Hi there

I am using an ADVENT 7113 notebook with Vista Home premium and my tv out projection is in black & white.
I need this fixed as I run a karaoke and the words are black and white which is pants.
Im using a 4 pin tv out lead which is connected to a scart point and then plugged in to the pubs main scart junction box.
Everything else is fine apart from no color, the settings seem fine but i am scratching my head.
Any help greatly appreciated.

you can try updating your video drivers and see if that helps. If not then you may need to try another svideo cable. It sounds like pin 4 (color) is not making contact of some sort.

Also try changing the video refresh rate on the output. That sometimes causes that issue.
