on the back of your laptop is a video connector (VGA). i would plug a monitor in there to gain access to computer and then troubleshoot the s-video tv out connector. some older geforce cards where not capable of outputting video to both monitor and tv at the same time. you could change from one to the other through Nvidia control panel or with a hot-key combination. this may be why you can not just plug in the s-video cable and view output on the tv.
