    could be

    Driver issue - make sure you have latest drivers

    Connector issues - If you use adapter -> SCART connectors only supports composite video and therefore if you are using S-Video you will only be able to receive a black and white picture. If you are using S-Video connector you may wish to use the S-Video to SCART pro (pro-SCART-6)

    TV modes - PAL or NTSC -> make sure comp and TV are on same mode

    Try updating your video drivers? Change the screen mode from the PC to 800x 600 and the refresh to 60Hz.
