TV out problem with Sapphire Radeon 9800

  1. I have a Sapphire Radeon 9800 pro, 256MB.

    I've used the TV out part of the card several times to watch films / play games on the TV.

    I'm now having a problem where by my monitor will not display anything in DOS whilst booting. But as soon as Windows has finished booting and is waiting for the password the monitor gives a display.

    If I turn on the TV I get the boot screens all the way through to the Windows boot screen when it switches back to the Monitor.

    This happens regardless of whether the TV out lead is connected or not.

    I've also tried formatting and reinstalling Windows. Also tried using some different drivers.. (was running ATI catalyst drivers before, now running omega drivers)

    I'm at a loss now, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
