    Post Trident Video Card

    I have a Trident Video card and there are a few places to plug things in that I don't know what I can do with them. The video card is a pci card and it has a regular monitor (VGA) plug, RCA (TV-OUT), and it looks like s-video. Aslo on the card itself there are a few plugs TV RGB OUT and VMI Port. What can I do with those plugs? Can I use the RGB to run a lobtop screen????

    if you search, you'll see that to use a laptop screen you need to have a vga controller card made for lcd's...which cost around 200 dollars.

    I have tested 3 video cards. ATI AIW PRO PCI 8MB, Trident 9685 4MB with TV-out (PCI) and the MSI6215 bookPC with TV-OUT ( on intel 815 chipset)
    Out of all of them i couldn't get the ATI to stretch and fill my 5.6" LCD but on the trident and the intel chipset I was able to do so. The newest intel chipset is very good by the way, I highly recommend the MSI bookPC.

    i have a PCI jaton trident card with tv out and i get the problem with overscan too. The only way i know of to overscan it is to go into display properties (right click on desktop->properties) and do it manually every time you boot up. I did alot of looking into registry hacking and couldnt find the variable. I just gave up and am dealing with no overscan until i can get a ATI AIW card.

    I had the same Jaton PCI Video card (Trident 9685 chipset) I don't know if that's the same one you guys have but I run WinMe and I got overscan to work perfectly from drivers at www.tridentmicro.com Just use their win9x driver for the Trident9685 and it works beautifully... I have a 4MB memory and I can play divx, dvd flawlessly....provided you gotta machine with decent speed ( 600mhz celeron 128MB RAM). WinME OEM drivers are ****ty..don't even use that.

    i tried using those drivers, but i havent had a chance to try it on the LCD yet. The weird this is that those drivers are older than the ones that ship with the video card. These drivers dont offer an option for choose overscan in the display properties. Mine is NOT overscanning even when the bios launches, so would this fix it?
