TV Out on Toshiba Portege A100 won't work

I can’t get the TV Out port on my Toshiba Portege A100 to work. This is a Composite/RCA type port. I’ve followed the directions in the manual, but the TV icon is not listed in the Extreme Graphics properties.

Those listed are: Monitor, Notebook, Intel Dual Display Clone and Extended Desktop. Drivers are Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME version

I’ve uninstalled and re-installed the graphics drivers - the driver listed is the newest I could find. The method to connect to a TV (from the user manual) is 1. Turn off the laptop. 2.Connect to the TV and turn it on. 3. Turn on the laptop. The laptop should see a TV and give you the TV icon in the extreme graphics properties.

I’ve recently bought this laptop, and it’s been wiped and reloaded. Am I missing something here?


My guess would be that the utility that allows for video out is missing or not configured. You might try their website and see if there is a download.
