Re: sound but no picture
With the price of the new tv's, I would recommend getting a new tv. It's only a 19" and you can get a flat panel 19" for less than $ 200.00 It may cost you $ 100 plus to get it repaired along with any new parts. If you want to spend less money try looking at the yard sales, people are always selling used TV's for cheap.

Not following... This is what I think you may be saying: You can't get the TV to use the RCA input?
The reason for my confusion is "rca surround sound". RCA will only carry left and right channel (stereo). It can't push surround sound unless it's setup as a direct input [typically an 8 channel input, where you would have 8 RCA cables (or 4 pair) connected]. The headphone jack, if using a 4-pin headphone jack (it has 4 sections of metal, vs a 3-pin, which only has 3 sections of metal), may be able to send something closer to surround sound, but it wouldn't be a true surround sound. You would need to use fiber optic, HDMI, DVI, or digital coax cable.
The sound settings in the OS on the computer need to be set to push the surround sound, or it will only push stereo. You'll probably need to spend some time there testing all the setting options.
The easiest thing to try is change the screen resolution before connecting via HDMI. The process is a little different depending on what operating system you're using.
For Windows Vista/Windows 7:
1. Right click on your desktop and select "Screen Resolution"
2. Slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024.
3. Click apply.
For Windows XP:
1. Right click on your desktop and select "Properties"
2. Click on the tab to the far right that says "Settings"
3. Under Screen Resolution, slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024.
4. Click apply.
Either of these resolutions should at least give you picture when you reconnect with HDMI. Once you get a picture, repeat these steps and gradually move the slider higher to get a better resolution picture. If you receive the incompatible signal message again, just wait 15 seconds and the previous setting will be restored.
If this doesn't work, you may also have to adjust the screen refresh rate. From the same window that has the screen resolution adjustment bar, click the link or button that says "Advanced." The second tab, "Monitor," has a drop-down menu to adjust the screen refresh rate. Depending on your HDTV, the most common setting for this could be 60 Hz, 70 Hz, or 120 Hz. If none of those values work for you, you should check the manual that came with your TV to check what the proper resolution and refresh rate should be for your computer connection.
It does sound like an overheating problem, although i have also found that this card doesn't work particularly well on all AMD motherboards, although it's an asus card and asus mobo you are using, it is the nvidia chip.
You may find an ATI chip card works better on your board.
Also check the voltage on your AGP slot as newer cards work on less voltage than the older ones.
