I have a Compaq Presario 2100 that allows me to use a television as a second display via S-video. My TV doesn't have an S-video port so I bought an adaptor that turns S-video into a standard RCA plug. I can't get it to work. I go into the graphics settings and select the second monitor but I just have a black screen. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?

When I want to use a device with my TV that does not have S-Video, I needed to use an RF Modulator. You can get one for about $20 at Radio Shack. That might help you, but I do not know for a fact if it will work with a video card.
