Ryan,


Sounds like a nice setup you have going there, but the TV is going to be fussy about resolution. You need to plug in a regular monitor to adjust the resolution to something higher than 800x600, preferably 1280x720, make sure the screen comes back up on the monitor, then reboot the computer with your tv plugged in.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.


Thanks.

It displays colorful lines on the monitor...cant see nothing


Test your laptop with an external monitor and find out if the external video goes bad too. If both, internal and external images go bad, you have a problem with the video card.
If external works fine and only internal goes bad, most likely it’s either bad video cable or LCD screen failure.

It could have something to do with the graphics card but the lines that show up have me thinking that it has to do with the monitor. The only way to know for sure is to hook up the monitor to another MAC and if you still get lines then you'll know its the monitor. If your still unsure, get the Radeon 1900 graphic cards upgrade kit replaced, if you still get the lines then you'll know its the monitor, if the lines go away then you know its the video card.

White screen "


Your display problem may be in the graphics controller on the motherboard. It might also be in the display itself, which contains a lot electronics. Yet another possibility is that the system is freezing up completely, and the white screen is the result.

Since it takes a while for the screen to go white, the trouble is most likely due to something heating up. I've fixed a lot of laptops that freeze up because the processor chip overheats. Sometimes it's because the fan isn't working, or the screws holding the fan assembly down work loose.

Hook up an external monitor to the laptop for testing. You might need to enable the external VGA connector with a function key before you'll see anything. If the motherboard is freezing up, the external monitor will quit as well when the laptop display goes white. If the computer keeps working normally with the external monitor, though, you know the trouble is in the graphics circuitry or display.

Unfortunately, it's hard to say for sure whether the motherboard or display is at fault. My experience has been that a completely blank display is usually a motherboard failure, but not always. Failures in the display itself usually cause lines or other problems with the image, but you still see something.

Replacement motherboards are often available at reasonable prices, but displays often are not. You may want to take this computer to a service shop and let them figure it out and give you a repair estimate. That way you won't wind up buying a part that may be costly and not fix the trouble.

I hope this helps you decide what to do. Thanks for using Fixya!

I cant play nba 2K9! when i launch the game my monitor becomes black!


It goes black because the monitor you are using does not support the resolution you are trying to force through it from the video card. Start at 1024 X 768, if the screen shows on the monitor than that is a good start. If it doesn't then I would suggest getting on the manufacturer's web site and downloading the latest drivers. I'm pretty sure you are dealing with a driver issue.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?


For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.

Black screen


try starting in safe mode, by pressing F8 when the computer first starts up keep pressing it, click, click, click not holding. then goto display setting in control panal, and change your monitor type, if you can't find your monitor listed use a defult 800X600 one. it sounds like your monitor is not capable of displaying the resolution xp wants to use.
