Answers :

Ok, make sure that you are on the right chanel on your TV, might mean flicking through the AV channels just to make sure you are not on the wrong one.
Also try going into your 'control panel' Start>control panel Then click display
Have a good look through the various tabs, if you see anything that says enable S video, or anything likie that clcik the tick box
hopefully this should sort the problem
On some laptops there is usually a button (or combination of buttons) that enable S video output, It may be near the f1 f2 f3 f4 etc.. keys, maybe it has a picture of a tv or something on it
