Hi there. Hope you can help with what might or might not be a graphics problem.

I've recently installed a couple of old games that I wanted to play again - Quake III Arena & Alien vs Predator.

The games themselves run fine, but the screens on both the games are so dark!

I've tried everything from upping the brightness etc in each of the setup screens to max, upped the brightness & contrast on my monitor, but no change.

The visuals look absolutely fine on everything else, DVD's, Video Clips, Media files etc, so I'm wondering if it could be a problem with the Graphics card.

Another recent development is that I've always had an s-video cable connected between the s-video output on the card to the TV. This normally results in whatever is shown on the monitor is also shown on the TV. I use a piece of software called TV-Tool to set this up, but now I can't get anything on the TV at all. This is accessed on the AV4 input on the TV.

The graphics card is an NVIDIA Gforce4 MX440.

Does any of this make sense or is there something really stupid I've overlooked

ps - the monitor is an old bog standard 60Hz monitor and I'm running W2K SP4

Thanks in advance!
