  • Up and running!...kind of.

    OK, have everything put together and functioning properly.

    M10K
    Windows ME (I know!)

    Machine boots and displays fine on VGA monitor!

    Connected to Sony Trinitron via the S-Video cable and machine boots and displays VIA splashscreen, then Windows ME splashscreen.

    Will not display desktop. Blank screen.

    Suggestions? Also tried with RCA cable, same results.

    Thanks in advance.

    sorry if this is a stupid question, but have you configured your software to make the s-video/rca out a primary out (since EPIA only supports one monitor at a time)?

    also, latest drivers?

    can you get the desktop to show up with the monitor plugged in through advanced desktop controls?

      I assume the outs are working since the TV displays the splash screens at start up. I have not tried the advanced desktop controls.

        sometimes splash screen works but then when VGA drivers initialize it looks for a monitor to output too unless you have it set to use S-video as a primary monitor.
        Just a thought.

          Might me out of frequency...what resolution r u putting it at? Those splash screen are on lower resolution 640. So that might be the reason. Try lowering your desktop resolution.
