Can't get output to my television from my video card

I have an nvidia video card and I'm tying to connect to my tv. The problem is its a very old tv. I've managed to find out that the refresh rate for the tv is 50 hz, but no matter what I do I can't get it to display anything.
Plugging the playstation in the same RCA input gets me works fine. So its not the tv. Or is it?
Is there any way to get it to work or are there just certain 'very old' tv's that can't do it?
Thanks in advance.

This seems to be a compatibility issue, make sure that 'video card' is supported by your tv model.

Why can we not connect our smart tv to Netflix from our computer


You have to go the display in control panel to find graphic card of computer and select both output for monitor and tv .this so you can still control the setting via computer.once TV is connected just simply switch off the monitor until you need to set things back as they were. Nvidia and Ati graphic cards usually have their own software run on the desktop to adjust things like output to TV.

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.

How To Use My Olevia Television As A Computer Monitor


There are a number of ways this can be done. It will depend a lot on the graphics card you are using in your computer. All graphics cards released for the last few generations from both ATI and Nvidia (and all Intel IGPs labeled HD) have an HDMI output. This is the simplest option. You simple connect the TV via HDMI, set it to the right output, and power up the computer.

If you do not wish to use the speakers in the TV, then you can manually set the audio output to default to your other speakers.

If your graphics card/computer does not have an HDMI output, you will need to buy an adapter for one of the other outputs. DVI to HDMI would be the best second options. Then S-Video (which should look like a circle with dots a a line in it) to component (5 inputs, 3 video/2audio). The adapter will only have plugs for the video.

Any connections beyond this should be avoided as they will not be able to match the resolution of the TV. Forcing the TV or graphics card to upscale say a VGA connection to the proper resolution will create a lot of distortion and give you a terrible image.

Will my 64mb GF2 support dvi and / or hdmi connection (I want to get a flat panel monitor)


Not directly......but no worries!

All hope is not lost with just the VGA out on your card!

First, every flat panel monitor I have ever seen has a VGA input, so your GeForce2 card will still work!

VGA is still the top analog signal standard for computers. I am writing this with my on-board NVIDEA GeForce, connected to a Viewsonic VA2226w flat panel monitor using VGA and set at a resolution of 1680X1050!

Almost forgot..... just ignore the "TV Out" on your card.... this is old school and will give you nowhere near the quality you will get from VGA.... it was meant as a "crowd pleaser" to allow people to connect to their old school big screen TV sets.

Get the flat panel display... you will find out that it will work just fine with your VGA connection.

Problem installation video card


Hello Virna, i have that exact graphics card and dell GX270 desktop here at home, tho it has been awhile since i removed the Nvidia PCI card for a more favorable AGP card. From what i remember, first check your BIOS (hit F2 on startup) and select integrated devices, scroll down and make sure your default video output is either PCI (if available) or AUTO) exit saving changes. If that yields no result. Plug in a second monitor to your old integrated video output, if you can view windows after bootup from there, then you can install the proper Nvidia display driver for windows Xp (available here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html ). After installing, right click on the desktop, select properties, display settings tab, and make sure the Geforce card is the main monitor and the desktop monitor. Click apply, unplug the integrated VGA output, and restart. Hope this helps.

How to set my audio to hdmi while connecting my tv to my pc. my graphic card is Gforce 9600


I am pretty sure that the nVidia GeForce 9600 series of video cards use a DVI connector, not an HDMI connector.

While the HDMI connector has the ability to transfer digital and analog audio across it, the DVI cable does not.

You can connect a DVI video card to an HDMI display, and it is compatible for the VIDEO portion, but again, the DVI connector does not output audio at all.

You will need to connect the audio outputs of your audio card or motherboard to your TV by using a 3.5mm headphone jack to RCA jack adapter.

Your graphics card is probably too old to support HDTV signal (720p, 1080p)
