G-Force FX 5500 TV out problem

by y2kenjination / January 30, 2006 9:56 AM PST

Hello, I have somewhat of an unsual problem. I purchased the PNY G-Force FX 5500 AGP 8X graphics card a few days ago...everything works like a charm on my computer monitor, but the problem is when I switch to my TV on TV out mode. I noticed that part of the desktop gets cut, and when I try playing video files, part of the video gets cut. I've tried everything possible such as updating my NVIDIA drivers, changing the resoluton, repositioning the desktop through the TV out option, but the video still gets cut regardless of what the resolution is. I was wondering what the problem might be...My previous video card had no problems when I switched to my TV, and I never had to make any sort of adjustments. I am running on Windows 2000, and my processor is an Intel Celeron 1.2 ghz. Thanks in advance.

It's normal for TV's to overscan so you never see the full desktop. Some TV's have a "game" switch to cut back on the overscan.

Thanks for your replay. Hmm...I looked in my TV options, and it doesn't seem to have any sort of game switch.
