i take it the s video is on the graphics card therefore your friend needs an s video to scart with seperate audio (will not come from the s video socket) audio needs to come from sound card or such. a couple of good sites for cables/connectors is click here and click here

johnnyrocker thank you for your help so far i have just been on the phone to clarify the situation

He has the svideo and audio cables already in place but apparently their is a key board command /shortcut to switch between the laptop monitor and the television and is trying to find out what the command /shortcut is

thanks again

You have to go into Display settings in Control Panel to set it uo for TV. If he connects the Laptop will see the TV better. Look for Dual Display

hadn't switched the tv to the av channel

thank you for the input
