Video is lagging behind the audio. How can I fix this?

I recently just purchased the Qosmio G25. I hooked up the digital cable box to my laptop. I connected the two by S cable. When watching TV the video lags behind the audio. How can I fix this?

Just asking. Why not call it in and make it a warranty issue so they fix, replace or refund?

This is a monitor or TV????? If it's a TV hook the cable directly to it and see if you have the same problem.
What program are you using on your laptop???? John
