S video is just video, you need to run two rca jacks to the left and right audio channel thet the s video is on. The only one that runs both audio and video is the HDMI, component is 5 wires, s is 3, as is the old shhool rca 2 audio 1 video, so if you want the best picture and sound use the HDMI, next step down is Component, 5 wires, 1red ,1blue, and one green, just for the video, then the right and left audio. Or an optical audio, but HDMI is what you want, one wire does it all

Cant get sound via HDMI HOOK UP TO SONY TV


Some HDMI don't carry sound signals and you have to hook up the headphone jack to the TV with a headphone to RCA adapter.Sometimes you can go to control panel on your computer and turn on the HDMI sound but sometimes not.

Hook a monitor to the video output, if picture is present it indicates a problem in the inverter board just below the LCD screen, [more commom] or the backlight behind the display is defective. Now! if both show the same symptom it is most likely the video graphics chip.

The screen on my dell 1545 keeps going black I have to hit it on the side for the picture to come back?


It sounds like your inverter is going bad. Hook your laptop up to an external monitor. If it works fine on the external then its time to get your inverter replaced. If it doesnt then you have issues with either your video card driver or your motherboard.

My ECS A530 laptop displays only green vertical lines. can someone please help?


Sounds like you have a bad LCD screen, hook up a computer monitor on the video output located on the back of your Laptop, if the monitor produces a nice clean picture, suspect the LCD screen on your Laptop.

I try and hook my toshiba pc to a tv or projector


Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.

For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.

If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.

For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer

If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. Remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that

NVIDIA graphics cards seem to work best in this area.

If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.

Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.

Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.

Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%

Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.

Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.

I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture

NO SOUND WHEN USING HDMI FROM PC TO HDTV (RUNNING VISTA)


When using an HDMI to DVI cable their is no audio that comes through that cable. Even if you use HDMI to HDMI most computers only have video output from HDMI. You will have to use a seperate audio cable for you to be able to get the sound to work. Depending on the output you have on your laptop you may have to resort to hooking up a pair of speakers to the headphone jack.

Hope this helps.

Pc to TV, NO color


I have hooked up my laptop to the TV using the S port. I haven't seen the best results yet.

Have you checked the display driver settings? Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced.

Here you have a bit more options on tweaking the video card.
