CRT display issues using svideo (driver issue?)
I have a pc hooked up to my old CRT TV (I know, should get a flatscreen, but the CRT works for us). This weekend I reinstalled Windows 7, and now I can't get a picture on the TV. I connect to the TV using the SVideo port on a Radeon 4670 video card. Before the reinstall the picture showed up on the TV fine.
I get a perfectly fine image when the PC is booting up, all the way through the flying dots windows logo. At that point, the screen goes black. When I connect up a different monitor, everything works fine. To my limited knowledge, it sounds like a driver issue. Windows defaulted to the Generic non-Pnp monitor. I've tried switching to Generic TV, but to no avail.
Here's the weird part: the display works fine when I boot into safemode (but not in low-resolution mode). Since its a CRT, the resolution in safemode is fine. Is there some way I could force Windows to use the safemode driver in regular mode? I think that would take care of the issue.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Whats the make and model? go to the website and find your display driver.
Trust me, you do not want to rely on windows default display driver.
You can also try this since its a radeon card.
Update graphics drivers:
AMD :AMD Driver Autodetect
^ if you do run this, and you are installing the drivers, don't worry about screen flickering and pixels going nuts its normal.
