hi all!hope you don't mind me asking a question with my first post...

I am trying to connect my pc to my tv. the pc is quite basic so I have a vga adaptor which converts to s video. the tv has an s video input, but when i run it through this cable I get this:

In a small update, the pc has an SiS 661 graphics card (pci)

I have tried several different resolutions, and although none of them give a clear picture it does affect what shows on the screen of the tv. set it to 800 x 600 and it just shows static...

any ideas at all?!!

Check that you have the PAL/NTSC settings correct. Also check the socket you are using on the TV. Some TVs have multiple sockets and not all of them will accept S-Video.

It depends on the video card. Do you have the user's manual? For some cards these settings can be changed in the Display Properties, for others you have to open your computer case and change some jumpers on the card.
