I just got a new laptop with windows XP and cannot figure out how to display the desktop on my TV. I got an S-video cord and connected them and went to settings/display/advanced and tried to click on TV but it says not connected, so I restarted and it still didnt work. How do I get this to work?

its hard to say without more information.

you may just need new drivers.

some laptops and video cards, have to have the tv hooked up to the laptop as it powers up so it will detect it.

some laptops you actually have to turn on mirroring or choose the output in the bios.

most newer laptops however have a special key, usually a secondary or 3rd based key. (you have to hold FN or some other key to hit them)....you know what i'm talking about the stuff written in a different color above the keys. This key changes from normal display to mirroring. my key says LCD/TV.

all laptops are different. maybe give the book a quick scan. or give post the model # of laptop and type of video card and i will look for more information.
