    Hi All

    I have a few friends coming around to my house soon and I want to show them a presentation I have prepared. I have a Dell Latitude which has an s-Video spcket on the left hand side together with a supplied connector. Should I be able to simply take the Dell s-video socket to this connector (which has s-video, Composite Video, and Digital Audio sockets), then from the Composite Video straight to the yello video socket on my TV...?

    Is that the way s-video works...? Should I have to re-boot to see anything on the TV..?

    Thanks...

    yes. after you connect the cable right-click on the desktop and choose properties. click on settings and enable the second monitor. You may have to reboot, but windows will prompt you if a reboot is needed.
