Hi paulsart86.
Set your notebooks screen resolution down to 800x600 or lower.

Going to need to know a little more about what you're working with then paulsart86.
Notebook make and model number, television make and model.
Also, are you using your notebook as a dvd player and that's when the color goes or is it right from the desktop?

At the moment, this is going to be easier for both of us if you do some troubleshooting on your own so that we don't have to play 20 questions. :thumbsup:
Go here. In the "Problem Search" dialog box, type "s-video" (no quotes) and click the search arrow.
Under "Wizards" choose the "black and white picture through s-video port" and do the step by step troubleshooter.
Also see the knowledge base article section below the wizard section on how to configure your particular video adapter for use with an s-video>tv connection.
