Can't get tv to come on as second monitor

I am stuck in bed most of the time and I am running xp.
The tv is hooked up with an s-video cable and tv plays on the computer, but I don't know how to get the programs to play on the tv.
I am 77 years old and an-incomplete quad so I am running a multimedia and need some help.
