Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I don't know how to use the S-Video Port to connect to my tv

Buy and connect s-video cable to your tv and to your laptop
turn on laptop and turn on your tv
on tv select your s-video input
on your laptop go to display settings and there go to submenu for enabling the tv-out function
and suddenly - magic!
