No color on tv when using nvidia 7300 GT via composite video

I have an AGP nVidia GeForce 7300GT card installed on an Dell Optiplex GX270.  The television does not have a s-video input.  It does have a composite input.  What the previous technician has done was to take an rg6 cable and use a converter to composite on both ends.  The television used to have color on the old card.  I believe it was an ATI.  Now, the LCD shows color but the television will only see black and white.  The s-video out on the card came with a converter with RGB connections.  Only the green sends a signal to the tv.  Anyone know how to get this television to display full color?  I've tried every setting on both the TV and the nVidia control panel I have seen.

I had the same problem with the card i have replaced it with warrenty better try the same. It is not the system fault it is the card fault. Also try connecting s-video to TV S-video which has better picture and clarity than Composite video..

That type of connector was on the OLD video card.  The new one is S-Video out.  That threw me as well. I'd not seen that type of connector before.  And, yes, it does have the white, yellow cable.  That one does not (obviously) fit the new card.  He only has AGP.  What is the connection name so that I may order the correct card?
