I just purchased a Geforce 5200 128mb ddr video card. Now, when I try to hook up my s-video out on the video card to my TV, this is when it all becomes a disaster.
My TV does not have any s-video or rca hookups, so I'm routing it through my vcr. My vcr has three rca (r,w,y) hookups.
Now what i did was I bought an s-video to rca(yellow) adapter. So I'm basically running an s-video out from my video card to an rca(yellow) in on my vcr.
The second that I plug in the rca cable from my vcr into the rca to s-video converter(already connected into the video card out), this is when the computer is on, the fuse in my room blows and I lose all power for the enitre circuit in by bedroom. I have to go in the basement and reset all the circuit breakers!!
Now I think that is crazy, that a the circuit breaker would get blown if I just plug in my video card to a vcr. The circuit in my room is by no means overloaded. I am 100% sure it only goes out when I try to connect the video card to my VCR.
I don't believe I'm doing anything wrong in the hookups, what is going on??
