Displaying my computer picture on the television

  steve_0 10:54 26 Apr 2003

I have a TV-out port on the back of my laptop and have just bought a scart adaptor so that I can watch DVDs on the television.

I have plugged the cable in but I'm not getting a picture on the television.

I have found a program (TV Tool) that I have read may be necessary but it asks me what model of graphics card I have. I have no idea what model I have.

How do I find out?

Thanks for your help,

right-click the desktop and go to properties, then settings, then advanced,then adapter, what does it say for adapter type?

Select in My Computer display properties and you will come across the options to output to a TV. Sometimes there is a hotkey assigned to this like F8 and you should also be able to position the picture etc........
