LapTop to TV problems : (

Hi ,
I recently bought a Tevion Scart lead set from ALDI
It says on the box connect PC to TV. I connected the wires as it told me . But alas no picture!

It is a s-video outut on the laptop to scart adaptor in tv plus the audio also with a red and white adapter thingy . Im confident the cables are set up right.

I phoned up there helpline The guy was nice but he said something obscure about IBM laptops svideo outputs not working properly > Min laptop is Elonex
Can anyone help???

Thank you

On my laptop,I have to enable TV out in the bios.

Have a look in case yours has the same requirement.

im sorry i dont know what bios are?
also ive just been doing some research and I think I might need something like a scan converter????
because the TV isnt very modern. a lot more complicated than I had envisaged!

Right click an empty area on the desktop.
select properties
settings tab
advanced (displays tab)

can you see the TV setting?

You can usually enter bios by pressing delete, or F2 during startup.

It should be in the manual, especially how to output to TV

My neighbour just came round, who works with computers
he fiddled with it a bit got a picture in Black and white, and also it was strangley aligned, so I had to drag over vlc player to the far right of my lapt- screen .
He advised me to get a dvd player that plays div x instead .
nothing is ever simple!

Make sure the TV output seting is PAL and NOT NTSC.
