    I do occasionally connect it to my TV, using a DVI to HDMI cable and I also have an ATI Radeon video card, but I've never had that happen.

    There's a chance, but generally they work or they don't.

    It could be, but I'd lean toward the TV actually.

    But it could be the video card, the driver, or even a glitch in the video player. What video player are you using, or does this also happen when you're doing other things as well? ATI releases a driver each month, Catalyst 7.3 should be out anything now - each driver release generally has at least one TV output fix.

    Oh, and whats the resolution and refresh you have it set at now?

    Sounds like the drivers still didn't install correctly.

    Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall all the ATI software, only reboot once they are all uninstalled.

    Then use DriverCleaner to remove any and all ATI drivers and files: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/Driver-Cleaner-Professional.shtml

    Then reboot and reinstall the drivers.

    And there's also System Restore if that doesn't work.
