Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

S-video to TV disappears. I use a Dell Inspiron 6400 with ATI Radeon X1400 video card which belongs to my church. I use it primarily for Power Point and video for Childrens Church. I wasn't getting S-video to the TV monitor so I updated the video card driver through Windows, cloned the laptop to the TV and got a good S-video signal to the TV: for about 10 minutes and then the signal disappeared and the video card settings reverted back to being a single monitor. Is my video card going bad? Is

I have had this issue before, when trying to get an image to project on our church projector.
\015\012I was able to resolve the issue by changing the resolution of my desktop. For some reason some projectors will not accept certain resolutions through the S-Video.
\015\012 I had to change them to several setting before I actually had one that looked acceptable. I think that uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers would have been the first thing that I would have tried as well.
But your best bet is to get the projector to see a lower resolution and then increase it as high as it will allow you to go.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR. I thought I could connect the laptop's VGA to the RGB port on the VCR, tune to the right channel, adjust the display on the laptop & poof --- big screen monitor. Well, no such luck. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, it go directly to the TV, I would need to convert the PC's VGA to coaxial. I thought it would be easier going through the VCR's RGB.
