Right click on an empty portion of your desktop, and go to "Properties" at the bottom.

Here you will find the display options for your computer. You will probably see that you have the option to set a new display, or add a display for use in conjunction with your current.

What you need to do is enable your second display "2", as the S-Video, so that the signal goes through to your TV, and then all should work just fine.

You may find that you need to change your resolution settings, as your tv has different dimensions and so on, but that is very easily fixed from within your display settings.

I hope that this has helped to fix your problem, good luck!

While playing your movie in your PC, change the screen resolution to lower, and then check your television. The error is in the playing format which your HDTV cannot play while receiving the video signal, which could be of very high resolution or also can be very lower. Try to adjust it, also check your media player properties, might be its conflicting, or some setting should needed to set-up.Check thoroughly for best results.

Television does not show image. when i turn on the tv, cable and bose i only get the banner across the bottom of the tv showing the channel and the show playing, but no video or show comes on. just black...


If you get the banner, I'd say you have a working TV. You don't say if you have a VCR or DVD hooked up. If you do see if a movie will play alright. It must be the cable.

Set the TV to look for a signal on the same input your are hooking your dvd player to. Example, if your dvd is hooked to video 1, set the TV to show video 1 on the screen.

Movie Files will not display on the TV.


Its quite possible your laptop has lost its association with your TV as a "secondy monitor".

To check this, minimise everything and right click on the desktop and go to Properties. Then navigate to the settings tab. This will show you how many displays it considers itself to have.

Click on number 2 (if visable) and click on extend my windows desktop to this monitor.

You should now be able to go between screens

DVD movies do not play


A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.
