How do I enable or otherwise make use of this port?
There is a round connector, looking very much like a keyboard connector of old, which is labeled, "S.-video". Somewhere in the back of my mind I had imagined I could make use of this port in a pinch, such as having a broken monitor. I bought a S. video cable which plugs into this port of the laptop, the other end, nicely fitting into a nearby television. I thought it might be a great way to view medium quality movies, right off my PC!
My Compaq Presario V5000 is booting up, and otherwise running Windows, I can tell because of the flourish I hear, and other indications I'm familiar with: it's alive in there, I just can't interact with it.
Anybody know how to use the S. video port? Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
