Re: connecting to tv with s cable

Some laptops have a "Fn" button (function) which basically acts like another alt key. On my dell laptop, it's blue, and all blue icons on the keys represent something that happens when I press the "Fn" button with that key. For instance there's a little picture of a monitor on the F5 key, and when I press Fn + F5 it automatically searches for a plugged in monitor (or TV). See if your laptop has a similar function. Maybe look in the manual?

The second solution I have for you, is (for windows xp) right click on desktop, go to properties, then go to the settings tab. See if there are two monitors, if there are choose the TV (probably the one that's not selected) and choose "use this as my default monitor" or "extend my windows desktop to this monitor" if you want to also use your laptop monitor at the same time.

If none of those worked, make sure your TV is set to the right input. (some newer TVs have 8 or more inputs, so try cycling through them all).

If all else fails, it could be that your s-video card needs drivers. If this is the case let me know and I'll see if I can help you out.

I have a compaq presario v3000 i remove the vista now xp is running on my laptop but drivers are not working after change the os.

The model "V3000" is a generic term for a bunch of different models. To make sure you get the right drivers for your specific model, start at HP's site here and pick yours from the list. Then pick the Windows XP operating system and you'll find the drivers they have for download.

I am using a Compaq Presario V3000 laptop - 2yrs old. Recently my laptop speed has been too slow. IE is not connecting to any website. However internet is connected i.e. Yahoo & Skype are working

Please run system restore to factory default but backup your documents first.

Try another browser like Opera or Firefox.
