Hello there

 

I have just spent a lot of time and effort fitting a HDMI Cable under my floor boards so that I can send videos etc from my PC to my TV , when I first connected my HDMI cable to my Graphics card on my TV  ( my monitor is connected to my graphics card via VGA cable  ) ,  I got my desktop image but no icons were showing .

 

I messed about with the AMD Catylist Control centre settings , then I got icons showing on the TV , but when I come out of the AMD Control Center and re booted , they did not show and now when I plug in the HDMI cable into my PC , then click on a icon it does not load up to a full screen just shows on the bottom task bar , if I hover over the icon then it will show a mini full page obove it , and the info on the task bar is not all there ( No , audio icon, ENG as in keyboard icon , or internet icon ) but the TV is showing all the task bar !

 

So I do not know what has happened I can not do any settings with the HDMI cable plugged in because there is no full screen to see anything .

 

Has anyone got any idea what the problem could be , I am thinking of removing the Graphics card uninstalling the AMD Control Center then reistall card etc ! .
