Hi john6t9,

Welcome to PressF1! :)

You'll probably need to press the Fn button + F5 at the same time to get it to output. Even if it was being output in NTSC format, you'd see *something* if not flickering.

Hope this helps

thanks for reply ..but tried that and get nowt not even a flicker that what makes me think laptop is on ntsc because if cable is detatched and press fn+f5 only the laptop monitor is detected

Check in the bios as this is where it usually is for laptos.
