Hi thanks for reading this.
im running a advent laptop on windows xp home.
i am trying to connect it to my pc using a s-video lead but when i connect it to my tv nothing happens even when i press the av button on my tv remote to access the s-video channel. the user manual for my lap top tells me to open the display properties select settings and click advanced then press the nview button and check the clone option and mark the monitor 2 setting.
but when i open the display settings the nview button is not available so i cant clone to monitor 2 or access the tv out option is there any other way i can use my lap top on my pc.
many thanks in advance for all your help.

you will need a seperate audio connection facility as sv does not carry audio, if your graphics card is nvidea i use the product from click here not expensive and works a treat i have mine connected via vcr and then on to tv, most modern tv's have several av channels what tv model do you have?.
