  1. Hi, i just connected my comp to my tv via s-video cable . I have an nvidia geforce 4 mx420 card. The tv is a 57 inch big screen. I got it set up fine but the picture on my tv barely has any color and it has bars going up/down left/right creating a grid. I read somewhere to fix the color i had to check a box that says s-video but i cant find it anywhere. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks much

    is your tv and hdtv? if it is then it might be the problem using s-video. s-video has max res of 640*480, hdtv is 1920*1080, so that may explain the grids, where there are empty pixels. try using dvi (if ur tv has one) or component, both will allow 1920*1080
