    Hello,

    I have a new mini ITX system up and running that has a MP problem.

    The TV picture is displayed in green and pink (mostly) and looks really bad.

    I have attached a picture of what I mean.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Logs attached.

    I believe the image is a negative of what it should be, hope this helps.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    You can try updating the driver to latest, but as the problem has been around a long time chances are it will be the same.

    Sorry not a good GPU.

    Thanks Ray,

    As always a voice of reason.

    Latest drivers (took some searching) and now I have pink people with white shirts.

    Seems things in the Mini ITX market may be getting better!

    Thanks,
    Chirs
