I'm trying to get a DVD to work in my computer and I get the message that I need to disable the tv out function but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to do that :o Any ideas?

That's a puzzling one because DVD is precisely the main thing TV out is for. Right click on your desktop and choose "Properties" go to the "Settings" tab and choose Advanced. Look for a "Displays" tab and see if there is an option to disable it. Hope this helps.

...you want the Device Manager...right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager...find the TV Out...double-click...disable in Device Usage... :)

...though, as Knizzle says, it's a bit of a mystery why it's asking you to do that anyway... :confused:

...don't disable anything if you're not sure what it is though... :)

Here is the exact message that I get... First I get "TheTV Out port of your display card is not working properly." when I click on detailed, it says "This copy protected disc can not be played when the TV out function is enabled."

:scratch:

...copy protection is a pain in the arse...I don't think you can disable the TV out if you have integrated graphics...except in the BIOS...which I wouldn't recommend...I think you're stuffed...but I'll try asking someone else...might take a while though... :(
