Last night, after a reboot I lost the signal on my TV.
I've tried the following solutions:
- Replace the cable from the TV output. Nothing happened.
- Re-install nVIDIA drivers. Nothing happened.
- Uninstall drivers, remove card from slot and put it back again; install drivers. Nothing happened.
- Remove RCA cable and use a S-Video one instead. Nothing happened.
I realize it's not a Windows problem, 'cause before I was able to watch all boot screens and WinXP loading logo on both Monitor and TV. Now all I see on my TV is blue (no signal).
What can I do?? Help me please.
Have you had a look at the cords? Is there any damage to the hardware itself?
Maybe there is something else wrong. Tried running virus scans? I know it's a long shot but it's amazing at what viruses do to your machine.

Hi' Sir '' the video graphic cards and DDR 128 Ram are usually plug and play, just install to any selected slots and if you have the DVI TV OUT installer , when windows starts insert CD installer then follow command and install driver.
Just attach an external monitor to it and observe for several minutes while working on it. If the problem disappears, then it's time to check the screen signal cable and/or the screen itself. Only a qualified technician can handle the later except you are one. Good luck
THIS MAY BE DUE TO OUTDATED OR CORUPTED SOFTWARE OR EVEN DRIVER ISSUE.
I WOULD CHECK THE BATTERY ON THE MOTHERBOARD BECUASE IT LOOSING POWER REQUIREMENT TO KEEP THE BIOS INFORMATION SET, AND YOU LOOSE THAT AND YOU WILL LOOSE EVERYTHING THAT YOUR COMPUTER NEEDS TO FUNCTION IN THIS WORLD LIKE THE FOLLOWING:
HARD DRIVE INFO
BEST TO HAVE IT CHECK OUT NOW.
Firstly I want you to make sure that there are no damage to the connectors of your cables or on the ports on your screen card and TV, like bend or missing/dirty pins/wire connections.
Secondly make sure that the display is enabled in ATi Catalyst Control Center.
The connectors you will be using if I understand you correctly will be DVI-to-HDTV (Component video).

Check bios settings. ie. disable onboard video, enable PNP OS installed, enable "assign IRQ to vga", disable shadowing and caching, enable passive release, enable delayed transaction, vga boot sequence: AGP, set graphics aperture size to 128MB, disable turbo modes.
Verify power supply is at least 350 watts.
Reboot into safe mode (press F8 right after the BIOS POST screen and before the windows loading screen) and use the program, Driver Cleaner Pro to remove Nvidia video driver remnants. Don't select all of the options, just the Nvidia driver and the plain ATI selection.
Verify the monitor cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
Verify that you have connected the cable to the vga port on the card and not the onboard vga port. (I'm not implying that you are dumb or anything like that, but sometimes even the best of us, overlooks the simple things... especially me! LOL)
Verify the monitor cable is good.
(Last but not least), try using another monitor to test. (Could be an incompatibility with the monitor.)
