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??
