    What kind of vga> scart adapter did you buy?
    It might have a maximum resolution, ie try lowering your resolution. Also, the fact that the scart to vga cable is using a female connector makes me wonder if it isn't meant to convert the other way around, ie scart signal on a monitor instead of PC signal on a TV.

    i assume you want to use tv out of your card and feed it into scart plug of your tv.

    the tv out cables from the card should be able to get you the video output into a yellow cinch plug. there are adapters like: [​IMG] or the same with some cables which you can use.

    yellow = video signal
    red and white = audio signal left and right, grab those from the line out of your sound card with a 3.5 mm to dual cinch cable
