Gray TV...

  tenplus1 16:36 20 Feb 2004

I've been trying to connect my Medion laptop model 420 to my television so I can watch DVD movies in their glory...

Unfortunately after buying 2 sets of different cables and checking all the software settings for the ATI gfx card, I can only seem to view my laptop screen as a Black&White TV picture... No colour at all... :(

Any ideas, I've tried 2 sets of different cables (stereo-jack & s-video to scart) and I'm using a 28inch Matsui TV...

It seems likely that your TV does not support S Video - the black & white picture is a normal indiction of this.

I had this problem with my ei system laptop.

Have a look at the configuration settings on your tele. Look for the AV channel and select the relevant one to use S-Video.

Hope this helps!
