  • Help! Monitor (PC to Avic-N1 via RCA) won't display anything after boot up screen!

    I have a boldata pc and i'm trying to display it onto my Avic N1. I plugged a RCA video cable from the pc to the Avic-N1 brain (Video in). I boot the computer up and it displays the boot up screen perfectly on the Avic N1. However, once the boot up is finished loading, the monitor just stops displaying what's on the PC.

    I'm assuming that this is a driver problem and i've been looking EVERYWHERE for the appropriate driver.

    I have WinXP on the boldata PC - Intel® 810E Chipset with AGP and Ultra ATA.

    Can somebody please help me get this display to stay on past the boot up? I feel like it's so close but it just stops displaying after the boot up!

    Thanks!

    The resolution could likely be set too high.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      did you set the pc up on a VGA screen 1st and enable the composite out? you may need to conenct a screen to do this then reboot.

      Other than that is there anything in the bios and is your bios up to date?

        I'm just trying to display video, a basic yellow rca to yellow rca cable.

        The problem is the drivers the computer came with are useless. They aren't working properly. Therefore, I havn't enabled anything. The avic-n1 does display everything up until the boot up, then it suddenly stops displaying.

        Any suggestions in terms of drivers? I hate to say this, but i'm a Mac dude and i'm not too good with windows. Only reason I bought it is because the majority of car apps are windows based.

          I just lowered the resolution a whole lot (640x480) and tried it. Still didn't work.

          Which drivers do I need (if that's even the problem). Currently, it says I have this driver: Miniport Driver for Intel Graphics Driver, Version: 5.13.01.2772

            computer needs to be started with a vga monitor and the rca monitor then set as the primary. this should work.
