  1. Hey guys got a really frustrating problem here.... I ran a hdmi cable from my desk to my tv named above. Every time i plug the lead in (regardless wether the tv is on or not) my laptops gets a blue screen error:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.0.6002.
    Locale ID: 2057

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 7f
    BCP1: 00000000
    BCP2: 00000000
    BCP3: 00000000
    BCP4: 00000000
    OS Version: 6_0_6002
    Service Pack: 2_0
    Product: 768_1

    So, i started with my graphics card (Nvidia Geforce 8600M GT) drivers... i removed them from my laptop, restarted with the lead plugged in. The laptop didnt crash however, didnt show on the tv still so I figured it was the software for my graphics card. I went to Nvidia website and downloaded the 179.48 version software but when i try to install that it says 'Setup detected that the operating system in use is not Windows vista [32-bit]. This setup program and its associated drivers are designed to run only on Windows Vista [32-bit].

    For this reason i checked that all my windows is up to date, and i downloaded/installed Windows Vista SP2. I am running out of solutions now when all i want to do is watch some blu ray movies on my tv Lol! pleassssseeee help!!!!
