FX 5200 Washed Out Colors?

I used to have this problem a bit in my card's early days where using the S-Video out would result in some washed out colors. I'm converting it to composite video, but I've been able to resolve this problem before and have nice color. The problem is I have no idea what I did.

The problem cropped up again once I finally bought another monitor for my room and started using it. I also upgraded to the latest Forceware nVidia drivers, so that might have something to do with it as well. Anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this? There's a possibility that the converter is to blame, but I can't really find out without buying an S-Video to Composite cable that's guaranteed to work (I don't have a TV with S-Video inputs available). All I can tell you is that this has happened before, and has been fixed as well. The problem seems to be software related, but I can't nail it down.

    Every display is different, so you can't expect the colors to look the same after you get a new one. Every time I get a new monitor or television, the first thing I do is dial in the color settings. If those aren't robust enough to give you the results you want, use the color adjustments in Nvidia's video drivers.

    Sorry about that, I wasn't exactly clear. What I meant is that I had been using the computer in this room with only the TV for a while and I had recently purchased a monitor to use it as a standard desktop as well. The TV is still the same display so there shouldn't be this huge discrepancy in quality, that's what I'm trying to solve.

    Hm, maybe I should revise my question...

    Does anyone know a good place to get nVidia support like this? Their official forums don't seem like they'd be of much help.
