i used to run an S-video patch cord OUT from my laptop to my lcd tv in order to watch movies with my daughter without having to watch it on a 15" screen...

i didnt do it very often so its always pretty much by guess and by golly to do so...

i THINK, just before the last time i had my computer cleaned up, was when i used it this setup successfully. when i plug everything in, set my tv to video or component, all i get on the tv is the PICTURE im using for my desktop (no icons or mouse pointer) and no video playback...

could i have inadvertently deleted a driver or something? its a real drag not being able to use my 'big screen' to watch movies...
