You still havnt given any extra info.
your pc has s-video your tv has s-video..
you link it up to view pc data on tv via fn +f4....(or whichever f key with square icon on it)
as soon as you link up nothing is seen on tv press fn key and f4 key together and you can see image on tv and pc press again image only on tv press again image only on pc again....
to watch continuous go to control panel click display,select screen saver and click powe and disable or reconfig sleep mode,hibernate.
eg..turn of monitor=never...turn off disks=never...system standby=never....change minute countdown in screensaver.
eg wait =5min change field to 2000min...
to view screen size on tv you use tv config 4.3,16.9,cinema,widescreen etc...

Why can't I get any video when I connect the S-video output from ny laptop to the S-video input jack on my TV?


Not only must you connect the two physically with the S-video cable, but also divert the laptop screen display to the TV or replicate the laptop screen display on the TV screen.

On Toshiba laptops, you use the Fn-F5 key combination to play with the display. Look at the screen capture from my Toshiba laptop. While pressing simultaneously on the Fn and F5 keys, use the right arrow to cycle through the various schemes. For your case use the 4th or 5th scheme.

Connect to tv


On the back of the laptop there will be a small round connector. This is s-video out. To connect the picture to your tv you just need a s-video cable. Most tv's now have s-video inputs. Just plug into the laptop and the tv , then turn the tv input to s-video (if needed) and you should be seeing your laptop display. To get sound to the tv you need to buy a few more parts to get the sound out of your headphone jack and then put it into the rca sound in jacks on the tv.

We use this setup to watch videos and such at home it works pretty good.

How can I connect my pc to tv


The DV6000 has all the drivers needed to connect to a TV as long as the TV has either a s-video connection or a pc vga input. The vga input is usually blue in color on the tv but on the laptop it may appear dark tan or brown and does not have screws to hold it into place, the plug just fits in and tension holds it in place. Once you connect the cables, change the input on the TV to the type of cable you are using. The laptop should automatically pick up the signal from the device and load the driver for it. The desktop should appear on the tv if the output signal and input are matched. The icons may appear different on the TV if the resolution is not close to a match but that should not be a concern unless it is cutting some of the picture off, in that case all you have to do is change the resolution to one that is easier for the tv to show. The dv6000 allows you to toggle through the video output settings by holding down the Fn key and tapping the F4 key, this will change the display to both laptop lcd and tv, just tv, just laptop lcd etc. It will even let you extend the desktop from the laptop to the tv or from the tv to the laptop, making one long display side to side.

I think my compaq presario f730US notebook pc has a built in micophone but i'm not sure does it?


Compaq presario f730US notebook doesn't have an inbuilt microphone. It employs a connector (port - 3.5mm jack) to connect an external microphone.

How do i connect my t.v to a computer if


Get an adapter to convert the s-video to whatever input you have TV. If your TV has RCA inputs, get an s-video to RCA adapter. If your TV only has RF inputs, you will need to buy an RF modulator, available for cheap from stores like RadioShack.

Laptop to tv


Hi you don't have enough info to give a complete answer but maybe I can help. The modulator converts the video (and/or audio) output of a DVD player (or camcorder or video game or PC) into a channel 3/4 signal that is compatible with a TV's cable or antenna input. It makes it so the standard audio/video outputs and the cable input (even passed through a VCR) work simultaneously. So... The "S-Video to RCA" convertor plugs into the "Video In" on the modulator; this allows you to take your S-Video Signal OR your Composite Video to an "RF Coaxial Antenna" input signal. You should have 3 pcs. the S-video to 3-RCA cable and the coax cable and the modulator. Here is a link to a pic that should help http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/videoware_1965_3477147
