My Toshiba P305D S8836 won't connect to my TV

I've connected my PC to the TV using S-Video Cables. The only activity i get is a flicker on the screen when i attempt to make a connection. My buddy uses an older model Toshiba and he connects to TV with no problems. I'm not understanding what's going on with my PC.

    I haven't installed any new video drivers. I did decrease the notebook's screen resolution, and i've adjusted the control panel to connect to external display. I have not seen any recognition in my control panel regarding the type of TV that i've connected the PC to.

    Does your notebook have installed the latest video card drivers?

    Have you tried to decrease notebook's screen resolution to 640x480?

    Does your video card's control panel (or settings software )recognizes attached TV set?

Have you pressed the Fn button and the associated F key to transfer the signal to the S-Video output? If so you may need to configure the display setting for monitor 2 in the display setting in control panel as it will differ from the monitors settings.

Lost bios password on toshiba satellite P305D-S8836

Lost BIOS password?
If you can remember, it will be much better,
If not, try rebooting in safe mode as administrator(hold down F8).
Else you need to put a second disk in another PC and run some password reset utility likeWindows Password Recovery Basic.

If all these can't solve the problem, you have to reinstall the PC.

Change video output to s vedio connection

If the computer does not easily and automatically show the computer screen on the tv through the S-video output, make sure the tv is switched to S-Video and Hold down the Fn + F5 keys to toggle through the video output manually on the laptop. Just make sure that only one video source is connected at a time. Your laptop will not support two output sources at the same time. Below is the user manual in which it discusses the use of an external device on page 70.

Laptop to tv problem

This is pretty common if using S-video connections and quite often there is little that can be done apart from use high quality cables.

Even that is not always 100%

A better option if you can is to use component cables or DVI to HDMI which is the best way.

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. and I suspect that is what you have.
