There must be a setting somewhere in your video card's configuration. Describe your setup, especially the video card, in a little more detail.

This is a stupid question, but are you sure this is a color tv?

If you're using an SVideo to Composite adapter, this is often the end result.

That is interesting, any idea why?

That may help you understand. Basically, a cheap s-video to composite adapter just combines all the signals and all the grounds. It can give a less-then-desirable output.

cool, did not know that and I was going to hook my computer up to my TV, now I am glad I didn't start moving furniture to make that happen, will wait till I get a TV with s-video input.
