Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4074 Notebook
I plugged the s video into my television to use as monitor but my tv says no signal. I tried restarting the laptop with the svideo plugged in and that did not work. I can find any specific instructions on how to do this (I thought the laptop would automatically send the signal like it does with the standard monitor plug.
Two things you can try:
1. You need to Activate your TV OUT feature in the Monitor setting of your display properties and select Clone so as to mirror what you see in your laptop's display in your TV. As you posted, the S cable must already be inserted before powering up your laptop; and/or
2. You may need to lower your laptops screen resolution. Most but not all TV units have lower resolution capacity than monitors. Perhaps try with the lowest possible setting (800X600) and when it shows on your TV, slowly increase till it blanks out again. pressing escape would revert you back to last setting that worked. Additionally you may need to lower likewise your laptop's Color Quality setting and/or the Screen Refresh rate.
Hope that this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

for the HD15 connection you need to set your TV to PC mode
the only thing I can think that you may be doing wrong is that you need to "ACTIVATE" the external outputs on the laptop,as they are not on by default.
To switch video output mode LCD / CRT (monitor/PC mode) /TV mode plus some dual modes LCD + CRT / LCD + TV
I have found that the overlays used for video playback do not work in the dual modes, (and I have found that CRT monitor mode is best for connecting to a large TV)
so switch your TV to PC input, connect your HD15 cable and SWITCH output mode on your laptop (usually Fn F5) press until you get an output,
you will also need to connect audio, so get a phono -> 3.5mm jack plug and plug that in also, and you are ready to rock and roll
