I thought it would be as simple as connecting an s-video cable from the graphics card to my tv but i cannot get the signal on the tv, what gives? furthermore, please forgive my ignorance, but i thought that maybe i needed to enable a device. so from the manage devices i selected from a drop down menu; to enable the analog tv device and search for a driver on the web. i then got a "bluescreen" which shutdown my system repeatedly untill the device was disabled! i am guessing this is a terrible conceptual error. Can somene set me straight?

Hi bhardini.
You need to configure both the television's video input and your computers video output to work together.
Start by making sure your television video input is set to use the svideo connection on the correct channel (video1, video2, etc) via the setup menu on the tv itself. Your manual should tell you how to do this. You must also know the resolutions your tv is capable of displaying and set your computers video s output resolution accordingly or you will get nothing on the screen as well. Finally, you'll need to make sure your computers video card\system is configured to actually use the tv as a monitor.
If all this sounds confusing (it's usually very simple), please post make and model of tv and video card you're using.
You didn't give us much to go on. :thumbsup:
