Are you using the VGA input on the TV?

Have you tried using the TV's auto config?

After installing the drivers, (downloaded via AMDs site and not the drivers supplied by Windows Update) prior to restarting it may be worth using Catalyst Control Center and making sure you manually enter your TVs resolution and refresh rate.

(you may need to create a custom resolution.)

Since the x1650 is an old card, it's no longer supported by newer releases. You will need to download the legacy package:

ATI Catalyst (it says Vista, but will work with 7)

Option 1 - Full Software Suite (which will contain the Catalyst Control Center)

In CCC, you should be looking for "Desktop Properties"


This option is only available in the "Advanced view" - I don't use CCC any more, so unfortunately I can't tell you exactly where the desktop properties are. I believe it's found under "Desktops and Displays" and the desktop properties can be configured by clicking on the trinagle which is a drop down menu)

In the desktop properties section you should be able to select both your resolution and refresh rate.
