The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.

Why is my screen "snowy pink" when plugged into the dvi of my Viewsonic from my computer,

This is usually caused by a cable not completely plugged in on either end - computer or monitor. I would check that 1st. If not, try a different cable, that would be the 2nd choice.

Wireless printing

you need to set the ip on the printer to within the ip range of your wireless router. Then you need to install a mac book pro driver for the canon i960 on the Mac Pro. THe mac pro should then automatically detect the printer and hook up to it

Mac book pro. Black screen cannot start but with boot sound

Have you tried connecting an external monitor.

A boot chime means the Mac has passed POST, that the screen remains black initially suggests there is a problem getting image to screen which could mean a bad cable to the LCD or the LCD display its self is having problems.

By connecting to an external display you verify the graphics on the logic board is functional, and it could get you up and running till the display problem is fixed.

Also try powering up and when you hear the chime, hold down the COMMAND+OPTION+P+R keys, and keep holding them till the machine has chimed 3 times, this will reset the 'BIOS' in case there is a glitch there stopping the display from showing up.

You need to change the refresh rate, some monitors operate on 60 Hertz, and others on 70 or 72 Hertz, try changing the refresh next to the resolution choices.

Screen was very strange looking, with nothing but streaks. unhooked it from computer (Mac Pro), shut down computer, rehooked, turned on monitor, rebooted Mac (hooked to other monitor), which came up...

I would try this with PC first or another MAC to make sure it is not video card problems.
If it still bad you may have to inspect the caps just like all failed VIEWSONIC as shown here.

Bought and HDMI to DVI Cable, Not Fully Functioning

Your setup is probably in "extended" mode - if you move the mouse back in forth, when it leaves the Mac Pro screen you should see it on the external plasma monitor. You can switch to "mirror" mode if you want to see the same thing on both screens. Or put the computer into "sleep" mode, close the lid, connect an external keyboard and the plasma display and wake it up by pressing keys on the keyboard. Then you should see the desktop on the monitor.
