I recently bought a laptop with Win XP and the sis 630/730 chipset (with TV-output). I have several problems with it. When I go in to properties for the monitor, click 'advanced' etc, and choose the SIS-menu, and almost every menu there is grey-marked, i.e not choosable!! Why? When I connect the computer to the TV the picture is black & white! I have another computer with a Voodoo 3500-card, and when I connect it to the TV the color is there? But why not on the laptop?? I have chosen PAL-mode in the BIOS, but it doesnt help.
One last problem: I cant play Max Payne, since there is a 'mouse-lag'. I have read that disabling Vertical Sync in Direct X should help, but where do I do that? There is no menu to be found anywhere! It normally is under the properties for the monitor, but there is nothing! Anyone out there who can help me???
