Both my TV capture card and my video card have svideo jacks but my tv has a/v jacks. I bought a cable on Ebay that has an svideo plug on one end and a/v (red, white, yellow) plugs on the other for really cheap and it works fine. What I found harder to do was setting up my pc to see the tv as a second monitor... keep in mind that I'm a total novice lol
Good luck!

Yes it's possible but you need a tv card the s video on the computer is usaually to send the signal out on the computerand the tv must have a s video input side now if it does you should have a special display area that let's tou output nthe computer to the input of the tv and the tv input is set to s video then once you apply or ok the settings on the computer the computer should send either an extended desktop, a clone of the desktop or send the entire desktop to the tv leaving your monitor blank... only if your diplay setting has the option to send out to s video or output settings depends on video driver and card and i be surprise if that s video is a input card for vcr transferring if it does then you will need pinnacle software and the device sometimes have the s video connecttion for rca componet plugs

If your computer has an S-video jack, (and if your tv has one)then all you need is the cable. If not, you need some sort of pc to tv converter, which run a wide range of prices, depending on if your tv has s video or not.

Would appreciate any advice on connecting cable etc. to connect my Compter and TV to display video/film downloads.s


The easiest connection is converting to VGA and using a standard headphone port-to-audio in. Your video out from the laptop varies by model, which isn't included here.

It will most likely be mini-VGA or mini-DVI

THEN TURN YOUR COMPUTER ON AND SEE IF IT REQ THE CONNECTION IF THE LIGHTS ARE ON THE ROUTER MOST LIKELY COMPTER IS NOT CONNECTING TRY CONNECTING WITH ETHERNET CABLE

Have loaded software, connect s90 to compter using usb lead, Computer dings to say found new hardware but unable to connect with wizard and al;so zoom browser cannot detect camera


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Connection between emachines case and motherboard


Most likely the wires are for power, reset, and hard disk light. Touch one pair together momentarily, if your compter comes on then connect those wires to the power button. After the computer is on, connect the other two pair to the hard disk light one pair at a time until you see the light activate when the hard disk is running. Then connect the remaining pair to your reset button.

My kensington optical2.0 wireless mouse will not work on my toshiba sattelite 300 series vista home premium after downloading driver


please follow the follwing steps:

1. remove the device from the computer.

2.remove unkown devices from the compter. follow steps.
a) select the compter icon on the desktop and right click and select manage.
b) select device manager.
c) look for heading usb devices or unkown devices. if there are unkown devices in your compter that selection tree would be open. just select select the unkown devices and click delete. confirm the same.

3) post deleting all unkown devices, reboot your laptop.
now keep the driver disk handy which came along with the mouse or the driver you have downloaded., preferablly install the driver if its an executable file before connecting the device, other wise save the file to your desktop and ensure the driver is not in a zip or a rar archive, please extract the same.

4) connect the device, the compter would search the driver, failing to find the driver compter would ask for the options. select that you have the disk under advanced option. select the driver you have download and it would show you the device and please continue the installation with the same driver.

You are done... your device would work then.
