    Ive hooked up a 4 pronged s video cable to my TV but for some reason its comming up black and white on the TV. Ive done this before wit ha laptop and a different TV so im not able to see why this would be any different with my desktop.

    The desktop has a 6 slot s video cable in the back and im using a 4 pronged, could that be it? my video card is a GeForce 7800 GTX. Anything i can do to get the signal colorized?

    I that it might be just that you setting for you graphic card is sending the tv out signal in the wrong type. If your in North America you'll want NTSC or if your in Europe PAL.
