S-Video Out Not Working?

I have connected to a TV with a S-Video cable through the s-video out jack on my laptop. I have tried the usual key combinations to switch between views, as well as adjusting settings. For some reason no matter what I do, i cannot display onto the tv either as an extended monitor or as a clone.

    yes, i have looked into the properties and ever reinstalled drivers for the graphics card. I have also tried multiple tv's as well and tried a s-video to rca video conversion cable as well. None of these have changed anything or effected it. Im at the point now where i believe the graphics card maybe faulty due to this and numerous failing attempts to fix the problem of the sound and video not lineing up when videos are played on the laptop.

Some graphics cards have trouble with certain tv's refresh rate normally 50HZ ones and s- video more so than any other, if you have a vga or dvi connector on your tv i would use that preferably to s-video. I assume you have looked in the graphics card properties and not just on the desktop settings to identify your other screen, as there is not a lot more that can be done.

How to connect dish tv to my laptop? It has inbuilt tv tuner.


Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV separately.

Things You'll Need

HDMI cable

USB-to-HDMI adapter

OR

S-video cable

Audio cables

HDMI Connection

Turn on your Lenovo laptop and HDMI-enabled TV.

Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has these ports. If you have a ThinkPad or other Lenovo model, connect a USB-to-HDMI adapter to your HDMI cable, then plug the USB end of the adapter into any USB port.

Press the "FN" and "F7" keys on your keyboard. This will switch the laptop's display to the TV. You can then use your TV screen as a monitor or use the laptop's DVD drive to watch movies on your TV.

S-Video Connection

Turn off your laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV on the other.

Plug audio cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of the audio cables into your TV.

Turn on the laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop screen, then select "Properties."

Click the "Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option, depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option in any version.

Click on the option that suits your system, such as "TV" or "LCD." Click "Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click "OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to the external screen.

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

*Yes you can: If your TV has either an S-Video input, or a VGA Input.

If it does not, then you wouldn't be able to without an S-Video-to-Component Converter. (very cheap though, if you buy one, you would use the same procedure For S-video below.

But if it does,

  • FOR S-Video Output: You would have to go into your control panel for your integrated graphics card, or graphics settings, and find where it enables you to use S-Video Output.
  • Then you would have to set the source of your TV to "S-Video" of course you also need an S-video cable to connect your TV to the input on the back of your computer, and an audio cable with a standard Stereo (3.5mm) headphone tip on one end, and standard Left/Right audio component tips on the other end. You'd Connect the stereo end of the cord into your headphone jack on the computer, and the other end with Left/right ends (usually white/red, or black/red) in to the input on the TV. (the audio input on the TV should be directly associated with, or by the s-video input jack).
  • FOR VGA Output: You would need to connect a VGA Cable to your computer, and to the VGA Input on the TV. For VGA
  • "To enable VGA out most laptops will have a keystroke such as Function-Key+F8 "Fn + F8" to enable the second display.. Look for a key that says "CRT/LCD" (the link is to an image of the key.)
  • So, [Fn + CRT/LCD]

    Most popular:
    Fn + F8
    Fn + F7
    Fn + F4
I Hope This Helps.

Give a shout back if you have any more questions, and I'll be Glad to assist you further.

Having trouble connecting laptop to TV


In general, all you need is an S-Video cable. That will connect to the S-Video output jack on most laptops and connect to the RCA jacks on the TV. These usually run about $10-$15 and are available from many online sources.
If your TV has a VGA input, you can get a male to male VGA cable and connect that way, then switch to the external display mode on the laptop.

I recently purchased an xbox, but because of the cable box, i dont know to to get video


Your cable box and TV should have RCA input jacks (Red, White, and Yellow) Red & White are for Audio and Yellow is for video feed...

HD Receivers & HD TV's are just slightly more upgraded with better video feed connections.
HD video can use three color coded RCA jacks for the video feed or a HDMI cable; if you can use the HDMI connection on your TV I recommend using that because it's less confusing to plugin the input cables. Try turning your TV to it's side to see what inputs you have available to connect your device to.

After you have it pugged your device into the input jacks press the "Input" key on your TV remote and power up the device.
Most TV's have more than one input, so you may have to cycle through the TV inputs by press the input key again until the video feed is displayed.
(If you don't have a "input" button on the TV or remote control you can try entering channel "00")
