Ah, the desktop and the laptop... completely different in so many ways. First of all, if we are talking about a TNT2 graphics card, the output is VGA. If you are connecting to a TV with an S-Cable, you are connecting to a TV with an output port other than Video. I know that on laptops S-cables are almost always S-Video, but on desktops, this is less common. There really isn't a VGA to S-Video cable I can think of, and so you will need to try something a bit different.  What inputs are available on the tv you are trying to attach to? I can tell you that there are competent adapters for VGA to Component, VGA to HDMi, VGA to DVI (though this is more of a MAC thing) and AVP (completely a mac thing). I have not, however, found a direct way to VGA - Yellow display (AV) without more than 2 devices between.
Let me know your inputs, and I'll give you my best (the best) possible solution... it matters little if this is a MAC or PC, but let me know that too if you will.

If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.

Computer TV output (RCA) - no colour

I had the same problem and nothing worked for me until I changed laptop settings to NTSC_M
So, briefly what I have: S-Video to S-Video cable, laptop (Thinkpad R51, Windows XP, with Intel(R) extreme graphics controler ) and TV set (Samsung, quite old one). The problem was that after connecting my laptop S-Video (4 pin) with S-Video (4 pin) of my TV, I had black and white (no colour) picture.
Solution is the folowing:
- connect your laptop and TV (both S-video 4 pins)
- mouse right click on your laptop desktop screen
- in the popup menu select: 'Graphics Properties'
- "Output to"
- select "TV"
- properties "NTSC_M"

keep in mind that if your are not connected to TV, Graphics Properties don't show TV as an option. So, that was very confusing for me, as I saw similar solution somewhere but was not able to find NTSC_M settings on my laptop
Good luck
