Laptop to TV connecting HELP

Hi all !

I've got a big problem . My laptop is a sony vaio fs415b with Intel gma 900 graphiccard and there is no S-video out just the VGA out . I got the
VGA to TV Converter S VIDEO & RCA out ADAPTER PC TO TV from the ebay .
click here

but when i connencted the tv ,it just nothing happened . I've tried it throught the rca cable because the TV has just Scaty or RCA input.

Is it possible to connect through this adapter or I have to buy anithing else ???

THANKS VERY MUCH for the answers and sorry for the poor english

You will need to enable the external VGA out, check in your display settings. Sometimes there is a shortvut for it. FN + F4/5 does it for three laptops I know.

I don't think your lappie has TV Out capability, so no cable you connect will make any difference.

ive seen some small box somewhere on the internet but i cant find it.
It had a vga and usb input and S-video + RCA out !!
Does anybody know what im talking about ??

Have you set the TV to the RCA input?

Yeah, acutally that cable probably wont work, you need a converter normally in a box.

I still don't think it will work - your lappie does not, as far as I can see, have TV Out capabilities.

hi technotiger ,

I've just seen on the another forums that it will work with any VGA out .

or my VGA out just for the second monitor ??

i dont undrestand that, the box will just change the output signal from the vga ?? no ??
