That's a S-VIDEO OUTPUT port only - sorry you'll need a USB adapter to record video.

How to hook up Dell laptop to Samsung Dlp tv?


Your Dell D620 only has a VGA Port for output to a external monitor or tv. Your TV will need to have a VGA Port too, otherwise you will need some type of adapter that goes between the laptop and the tv to convert to the type of connection the tv has (svideo, hdmi, dvi, etc.)

One you have the two connections set up to communicate with each other, just select the input source on the tv (pc, computer, hdmi, etc) and then reboot the computer if the image is not show.

After rebooting if the image is not shown, then you will need to toggle the display by some keystrokes. Press and Hold the Fn function key at the lower left hand portion of the keyboard, then hit the F8 key which toggles the display to be either on the laptop only, tv only, both the laptop and tv.

When i plug in to s-video port on my toshiba m45-s169 laptop to my television it doesnt work.how do i enable the port?


Change the display settings on the laptop to 800x600 - right click on the desktop > properties > advanced tab You will need to select TV out to enable that function use the FN key and the F5 key together and each time you press it will toggle through an output, not necessarily in this order
❖ Built-in display panel only ❖ Built-in display panel and external monitor simultaneously ❖ External monitor only ❖ Built-in display panel and external video device simultaneously (This should be SVideo TV out) ❖ Other external video device only (This should be SVideo TV out)
Press the FN key and the F5 key 4 times
On the TV you will need to select the TV input for the S-Video connector - This may be by selecting an Input AV1, AV2, AV3 etc - without the make and model of the TV I cannot say which to select
Here are some instructions on how to use S-Video - it covers a number of laptops including Toshiba http://www.svideo.com/compaq1700.html
This is a link to the Toshiba support site for that laptop http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1130627&rpn=PSM43U&modelFilter=M45-S169&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663

How to display internet contex on tv


This is strange setup since you have no video output. Are you sure you don't have a VGA out as it would make it easier.,It can be done without the VGA though.

You will need a USB to s-video cable like this...

Then you need this video package to connect to the TV...

Trying to hook up a TV to my Dell inspiron 1420 PC using s-video to composite and there is no output on the TV. I borrowed an expensive converter which works perfectly so the computer IS set up properly...


that actually isnt a true svideo port. it does output video, but it needs a converter that dell sells for about 30 bucks (ebay is cheaper). it plugs directly into the "s-video" port on the computer and splits it off into both an svideo connection and an rca connection.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.
