I have a GeForce 3 Ti500 video card with latest drivers
from nVidia's website (April 1, 2004). I am able to run
Windows on my TV (with an S-video connection) in safe
mode, but am unable to utilize my television and my
primary monitor simultaneously. Whenever I try to add my
television as a second monitor, windows does not recognize
it and it does not show up in the device manager or the
display panel.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Connect TV to PC. Turn TV on. Reboot PC. XP should now find it.

My TV has been connected to my PC. XP does not find it.
When I disconnect my CRT monitor and try using only my TV
and attempt a normal boot, the video is completely black
right after Windows loads. I hear the Windows start
chimes, but my desktop is not visible.

My Geforce 2 MX didn't have a problem doing it, so I think
its just a driver issue with XP or one of the other
components in my system... but I can't figure out for the
life of me what it is.

Did you update the drivers from www.nvidia.com?
