S-Video port on my Compac Presario V5000 Laptop

Hello.
The S-Video port on my Compac Presario V5000 Laptop seems to have a problem. When I plug the s-video - to - audio/video cord into my s-video port, to plug into my TV, to watch video on the TV, (as a 2nd monitor) the screen is constantly rolling up and down quite fast. I tried new audio/video cords and a new s-video - to - audio/video cord. No change. It must be the s-video port itself. Has anyone had a similar problem, and if so what did you do to correct it? As you can imagine this is quite a pain.
Thank you all.

Hello I have some movies on my laptop but now I want to wach them on tv on my TV I have only scart-input,experts told me I need a cable with D15 connecting from my laptop to one transformer to my...


Most Laptops use S-Video as a way to display video on your TV screen.
You can pick up a S-Video cable at your local Electronics store IE Radio Shack. Before purchasing the cable ensure your TV has the correct input.

The four main types are (in increasing quality):
1. S-Video [2 types: 4Pin as in picture'7Pin]
Port: http://www.coloredhome.com/video/s-video...
Cord: http://akamaipix.crutchfield.com/graphic...
2. VGA
Port: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/co...
Cord: http://www.thisishowyoudoit.com/blogimag...
3. DVI
Port: http://vocaro.com/trevor/blog/wp-content...
Cord: http://www.tech-faq.com/dvi-hdtv-connect...
4. HDMI - also transfer sound signal
Port: http://media.bestofmicro.com/,2-3-49323-...
Cord: http://www.k1cable.com/images/hdmi_000.j...

All of these do the same thing: The laptop sends the video information through the Port and the Cord. Your TV Recieves that information in its port. Numbers 1 to 3 do not transfer sound, so you will need a separate adapter for your headphone to TV Audio. #4 HDMI transfers both sound and audio data, so you won't need a separate cable for sound.
Check if your TV has corresponding ports. If not, you can buy adapters. This is an example of a VGA to RCA(Red/White/Yellow analog cables) and S-Video

I have presario v5000 laptop drivers in audio,video drivers


You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the driver for your Windows operating system.

Ethernet port


Try reloading the ethernet drivers from the device manager. Uninstall the drivers then reboot. It will find the hardware and reinstall the drivers. Then update the drivers from HP's support site. If you still have the issues, then it may be a faulty port. Take it in and have it checked out.

Need Help Using the Presario V2000 Expansion 2 Port


you can get s-video to scart connections;and if youve no scart you can connect s-video to phono....thats ur red,yellow n white audio / video plugs.yellow=video...white/red=left/right audio.
if you download a service manual it shows the pinout for s-video connections making it able to connect phono's.you only need the yellow and either red or white cos pc only outputs mono to tv.
there are also wireless systems you can get though never tried them.
you could also connect to another monitor,just plug the monitor into the back of pc(ext)only go into on place one way so no prob there.if no picture on ext monitor u need to switch screens
(alt+f 4)usually.press together once switches to ext mon,press together again enables both screens,and again returns to pc.
