well i recently bought a s-video cable because the salesman told me this cable is better then a monitor cable,because i bought a big LCD tv recently and i want to connect my computer to that screen,now i connected it. and everything works fine. only problem is. the colours are bad as hell,evrything that moves it looks like its a rainbow but when i take a screenshot everything is very clear,what can be the problem? do i need to buy a VGA cable and connect that? or is it somewhere in the settings?

Actually, if you're going for a high-quality image on a large LCD TV, you should get an HDMI cable if the TV supports it. VGA gives better quality than S-Video. If you have a DVI or HDMI capable TV, they will give an even better image. S-Video has limited bandwidth compared to other connections. The problem with the colors could be related to the graphics card. Which card are you using?
