Re: S-video from laptop to TV..???
Right-mouse click anywhere on your computer's "wallpaper".
Click the Settings tab.
Now, you'll see two rectangles, representing your two screens, namely the internal LCD screen and the S-video output from your laptop.
Click on the 2nd rectangle.
Click "extend my desktop on this window".
Now, Windows will start to "paint" part of your wallpaper onto the S-Video port, and out to S-Video port on your TV.

Extremely blue color temperature that
cannot be adjusted; some false-contouring artifacts in dark scenes; no
picture-in-picture; limited connectivity with just one DVI and no HDMI
inputs. If use as a TV monitor: The number of colors you can display is controlled by the video card
installed in your computer. In order to display more than 16 colors,
the proper video card driver must be installed. Contact your computer
or video card manufacturer to obtain the latest driver from them. If you are watching standard-definition or Cable/RF signal on an HDTV,
the picture may appear to be of poor quality. This is because the TV is
designed for viewing HD or at least digital content. Your best bet would
be to upgrade to a Dish Network HD receiver and connect it to the TV
with an HDMI cable. Similarly inputting analog signal to TV from your
DVD player will not appear to be of great quality. A newer DVD player
would most likely have component video output which would look much
better. To get even greater quality, an upconverting DVD player
connected with an HDMI cable would look the best. You could also upgrade
to a Blu-ray disc player, which is capable of playing HD Blu-ray discs
as well as DVD's at higher resolution. A less expensive choice could
also be a streaming media box.
Hierarchy of inputs for good picture quality:
I see that you LG LCD HDTV is giving you a No Signal message on the Screen.
see steps Below on finding out what will show video on your LCD HDTV.
* First make sure that the HDMI cable is connected to your Laptop to the HDTV LG. * On your TV check your remote control and look for the input or Source Button, this will help you set your TV for the HDMI connection. * Once set, turn your Laptop on and see if the HDTV will provide Video from the Laptop to your HDTV using HDMI. * I believe that works right, now we have video still we need to set the Audio to work from you Laptop using HDMI to your HDTV. * On your Laptop lower right side look for your speaker icon, right click on the speaker icon then select Playback Devices. * Once you've selected Playback Devices you will see a window showing you a list of devices and the first one on the list will be you HDMI connection right click on it and select set as default device this will make your audio work on your HDMI to your TV. * Once audio to HDMI is set and you want to go back to your Laptop just set the speakers as the default device this will set your speakers have the Audio working again on the Laptop.
I hope that this will help you regarding your concern.

Your Dell Monitor does not have a video output. The DVI/HDMI cable needs to run from the DVI-Out of you computer tower directly to the TVs HDMI input, ideally one with a red/white analog audio input next to it, because that cable only provides a video signal. If you don't have a DVI out on your computer, perhaps your TV has a VGA input. If your computer/video card only has one monitor connector, then you can only connect the Monitor OR the TV.
There should be a button on your remote denoting "Input." If you connect the DVD player to the TV on "video input 1" then push the input button on the remote or TV itself until the DVD appears on your TV (which will be Video 1). Some TVs must have the component (in your case) the "DVD" player connected to the TV before the TV will recognize it. Make sure the DVD is powered up and then push the input button until the DVD player appears on the TV. Depending on your TV inputs, there may be multiple inputs like, Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI. The above are listed in the respective order of "quality." HDMI being the best. Whatever input you hook the DVD player up to on the TV will be the "input" you will look for when pressing the input button. Hope this helps.
after you hook the cable up to the tv, go into the tv's menu to make sure the input mode is set to s-video. then go into the control panel on your laptop and find the settings for your video card and set the output to "TV" or "Clone"
There is a PC/DTV RGB input area with two audio jack inputs. The input is a standard 15 pin PC jack. Hook it up to your PC video card input. You can get the audio cable from Best Buy or a electronics store...split RCA on one end and the headphone jacks on the other to your PC. Then select the TV/Video source button on your remote until you see PC/DTV YPbPr screen appear. It will search for the signal, find your PC and display the screen. You may have to go to MENUE on your remote to adjust the HDTV (1080i) frequency.... an option that only appears if there is something hooked up to the PC/DTV RGB signal input.
