Connect pc to tv

Oct 31, 2007 9:30AM PDT

I have a toshiba satellite M40/M45 series and trying to connect it to my tv. I plugged in the s-video cable from my pc to my tv but theres no picture on the tv. I think i need to install a tuner on my computer but not sure which one? What are my options here? Thank You for your time!

In order to get a signal from the S connectior to the TV, you need to check the video options to send the video out that connector besides the regular VGA type connector.

...(in simple language)that on the TV, you have set it to receive signals from the S-video, and you may have to disconnect your DVD player... Also check to see if the TV signal format on bith computer and TV are the same, e.g NTSC-NTSC
