Are you sure your scart on tv supports S-video. Not all scart inputs do and if they do it is sometimes AV2or AV3.Also are you sure you got the conector with S-video going into the scart not out or if you got the switchable one have you got the switch in the correct position

thank u for reply but how do I check -
1) whether scart on TV is supported or not as i donnot have any information I bought from somebody. TV is AIwA TV - SE - 2130K

2) that wat I bought is the connector with S video into scart not out or whether it is switchable ?

Kindly help...

Only by checking the tv's manual you may be able to download from samsung. You could try another scart input as I said all tv's dont support does it not have a dedicated S-video input?. The connector you bought always confusing I had the same prob you nees to check if poss with maplin you have the one you need

i checked with maplin but they denied any knowledge. Also my TV doesn't have S video input.

Any idea about change of display settings as when I checked on display settings under Advanced tab i couldn't change setting from laptop screen to TV screen....???

Afraid cant help much on the laptop side 7 but I would guess (maybe wrong ) that if the tv dont have anS-video socket its unlikely to have a scart enabled S-video. Lets hope someone else might be of help good luck

May sound silly, but are you sure the S-Video on the laptop is S-Video Out, not S-Video In?

Once the laptop os connected to the TV, instead of going to display settings, try right-clicking on the desktop and see if there are any other display setting options.

If not, post back details of your video card and it maybe possible to download further display options from the manufacturers website.
