S-video out isn't working

\015 When plugged into monitor doesn't show.\015\012\015\012My S-video out on my Toshiba laptop worked fine for months. Then occasionally, the image would flicker. Now the image and display do not show up at all unless I'm holding the s-video cord in the computer the right way. This leads me to believe the pins are loose on my actual graphics card. Is it possible to fix just the s-video output, or do I need to replace the entire graphics card?\015

Trying to hook up a TV to my Dell inspiron 1420 PC using s-video to composite and there is no output on the TV. I borrowed an expensive converter which works perfectly so the computer IS set up properly and the s-video port does work. When I change display settings with the function F8 button the screen flickers and I can see my desktop for a second and then its gone. I believe the display options also reset. Anybody have any ideas for TV or laptop settings I may have missed??


That actually isnt a true svideo port. it does output video, but it needs a converter that dell sells for about 30 bucks (ebay is cheaper). it plugs directly into the "s-video" port on the computer and splits it off into both an svideo connection and ... Dell PC Laptops
