Hi guys, having a problem with my radeon 9800 pro card. Windows xp sp3

I installed the card and hooked up my moniter and my tv (tv using the s-video output) When I fired the computer up for the first time I had tv output all the way into windows...and then the found new hardware thing popped up (not the wizard just the notification) as soon as that popped up I got no display on the tv. I went to the device manager and under the display section I've got two: radeon 9800 pro, and radeon 9800 pro SEC. I uninstalled the latter one and rebooted the system, now I get tv right up until the windows logon screen. It doesn't matter which one I disable or uninstall it is the same. I downloaded and installed the latest ati catalyst driver (and bundled software) and now I don't get any tv out except the odd flicker...even in bootup. So I uninstalled the newest drivers and I'm back at square one

Am I missing some important step here? I had tv out until windows automatically installed the driver

Thats normal behavior. You should have two entries for the card since it supports dual outputs. Install the latest drivers and software for the card: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownlo...px?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.22&lang=English
Once you install that it installs the Catalyst Control Center. Access it through teh All Programs Menu or the System Tray, or by right-clicking on the desktop. Thats where you can enable the secondary display and TV-Out. You need to keep the resolution for that output down to 640x480 as thats all you'll get through S-Video with a TV.

Catalyst Control Center info: http://ati.amd.com/products/catalystcontrolcenter/index.html
