So i am trying to connect my media PC to a westinghouse 42" 1080P LCD HDTV. when booting windows XP everything looks fine but getting past the boot screen the screen flashes on and off and occasionally there is some pixelated purple's, yellows, and greens. I had my graphics card overclocked slightly and immediately set that back to factory specs, No Joy. switched HDMI cables, no joy. I adjusted the resolution from 800x600 up to 1980x1080 (max resolution, i'm pretty sure that's what it was). Graphics card worked fine on a 15in monitor running burn in tests of furmark just to check for full functionality
that is the graphics card specs, it says the max resolution is 2560x1600
