I have an old Dell PC that I got from my job that I put Windows 2000 SP4, 120 GB hard drivem200mhz. I brought a used ATI Radeon 7000, 32MB which did not come with the original disk so we had to download drivers.
My husband has a S-Video cable running from the PC to the TV so that we are able to clone the PC Monitor on to the TV. It works fine until an error occurs having to do with the driver and then the TV goes black and white.
Not sure how to fix it. We are wondering if the S-Video connection to the card is bad. It is a used card and the cable is brand new. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be and how we can fix it would be greatly appreciated.

If your video card is only 8MB i don't believe that meets the minimum requirements.
So you might not be able to play this game with your current video card.
Requirements: Operating System: Windows Vista, XP or 2000 CPU: 3.0 GHz P4, Dual Core 2.0 or AMD64X2 (or higher) RAM: 1 GB for XP / 2GB for Vista Disc Drive: DVD-ROM Drive Hard Drive: At least 7.5 GB of free space Video Card: Direct X 9 compatible (must be 256 MB or more with support for pixel shader 2.0) Sound Card: Direct X9.0c compatible
maybe your monitor is too old to your pc.. because it can't catch up the HI frequency of Graphics that you set up in your system.. but lets check first your system.. you need to get a new monitor or an extra one taht can capture the frequency of your system.. then ill give you the step.. here it is.. in windows XP,, right click on desktop then properties.. after you click the properties a windows will appear.. display properties..go to setting, below click advance., then find monitor in general tab. then you see there the monitor setting... try to change it to 60 hertz... then restart your pc then try to use your old monitor.. ^^
windows does not recognize the tv and if you are using a cloned driver it is trying to use the tv with the vid adaptor drivers as the tv drivers you are using the basic generic drivers from MS beacause it does not know what it is download the proper drivers and go from there
