S-video output not working

\015 I'm trying to connect to my TV using the s-video output on the aspire 1690 but its not working, pressing + should switch the screen to the TV shouldn't it? Tried different cables, nothing seems to be helping, my PS2 connects to the same TV no problem. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

I think your problem is because the monitor is not activated. Right click desktop, click properties, click settings. Drag the gray scaled monitor on top of the black monitor and click ok and it should send the signal to the external monitor. try draging the mouse over to it because by default the external screen will be black.

No that will NOT work, first the PC's VGA doesn't have any "Channel" Second you must install Drivers for said VGA card, and the card MUST have a TV out connector either SVHS, or Composite, video out, or as of late HDMI. You Cannot "Receive" a VGA, si ... Toshiba Satellite L300-EZ1004V Notebook
