I decided I wanted to hook my computer up to my TV. I got an S-video to S-video cable. My Graphics card has an S-video out, my TV does not. My RF converter does however so I thought that would work. I have both my monitor and TV hooked up right now. But both only work in safe mode, and my TV is displaying the computer as B&W. I set my computer up to recognize my TV as the default display and its not working with windows normally and I can't get it back the original way, having my monitor display. The way it is now my monitor displays a blank screen and I can only see my mouse pointer when i move it and my TV displays B&W lines going across. That is when my computer is running in normal mode. The only way I can get to the Nvidia settings is to run in normal mode. And I can't because I can't see it the it is set up. I need help, this is stupid. I know now that having anything in between the graphics card and TV doesn't work, but its too late. However, my TV does display windows in B&W in safe mode and on booting up, so maybe there is hope?
Please help me
Thank you.
