So I'm hoping someone here can help me with my issue. I'm wanting to use my basement computer to play games/emulators and such on a 46" Toshiba LCD Tv I have set up in the basement. Its pretty old but was good when I got it. Running XP, 1GB RAM, dont remember the processor, nvidia 6600gt video card.
I have the TV hooked up with VGA and my primary monitor on my desk with dvi both out of the same video card. For some reason, whenever I use the TV to play games or do anything else, I'm getting serious input lag and slowdown. I have all the video processing stuff turned off on the TV so it shouldn't be causing any input lag on its own, or at least not to the extent of what I'm seeing. When I maximize a game it gets REALLY SLOWWWW.
Now, when I go into my display properties and change the TV to be my primary monitor, all this goes away. Both monitors become snappy and responsive. I can't really leave it like this though because I need the start menu on my main monitor on my desk for obvious reasons. I'm guessing its something i need to change in my video card settings to get this fixed, but it seems like I've tried everything I can think of, (changing resolutions, 60hz refresh rate has been set, etc.)
Just hoping some of you could give me some ideas on what to try. Thanks!
