SVIDEO Connection Black and white screen with fuzzy reception

  1. When I switch the Video card over to use the TV as the monitor I get a black and white picture with fuzzy reception which just provides lines and such. I checked to be sure the SVIDEO cables and digital sound cables were connected tight and properly and they were. Did I mess up a setting? How can I fix this? Thanks

    Do you have the latest Vista video drivers installed on your HP Slimline?

    hmm, now the connection works but I get a black and white screen which sometimes goes back to the standard monitor.

    Try switching the output between NTSC and PAL.

    Also, are you sure that you switched your TV to S-Video mode? (What kind of cables exactly are you using?)
