    I am running a 9600 XT on a winxp machine. When I add my tv to the card via the s video connection, it displays the desktop on the tv fine, but no color, just black and white. I first had my monitor hooked to the dvi plug, and then switched it to the vga plug. Didnt make any difference as to the color problem to the tv, still no color. I know its not the tv, b/c I had it connected to my old fx 5200 card, and it worked fine.

    Dont know if this matters with the ati card, but I have an s video to rca adapter, so I can run a rca cable to the tv. Any ideas?

    my tv had the same problem on my 6600GT. I am using the Component input on my TV (HDTV). I'd be interested in any theories, as well.

    I also had a fx 5500 oc, which I swapped with the 9600 xt, and the color was good on the tv. So at least I know for sure it's something with the card. Would sure like to get back to the 9600 tho...

    jollyogre, dont know if this will help yours, but my problem was with the s-cable to rca adapter cable. I was using one that came with an nividia card. switched it out with the one that came with my ati card, problem resolved... hell, I figured all the adapter cables were the same, obviously not.

    I'm using component, not composite.
