Connecting d-sub to HDTV

  belcanto 00:08 AM 06 Apr 10

Hi there, I have a XPC Shuttle ,with a AGP Nvidea 5600 graphics card. The card has both dvi and d-sub/vga ports on it. My main monitor packed up and I decided to use my Lexor HD tv which has a d-sub port on it. The PC is detected but on the screen, the colours are lurid shades of green and also the screen is very elongated.

This means that I cant see further down to make vany adjustments. Also the pictures do not fill all of the screen so I can only see the left had side and not the right. I hope that someone can help

PS: Update

I took out my agp graphics card and let win xp find the built-in graphics. It did so sucessfully as I shut the pc down totally and then re-started it. Horaay!!! I am hoping that if I put the AGP card back in, that it will re-size the screen properly, anyone got any thoughta?

May be, but if not all you need to do is rest the screen resolution and refresh rate to suit the TV.
