Hello,
I am having trouble, im not too great with computers, but anyway I bought a S Video cord to hook up my laptop to my T.V. but I cant figure out how to get it to show up, I have it hooked up throught my VCR cause my TV doesnt have the hook up on it. My Laptop is a HP Pavilion dv2000, what do I do to get the picture to come up?

You need to check the manual to see if you must press a Function key combo to activate the S-video output. It might be something like Fn + F8 or Fn + F4. Also, S-video does not carry sound. To hear the sound you need a separate audio cable from your sound card.

Good Luck
