Default HELP: Nvidia tv-out woes.... :S

Interesting... my PC boots up Windows 2000 Advanced Server in colour on TV (with generic gfx drivers since GeForce 4 drivers weren't out then).

However, I then additionally installed Windows XP SP2 (on another partition) and it went black & white on TV. WindowsXP using it's shipped GeForce 4 generic drivers (as it is labeled in Display properties).

I then installed recent Nvidia drivers and guess what, my TV screen goes blank white!

Does anyone know how to sort this out? Is it Nvidia bug? I am using S-Video out to scart.

Select the correct signal format, PAL/NTSC from the box, then in the other box, try selecting 'composite' and applying, and 's-video' then applying. I say this because I have known this to be wrong or inverted before, and this is what can cause the Black and White signal.

If you do this properly you should get a colour signal. Let me know if this helps
Thanks I will try that.

Just to let everyone know. I managed to solve the "blank white screen" problem. I uninstalled the "latest" Nvidia drivers.... and installed an older version... last years I think.. .version 40.xx something... It works and I get full power of my Nvidia card. Still black n white... but tonight I will try Pepperoni7 advice to get colour again. Cheers dudes!
