Default TV-OUT interference

I have a tad of a problem. I recently bought a ATi XTasy 9200 256mb pci video card. I just wanted to be able to hook it up to my tv and surf/ play games and just watch movies. Now when i hook it up to my tv through the video-s line i get major interference. Its just wavy lines and flickering running across the top of the tv. i tried everything. then i noticed that if the comp is off and i unplug it from the wallsocket the interfernce will go away, but even with the comp off, as soon as i plug it into the wall , the interference will come back, EVEN WITH THE COMP OFF!!. any input would be great. thanks

is it a normal TV, or HDTV?

if its a normal TV, u can only use 800x600 or lower resolution. and u can't go higher then 60hertz... might even need to be lower then 60, im not shur.

a normal TV only has 380x420 pixels, or somthing like that... so it will definatly not display 1024x768 properly.

HDTV is different, there more like comp monitor's.. thats all i know of them.
