    So I built a quick computer out of spare parts to simply hook to a TV with S-Video and use it with the TV as a monitor. So I boot it up hooked to the TV wait a bit until I know it's in Windows then hit the hot keys to switch to the TV view...nothing happens. So I went and grabbed a monitor and plugged that in and a box was on the screen saying I had to have a monitor connected still in order to switch it to the TV view. Is there a way around this? I mean the computer is only for use with the TV so I don't have an extra monitor to keep hooked to it. Thanks.

    do it online and you may be able to fix the problem. If that doesn't help I may research the problem further.
