Need help with Dell laptop S-Video output - June 5, 2008, 04:48 PM

The online stuff I've found hasn't been very helpful.

I've only been able to get the extended Desktop to display on my TV. Can't make the TV the primary monitor. ????????

Nevermind, maybe. It may just be a specific program that is not compatible. WMP will stay on the TV window fine, full screen etc. But a photo slideshow program will move back to the laptop window when it's touched.

I used to do this all the time on my old one c600. It was somewhere under display properties, setting, advanced and I think monitors. I haven't tried it on the new models yet. On a desktop I had the same problem and had to play with the settings for awhile and eventually got it to work.

Two ways:

Right Click on desktop than PROPERTIES - Click on SETTINGS tab.
Set display.

Second way is to press Blue Fn button and F8 until you get settings you want.

I'm not sure what the video chipset on that laptop is, but if it's ATI, try installing the catalyst control panel and updated drivers. There are settings for all of that stuff in there.
