    Ok, so tested the screen and it workds fine.

    I've played around with the settings and managed to get some sort of image from the S-video to appear on the screen but its scrolling downward really quickly. I can only get XP to go down to 640x480. Any way i can get it to go lower?

    It's really all based on your video card & mobo. You can use Powerstrip (you can download it, just google it) to manually force the resolution lower which might work in your case. The downside is that it reduces quality. You might also want to change the frequency a little bit. Play around with the display settings, you might find a setting that works.

    I've been toying around with Powerstrip too. In XP, the screen is detected as Generic TV on S3 Savage IX. When I select it in PS and go into advanced, the "Custom Resolutions" button is greyed out so I can't create anything lower.

    so does your desktop fit in the tv? It's not like zoomed in or anything? The thing with TV's is that they were not meant to display high resolution inputs like from a computer.

    I dont even get that, just a fast scrolling image with jumbled up colours. I can make out barely that its the desktop. I have a feeling the resolution and frequency is was too high. Its a 5.6" screen so have a 320x240 is going to be about right. Issue im having is i cant set custom res's for the screen in powerstrip.

    Hmm... im out of ideas man. It sounds like you're just not going to be able to use that monitor or your comp. One of them has got to go. Some other people might have an idea, you might be able to switch over to the monitor sub forum and get more attention there.
