    Don't type in capital letters. It's considered yelling.

    What Graphics card do you have in your system?

    well, first thing you could do is not to piss ppl off by typing in CAPS

    you cant get any image in the first place without a gfx card.

    and if your card is so powerful that you have yet come across a game that you cant play, im sure it has a video output.

    if not, get yourself a tv tuner card.

    EDIT: damn it, vb beat be to it

    as far as i know, tuner cards are input-only. tv-out is a feature of graphics cards...

    ... or of mpeg-decoder cards. such cards have pretty much gone out of fashion because Nvidia and ATI integrated hardware mpeg-decoding onto their cards and CPUs are now plenty fast enough to decode mpegs in software. but if you're willing to install an mpeg-decoder card that you really have no use for, a lot of them do include tv-out.

    maybe you have a seperate gfx card.

    look in te back where your monitor is pluged in, is there another s-video port or a rca video port?

    btw, whats your compaq model number?
