First make sure your TV is set to display the right input. If it is, often times you need to reset the laptop with the TV conencted for it to work.

Oh baby, I feel your pain. What kind of RGB to RCA and S-video did you buy? Cheap one from ebay for $5?


Most of them are PASSIVE and will not work without a special adaptor, usually powered. It is not that simple to send VGA signal to S-Video/Composite.
