hello all. i have never posted anything before, so this is my first. I have a laptop acer aspire 3680. i purchased a grandtec pc to video ez in order to use the tv as monitor. tv only has video in/out and audio in/out and does not have s-video. So, the grandtec convertor is the inbetween box. if i boot up than the tv will show the boot up process, but when windows comes up, the tv cancels out and the laptop comes up. can i see the laptop on the tv when windows is up? anyways, thanks for assisting.
