This is what you need to do:
Connect the s-video from your computer to your tv input. (think you've already done that)
Go to display properties on your laptop (right-click Desktop and select Properties)
Go to Settings
rightclick the blue rectangle, with a number 2 in it and select attach
If needed you can change the resolution for the TV.
Then click OK
Now your computer is configured correctly.
Make sure you have selected the correct input on your TV.

Please post some feedback,
Thanks for using FixYa

Hard Drive Issue.
Error Code Biohd3 issues can arise from a variety of computer errors usually originating from corrupt or missing registry files.

Other contributing factors could be ActiveX errors or malicious software such as malware and spyware.

These types of problems are the consequence of not properly maintaining your system.
If left unchecked these problems can result in critical system errors, freezes, and even a total system failure.


BIOHD-3 means the diagnostic program has encountered errors with the hard drive attached to port 3.

If you can get your PC to boot up then do so and get your data backup to external media if you already haven't done so.

My presario 500 wont even turn on


try running it in safemode and if you have recently added any new hardware or software that may be causing your problem uninstall it while you are in safemode.

As the computer boots press F8 to enter safe mode. If this is successful then everything on the screen will look big, ignore that for now. uninstall anything that may be causing the problem. If you have not loaded anything lately, then while in safe mode restore your computer to an earlier date when you know that everything was working okay.

You can do this by going to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Then choose a date when you know that things were okay and press restore. You computer will restore to the date you selected and it will reboot. If asked to whether you want to start windows normally after the boot then select that option.

I hope this helps
