No image on tv using video card.

I just hooked up my computer to my tv using an s-video cable, and it shows my desktop image on the screen. thats it. i'm trying to watch movies from my hard drive and nothing will show on the tv but that desktop image. u have went through all the settings for the card and nothing seems to work. i can adjust the resolution of the picture, the size of the screen, and all that good stuff, but its just frozen on the desktop picture. no icons even, just the pic. i restarted the computer and it looked like it was going to cooperate with the windows is starting up screen, then it just goes back to the desktop. please help, this can save me a lot of money if i can get this working. thanks

Re: No image on tv using video card.

If you open the Radeon software utility, in the advanced screen settings you should be able to set "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" to on for the TV screen. Then all you have to do is open your video player software and drag its window across to the tv, then maximise it. If you are having trouble doing this, some video player programs, especially dvd players playing dvds will not show the picture on the tv. If you want to watch .avi files then the best free player around at the minute is DivxPlayer - go to to download. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)

S-video out to tv nvidia 9300 gforce won't work

obvious things first. have you tried the other input plugs on the TV? do you get the same problem with plugs 1 and 2?
you can try only having the TV connected to the Graphics card and turning on the PC see if it comes up as the primary display automatically.
have you tried configuring the Nvidia setting so ONLY the tv is a display instead of dual monitor?
doing these will rule out faulty cable or faulty S-video plug or Faulty TV input plug.

If you have the right drivers set up for your video card, you should be able to to set up screen mirroring from your display settings. Right-click on your desktop, select Screen Resolution and make sure both screens are showing up. If they are, then under Multiple displays, select Duplicate these displays. That should get it working for you.

I used a VGA to TV Converter cable but I am not getting nothing at all on my tv

Go to your start menu, then go to control panel > display ( or appearance and personalization ) > go to your search bar > type in "monitor". you should see one that says "how to set up multiple monitors, click on that. If you see two monitor screens on the next screen that means your computer knows its hooked up to a tv, you may need to check the box "extend this desktop on monitor". If that doesnt work then you can try to use the trouble shooting option if that helps.

Hope this helped.

Right click on your desktop, go into properties, then click on the settings tab. There should be a check box that says extend my desktop on this monitor. Make sure it's unselected.

Personally I never liked s-video, especially when you have component available. But I think that the pins in the cable on one end is either real dirty, or possibly bent. There could also be foreign debris in the input/output ( TV/PC ) of the adapters. Or the cable you have just is no good. Hopefully it's not the video card itself. Try hooking up a VGA monitor and run it the same amount of time you do with the TV connected.If that's OK, try canned air in the input/output ( TV/PC ) ,and replace the S-Video cable. Good Luck!!

Its not realy a problem i am trying to find a video card that will send the images to my tv

Well if you do a search for a grapics cards with TV-Out you will find plenty of them out there to choose from. Some with HDMI(for HI-DEF) hook ups or S-video(not as great but dose the job), just gotta figure out what type of slots you have on your motherboard - AGP, PCI, and PCI-E(newer pcs) and how big(mb size) of a card you want depending if u play games or just looking for a small upgrade to make you computer run a bit smoother.

Note- if u do get TV-Out You will need to buy a S-video cable or HDMI(for HI-DEF) most of the cables that are supplyed with the card only seem to be no longer then 3 - 4 foot long.. also the tv that your trying to put images on make sure it has an S-video connection on it or a HDMI connection. Confirm the slot type on the motherboard with the computer manufacturer.
