Hello hopefully someone can help me. I installed a Geforce 8400gs pci into my pc today. I just wanted it for the Tv-out. I have windows 7 64bit. When I first installed it everything was fine but than the monitor kept losing signal so I reinstalled the card. Well when I first installed the card I got full screen on my tv but after this install there is a picture in the middle with black bars on the sides. Its like that on the monitor and the tv when I pair them up. I kept trying different settings but nothing worked. Then I thought I should update the driver. Well when I updated to the latest driver the graphics card stopped recognizing my tv. I restarted several times and uninstalled then reinstalled the drivers with no luck. When I uninstall the drivers from the website and reinstall the drivers from my cd I get a picture on my tv but still black all around the sides. I know it can get full screen cause I already had it. Does anyone know why updating my graphics card stops the signal to my tv? Upgrading my card will not matter if I can figure out how to get full screen back. I connect with S-video. Thanks

Have you tried adjusting the monitor...for the new card?

A monitor has horizontal and vertical adjustments which control the presence/amount of screen viewed, as well as other settings. Take a look at the directions/controls for your monitor.

Yes I tried that. Its just moved the screen but the screen needs to be stretched. I guess the monitor is adjusting to the tv. When I first installed the card I really did not do anything and it was full screen.

Take the TV out of the equation...connect your system to your monitor and adjust it properly.

Once that is straight, you can worry about the TV connection.
