    In Black and White hey?? Sounds Like it could be a Pal/NTSC Issue...This is what happens when your TV out is Meant to be used for a Pal TV set but you are useing a NTSC TV Set or the Other way arround...You also Might try useing different resolutions but if the problem persists then it just might be a Pal/NTSC Issue....

    If you live in the UK, then your TV will be a PAL format, the European standard. It is likely that the TV out is NTSC, since this is the North American Standard. You need to buy a new video card with PAL output.
