Hi all,

I have Toshiba Sattelite M70 laptop and using Windows XP . Im trying to play some videos on my laptop and watch it on TV. My TV is old and have only 1-RCA for video and 1-RCA for audio but i dont think that would make a difference (i think). I have plugged in S-video convertor to RCA cable and audio to RCA cable from laptop to TV.

I have also selected the setting in grahics card but im still not able to see or hear anything on the tv.

Can anyone help me or let me know what im doing wrong.

Thanks heaps.

You have to configure it by right mouse / properties / settings on the desktop.


Whatever the videocard is: ie: Nvidia or ATI card

Is the onboard videocard Nvidia or ATI based, or other?

The video card i have is Intel 915(GM)/GMS 910GML Express Chipset family. I have tried to set the options in the video card but i had no luck.

Is this (http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/intel915gm/sb/CS-020155.htm) what the settings look like?

Is what what you've selected?

Is this what you're seeing?

For some reason when i go to my display settings, the Multiple display options does not show.
Their is a message below the Multiple display heading says
"Please connect the appropriate adaptors for multiple display options."

I have installed the lastest drivers but have no luck. I will try and re install the drivers from the intel website.
