Windows 7: tv+dvi input, Unable to play games when connected to tv

windows 7 32 bit
tv+dvi input, Unable to play games when connected to tv

Ok i just completed my custom build and everything works fine. i hook up my computer to my tv and when i go to load any videogame i get a message that says unable to initilize directx or direct 3d, something to that effect. Im assuming this has something to do with the computer being connected to my tv, considering it works on my cpu monitor. i dont even know where to begin to trouble shoot. Im running windows 7 connected to tv directly with a dvi cable. Like i said i was able to play on my monitor before so i know my drivers are correct. i reinstalled direct x again just incase. Anyone have any ideas?
