Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

S video I am trying to get a movie to play from my laptop to my TV. I have a the s video hooked up but it's showing on the TV screen I have no signal. I am working on an XP op system. Any advice for me??


Answers :

Right click on an empty portion of your desktop, and go to "Properties" at the bottom.

Here you will find the display options for your computer. You will probably see that you have the option to set a new display, or add a display for use in conjunction with your current.

What you need to do is enable your second display "2", as the S-Video, so that the signal goes through to your TV, and then all should work just fine.

You may find that you need to change your resolution settings, as your tv has different dimensions and so on, but that is very easily fixed from within your display settings.

I hope that this has helped to fix your problem, good luck!

The screen on my HP pavilion dv2736us laptop stopped working completely out of the blue, with no apparent reason. It was working fine otherwise. I came back home after work to turn it on, and it came on (all the lights came on and the HD was 'whirring') - but the screen was pitch black, just like it is when it's off.
