Question about ATI RADEON 7000 PCI Graphic Card

1 Answer

TV Monitor goes black and white

Good Evening,

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.

    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    Could you try looking over the different tabs, settings and configuration of the Display Properties? Somewhere would be an NTSC/PAL selector for the color system. Depending on where you are (region), the color system would have to match whatever is used by the TV. US is NTSC while almost all European/Australian wwould be PAL.

    Would appreciate an update. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

The hard drive may be going bad. Try booting into Safe Mode to see if it boots into Windows. Then I highly recommend backing up all documents onto a flash drive or portable hard drive.

1501 freeze randomly. put it on cool stand to eliminate overheating, still freezes ie: goes black and has a 1 inch square color lined area.

if you can take out the hard drive
would it still do the same thing
if the hard drive is over 5 years old
chances are you need to replace,
also system restore set back to when it worked good, and reinstall windows before buying new hard drive

You cannot just throw a hard drive from one computer into another there are specific programs that perform specific jobs for individual components that are different in all computers.
