How do I use the s-video link from the acer aspire 5520 to my tv??? Thank you

To enable the s-vidoe on an Acer simply press these two keys at the same time on the keyboard: "FN" + "F3"

You may need to change the resolution on the output to the TV if it is too small or too big.

Change Resolution:
  1. Click "Start"
  2. Click "Control Panel"
  3. Double Click "Display"
  4. Click the "Settings" tab on the top
  5. You will see 2 displays in the box , and an "Identify" button on the bottom. Hit that button and see what number your TV shows , should be #2
  6. Click on the screen with number 2 on it then look near the bottom, there will be a section that says "Resolution"; slide it to the left to make it bigger and the right to make it smaller
