im sorry i dont know what bios are? also ive just been doing some research and I think I might need something like a scan converter???? because the TV isnt very modern. a lot more complicated than I had envisaged!
My neighbour just came round, who works with computers he fiddled with it a bit got a picture in Black and white, and also it was strangley aligned, so I had to drag over vlc player to the far right of my lapt- screen . He advised me to get a dvd player that plays div x instead . nothing is ever simple!
