Default Hooking a computer up to a TV

OK, I just had a computer built. I am trying to hook my computer up to my LCD T.V. My video card is the Nvidia 6800 GT. I am using a DVI connector to connect the computer to the T.V. I am getting absolutely no picture with the DVI connector, or an S-Video cable. What could be the problems?

I havn't used a Nvidia on a T.v. yet but my best guess is that you have to activate it in the control panel... ex. Control panel->Display-> Settings *here somewhere should be an advanced button and some things you can change... just look around for a way to activate T.V. support... i had the same issue for a while with an ATI i looked around a while and found stupily enough that i forgot to activate it. meanwhile cursing up a storm.
