S-Video TV Problems after Driver Update

  1. Hello everyone,

    I had been using an S-Video to Composite connection from my GeForce 6800GT to my old Standard Def TV(Clone) with no problems until I updated my graphics drivers a few months back. I'm not exactly sure if the update is the cause of the problem, but after a while of trial & error it would be my best guess. At first, it worked almost perfectly; the picture, color, etc were all great.. but now almost everything is messed up and distorted.. even during start-up, before windows loads. I've tried messing around with the settings and all but nothing seems to work. I even bought another S-Video/Composite cable with same results. If anyone can help me out, I would be very grateful:).

    Thanks

    Hi

    Have you tried doing a roll back to before you upgraded using the system restore function.?

    Hey

    I have tried System Restore a few times, but it tells me they were unable to restore settings or something and that no changes were made. I guess my only other option is to reformat my harddrives and start over again. Thanks.
