Actually you should be able to use S-Video. But with S-Video your digital display is converted to display of a Television(S-video
mode). So if you compare the quality of SVGA and SVDO the resolution is completely different and no other way to make the 2 the same(base on different format).What I use is a VGA cable connnect to my VGA Output for my LCD TV.I have very good output the same as my computer.
takecare.

I have a HP DV4 Pavilion 1287cl laptop and the screen has gone white. When I hook it up to an external monitor it works. Any ideas? A tech friend tested the inverter and said its fine.


I've come across this a few times and almost always with an HP. It was always the video card. I can't help too much more without seeing it. My best advice would be to take it to a repair shop.
hope this helps

Vertical lines have appeared on my hp pavilion zd8000 can u tell me how to fix it please?


Connect an external monitor to your laptop. If the problem appears only on the display of the laptop and not on the external monitor in the same time that means the video card is ok and the problem could be : the screen of the laptop or the invertor or the cable that attaches the screen to the mptherboard. If the problem appears on both screens, external and laptop, most probably the video card/motherboard is defective.
Have it checked/repaired by a professional.

HP Pavilion dv2000 black screen.


yep ...it seams that you mess with the grafic card ( vga driver ) ..probably on color register ..or some driver update ..and now it wont display image ...
either reinstall the pc ...and its probably the best ...or restore using cd .. cause if it was something wrong with your display ..it should work on the other monitor... it also might be a video card fail ...if after re-installation its the same ...its the video card..
if you are worried for the data on il ...just install windows without formating ...choose to install a new os in the old folder...

HP Pavilian external monitor color problem.


The easiest thing would be to check your cable for a bent or loose pin. Next put another external monitor on the laptop. The circuitry to provide video to the laptop screen and the external monitor are separate except that they share a video processor and video memory. There can be bad electronics involved.

Hp pavilion ze5500 display monitor still doesn't work


IT could be a motherboard problem with the function key that controls the switching of the video infomation between the LCD screen and the external video connector.
It could be the function key circuitry on the motherboard that controls the back lighting levels on the LCD.
