Recently my notebook crashed and i had to uninstall and reinstall all programs and now when i use this cable all i get is the desktop image on my tv and nothing more. no audio, my icons don't show up and my display image doesn't change even when my windows does. what could be the problem and how can i solve it? i have updated all software and hardware including the video adapter and nothing seems to work!! please help!! thanks in advance.
It could be a the video driver settings. There is two setting for showing video from the laptop. If you go to the display properties page. Check and see if it is set up with the clone desktop setting or extend my desktop. It sounds like it is the extend my desktop setting. You want the clone desktop setting

Utilize the MiFine AV. This is a great product I have used many times located here or anywhere you can find it. I have only used this brand as many other reviews have stated they have problems with the cheap ones from China.

I purchased one for about $30 USD and you can use if for any device that has RCA cables such as a video recorder, VHS player, Wii, etc
Can't display where on another monitor or tv? Did you reboot the computer after plugging in the VGA Cable. Sometimes you have to hit the FN Function Key + F1 thru F12 to get the image to display. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and hold the FN function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 Key.
For making the physical connection between PC and TV first we need video cable. PC has S-Video port that should be connect to the S-Video input of your TV using S-Video cable. Connect the computer to the TV using VGA ports or via the DVI to HDMI cable. These Macs need Adapter for a VGA cable. RCA for audio, connect RCA to your PC and red and white colored sockets of RCA cable to TV (left audio-white, right audio-red). In your PC open the Display Settings and activate output to the TV screen. In your TV open the menu from that open the External inputs. And change the video to HDMI depends on the connection. You can also change the screen resolution of your TV using the Personalize and Display Settings options in your Control Panel on PC.
After giving the connections you can watch the movies and everything is running on laptop on TV.
what TV model you have? maybe it is not on the right connection / setting
The PC must have the dual monitor mode in order to work as well what PC model you have .. specifically the video card /.... ensure that the video settings are set to TV mode as well for the default monitor
The most common problem is that the tv dont understand the s-video signal. You can try to change the signal input on the tv to s-video, but it will only work if your tv support's it. I have a s-video to scart but I dont get any collours because my tv can't understand the signal. My solution tip for you are: Get a tv that you are shure can understand the s-video signal.
i hope that is a USB driver issue when u plug your device does your computer detect any usb device and then its says unknown/unrecoginzed device. You have to check the cables first then you download USB2.0 driver install it inyour computer andl aslo try to connect the device in another port also put the the driver cd for the TV/projector
I believe you have the right adapter cable. According to my knowledge the Radeon 9000 supports TV output via RCA (check http://ati.amd.com/products/MobilityRadeon9000/index.html:" Mobility™ Radeon™ 9000 provides the highest
quality output support for DVI-I, TV and CRTs.")
Firstly, it would be a good idea to make sure your TV has the 3 RCA jacks into which you will insert the adapter cable's 3 RCA connectors according to the colors of the connectors and jacks.
Secondly, if your laptop has a VGA port, you're set to connect your laptop to your TV, no hustles. If your laptop doesn't have a VGA port, your going to have to get a DVI-VGA converter, so you're setup will be something like: [laptop]-[DVI-VGA converter]-[VGA-3RCA adapter cable]-[TV's 3RCA jacks].
When you get your laptop's screen displaying on your TV, its merely a matter of using your recording equipment to record the TV's image as you would any program showing on the TV.
