    Unless I missed something, it is apparently a bad monitor or the driver for the bad monitor. Has nothing to do with the graphics card. Dont you agree?

    Did you try to reset the monitor resolution? It could be that the shutdown caused the resolution to change.

    Let me understand something you said in your first post.

    You said it doesn't work with your TV but it does work with a computer monitor. Is that true?

    When you connect to a computer monitor, are you using the VGA port or DVI port?

    What about when you connect to the TV?

    If you're using different ports, one part of the video card could be damaged or possibly the connecting cable is damaged.

    The one thing when you say it works on a monitor... Is the resolution proper? As things will run just fine on monitors, but as your tv isnt "standard" if the gpu is messed it'll show it.

    You really need to get your setup listed.

    Yep, agreed , hook up a monitor, and get the specs from sites Rich and I have listed, to assist Patonb on helping you out.
