    No video on second screen

    I have a laptop as my carpc, and have an issue with video. The video plays fine on the laptop screen, however not on the lcd for my carpc. Does this sound like a windows issue, or a driver issue? If it's a driver issue, would it be the video card (radeon 9000)?

    Well, have you tried new drivers?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    While trying to fix the problem, I ended up messing up the display, so I spent most of the day fixing it in the first place. I found a thread in the faq that would have helped me, had I not made it worse.

    When I had checked about a year ago, my only option was my oem driver, however since then ATI has put out a mobile version of their drivers and catalyst software, so I was able to download that. The installer wouldn't work for my configuration but I was able to install the driver and catalyst software manually, and then I was able to clone the laptop to the car LCD using the Catalyst software.

    For the mobility 9000, you can use the modified drivers from Omega's site up to Catalyst 6.1 (where I think ATI dropped support for the 9000)...with his drivers, you can do custom resolutions, which is very, very useful to get a clear display on 7" Xenarcs and Lilliput's and the like (800 X 480). You might have better luck with those drivers because they have built-in support for the 9000, no "manual force" required.
    I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)
