You may need to tell the laptop to output the signal to the lead instead of / or as well as, the laptop screen.

This is usually a simple keypress or keypress combination of the laptop keys.

Thanks john, do you have any idea what the keypress maybe for an toshiba satellite pro or know where i might find out. thanks again

Fn + F5 seems to be one option.

Some Scart leads are one way only rather than two way or might have a switch for input/output.

Are there other AV channels on the TV that you could try?

I just seem to have EXT 1, EXT 2, SVHS2 and EXT3. I get a strange buzzing noise on EXT 1 but nothing on any of the others.
