    Many laptop display controllers will only send the video signal a small distance before it will cut out.

    I feel that 6ft is way too far for that controller to send the signal

        To be honest...I don't know.

        I have heard people talk in terms of inches rather than feet.

        Your milage may vary, however!

          try 5ft, then 4, 3, etc. see which one works, then stop. it'd be better if you go down from 6' by .5 fr

          did that make sense?
