@ phantom6
The S-video cable does just video...no sound. If you are trying to get sound from your TV to the laptop, you will have to plug into your laptops microphone jack. It is usually a single 3.5mm analog mini-jack plug type. The audio outputs from your TV are usually RCA-type and if it is stereo, there is a left and right plug. If you go to your local computer/audio store and tell them what you are doing, they will have the cable that is RCA left-and-right on one end and the mini-jack 3.5mm plug on the other end. See here for descriptions and pictures.

Keep us posted with your progress

@ phantom6
Does his laptop have an S-video out port? If he does, then he should be able to connect an external monitor(TV) to his laptop.

When he goes 'ctrl panel>display>settings' there is no button labelled 'advanced'? In 'CP>Dis>Settings', is there a window that has two 'monitors' pictured? They should be labelled '1' and '2'. '1' will be his main laptop monitor. '2' will be the external monitor. If he right-clicks on the '2' monitor and chooses 'attached', that should get him going.

I also am having trouble getting audio to come out of the tv. I have a Vizio 42" lcd and I am using hdmi. I have the rca cable hooked up in the red and white audio ports in the hdmi area on the back of the tv and pluged into the speaker port on the sound card of the pc. Is there any settings on the tv or pc I need to switch (i.e. digital to analog) or anything like that to get sound.
