your settings from the video card software

Virus keeps redirecting google and bing to other sites.
After opening a "bad" site two days ago, a virus/malware keeps redirecting google and Bing searches to other sites. The Google page comes up but then when you click on a link, it redirects you to a page you don't want. Also keep getting a script error that concides with a "site visited" going to...
